Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi kicked off the inaugural Grand Prix of the Americas weekend today with the first practice sessions at the Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas. The morning’s first session delivered far slower times than had been recorded at the private test a few weeks ago with cold temperatures and little rubber on the track adding several seconds to the previous times. The afternoon saw the temperature double from the morning and lap times tumbled for all riders.

Reigning World Champion Lorenzo completed the first of the two sessions in second place and the second in fourth, improving by over two seconds. Teammate Rossi improved a place from sixth to fifth over the two sessions and also took a large chunk out of his morning time, shaving an impressive four seconds off by the end of the second practice.  Continue reading “The Action Begins in Austin for Grand Prix of The Americas for Yamaha Racing Team”

1980-1990 is the era when most of the beautiful bikes are made, in my opinion. Take this Honda RC30 for example. It doesn’t looks old and the HRC livery still looks as ever before. The double round headlight makes it look odd but nevertheless still beautiful. It carries the popular single-sided elf-Honda ProArm swing arm for that aggressive and racy stance.  Continue reading “1990 Honda VFR750R V4 RC30 HRC”
