Seems like the S1000rr also got the hit, and still got pulled.

Are these races run what you brought, or at these bikes running similar modifications/fuel?

A more consistent way to run 9/10ths (or any roll-type race) is to have a fixed spot such as a sign or object and go once passing that.


This lightweight jockey on the BMW wanted to go from a head nod.


Problem with head nod is many people get anxious and start speeding up the count, going on 2 or 2ish, etc. We've seen this numerous times.


If this was a money race it would have been considered a false start and thus invalid, hence why it makes more sense to go from a fixed object.


Most street bikes are stock motor and pump gas. You do get the occasional guy with nitrous or motor work or both. But almost everyone out there owns and rides a stock motor bike.



Most of the runs are "free" runs as in no money. To make things fair sometimes the person with an lower performance index (heavier rider, less HP, etc) will try and negotiate a head start or race gas or caw caw caw.


This foolish rider on the BMW actually "called out" the other 1000s. You can see how foolish it is to call someone out when your bike tops out well before the finish line. From their point of view they do short bursts and beat the average overweight garbage modded Busa or whatever so in their mind they believe they are untouchable....until you run into people that have the bike dialed in in terms of gearing, aero, a/f etc etc etc.


It was predicted ahead of time that the GSXR would put about 17 bikes on the BMW by the finish. And they were right, it was a slaughter.
