Science Channel Mega Machines SBK
« on: January 26, 2018, 01:30:04 pm »
Last night the 25th (Robbie Burns Night), the Science Channel had a great program on Superbike tech with a SBK racer on an Aprilia V4.

https://www.sciencechannel.com/tv-shows/mega-machines/

The knowledge was not in depth for most of the guys here, but was very approachable for the GUM (great unwashed masses) about motorcycle racing technology.

This was Episode 4, on Mega Machines and it is not yet posted on the show listing on the science channel site.

Really good "insider" look at SBK tech.

Thanks, good show. Burns supper in Sandbank by Dunoon was great fun.

We had a Burns supper in Texas, unfortunately the haggis was tinned, but still very tasty with neeps & tattis.

Belhaven stout and a wee dram of 21 yr single malt with a toast to the Bard afterwards.
