BMW: Endurance World Championship and Superbike World Championship are mutually enriching

 BMW: Endurance World Championship and Superbike World Championship are mutually enriching BMW sends works teams to the starting line in both championships: Motorcycle Racing Director Marc Bongers explains how the projects are mutually beneficial BMW returned this season with the presentation of the current S1000RR Back to the Superbike World Championship in 2019. In parallel to the WSBK project, a team was also set up in the World Endurance Championship. The experience gained from both championships should help advance the BMW superbike faster.

As if we needed another reminder to keep our eyes on the road, a herd of deer in rural Oakland County, Michigan demonstrates just how havoc can be wreaked in a split second. Leaping ungulates recently darted right in front of, over, and on top of an innocent BMW 5 Series merrily traveling down a wooded road, and it was all captured on dashcam.

The video took place on February 26 but was released earlier this week by the Oakland County Sheriff's Office. The footage shows a black Bimmer driving through a remote, forested route. Suddenly, a group of deer jump out from the trees ahead of the car, prompting the driver to slam on their brakes and swerve into the shoulder. Despite the BMW's strong brakes, there's still enough momentum from the 4,000-pound sedan to carry it into the river of Bambis.

  Top Long-distance Touring Motorcycles of 2020 The best true touring motorcycles, baggers, and light touring bikes of 2020True tourers are the bikes that make no sacrifices for styling; they’re utilitarian machines designed for covering long miles, and they’re the best at hitting that mark. Baggers are more traditionally styled bikes equipped with hard bags and fairings; these are also equipped for long miles, but with a larger consideration toward styling. And the light tourers here are unfaired motorcycles without hard saddlebags, but that can still handle serious long-mile use with some modifications.

We're sure the deer were just as perplexed. "What is up with this a large steel object suddenly plowing into our procession? We're running ova here!" Luckily, white-tails can jump, and one surges straight up, landing on the roof of the BMW and bounding off into the forest like nothing ever happened. Another one isn't so fortunate, landing on the trunk and sliding off back towards the direction is came from. Hopefully it found its friends later.

The action was recorded on the dashcam of an Oakland County Sheriff's cruiser. The office reassures us that no animals, hoofed or human, were injured. However, we do have to applaud the quick reflexes of the BMW driver, though we'd probably be pretty on-alert if we were driving a BMW ahead of a police car on a lonely road as well.

So the lesson here, kids, is only buy cars that have good brakes and sharp handling! No, wait, it was keep your eyes on the road. But also, buy good cars too.
