    Wes,
    apropos of nothing – any connection between you and the “Wes Siler ’08″ tag left in a bar in the Village? -Dan

      I doubt it.

    What’s with all the writing on the track?

    Great video! Wonder if Rossi will do the Nurburgring
    after he does the TT. Geoff Duke won both on a Gilera in ’55.

      Isn’t Duke the one who won every Grand Prix he entered? Or nearly?

      • aeolus

        Just about, after he switched from Nortons to Gilera. Absent mechanical trouble, he would win. He thought Nurburgring was more difficult than the TT as there are few landmarks as one can see in the video.

    Reminds me of Jorund Seim’s old ‘Ring videos that I still have saved.

    There does seem to be a lot more writing than there used to be…

    Wonder how much quicker this bike would have lapped during a time attack session?

    It will be interesting to see if BMW continuously changes the 1000RR platform like the Big 4 do to their bikes.

    Improving/Adjusting the chassis, engine, and the combination thereof is one thing, but according to the mainstream mags, the Big 4 have an “all-new” chassis or whatever every 2-3 years

    How much of that is marketing from both the OEMs and the publications?

    Amazing bike. See how smooth it was and that sound with a “stock” exhaust?

  • johnny
