Pics, does the setup look ok (overhang)?

Ok here is the rundown, I'm going to the Mountain for a second time tomorrow. I am picking this up really well. I actually took my Burton Freestyle bindings back to Dicks Sporting Goods Today and switched out for the Burton Custom Bindings.

Anyway, I want to know if it looks like I have everything centered ok etc.

I have
2008 Burton 162 King (Wide Board)
2009 Burton Moto sz 13 Boots
2009 Burton Custom Large Bindings
Ride Angles: +18/-6
(I'm goofy footed, design side of board I thought was the back and black side of board is front 'right foot')

It looks like I could extend the "ramped gas pedal" an extra 2 clicks to fit further under my boots, but if I did this it too would hang over the board.

Here we go:





Yes, yes, I know I am a walking Burton billboard so get over it. I like the stuff so far and I got great deals on everything.

Your angles look +6/-18. Not the other way around.

In this picture the binding at the top is your front foot, it looks like it is set at +6. The binding at the bottom looks -18, your right foot. Thats a weird stance, your front foot should be angled up more.

I could be wrong, but it looks like your boot is not centered in your binding.

In this picture the "Design" part of the board I was told was the back. The boot on the black part of the board I thought was the front. Wait, I could be wrong lol. My head hurts.

honestly i would move the bindings back. it looks like you have a considerable amount of toe overhang. I have a pretty narrow board and size 11.5 boots and I had to move my bindings all the way back to line up with the heelside edge. It looks like you have plenty of room to move em back before you had any overhang on heelside
