faffi Posted October 2, 2011 Report Share Posted October 2, 2011 Fantastic to see Checa finally taking a title Was also interesting to watch the onboard camera; Checa looks to calm and relaxed, almost like in slow motion compared to for instance Stoner, who looks very busy and hectic. Since Stoner is faster than Checa, hectic is probably good, but calm cannot be half bad, either Also interesting to see how wide the handlebars are on the current SBK bikes, bringing back memories of the Spencer/Lawson/Schwantz era of AMA Superbike racing. Compared to an old school cockpit, with narrow clipons turned in and down, it is very apparent that they choose leverage over aerodynamics these days.
