Tomorrow (Sunday) is the last race of the 2009 MotoGP season. My man, Jorge Lorenzo, is just one point away from finishing in 2nd place overall in the standings. I'm dedicating my photo today to raise awareness of MotoGP, quite possibly the most entertaining sport I've ever seen.

#99. Por Fuera Para Siempre!

As a Harley rider I am duty bound to watch only drag racing. However, I have found the MotoGP site (CLAME) and will read up, but only because you're a person I've never met who's documenting his beard through the same web site I am. You know, that personal connection.

@HiimTerry it's like Formula One racing, but with motorcycles. It's much more dangerous, since a crash involves getting catapulted off your bike, which means the riders need to be that much better than car drivers.

You're a Harley fan? Harley (used to) own MV Agusta, which used to compete in MotoGP. They won like... 10 world championships.

CLAME for some epic, epic footage from the final two laps of a race earlier this season.

They also used to own Buell, which they just kicked to the curb. Harley has no need for riders under the age of 50, I guess.

That footage made me leave ass marks in my chair. To think, they do this stuff less than 20 miles away from me, at Road Atlanta, regularly. I think I'll go next time.

@HiimTerry I like to say there are three kinds of people in the world: People who love MotoGP, people who have never seen it before, and people who are afraid of loud noises.

There's MotoGP (which is prototype motorcycle racing) and World Superbike (which is production motorcycle racing). On top of that, there's the AMA, which is like World Superbike but for America only.

Just two weeks ago, Ben Spies, a Texan, won the World Superbike championship as a rookie. He's a rising star, and he's American!
