I totally can't that weekend. My wife has already called dibs on that weekend. He's taking a vacation. I take plenty of bike trips so when she claims a weekend I gotta respect that. Ya know.

I will be there. Went in 07 and last year. Plan to go every year at this point. I pretty much hate the town of Indy but I love motogp and it is as close as it gets. If you are going this year good luck there is a convention (insert my hate for indy here) in Indy and all the hotels are sold out. So you can camp or you can camp if any of that is still available.

I got tons of pictures - took 799. Some are good most are garbage. But digital man I shoot a fuckload and then just weed them out later. It will take me awhile to weed through them - I am about 11,000 deep in various pictures from all over right now. I did a handful yesterday to pacify the people I went with so I will post those when I get a chance. That picture there was lap 1 of the race when Spies lead before his motor blew up. Had a great fucking time. Beer, more beer, tequila, midnight tacos, late night pizza, Indy Mile on Saturday, hanging out walking all around the track Friday and Saturday, Ducati Island with expresso and yoga pants and of course the race Sunday.

Lots of ppl, mostly the International and Kalifornia crowd, bitching about the track at Indy. What they don't realise is that compared to the rest of the tracks in the US, it may not be the best layout with the best pavement and the best sections, but it IS the best at the rest of the amenities the MotoGP world requires.... things like Lots of local Hotels, lots of press buildings and garage spaces, some of the best spectator areas on the whole circuit, etc etc. Not to mention only a couple of hours from us. I will be sad if/when it leaves.

Stay downtown if you can. Skip the flat track racing @ the indiana state fairground - it is a rip off and the grandstands suck. Do go downtown during the weekend to see the chaos of 8 bazillion bikes, hot chicks, celebrities, etc. Do not buy your tickets ahead of time - scalping is legal in Indiana. Do not pay for parking ahead of time - you can park real close on a person's lawn for $5. Do not pay for reserved grandstands - they are a rip off. General admission has the best view grandstands anyways. If you see me there - do buy me a Fosters it's australian for buy mudpuppy a fucking beer.
