Default My MotoGP Indy 2012 Trip

I just have to say, other than the last couple hours of the trip home, this trip was pure awesome. My wife surprised me with VIP motorcycle in-field parking, tower terrace seats right next to the podium, and a parade lap pass for our 5 year anniversary. She is just awesome. I got to take my bike for a lap on the actual track and even left a little bit of my bike behind... lol.
Here is the video for now while I go through all 800+ pictures and pick out a few to post... don't mind the slightly homosexual squeeling in the video. I was giddier than a school girl the whole time. lol.


And the "aftermath" on the bike... love every bit of it.

And the autographs I was able to get. I also got a picture with Cal Crutchlow along with an autographed poster, but Spies was the big one because of his unknown future with MotoGP.

Autograph on my absolute favorite picture from last year along with my tower terrace ticket which just happened to be Seat 11. He actually sat talking with my wife and I for a few minutes regarding the picture because he was so impressed with the picture... actually made me feel pretty awesome since normally the autograph sessions are "here's your autograph now leave".. lol.:


Another autographed picture from last year.

Too bad they didn't take you on the banked turns! You probably would have fallen over actually at those parade lap speeds.

The MotoGP course does utilize 1 of the banked turns and we entered the track at turn 4 which was fairly well banked. It was quite odd trying to keep the bike up and was a little nerve racking because there was no way I would be able to put my left leg down (inside) without the bike going over. I had to keep it leaned to the right to make sure I kept it upright.
