I hope this inital showing by the BMW team isn't an indication of things to come. I'd like to see Corser and Xaus do well on the Bimmer.

Wow the Beemer looks really good. Hit by a bird huh, not good! Remember a mongoose running across the track once in Hawaii at about a buck fifty, think I ran over his tail but never had enough reaction time to do anything about it. My heart was so far up my throat a barley was able to brake for the next turn.

Love to see this happen aswell although I think it will take more than a year to get the bike competitive, if at all. Love the looks though.

As long as the birds stay away from my flight tomorrow I'll be happy.

Yikes!

Saw something about that on the news the other day. A Turkey went right threw the windshield of a small airplane.

The BMW will be just fine. Troy will take the year and develop the bike. Expect podium results by June. It's the Aprilia that should have a edge. That motor seems ready. It's the suspension that needs to be sorted.
