BMW 800 on Springfield 1 Mile Track

Not good results, it ran dead ass last in every race it was entered in but it did finish and some others did not. It sounded like it was turning 15,000 RPM or more like a chain saw. It appears that it needs a lot more horsepower to challenge the Harley 750.

Talking Re: BMW 800 on Springfield 1 Mile Track

We went to the short track night race, and the next day we went to the mile.

They know how to prep a track over there. We liked watching the modified 450 mx bikes racing around the short track. The mile is so fast wow! How could you slide a bike going that fast.

We saw the BMW it looks Kool but needs more track time.

We had a good time check it out Dale.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
