Germans and racing

We all know Germans are engineering genius. They have to be or with there lack of marketing skills they couldn't sell a pizza in Etheopia. They just come out with add campaign portraying people riding on one knee /track days ect saying live life on the edge . BMW comes out with GROUND BREAKING CARBON FIBER CHASSIS on there S1000RR RACE model yet not a whisper of a factory team actually racing it . Sorry BMWs..Grass Roots.. spread the wealth to privateers was just
a CEO having a temper tantrum because they had the best bike but didn't win right out of the box.

BMW great bikes , still best platform and the engine other engineers use as a example. Yamaha , Kawasaki now use BMWs valve train fingers .
Point is BMW either go in or get out , you strattle the fence like politicians .

Perhaps BMW don't regard racing as a cost effective way to sell bikes anymore? After all, I have seen Honda win Moto GP and Ducati win superbikes but I have never bought one .....

Haha funny! If this forum wasn't filled with so many world wide users and mostly USA based users you would have been blasted for categorizing people
Not sure but maybe in Germany there aren't as many junior circuit racing leagues?
I am going to guess Italy has the most followed by Spain and then the USA since there are so many Italian and Spaniard riders.
Sports that are more popular outside of the USA always invoke great nationalism witch at times is hard to find in the USA.
I do not ride or like Ducati that much but I had to root for Ducati and Dovizioso during the last MotoGP race.

On another note Camier has the Honda well into the 1:39s. 1:39.797 to be exact. Working his magic after only 2 days.
