It was pretty cool to watch the pros ride!

Next Week, Laguna Seca! I wonder if Messy13 made it out there this year.

The race was amazing--I wondered where were the BMWs, on their home turf?

Re: MOTO GP-how do they do it???

Totally unbelievable. In that slop and as said on Brigestones. Those guys just have no fear, even when they dumped, they ran for their bikes to see if they could go on. Imagine a dump at 130+ and running for your bike to get back on.

Very amazing to watch and in that rain when they made even the tiniest adjustment/mistake it was very noticeable.

BMW doesn't have a MotoGP bike, so they wouldn't have been there. They will be running in Workd Superbike next yeat with a new 1000cc inline 4.
