Yeah man, my prom date customers were in a hurry! That was some funny stuff.

Another cool thing that happened was Dovi 04 gave his knee skids (signed!) and helmet visor to my friends kid after the race! That was really cool if you ask me.

The mob waiting for Rossi after one of the practices.
This only happens to Vale, all the other riders can move around the paddock easily.

I saw how he escaped earlier in the day, so I was waiting way off to the side and got this photo.

So, another cool thing that happened was we met Garrett Gerloff (Motul Superbike rider, factory Yamaha #31) in line for coffee at Starbucks on Friday morning way across town from cota. He was wearing a Yamaha jacket and I was like, hey are you going to the race today, and he was like "actually I'm in the Superbike class I'm #31 look for me". Very nice guy, clean cut, soft spoken, no attitude. We cheered our asses off for him.

The superbikes are 1000cc and are big and loud and fast, you could tell those guys were trying hard. I liked their practices and races way better than Moto3, except when Moto3 all crashed at turn 1 right in front of us, which was wild. Moto2 bikes are smaller (600cc) but seemed about as fast as the Superbikes. MotoGP guys were noticeable faster than everyone else. I really liked watching the Moto2 practices/race, they were getting after it.

We accidentally stumbled onto the toll-highways a couple times while we were in Austin. Google maps doesn't tell you where they are, you find out once you're on them. After the second time we googled them to fffind out which ones were toll so we could try to avoid them. There's no toll booth so you can't pay, they take a photo of your car and send you a bill. The car rental form has a $25 per time fee plus fees, all in small type at the bottom, and of course the guy never mentioned it when we were picking up the car. So we weren't surprised when the $53 bill came today...

Dovi set a new speed record in MotoGP today hitting 356.4km/h (211mph) during practice, but he also killed one of his bikes today, so, yeah. #Fire!
