After signing with BMW Motorrad to ride the new F800s for the 2008 season, BMW wasted no time in putting me to the test in the form of a demo at the annual Dealer Meeting in front of all the corporate BMW big wigs.

The event was held in San Diego on top of the USS Midway, a retired aircraft carrier. The show actually took place on the flight deck of the ship and along with the extremely slippery and dew covered surface, the organizers did it up right with fog machines, strobe and ground lights, a DJ, and of course the #1 MC in the country, Thomas Evans.

For 20 minutes I was able to tear up some US Government property to impressively wild cheers from the BMW folks. In the end, with the taillight smashed out of the bike, I spent close to an hour signing autographs, talking bikes, and booking shows.

As usual, the Shift gear looked hot as did my Scorpion helmet, and the Maxxis tires worked well on the difficult surface. Stay tuned to to find out when you can catch me at a BMW dealership near you!
