Bio Diesel BWM Moto anyone?
Bio-Beemer breaks record
Shove a reworked diesel engine from a BMW 3 Series into the revised frame of a R 1150RT and hang on. A group of privateers recently did that and saw the clock hit 210km/h. Now they want more.

I can smell the french fries!
No final drive failure
That's cause they didn't use a new (1200 series) final drive. The bike does appear to have Iron Butt qualities.

Well, it looks like they used a BMW 3 Series enginge... Many of these can be converted to "bio" with little or no modifications.
I know the taxi's in Berlin have been running on "bio" for at least 2 years now, and the cab-drivers hardly know the difference.
