    Saw all of them at Laguna starting in 84.
    So glad when Americans ruled.

    Sure did.
    Loved the old track and bein able to ride anywhere without a helmet.
    Was there when the Sheriff had a heart attack during the bonfire and the dueling CBX’s.
    That’s when they brought the riot squad in and maced my buddy.
    Oh then we’re the days.

    Right?
    Shorts slaps and holding a beer— real threatening.
    We just went to camp and recharged with a bump.
    Miss those crazy trips
    12 in a row
    Haha

    I used to go to Laguna Seca every year for the MC races.
    A couple times or so went twice in 1 year when they had 2 race weekends.
    It started to feel repetitive and the crowds were big for MotoGP, traffic jam time.
    Plus it became a $1000+ weekend. And just for me sharing a room with someone paying half for it.
    Mrs Wife did not go more than a couple times. All prices raised to maximum gouge level it felt like.

    Maybe this is my year to go back. Only Moto America so it should not be as crowded and expensive. Hopefully.
    Those Golden years were great. :)
