    Was thinking of heading out to check out the races, but haven't decided for sure yet.
    Anyone else going?

    I'm seriously considering it. I need to be in Vegas Friday and back home in Park City Sunday afternoon. I might make a big 'ol loop - Salt Lake to Vegas to Reno to Salt Lake.

    supermoto in the streets of downtown reno - and for FREE - how can you beat that! So far at least one of my riding buddies is going on his silver 950 and I may join him on my black GSPD.

    Hi L2L, I just saw same stuff when I searched the net! I coulda sworn that a local riding buddy (who shall go nameless) had said today, but the more I thought about it, the less sense it made. Sorry--should have searched b4 I posted! :nod

    In case you missed it, the Reno supermoto was a very entertaining event. There was a relatively small crowd of spectators and up close easy viewing from any section of the track. Really impressive to watch the top riders hitting triple digits on the streets of Reno and barking the tires into the turns over asphalt and manhole covers. The big jumps and banging the hay bails in the sharp turns was also worth the FREE admission. I regret I didnt take any pictures - coulda got some good ones there. It is suppose to be on OLN soon.

    Thanks for the link to the good photos knuck. Did you snap any of the big air ramps leading into the dirt section? From the inside of the track i thought you could get an illusion of bikes falling from the tall buildings next to the ramp.

    I couldn't get close enough. I took some from across the river but they didn't come out very well. I got this low quality head-on shot, though.[​IMG]

    I watched the races from a friends apartment just up the track from that jump. Where they had the dirt section turnaround. It was excellent.
