Yeah, USA rules the moto GP! Wish I had the $ and time to have seen it in person. Haven't seen any video yet, but the club had some brothers on the scene, 50 feet from the finish line and I guarantee that the loudest sound there was our pal tail-light Larry screaming screams of joy.

If I'm not mistaken...this is Nicky's first MotoGP victory, right?

I thought when he left AMA Superbike to race MotoGP, there would be a learning curve, but he (until yesterday) hasn't had the success I thought he would...

Favorite NH moment was a few years ago when he took a side trip off the Superbike Circuit and raced the Springfield TT and walked away from EVERYBODY! All Chris Carr & Jay Springsteen, etc., could do was watch this red blur get dimmer ahead of them....Don't get me wrong, I like Carr & Springsteen, et al, as good as anyone...I just believe NH could have been out there on a Puch Moped and wipe the rest of the field up that day

Don't forget Nicky and his brothers have been racing flattrack and tt's for a long time. I pretty sure thats were they got their start in motorcycle racing. Wish i could have seen the race. Gregg

One of the reasons I didn't go was the "NO CA$H" problem. (and I had to go see my brother drag race at the Rat Fink partay -- fun)....but as it turns out, my pals Scot and Mike said you could camp AT THE TRACK for F R E E!! Sure, Laguna Seca said you had to reserve a spot, but, hell....it's all brothers & sisters there, so the real estate was no problem!!! No shortage of space at all. If the race is there next year, just shell-out for the ticket and bring the bag & tent. Anyway, that's my plan. ...just passin' on the info...
