    Me three!


    I've been to every MotoGP and F1 race at Indy. It's a pilgrimage for us. This is our usual crew in our usual spot, right next to the water tower.

    I finally found one at Beemer Boneyard. Should get it in two days.

    I find it ironic that I raced this weekend without a hickup and then break down coming into work on Monday morning!
