Congrat's to BMW...

While not "luxury touring" or "RT" related, congratulations to BMW on their win at the prestigious Isle of Mann TT. Michael Dunlop raced a specially prepared S1000RR to victory in the demanding 6-lap event. The Velocity channel is covering this year's races - most are re-broadcast several times (generally late at night or during the wee hours). If you've never seen these races, make it a point to check them out - these guys are a very special breed. The on-bike video is spectacular.

Whilst the win may not impact sales much here in the U.S., it's a pretty safe bet sales of their 1000R and 1000RR will jump in Europe.

Re: Congrat's to BMW...

I think it is awesome to win it on the first go. I was at the 2012 TT and topped my rental RT out on the mountain run....was passing GSX-r's was a blast. I can not recommend enough to go once in a lifetime. No other sensation of speed like it. I think I may go again......
