I have been more inclined to watch SB and SS racing rather than the 250 and 500 GP stuff. However, I'm curious to see all the new four stroke machinery. Also, it seems that the motorcycle companies' interest seems to be increasingly shifting to MotoGP, so I think I may now take more of an interest in it.

The power they are getting out of these new four stroke machines is just insane. I can't wait to see it on the track.

i'm from spain where GP is like hockey here...the world's best riders all ride GP...i've tried to watch SB and SS but i find it's dull in comparison...too much of a difference between bikes so there's little competition...just my opinion;)

Hehe, I feel the same way. It's like that for F1 as well...I can't watch CART, but i think F1 is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

There are a lot of exceptions though. Isle of Mann TT is damn cool to watch...and for cars, GT cars are also pretty fun to watch.

hmm...I don't know of any in particular, but I know of a few places on commercial Dr. that will probably have it (Italian cafe's? come on, it's a given right?! :D )

Let's see what kind of response we get. If a lot of people on the board want to join up and watch the race together, then we'll need to pick an appropriately sized venue.

Hey guys in my apartment building downtown we have a mini theatre type room that has a huge screen and wicked surround sound. I also think it has cable in it so if it does I could book it for the race and it seats up to about 15-20 people. Let me know if anyone is interested.
