Ok, here is only 5 of the 200+ pictures that I took today at the Pikes Peak International Raceway AMA Races. There's so decent stuff that I got but I'll take me a little while to resize and post in the Gallery so I figured I'd give a little taste.

ShanMan, how much space is available in the Gallery? Cause I don't think I wanna upload the entire folder of pics. I mean I would like to, just will take a while. However, I don't wanna hog all your space.

If I remember correctly, the average height off the ground ended up at like 50-75' with nothing but concrete and asphault to land on!

Just a couple more...

I have to resize then post 'em in the Gallery. I'll put a thread up in here when I finish them all.
The first one is a suede seat on GSXR. Kinda nice I think.

are those felt seats on that blue bike? I'm lovin' it!!!

Suede Pheonix, Suede....They were nice.

Too bad everyone wasn't there. Aprillia and Buell were allowing test-rides of all their bikes. Aprillia was even letting people ride the Factory R, line was too long otherwise I would have rode that one.

More. The first is Ohlins Suspension, but I believe that it has a supercharger on it (can someone clarify?)

The guy that is pictured with the Ducati and the flag won the race that was televised on SPEEDVISION. He's won the race at Pikes Peak Internation Raceway for the last 6x the AMA has gone there. I forgot his name though.

You know the funny thing, Mladin didn't even place I think in the top 5 in his class but he had the "pole" position.

Oh yeah, and Nikki Hayden, lowsided and slid off the track cause he got tripped up by a Kawi (luckily he took the Kawi out of the race with him). But the other Yamaha teammate (#2) didn't finish but in 3rd place. Two Kawis took 1st and 2nd. :sob: :sob:

Eric Bostrom won the Superbike race on the Duc and Mladin took fourth.
As for the Superstock race, what was Nicky Hayden doing there :skep: ? Disalvo crashed running Hayden off the track, but came back on to continue. Roger Lee Hayden won with Tommy Hayden 2nd (both on Kawis). Can't wait to see the race, got to wait until Tuesday :tt:

Nice pics, what kind of camera do you have?

It's a Kodak Easyshare z740. I got it at BestBuy for like $379.99. It plugs into the "Camera Dock & Print Station" too but that's like $120 and I already have a laptop and printer so didn't figure I needed that.

Gas Man,

It was great. Well, except for the simple fact that I didn't wear any sunscreen so I got a little "lobster-look" on my arms and head. Kinda hurts to wear a lid now, but I'm gonna tough it out cause I gotta get the 500mile service done tomorrow!
