The first year they brought an RSV-4 to Laguna Seca, it was set up in the pits, we were drooling over it, then some random Aprilia dude got on, started it up, and was motoring away; this would be in the market place, on the road that parallels the straight between T2 & T3.

And there goes my friend, on the phone to her husband who couldn't make it that year- "HONEY- LISTEN! and is trying to run behind the bike while holding the phone next to the exhaust..."

Hm. I think that was the year I got kicked out of someone's booth for feeling up the mannequins. Stupid vendors take themselves way too seriously sometimes. I mean, experience has taught me to expect to get asked to leave Macy's for that, but a vendor booth at a racetrack? Sheesh.
