Haley Kalil shared a series of new snapshots to her Instagram page in which she aspires to recreate “those gorgeous” shots of models on bikes, but her rendition didn’t come out as planned — at least she didn’t think so.

Earlier this week, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model took to the popular social media app to share a triple update of herself on or next to a bike as she rocked a thong that put her curvy backside fully on display. In the photos, Kalil — who is married to NFL player Matt Kalil — is rocking a light gray tank top with thick straps that go over her shoulders. The top features soft fabric and a low-cut neckline that highlights the model’s cleavage. She teamed her top with a pair of black thong bikini bottoms that sit high on her frame, leaving her derriere and wide hips in full evidence.

In the first shot, Kalil is facing the camera as she sits with her feet up on the top tube of the bike. The model is grabbing onto the handles as she strikes a funny face for the shot. The second photo shows Kalil in a similar position, though this time her feet are on the ground as she leans forward onto the handle. She is sticking her tongue out at the onlooker. In the third snapshot, the model is standing next to the bike with her back to the camera. This shot showcases her body and thong more clearly than the previous ones.

After her caption, Kalil included the hashtag “not an ad” to indicate that she didn’t get paid for this post. In the photos, Kalil wore her red hair down, though she plays with different styles in each photo.

Since going live, the post — which Kalil shared with her 277,000 Instagram followers — has garnered more than 14,400 likes within about a day of being published, as of the time of this writing. Within the same time period, the photos also attracted upwards of 170 comments.

Users of the social media platform who are fans of the swimsuit model took to the comments section to engage with her humorous caption, while also sharing their admiration for Kalil.

“You can sell a bike to me any day,” one user wrote, trailing the words with a heart-eyes emoji.

“[U]nimaginably pretty and that is a nice bike,” said another user.

“These are fantastic!!” a third fan chimed in.
