So I’ve written before about how amazing WSBK is and why if you like racing you should be watching. This weekend didn’t disappoint at all! Nicky managed a podium, and Sykes is now only 40 points down from JR in the standings. This season is FAR from over folks!
I decided a few weeks back to buy some tickets and ride my duke up to Monterey and I’m glad I did. The round trip was ~1063 miles on the Duke, and was completely without issue. Sure there are a few things I’ll do differently the next time, but it was still an amazing trip. Here are a few photos to sum up the journey!
I loaded up and set off from work.
Stopped in Goleta for the night
My buddy met me in Goleta and we rode PCH from San Luis Obispo to Monterey. Its something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’m glad I did!
We stayed on Fox Hill inside Mazda Raceway, and the view was spectacular
WSBK podium for Race 1
Nicky after his TV interviews was mobbed by people... it was cool getting to see him up close. He stayed for a while signing autographs and letting people take a ton of pictures with him.
