How many races were there and who won the main event?
www.circuitoftheamericas.com has the info you want.
What is the difference in Moto2 and Moto3?
Moto2 is 250cc. Moto3 is 600cc, MotoGP is now 1000cc. And they all haul some serious ass. Highest Speed was over 210MPH and on some turns they blast through at over 150MPH.
Winner of the MotoGP was the youngest rider ever to win, his last name is Marquez and he is from Spain. A new MOTOGP Superstar is born. Made Valentino Rossi look like he was in the old man's class.
The track is a beauty and would highly recommend attending next year's race.
I did not know they ran smaller than 600:eek1 250cc??? Wonder what top speed on those pocket rockets are?
They were hitting 140 on the long straight. MPH that is. The Moto3 250s were louder than the Moto2 600s.
You would not believe how fast they could ride those 250cc bikes. Sounded like a thousand pissed off bee's when they went by. But fun to watch.
Rode my friend's new water boxer today from Lakeside Village to Morgan on that sweet set of 40's. Very nice indeed. Didn't romp it much as it had less than 600 miles (and he could see me ) but it spun up easy. Transmission and clutch much improved. Brakes are outstanding. Ergos are great and that adjustable shield did better than the old GS shield. Turn in was impressive, held a line well and the ESA was set to "road". Set on "sport" or "idiot"? Well, we old school guys are gonna have to work to keep up on the street. Markedly improved. Can't wait for the big boy's bike.
I don't know. I've only ever heard great things about the new GS and I'm not sure I need the adventure model. I know for a fact I don't need the extra price tag as the standard GS is plenty expensive. I know of the '04 GS and '04 GSA I own, the regular GS handled better to me, but both handle so well. I guess I'd would think really hard before getting the adventure model again. I need to demo the bike some day.
Rode the Tiger 800. Wow, compared to my bikes, that thing was quick. Maybe the poor wind protection made it seem faster to me. I felt like I was holding on to keep from getting blown off.
David. I was ready to be underwhelmed at the improvements on the GS. The 25% increase in power from an 07 is certainly nice but, like I said, I wasn't riding it like I would have had it been my new bike ...or Dody's. lol
The points that are sticking with me are totally different clutch and shifter feel and those brakes. Radial mounted and very, very capable. It is gonna be very easy to ride very fast.
That's just what you need. A bike that could be riden very fast, faster than you ride now ! ! ! :eek1 :huh I just need to take out a very large insurance policy out on you now if you get a faster bike !
Reckon we can get a discount if we both take one out of him

Great pictures!! Wish I was there..
Wow - that's where I want to be!
I finally stitched together the panorama pictures I took of Lake Como on my last truck trip to Colorado in 2010. I think it turned out pretty well.
Awesome! But did you get to the lake from the Poughkeepsie Gulch side or the Silverton side?
poughkeepsie - we've done the hardest stuff that place has to offer, but we did it all on 4 wheels, which isn't as hard.
Poughkeepsie is a bit rough but easy compared to Schofield Pass
I am offering my KLR up for sale if anyone interested
