Looks like a lot of fun...we have nothing like that here unless I'm too old and out of the loop.
All are welcome by the looks of it...

Good you were there to represent.
It's true, Ducati owners seem to hold no attitude about RC51's or Hondas in general. In my personal experience. The HD riders around here, well, different story...

Unless they are the elitist prick type Duc owners....but there is no cure for them.

Ricky....come to Indy next year, you will see at least 1,000 times that all in one sitting

So true, most of the Duc guys seem to be pretty nice and the Harley guys mostly talk about how their bikes are god and so on, alot of gixer guys come off the same way though, they know nothing of the RC racing heritage and just look at everything in a quarter mile or top end point of view.

The closest thing here is the weekly Wednesday meet at Quaker, Steak, and Lube (QSL) in St. Pete.
There can be a huge number bikes there at any one time.

Locally, we had our beloved "Fuel Motorcycle Cafe and Expresso Bar" which drew a daily and nightly crowd 7 days a week.

The cafe drew a hefty crowd for race days, plus BBQs, movie nights, dance nights, etc. For a small place, the joint was always jumping.
The food was excellent and the locally roasted coffee was divine.
People from all walks of life, from wealthy to poor, young to old visited the cafe.
The common thread was a common love of bikes.

The owner was quite a character. Originally from Thailand, he's a retired ballet dancer turned motorcycle racer, and Ducati fan.

Sadly, the econo crash eventually put it out to pasture. But everyone who considered themselves "fuellies" continue to hope it rises out of its ashes like the phoenix.

Here's an old link showing some photos. We were quite proud to have this place and were sad to see it go.

Excellent....Indy is better than Laguna by the way. (Racing:Advantage Laguna. Events and venues after race hours: advantage Indy.) I know this may sound obvious but he is made available a lot if he doesn't get hurt, so your chances are 50%.
