BMW Motorrad's stunt rider, Chris Pfeiffer was recently in Moscow for a motorcycle exhibition, but ended up performing on his F800 for audiences outside the Cathedral of Saint Basil! And what did the local authorities have to say about that? Says Pfeiffer, “Luckily for me, one of the guys from BMW had a contact with the local police – who all ride BMW bikes – and he had seen one of my shows, so we were able to get permission."
While the F800 remains his favourite stunt bike, Chris has also been using the BMW HP2 Megamoto in some of his shows. He says, “While the F800 is the best bike out there for technical stunts, the Megamoto's raw power is superb for power drifting and things like crazy stoppies, when I stand on one cylinder!”
Chris will also be present at the 100th Isle of Man TT event in June this year, doing what he does best. “I'm looking forward to going to the Isle of Man centenary TT in June because there will be about eight of the world's best stunt riders there and we're all going to put on shows as well as compete against each other.”
Finally, Chris is also training hard for the forthcoming Erzberg Rodeo, where he hopes to be riding the new BMW 450cc single-cylinder sport enduro, which recently made its debut at the World Enduro Championship round in Puerto Lumbreras, Spain. Says Chris, “I've had a couple of test rides on this bike and it is unbelievably good.” If you absolutely insist, Mr Pfeiffer…
