Default MotoGP Austin

Well, I was really planning on putting together a nice report with captions and everything, but in the end the task was too big and I am too lazy. It turns out that I took about 2,500 pictures and the process of picking important ones and explaining what is going on and everything was just too much for me to do, so instead I just went through real fast and tried to pick a good sampling of pictures.

It was a very, very awesome event and ranks as one of the most exciting trips I have ever made, and I consider myself terribly lucky to have been able to experience this!

Great pics Tank. Enjoyed them very much. You were either very close, or had a heck of a lens or both. Wish you'd have used some fill in flash on the pic with Colin Edwards.

Yes, it is a bummer how the picture with Colin came out, but the wife took the picture and got way too much of the sky in it. I have copies where I lightened it up and it looks much better.

We had spectacular seats. Basically we could sit anywhere above the Moto2 garages up to the start line. The only MotoGP garage that was in our section was the KTM so that is where we watched most of the time. They did a practice bike swap and we were literally about 8 feet above them. We also had pit passes for the whole weekend and they provided food and drink all day for us in the air conditioned lounges directly behind our seats. Pretty fancy stuff. Got to see a lot of things up close we have never seen before, got to talk to and see lots of riders. It was really really epic. It was funny reading the news after. When they talked about the KTM coming in with the bad clutch I actually breathed the smoke that came out of that clutch 8 feet away! When we talked to Karel Abraham he was limping and had the bandage on his ankle from the crash I read about. It was almost as good as being a factory rider!

Had to be exciting. I'd be surprised if your hearing is intact.
