Err...The problem is that there's just so many pictures, and I haven't had the time to sort through them all...I've just picked a few highlight photos and cropped them and scaled them down a little to be easier on the forum. I'm on vacation in California until next Sunday, so I'm really just trying to relax now that MotoGP is over...but the next three days I'll be in Sacramento with fairly little to do, so as long as my hotel has internet access (it should...but I'm not certain...) I should be able to work out all the photos in the next three days or so.

Oh! Another awesome thing...the MotoCzysz C1 was there in all it's glory, along with Michael Czysz himself. That guy is fucking awesome. I was standing there watching him talk to some Michelin big wigs just drooling at the C1 motogp machines on display, and this guy next to me gets Czysz's attention and says jokingly, "So can you start it up for us?" Michael Czysz looks at him for a second, then goes, "Sure, I guess." So they get out this contraption that you roll the bike backwards onto that cradles the rear wheel and spins it up so you can slip the clutch and 'bump start' the bike while it's standing still...Michael hops onto the saddle, cranks her up, and revs the SHIT out of it. It's the most gorgeous looking and sounding motorcycle I've ever experienced in my entire life. It even put the Duc Desmosedici RR they had in the paddock to shame. I got Czysz to sign a poster of the C1, and he wrote a note about the goals of his team being MotoGP competition and stuff. I have pics of the C1, but none of Czysz or him on the C1. Unfortunately. But I have that poster! =) I'll post up pics a little later...

And as for the pics...KawiForums automatically scales them down to a certain size...I tried posting a 3000x2000 image yesterday, and it came through to the forums at 1900x????...so I'll probably have to either whip up a website for them, or just toss them into a directory at random on my server and let you guys have at it. I'll keep you updated.

lmao...dan's on the KawiForums...hahaha...skizzers doesn't have all that much space...I mean, I have over a gig of pics, so I have to at least change the jpeg compression before I upload them...and the server for the website I run for the wedding photography thing only has like 500 megs free, I think...so it's gonna take some time. Be happy with your helmet bag thing. I actually ended up with three of them when I went to get you one.



Oh...and I touched one of Rossi's M1's. Fucker. [8D]

That picture doesnt include all the bikes either. Thats just the regular bike parking. There was more parking closer to the track. I had 2 different parking passes, one for the ROK package I bought, and one for the parade lap I did. Hundreds of more bikes in those lots as well.

I put up about 80 or so pics at roughly 1000x800 resolution, depending on how I cropped them.

They're here: http://www.skizzers.org/lux/pictures/motogp

So head on over there and browse around. Most of them are broken into the day and subject, like fri_hayden or sat_paddock_desmosedici ... stuff like that.

Most of them are sized down to 1/3 to 1/2 their actual size, so I can get you guys full-res pics if you want them. Just PM me with the file name of the pics you want, and I'll upload them and PM you back with the URL of the full-res pic. Just don't go apeshit, because the full-res are like 2-3 megabytes each, and I don't want to kill my server's space limits. A buddy of mine gives me space for free on that server, so I try to be courteous...ish. Enjoy. =)

Great pics!

Is it just me or does Rossi look all crossed up?

Here's a shot of Tommy Hayden for comparison:

Edit: I've seen pictures of Rossi a thousand times, but he just doesn't look normal or relaxed in those shots. Of course maybe choosing Tommy Hayden to compare him to wasn't a good idea since Rossi towers Hayden.

It looks that way, but I think it's just the turn. Turn 2 (the pic of Tommy Hayden) is a pretty tight 180 turn and you really hang off, and the pics of Rossi (I think all of them...I have some of Rossi on turn 3 as well, but I don't think you referenced any of them, plus turn 3 is just a little sharper than turn 4) are on turn 4, which is a much wider 90 degree corner where they usually don't hang off quite as much.

Is Tommy Hayden really that short? I met Roger in the paddocks, and he was pretty short, but he didn't seem all THAT short...maybe it was just the fact that I was meeting Roger Hayden that made him seem taller. lol
