moto gp 2010

I often read and thoroughly enjoy the ride reports on this forum, so here is my attempt at reporting my recent trip to Laguna Seca and the Moto GP race.

met my friend at 7-11 and headed North



stopped in Santa Barbara for little break





gas stop at the scenic Rugged point and the road ahead





to be continued

That pic looks like it's a short robot waving its arms around in anger. Read an article recently on another forum about it. Sure is out there, and despite everything, I'd like to have a ride on her.

Here's another pic of it, in action.

Loved your mini right-up and pics mantelhonda, so looking forward to the Philip Island GP next month.

I was at Laguna. The pic you took of all the bikes parked on the hillside, mine was at the end of the orange fence near the helmet and leathers check in. I'm hoping to go next year. Wish they would bring moto 2 there.

I thought this was some kind of a "Frankenstein" monster of a bike someone created to look at, I didn't think it could be ridden. Kudos to that rider and to you for even thinking of riding this bike.
I hope you'll give us a RR on the P.I GP. this is one of the races I would love to go watch. I'm thinking of going to the first race of the season in Dubai next year, but plans can be changed

There were a couple of other WT members at the race, I know J919 flew in just in time for the start and fehren was there on his way back from Alaska. maybe next year we can have a WT meet up at the race.
