Indy Moto-GP meet & greet..

With the Indy Moto GP coming around,we need to start the tire a rollin' and work on a Meet & Greet!
Here is last years meet and greet,theres several members from the site who couldn't be bothered by meeting for the picture.so the group was a bit larger than us here.

Garage
Im in for a meet up. As long as some of the locals can help a stranger without a GPS find his way around. After two visits the city is much more familiar but I still got alot to learn.

You can count me in... How does the parade lap work? Do you need to wear full leathers? I'm bringing my bike in my truck so I can cruise around town with the wife and fit in a little better... My first GP race so I'm really stoked to see everything. Keep us informed where the meet will be.

The parade lap works as such;
if you buy into a pkg deal that offers a parade lap wrist band,or sticker displayed to show parade lap priviledges.varies from year to year.
you show the gate attendent or ticket taker your band and they direct you to the lap staging area.
After you sign the release and your bike checks out for loose parts or leaking stuff they stage you in groups 10-15 riders.
helemet,shoes is the only requirement.
your group stages up,the group leader a IMS rider starts off then they allow the pack to take off,no one rides faster than the lead IMS rider and the last rider is another IMS rider,to make sure no one lags behind and gives those sudden bursts of throttle and wheelies it also.
Theres plenty of gaps to give the burst if you get seperation from the lead riders.
usually the the first 3-4 riders are the GP wannabe riders who race to the finish trying to be the first across the line.but its a short lived race because you dont pass the lead IMS rider.

Thanks for the info glockt. I look forward to the parade lap although I'm not a racer, I just want to feel the track and get some good lean on the corners... Keep us informed as to where the meet and greet will be.

For all you who have been to the GP in past years, is the Southwest Vista a good location to sit and is it really packed to where you can't move around to different locations in the grandstands? I'll be there all three days and assume Friday isn't too busy but want to make sure I have good seats. I think I'm in row KK in the southwest vista??? Looking at the website I'm a ways from the track. Any comments would be appreciated.
