If you could go to almost any motogp

Race. where would it be?

I can go any almost anywhere i want for my 30th b-day. The girlfriend is paying for it. So naturally I thought about a moto GP race. Now where do I go? I feel like a kid in a candy store and I can only pick one

I'm not short. I'm aerodynamically efficient.

I said almost anywhere. Actually that was the first one that I thought of. I asked her that and she said no. Too expensive.

Go to Brno in CZ. Stay a few days in Prague, then off to the race and then a few more days in Prague. It's in late August, perfect time of year to be in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I may go this year, if money goes well.

Oh yeah, Czech Republic is cheap, airfare is not. That is unless you fly into London, something like $400 round trip. Take the Metro through France or hell visit Amsterdam if thats what your into.

Even though it's not what you asked for, I second the 'hopper with the Isle of Mann. Get some lawn chairs set up by the jump and spend a few days with your jaw on the ground!

I have been there on a bike!!!


Italy is awesome!!! the roads are fantastic and pictures don't do it justice. the people are awesome- just stay off the super highways- big tunnels- in august they are full of exhaust fumes and they are 5, 10, or up to 30k long it sucks!! use the secondary roads it is way more fun. watch out for the guys on scooters they are nuts. the food and wine are awesome it is worth the trip!!
if you want to see pics i will email you some.
