Motegi MotoGP 08

This weekend brought MotoGP to town and a couple of friends from back home made the journey to Japan to join us for the race. It was a great 5 days with a little sightseeing around Tochigi, the track Friday Saturday, and Sunday, and of course plenty of beer drinking and BS'ing through it all. As far as the race goes we were happy that we were able to witness Rossi clenching the championship as he pretty much dominated from the get go. We would have like to have seen our man Nicky Hayden hit the podium but 5th was the best he could muster. Not a bad result considering the rest of his season and all of the drama surrounding his "team" and HRC.
We really had a great time visiting with Matt and Scott(yes, those would be original KFC buckets), and I believe it made us realize for a few days just how far away home really is.
Hopefully we were able to make their Japan experience a good one, as for most people the cultural difference can seem a bit strange at times.
