    No idea how this new design will run, but they always build very pretty bikes!

    Does that clutch look really far back? Further back than normal?

    Sure does, I'm also keeping an eye on that carbon heat shield back by the rear exhaust header noodle.

    Aprilia Team intro. I expect these boys will have some pressure on them to win. :wink:

    I think they are both talented enough to win against anyone else on the grid.

    I haven't seen anything here but no WSBK on SpeedTV?

    Can't find it on Speed's website schedule.

    Found this about PI with 2 weeks to go:
    "2/12 - No news yet as to if and when race will be televised" on TVRacer.com

    Apparently they have dropped WSBK and F1 in a rush to be a Mainstream Sports channel.
    I'd start looking for a new provider of WSBK if I lived over that side of the ditch.

    It is possiible it might be available for live viewing via the WSBK website in the US since there are no rights holders.

    If not

    http://www.firstrow1.eu/

    http://www.vipbox.tv

    will both have live links to view online. Make sure your popup blocker and adblocker are working. You will have your choice of several live broadcasts from around the world in multiple languages.

    It will be even better if the WSBK site allows on demand viewing so we can watch when we want like with the Moto GP no spoiler link.

    WSBK allowed this a few seasons ago before SPEED got wise. I won't miss SPEED one bit. :D

    I use them all the time.

    Ignore all of that stuff about needing to download or update anything.

    My popup blocker and adblocker work really well and I don't see most of that stuff. At worst, I see blank boxes with red X's.

    At least we won't have to listen to those 2 boobs (Scott and Ralph) when WSBK comes here to Utah. Scott may be fast on a bike, but get him out of the booth. And Ralph needs to announce roller-derby or something like that.

    Fortunately they only were the announcers for one round and due to poor audio mixing the sound of the bikes usually drowned them out.

    BTW, thanks for the possible video links

    Not only will your ears be spared Scott and Ralph, you won't even have to listen motorcycle engines this year in Utah.

    And the AMA is planning subscription only newsprint coverage for that series this season. They are forward thinkers. :1drink

    If they are smart, they won't even allow amateur video coverage.
