    Ride your bike on the COTA Track

    As a promotion for the upcoming MotoGP at the Circuit of the Americas April 11-13, there is an upgrade to your pass for a limited number of people to ride their bike on the track. Check the "scenery" out!

    Still amazed COTA is in Austin and close by. Will give it a go next year for the MotoGP

    The ride the track thing looks a bit crowded from last years pic...an experience, but not a parade lap fan with folks I do not ride with regularly.

    By scenery ...I assume you mean those rather delicious young ladies WoW!

    I have made every GP @ Indy till last year. My best friend / riding buddy died, and I just wasn't in the mood. [We] spoke of doing Austin, but well... I might try a trip down, [perhaps this year ?] I've heard good things about it.

    I'd stay right for turn one and take it easy.

    Rode Indy last year and it was a zoo.

    You seen turn one at COTA? Some folks will freak out with the climbing uphill tight lefty where you cannot see the exit until you point downhill. Ought to be interesting to say the least

    Love blind apex's, it is strange pitching a bike into a turn, with out being able to see where you are headed, but you just have to trust that no one moved the pavement since the last lap.
