RSV4 and S1000RR

I can embed vid in this forum...



When the Aprilia goes wide and the BMW repasses on the long straight (at 1:50), my ass cheeks clenched as he broke big for the turn and it looked like the rear end got squirrley. I flashed back to my off track excursion early this year... (Although I wasn't going 270km/h )

'73 Honda CB500F- slow but fun.
'77 Yamaha XS 750 triple- kinda

Cool. What is that blinking light just to the right of tach-shift indicator? Too bad you couldn't switch the sound of the In-line 4 to the v4..

Hate to say it, but the Aprilla seems to be doing a better job in the corners. It gets some distance when it's in front of the BMW, but the rear camera has it on the butt of the BMW when behind.

Who knows the skill level of either rider or how hard they were riding.

But dayum that Aprilia is sexy.

The BMW is, well, purposeful?

How teutonic.
