configure BGP  when Static Routes are used.

in the topology below we have 2 routers in 2 different AS numbers. If we configure  the 2 routers with static route or default route, so that they will have reachability
 then can we configure BGP  peering between the 2 routers based on their physical interfaces' ip addresses and redistribute connected networks, I wonder if BGP will have any  meaning, because Static or Default routes will be preferred over BGP protocol as their AD is lower than BGP AD.

Anyone to shade some lights on this ?

Thank you
