I called that switch nearly two weeks ago. Very cool. BMW's should play well with most of the tracks.

That's a good switch. My prediction: Pegram will do better on the BMW this next year better than he did on the Ducati this past year.

Of course, I was hoping for more from Danica this past year!

I expect the 4cyl to treat him well. He raced private Honda's from several seasons during the Mladin, DuHamel, N Hayden and Yates prime of the 2000-2003 years.
It's the engine breaking that he'll have to get used to the most. Those Ducati's can throw the whoa when you chop the throttle.

The next thing for Pegram to sort is his electronics package. The BMW-developed WSB system has a huge price tag, so Larry might have to adapt a Marelli system like he used on the Duc. It should be fun to watch!

Indeed, it is all in the electronics these days at this level.

Larry is a talented vet rider. It will be fun to watch BMW compete. Good choice by BMW to go with Peagram.

Yeah - package sorting is Very Important. That's why I sort mine every night before bedtime. But no - you can't watch.......
