    Sunday 26 June : UPDATE ÔÇô European GP - Valencia

    Formula 1

    Vettel won the race to turn 1 and began to streak away from the crowd jammed into the turn. As they filtered out he was followed by Webber, Alonso, Massa, Rosberg and Button.

    The first round of pit stops allowed Hamilton to move up behind his teammate. Over in the Mercedes pit Schumacher pitted from P6 after Hamilton's return and came in contact with Petrov as he exited. On the next lap he was forced to return to the pits for a new nose. The incident dropped him from dueling for P6 to a P22 return and a long climb to gain any points for himself and his team. Race officials reviewed the incident and no action was taken.

    Red Bull were 1-2 until the 21st lap when Alonso was able to overtake Webber in the first DRS zone and make the pass stick. At that point the gap to Vettel was under three seconds but by the time the next round of pit stops began on lap 30 Vettel had stretched his lead to over 18 seconds allowing him to pit and retain his P1 slot on his return to the fray.

    Alonso was not as fortunate as Vettel. His lead over Webber was marginal and the charging Australian set a fast lap as the round of stops began allowing him to catch and pass his Spanish rival while he was in the pits.

    Massa had briefly held the lead during all of this but quickly lost it and tumbled down to P5 as Hamilton passed him for P4. Massa settled in ahead of Button who was complain to his pits of problems with his KERS.

    After this round of stops all the points paying positions were still running on softs meaning there would be one more round of pit stops to come. 3.6 seconds covered the potential podium finishers at this point with Hamilton a full 18 seconds off their pace in P4. Vettel had put P16 and below a lap down as he set another fast lap on lap 36/57.

    Setting the stage for the last round of pit stops there is little separating the podium contenders but the script seems to favor the Red Bull team. They have shown better times on the compound they will finish the race on than Ferrari has.

    Vettel's pit stop preparation strategy appears to be to use the blue flag and his car advantage to set a series of fast laps. His name was lit up in purple on the live timing board for three laps. He opened up nearly 4 second lead over Webber in P2 who had a second-and-half lead on Alonso at this point. The gap to Hamilton in P4 had widdened to over 30 seconds.

    On lap 42 Webber pitted for his final stop yeilding P2 to Alonso. Hamilton pitted and rejoined behind Massa and Button but the Brazilian needed to make a stop and his KERS-less teammate is has been told to make as long a run as he can before pitting.

    While all of this was going on Vettel had opened the gap to 6.4 seconds over Alonso and had lapped the field to P7.

    Lap 47 saw Alonso finally pit for his last set of tires. He maintained his position ahead of Webber but the leader's gap now was shown as 20.7 seconds. At this point Vettel's barring a pit problem Vettel's lead seemed secure.

    Webber was putting immense pressure on Alonso with less than a second separating the two. The question at this point was could Webber put a pass on Alonso to help protect his teammates lead or would the pressure to defend position be enough to slow the Spaniard down?

    While Alonso in his Ferrari as dueling with the Red Bull team the once stellar McLarens were languishing in P5 and P6. Button had mad it past Hamilton after Hamilton's final pit stop. The pair were 53+ and 58+ seconds behind the leader. Massa in P4 was just shy of 42 seconds behind Vettel but more importantly for Ferrari he had almost 12 seconds in hand over Button. Both had yet to make their final pit stop. With almost 20 seconds on Hamilton there was little fear of loosing position to him but Button could still present a problem.

    On lap 47 Vettel made his final pit stop and then went out to set new fast laps once again. Two laps later Massa and Button both pitted and Hamilton served up egg to put on my face as he passed the pair to retake P4.

    Webber's pit radio crackled with instructions for him to 'short shift' a clear indication that he would finish the race nursing his car to the end if possible Alonso passed him to take P2

    As the flag fell the points paying top ten drivers were

    1 Vettel
    2 Alonso
    3 Webber
    4 Hamilton
    5 Massa
    6 Button
    7 Rosberg
    A lap down -
    8 Alguersuari
    9 Sutil
    10 Heidfeld

    The rest of the field:
    11 Perez
    12 Barrichello
    13 Buemi
    14 Di Resta
    15 Petrov
    16 Kobayashi
    17 Schumacher
    18 Maldonado
    19 Kovalainen
    20 Trulli
    21 Glock
    22 D'Ambrosio
    23 Luzzi
    24 Karthkeyan

    Results are unofficial at this time.

I have set up housekeeping in temporary lodgings in one of the larger suburbs of Lilydale Mn. I have landed a short term project management gig that will support me while a continue defining and refining the next iteration of my life's adventure looks like. A week ago it all caught up with me. I am doing fine again and ready to haunt the forum with my daily posts.

    Thank you to all who sent birthday wishes.

    Team BMW Motorrad France drivers have been show to Ledenon this weekend!
    [Translation by Bing]
    29.06.2011

    In trials, S?®bastien Gimbert still won the superpole with a 1'21 "980 track record or a second better than the best time he had done in 2010. Erwan Nigon finished second to the Superpole with an excellent time of 1'22 "508.Les two pilots of the BMW Motorrad France Team and the Michelin tyres have still demonstrated this weekend their potential and that of the S1000RR to dominate test and realize of chronos that other competitors are still unable to reach. In the first race marked by the long action of the safety car, S?®bastien finished second with the best time in third race and Erwan. The second race the two pilots of the Team BMW Motorrad France engaged in a great fight, S?®bastien finally won the victory followed by Erwan who signs the best time in the race after have done it much.

    S?®bastien Gimbert: "Although we have come to test last winter on this tour we have on a new basis of settings reset because the conditions were not the same;" There was a lot of wind so we have of making a few changes. The two qualifying sessions lasted well I realize the best time of the two which well gave me leg to the superpole. I didn't think it was possible to improve with the wind but I went there and I sign the crossing the track record. I decided for the tests to work as the Vigeant with two machines and in a very short time with the technical team we have a super moto work me corresponds well and Michelin always brings us very efficient tyres which we earned this satisfactory result today. The start is very important here and I would especially not me to lock in the first turn as the Vigeant. Not too bad, I went to the first race I was just behind Erwan party in mind but with the second round, the fall of a competitor has resulted in the intervention of the safety because during 6 towers. It was difficult to resume a good pace on after long slow turns and it was also put tyres in proper temperature to new gas. I manage to double Erwan but I had in my Julien Da Costa wheel that put me the pressure. I was able to counter all these attacks but four rounds before the end he managed to head. I then decided to follow him and seeing that it was faster than me in the first part but not in the last two my strategy was to be an attack in the last round in the last partial but unfortunately the number indicated by the direction of race was false and the race stopped a tour earlier that what was announced I have therefore not been wear my attack as planned. I am delighted at the second race, I have a better start than this morning and I wanted to escape but I felt good that Erwan resisted. I am not forced to preserve my tyres and at the time where we ride past competitors Erwan passes me. I stayed behind him to analyze the or I was the better to prepare for an attack. We have caught up with other competitors and I took advantage to give a pressure kick showing my bike mudguards which rejected it and I passed. I had the chance to finish my tour correctly because with effortlessly was not at all clear that I retain the head. "I would like to thank me my team really good work and BMW France and Michelin high-performance equipment that we provide and my fans who encourage me this weekend."

    Erwan Nigon: "the first two sessions free I used to get back in rhythm and establish baseline of settings because we had not driven since the Vigeant.". We immediately found good bases which could allow me to work for the race from the first qualifying session.This has paid since in race tyre I was the fastest of the session. This qualifying session put me in confidence to the superpole does not quite held as I had envisaged it. The chrono on my motorcycle indicated me incorrect time which has hindered me because I for?ºais but I saw not the chronos down and it is that when I returned to the stand that I discovered my true chrono. I am left a last run to try to regain the pole to S?®bastien and in the last round I realize two good first partial but in the third I could not demote a speed which made me lose any earned advance.

    I went well in the first race I realized the holeshot and I kept the head of the race more than half but the intervention of the safety because during six tours allowed other prosecutors to pick us up and this long intervention really broke us the rhythm. Once the safety because party S?®bastien doubled and then four rounds before the end is Julien Da Costa double me. In this round I made a small slide which made me lose contact I wanted to force back in two towers it was doable but the error in the direction of race in the number of remaining Tower has not allowed me to achieve my goal. I am not party to the second race and it was left to S?®bastien free to escape. I lost a few tours in the catch up then I returned him six tenth in a tower and it allowed me the double then. I was at the top of escape but impossible it was such and heat intense ca began to drag. I knew that Sebastian would wear me an attack and I knew where to meet in the last round but I was locking up by competitors that we had caught up and I could not achieve my goal. Still, I am really satisfied with my technical team and Michelin which provides high-performance tyres and BMW France tuned for their confidence two years.

    BMW Motorsport bids farewell to Mario Theissen

    Over the years I dinged Mario Theissen more than once in various F1 thread rantings. The overall truth is BMW racing and F1 are better for having had him around. I hope you join me in wishing him the best as he takes his leave from the number 1 seat of BMW Motorsport.

    New paint finishes for the BMW Motorrad model year 2012


    BMW Motorrad presents two new special models. BMW R 1200 GS Adventure Triple Black and BMW F 800 GS Trophy

    Due to the great success of the special model BMW R 1200 GS Triple Black launched in 2010, the corresponding special model of the travel enduro's popular "elder sibling" now follows at the request of large numbers of customers: the BMW R 1200 GS Adventure Triple Black. A range of details highlight the marked enduro character of the BMW F 800 GS Trophy. It has an exclusive paint finish in Alpine white and Desert blue in conjunction with special decor elements. Large hand protectors with attachment spoiler, an aluminium engine guard and a seat in Black/Rallye grey add touches of dynamic style




    FWIW

    The potential repeal of Michigan's helmet law may spark a thread or two on the forum. It is a point that divides many motorcyclist into opposing camps. What will be missed in the debates and myriad of statistics and reports is the what is the core issues for me; what were the causes that resulted in the need for a helmet in the first place and what can we do to avoid them.

    The guys down at the Official Fly-Over-Land coffee shop always sipped their Reindeer Antler coffee and talked about riding their iron horses. I have always thought of my Roadster as a bird of prey free to soar over the map and then dive in at something that catches our eye. I don't think this guy cares one way or the other about metaphors and would kick our collective butts if we got out of line anywhere on the Mongolian countryside and bothered either his horse or bird of prey.

    Then I check out BIKEEXIF and find a R 80 GS that I am certain readers will love.



    After working downloading the R 80 pictures I realize I missed this little Monkey.
