Thumbs up USGP at Laguna Seca - Pictures!

I went to the USGP at Laguna Seca last weekend, and as you would expect the racing was awesome! It still amazes me just how fast they are, both the bikes and the guys who ride them. The weather, on the other hand, left a bit to be desired, with 100+ degree air temps and 145 degree track temps! I think I now know how brisket feels in the smoker, because it was friggin' HOT!!
I took a bunch of pictures (go figure) and posted some to my website. Feel free to take a look!

The shortest distance between two points is for people who don't ride!

Thumbs up You DA MAN!

Due to the family's vacation schedule, I'll most likely never be able to attend. I thank you for posting the pics...as I can live vicariously through you and others. I really appreciate it.


(Don't mind the drool on your website. I'll mop up on the way out.)

Thumbs up

Awesome pics David! Thanks for sharing. Would you mind if I used one for my wallpaper?

I watched the race on TV, but I am sure it was NOTHING like being there in person - at least I wasn't baking in 100+...

Sure, send $99.99 to ... (just kidding ). I shoot with a Canon EOS 20D (8 megapixel) and have high res versions of all of these. So if you want the hi res one just PM me which one you want and your email address and I'll send you the big one. And thanks for asking!
