If only you had been there with us...you could have had an incredible time too!

Perfect weather, great people, fabulous racing, the sound of those bikes warming up (and I guess unbrella girls for some)...what more could one want? :D You just cannot get the full effect of MotoGP racing without being at the track.

Next year - or perhaps Indy...last chance to see hoards of incredibly fast two strokes...not to mention the smell. :)

+1 on that. I've never liked Jorge, even though I will admit he is a tough little bastard riding with as many injuries as he's had. But that video IS good. Unfortunately for Colin, he doesn't look out of place as the security guard... :D

well, not quite Laguna Seca but almost!

Laguna Seca GP weekend a group of us (8 riders) decided to ride the interior roads from Pro Italia (Glendale, CA) up to Pismo Beach, CA that included a 4 hour detour to Bakersfield for a few of us (thanks, Glenn!). Here are a few pics that i was able to snap along the way, Da_Bull will be posting a video at some point.

breakfast at my house



the ride included a bunch of these



then onto some roads and vistas which looked like this







to reach our brunch destination in Frazier Park outside of Gorman





where we were honored and joined by none other than a Desmo



and ordered one of the biggest plates of machaca and eggs i've ever had



and after arriving in Taft (single traffic light?) we decided that one of the riders would go not much further on his rear tire. being the friends we are, two of us (thanks Mike!)

escorted him to Bakersfield (interesting town i might add) at relatively low speeds which absolutely sucked major donkey bawlz. we're talking a 4 hour detour in hundred degree temps, and on very straight back roads.





where we sat in this room with our beloved Roberto for an hour and a half in the sweltering heat.....where else where we going to wait, a strip club??



and finally made it to San Luis Obispo/Pismo Beach via the unbelievably beautiful 58 and into our delightful two-room suite at the Dolphin Bay. needless to say we were all happy to be back together again.







all in all, an incredibly great adventure with great friends. looking forward to the next one. :)

Great for hangovers ... horrible for heartburn. :rolleyes:

Nice pics, Obie. I wish I'd taken more. :(

On the bright side I ended up with 2 hours of jet-fighter-like vibrating video from the trip ... I edited it down to 45 min with music ... I will edit it further for posting on YouTube or something. That sh*t took me two days straight so please be patient.

I'm also working on the July 5th ACH climb video with Alex and Todd. :)

I love my new Oregon Scientific video camera...
