    been watching the 2012 season of Moto2 and 3 on the DVR to pass the time - starting making plans for Austin tickets and realized that race only going to have the GP class :cry

    can't bring myself to attend Indy, hate that track, Laguna too far away. Austin it is....anyone else in the US making plans?

    At Chuckwallah no less. Not quite a good test track for a 'GP' bike, but still a good one. He probably won't get out of fourth gear on that track.

    PS....

    That video is completely awesome. I'm sending it to everyone I know with a 'smart'phone.

    MotoGP.com season pass is now available. About $135. Do they discount the cost later in the season or does it stay consistent the whole time? I need to figure out how I want to stream this to my TV but if the price usually drops as the season goes on I may wait and get that sorted first.

    At mid season they cut the price by about half, or I think they have the past few years.

    That didn't sound like a conventional Kawasaki engine, any idea what they are running this year?

    ZX-10R engine with heavy modifications including a "crossplane-type" crank built by Attack Performance to change the firing order.

    That sounded like a crossplane I4 with no silencer.
