I don't know what that was all about though.

can't believe how close they let you get,
have you got a very special pitt pass??

Oh, sorry. That pic isn't mine.. I saw that over on superbike planet earlier. I wasn't allowed in there for sure!! Though there is a pit walk tomorrow.

I was just repeating the caption they had. I've no idea if that's the real function. I'd sure like to know for sure though!

The 1k Honda's sounded ok. Probably the best of the screamers. They didn't stand out to me as much as the R1 and RSV4 though.

yeah, I failed today..

Not just there, but umm.. I was also mezmerized by Syke's chin. Much like how backing it in, and the steepness of the corkscrew get diminished on TV, so does Tom's chin. There were 3 hawt blondes around him.. I recognized one as his GF, the other must have been 6' tall. They managed to distract me a bit, but still.. the chin... it demands attention. So much so that I didn't take a pic.

Yeah, Pitt had a huge off and was in the med center for quite a while. They said he's ok, but because of when he crashed, he didn't qualify. Oops.

thanks for the update,
that's a shame, Pitt is a quality rider.

You MUST watch the supersport race, they normally take close racing to a new level
have you seen lascorz drifting the kawa yet??

Heck yes.. I LOVE the supersport class. I can't believe how many people here got up and walked away during the SS session.


There have been a few guys getting a little drifty... but i'm a bit disappointed. It could just be the viewing from my area. The turn doesn't seem to lend itself to backing-it-in much. And it's difficult to see the other parts of the track. This place is HYOOOGE!

There was one guy on the cool down lap after the session ended that did do a super exaggerated backing-it-in move, but to both sides.. It was a hoot.


I kept looking for Melissa. No mention of her whatsoever. I *thought* I saw her a couple of times. I kept trying to get a pic, but the bike was a Honda.. so couldn't be her.
