    I remember as a kid being totally in awe watching Steve Baker clean up while racing it.

    Hilarious, and awesome. Just watched it. Hope they have more races. Given the outcome, I am almost sure of it.

    Watching Gilim back the Harley into the turns was fantastic.

    Anybody been watching Troy Corser kicking ass on an 82 year old BMW at Goodwood? Watching him blast down the track on that hard tail and reaching across the tank to hand shift is racing beauty.

    I found that a few days ago, thanks. Really eye-opening to see those guys backing it in on a bagger. If the series goes on and needs some sort of BOP adjustment they can just put six-packs in the saddlebags.

    Looking the pic someone posted (above?) the bikes look to be as close to real baggers as stock cars are to your dad's Dodge, if you know what I mean. I think marketing has a lot to do with this race.
