Had he not lost it, I believe he still would have pulled off a win.

He still could have lost it trying to start in gear.  By "lost it," I meant control of the bike, not lose the race.    :redface:

He'd be dead if he touched the front brakes.

On a more serious note, there was a test where they raced a BMW1000 vs a rallye car vs a Atom, in the rain, unfortunately.

In raw acceleration, the bike won every time.

The Atom, which should have been competitive, could not get traction in the rain.

So, BMW, Rallye Car, Atom, in that order.

I believe the order of events was BMW, Rally car, lunch at a local joint, Atom.

Anyone that says inline 4's have no torque is crazy... well, at least that one does. Epic fail, in front of a huge crowd....
