Kropotkin has a link to some friends on his Motomatters site that will help you out if interested.

Healing thoughts for Marquez. It's been said before, but bears repeating: talent alone is not enough. Among other accessories, you need luck. Sounds like he's due some; hope it happens soon. At least he is taking care of himself.

Pilbara, fabulous effort. Brings us all to the test in a way that no-one else has managed anywhere, AFAIK. Very intimate: we could have been on the spot and missed most of what you have shown us. Another chapter in the Annals of Unparalleled Access at advrider.com. (Rivals Jim McDermott's engagement after he rode the Multistrada 1200 at the Lanzarote press launch.) Feels special just looking on.

Great images and very cool to get the inside perspective to the testing.
As an engineer and former machinist, all those parts images are pure porn.

The sound you captured makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

I'd forgotten what those things sounded like.

Thanks for bring us along.

Here is older footage of Suter-BMW:



Also, there was a cool ride-by video from Toby Moody posted last year. This video captured the sound from the main straight in Brno and then braking into 1st corner. Sound on the overrun was nothing short of amazing. Shame the video doesn't seem to be working anymore.

I would NOT use word: BUDGET, anywhere near a photo like this...

Thanks for the bike porn.

I think the Ducatis look better every year... looking less and less like a dolphing... getting slim and beautiful.

Looks like they used white-out to label it, too.

It screams: "Oops, forgot to install a kill switch..."
