Caught the MotoGP Grand Prix of Germany 2017 earlier this morning (7/2) on ESPN. Marc Marquez (Honda) took 1st place and our Yamaha guy Jonas Folger took 2nd. Jonas rides with the Monster Yamaha Tech3 team.

These guys are wild. They're doing ~130mph+ in the wide turns and up to ~200mph on the straights. A brief interview with Valentino Rossi (placed I believe 4th or 5th place) revealed that the average $$$ for these bikes are in the upper 200K.


Nice!

The Isle of Man TT always makes me cringe watching the whole thing. It takes some serious cojones to go through that and I applaud them holy moly.

Bad poster!! No spoilers when posting about racing. :) Some of us didn't get to watch the race yet.

Also, the MotoGP bikes are upwards of $2 million. You're missing a zero.
