Nice man, Congrats. I'm not a person that wants to meet celebrities to be honest, and I never have been that way. But meeting Vale would be awesome I think. I'm hoping to make it to at least one race before he retires.

Very cool! For some reason this year's event topped all the others I have been to. I am not sure if it is the industry (motorcycling in general) or Dorna/FIM trying harder or what, but it just seemed like everything was a bit "more better" than days past. Thanks for sharing the link.

You lucky dog! That was awesome! Good write-up.

Btw how was that your first post with Oct 2008 join date? :laughing:
I owned three R1s. a 2003 that I kept for only one year, an 07 that I hated power delivery so much that I came to the forum to see if there was something I'm missing. And a 2013, after 2 months of ownership a stupid driver took me out on the freeway.
I've been always lurking around though. Especially I'm jealous of the lucky 2015 owners! I saw the 2015 BMW S1000RR and jumped the gun immediately... Now I wish I waited for the R1. Oh well... I do have a feeling Yamaha would come out with a Rossi replica for sure. That's the one I would get :)

The new MotoGP rules definitely help. Having Ducati and Suzuki in the front helps putting out a better show. Economy is getting better as well, so more support for races.

Great article I was there but didn't get the chance to meet the legend. Cool that you got to meet Colin. I saw spies in the vip but he was focused on the moto3 race so I didn't bother him. Would be great to see another Texan gp rider but at this point I think we have had more than our share with a champion in the books.
