Dayum that thing looks the business!
The conundrum that is life...
You have to be absolutely smashed to have the guts to attempt it,
But perfectly sober to achieve any success!

I wonder if Nasser Al Atiya will be driving one? He sounded very happy with the one that he used in Qatar early this year!

Post the Clip please?

Last recognition? I guess they drive the planned course and check whether anything needs to change.

Nice!  :thumleft:

Some bad news: Bordone-Ferrari will most probably not be at the start line next year, as all their bikes, vans and equipment have been seized by their creditors (link in Italian). They have 4 bikes left (probably KTM 450 RR's) which escaped seizure because they were at the chief mechanic's home in Spain. :-\
