Autobahn - June 11

Hello,

I am new to this forum and strangely enough, do not own a bike yet.

I'm going to the Autobahn event on Saturday, June 11 to check things out. I'm an amateur photographer and thought that since I'll be there with my camera, I'd see who's going and meet some of you/take some shots of you.

I hope to get hooked and join you guys next season,
Adam

Welcome to the forum.

As far as taking pics at a Nesba event goes, Jack Beaudry at Sliderphoto.com does have exclusive rights to the profesional picture taking.

Id suggest coming out to watch and introducing yourself to Jack prior to snapping any shots.

FYI

Also, I tried talking my way past the gate guards to take a look around once (not sure what event was going on - non motorcycle) and was turned away.

They said that they were not set up for spectators and they were a private club, so no entry allowed.

You can still get inside the Autobahn gates as a spectator. I went there to watch a SportBikeTrackTime.com trackday, and was only charged $5. You then pretty much have free roam of the place.

Good luck.

Thanks guys

My post may have been worded strangely...I have no intentions of selling my images. I will take them as a spectator and post any that turn out here on the site...as a friend. I hope not to step on Jack's toes. Plus I'm not that good!
