    I rode my Concours 14 down to Virginia International Raceway for the MotoAmerica races this past weekend. Just sharing a few pictures I took while I was there.

    It is absolutely insane what they can do to a set of tires in a single 20 lap race. Each lap is 2.25 miles.

    Here are a couple of my C14 once the bike parking cleared out enough that I could get some pictures of it.

    Wow... this site has really slowed down. Not nearly as much activity here as there was even a year ago.

    Any race fans on here anymore? I realize I’m posting sport bike pictures on a cruiser forum, but there used to be more interest in all things motorcycle related. Where are all the race fans at?

    Always amazed to watch them. They seem to defy physics leaning that far into the turns!!

    This was the first motorcycle races I have seen live. The TV doesn’t do it justice. You don’t get the same perspective on TV. Being there in person and seeing the curves they are taking and the speeds they are taking them at is amazing! You also can’t judge the changes in elevation as well on TV.

    the other thing I found amazing was how they lift the front wheel coming out of the curve while the bike is still leaned over.

    Thanks! I couldn't believe they could shred them like that in approximately 50 miles, give or take.

    My friend and I have been going to the Superbike races at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI every year since 92. Again in two weeks. Would not miss it for the world. Never has been dull, this year I am sure will be the same.

    200+ mph facing a 60mph curve elbowing and bumping for position; not on my best day!
    Always loved motorcycle road racing.
    Thanks, for posting the pictures
    One of my favorite videos is a slow motion clip of the jump at Cadwell park.

    One of these days. Maybe get a group of us together and do a track day? Who is interested?
