Here are some of my pictures from the 2011 Indianapolis MotoGP. RareSportBikesForSale.com was on hand of course as this is an event we try to always make! The gallery is late as usual but at least within 30 days!
These were taken on Friday during a practice session. Doug, Bruce, and I all found ourselves in the same spot on this day as you can get pretty close to the riders with no fence in the way to spoil the shots. Race day, this spot is 20-30 people deep and nearly impossible to get unless you camp out all day in the spot. We usually show up just before the race nowadays since we’ve been there two straight days already and two boozy bike filled nights downtown as well for the bikes on the circle event.
On to the pics! That’s Rossi above, and here is Hayden. His sister had just got married and he wore this helmet to celebrate!
And here’s last year’s champion, Jorge Lorenzo:
Here are the others without post-processing but made available at 1920×1280:
And if you want to see more streetable rides, check out all the bikes I spotted in the parking lots and downtown in this Facebook album for RSBFS.
Thanks again to Doug for being a great host in Indy!

This post has generated the most comments ever on a single post on my website. The seller is quote eccentric in his presentation and demands of the potential bidders. It’s a very rare opportunity to own a new 1992 KR1-S for sure!

Mike hits the Las Vegas Mid-America auction and files his report. He is definitely inspiring me to make this a company trip next year! Great post Mike, thanks so much for the first hand account!

Steve McQueen’s 1970 Porsche 911S is being offered soon at auction and the classic car blog world is abuzz. We didn’t miss it either! We’ll be keeping an eye on the result of this sale for sure.
My buddy Alex who is a contributing author on Rare Sport Bikes For Sale is about to pick a Honda RS125 for track days. What a great early Christmas present to yourself! He sent over this picture of the bike to show off his latest acquisition. I started staring at in Photoshop and ended up with these two versions of the image. The first one is more photo-realistic and the other has a filter applied for a more stylized look. I’m leaning towards the latter. Probably end up wallpapering one of my garage walls with a huge print out.
Congrats on the new bike Alex! Can’t wait to see it in action!
