S1000RR On Ice

Thanks to Max BMW for creating and posting this interesting video of the new S1000RR going through it paces... on ice... with studded tires. Not exactly the target audience that BMW has for this machine, but what the heck?

Good call. I wouldn't want to be standing anywhere behind or immediately to the side of that thing when he does a "burn out" ("ice out"...?). I don't know if tire studs can fail, but I wouldn't want to find out, either.
