    Well its WSB at Most this weekend - should be worth a watch, WSBs is on fire this year.   :047:

    If you watch Scott going around on his own it looks fantastic on the bike, and hopefully they have taken a step forward on the BMW by listening to his feedback at last. I guess we will see - fingers crossed that he will soon be chasing the podium more often rather than the midfield    :152:

    It’s interesting watching BMW cuz they’ve turned up in WSB with the ‘We are so superior’ attitude you know the one that all GS owners have when they buy a new one 😂.

    The reality is there’s a time honoured route that Reading knows well and they(BM)ain’t having any of it, perfect example is they are trying to use a stock clutch as opposed to a race option never mind coming to terms with the race traction control which is a law unto itself, add in the variety of exhaust set ups and fuel maps and theirs a steep learning curve out there, the good news the motor looks fairly quick.

    Yeah, I saw BMW jumped all over Dorna for putting a caption up that said "New Kalex Swingarm" under Scott reading's bike. Next time they showed the caption it read "New BMW Swingarm"   :027:

    In fairness the media were a little unfair to BM cuz what you see out on the track no matter which bike has little to do with what is in the show room, but then again take the trouble to read the regs they do say it’s a silhouette class.

    Another good weekend considering how he and BMW started the year. Five top fives in the last six races, including two podiums and in race one this weekend he was chasing down Bautistu for the lead until he got taken off track by a very ambitious move from Toprack.

    He has definitely become the best of the rest now.  :062:

    Wondered if their would be any posts, not only some of the best WSB racing i’ve Ever seen and I can go way back, and yes BM while still having a way to go at least have got over their ego trip and listened to Reading and the future looks very interesting.

    Just wonder why commentators keep on about the Kalex arm, when frankly non of the bikes are remotely stock.
