    And by place he means "garage". ;) And by free labor he means "free added entertainment value". And by party he means "flat Odouls". And by the photo he means "winner of inaugural MotoGP in Texas".

    True ADV-GP racing would involve stopping and eat BBQ too. Well, at least the US version would. Don't know what they would eat in the Euro ADV-GP race.

    You found your perfect DS bike! Well, may be a smidge over the weight budget.

    Oh. Come. On. That ain't chrome. That's highly polished aluminuminum....metal. Even I wouldn't cover that up. Immediately.

    I had the pleasure of attending the MotoGP it was very cool. Perfect temps. made for a great day and race. The track is beautiful. Seeing these riders blast by at over 200 MPH and barely slowing down for corners was incredible. The lean angles are un-believable. So proud to have Texas host it.
    Wish I had the Cowboy hat concession, saw alot of foreigners in new Hats...
    Over-all a great time.

    Can I get a summation? Avg speed---best lap time---when did they go to 800cc limit--- what is involved in "traction control". Or , a referance to an article on the internet. Thanks
