1935 BMW rss absolutely flogged…

This came from Cycle World online but is just SO damn good that I had to share. If you want to see the original post link below!

Watch Troy Corser Push a 1935 BMW RSS to Its Absolute Limit at Goodwood

If you’re a fan of those racers who push everything they ride to the absolute limit, then you’re probably already a fan of Troy Corser.

A two-time World Champion, Corser has raced everything from a Ducati 916 to an Aprilia RSV-Mille, GSX-R1000, and, later, a BMW S1000RR in the World Superbike Champioship. All this after winning the 1994 AMA Superbike Championship and becoming the first non-American to win that title, aboard a Fast by Ferracci Ducati. He’s simply fast on everything.

More recently, Corser was recruited to ride a 1935 BMW RSS in the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed, and in true Corser fashion, he rode the absolute snot out of it.

Perhaps what’s best about the ride (and clip), is how you see Corser being relatively easy with inputs and letting the bike move around beneath him. It’s an impressive display of riding skill and faith in his own ability, and we doubt anyone visiting Goodwood that day expected to see that RSS be ridden as hard as it was.

Then again, Corser was on it, so maybe they did. Now if only the bike was as willing as Corser was…

Side note: We hope Corser had a good deal worked out with the owner of the RSS, because he ended up crashing the bike during the race, as he exited the chicane and ran wide into some standing water. Ouch.
