Didn't get to make it Friday but was there Saturday and Sunday and had a great time. Next time I'll be sure to bring sunblock no matter what the weather forecast says.

same here, I'm pretty well charred after Sunday afternoon. So much for 80-100% chance of rain.

I found out about it late last week and couldn't make it Saturday. I then woke up Sunday sick which made me glad that I didn't go as it would of sucked to be sick and to try to ride back...

Me and the boy went. Brought our ponchos and only needed it for the supersport race. Also got great use of our umbrella hats! Used for rain and sunblock! Boom! Click image for larger version

Rode up Thu, hit Ducati Austin party. Got Iannone and Dovizioso to sign a shirt. They also gave out signed posters. Then we went down to congress for home slice pizza and a beer.

Fri morning we rode out 71 and sky opened up. We ducked into a gas station awning till rain stopped then rode Hamilton Pool rd and 1431. Then track for vendors and watch practice. Fri night met Bautista at AF1 party.

Sat was track all day. Built Bike show at night. Ran into Solracer. Then Congress st, then Broken Spoke from 10pm - 1am.

Sun races. Cheap Trick concert, 6th and 5th street that night.

Rode home early this morning. Great weekend!!!!!!

I was going regardless and glad I did. Stayed between turn 10 and 11. I just hated that all of the screens were not on around the track. I heard a lot of complaints about that. The moto3 guys were dropping like flys at the hairpin.

Went, enjoyed the races all weekend, wished I had rode the bike up there, partied on 6th, met Keanu Reeves in the hotel lounge... Fun times were had. Glad I didn't let the rain scare me.

We are going to need way more volunteers for next year

The saving grace was the dog and the weather that took the blame for the delays

Friday was misrable, rained till about 2pm, Control was sending out trash bags for people to wear because they didn't have the clear ponchos.

depends what corner you are on and how fast on your feet you are and how many delays happen (how long the breaks are).

After a morning of delays, the breaks are shorter, so less time this year.

So anywhere close to T11 and you don't have time...
