A loverly starting image...really it is...the over the shoulder shot with the lads but a blur trailing the early morn before us...

after some late calls Saturday eve, the la casa was decided upon for an early morn meet...however before dashing to the road the lads and I watched a live vid feed on the computer from the brilliant motogp.com WEBsite which dutifully fed us racing extravaganza with nary an advert break in the midst, save for billboards which were a blur in the background...

after watching Rossi come from 10th to second, then bam, like lightening we were off...later in the ride, Steve made mention that he thought we had an unusually spirited launch, no doubt from watching the aforementioned race without all the breaks from inane Americano commercials for an audience who suffers so when watching the aforementioned on the idiot box (read as the boob tube...note to self, insert diatribe at a later date about how the WEB is not just transforming media as we know it, but it is also transforming the audience's viewing expectations)...fittingly I decided to get a starting shot as we headed north into South Carolina ~ a shot replete with 'nearly' a shameless advert for Vanson Leathers...perhaps they'll be good enough to give me a break on the race suit I will order shortly...or...maybe not...

and maybe is the ride word of the day as we saunter off towards Bennett's Point on Bear Isle in South Carolina...
