    I got to see it on network tv. Which is pretty amazing, I never get to see 'anything with a motor' on network tv. NASCAR is back after a 3 month 'disappearance' to cable. My point is: I don't pay to watch tv, if my rabbit ears don't get it, neither do I.

    I'm am utterly astounded that those guys can go THAT fast in the rain. Their reflexes cannot be understood by anything less than a microprocessor.

    They are pretty amazing, we couldn't see too much of the track due to the infeild (retarded) stands. Indy is not a good roadcourse fan track, access to the fences is also very limited ans it rained and hurricaned 2 of the 3 days, but it was a fun weekend. It was good to be amongst motorcyclists again!

    I was there. I have been to their races before @ Laguna Seca but every time I go it gets more unbelievable. What these guys do on a bike is unreal. Going into turn 1 (wet road) 120-130 mph, knee on the ground, and the bike sliding sideways????!!!!!! WOW!!! Maybe I'll post up some pics I have of the event for all to see.

    This was a great event!!! Even with the rain. In a way I think it was more interesting to see how fast they actually go in the rain. Front straight top speed in dry was 195 mph, and 175 mph in the wet. They did not slow down as much as I thought they would. I was glad to see that Nicky H did well too. Broken heel and all. He's a machine.

    Sheesh, they slowed down to 175 mph..... sissies.

    I know it takes time, any would be appreciated.

    Alright, alright!!! Well I can't claim these pics as my own but I figured I'd get some up from the event. Twas a great time. I was sitting in section E top row. Had great view of the front straight, corner 1,2,3,4 and the straight into 5.

    I will post up my pics soon though. I promise
