The last thing CE needs is another motorcycle. I need another motorcycle. I've always wonder why celebrities get free crap all the time, when they can just go out and buy it. While us working class folks don't get nuffin' fo free!

I received the email a week prior. Dave/Akira also posted it up on SCS Jonathan.
Anyway, I ended up taking an early lunch that day to go meet him. Surprisingly there was, at the most at any given time, 12 people there. People would come and go. Colin is definately a down to earth cool-ass guy. I had my lid, Yamaha 50th anniversary one-piece suit, DTK DVD, poster and my R6 signed by him. Hanging with him and some other R6/R1 owners for the better part of 2 hours!

I also received an automatic email from Yamaha again and thought I'd follow the link to see some GP updates. I saw a link to his autograph signing and followed it. VOILA!!!!!!! I see a picture of Colin and I with him sitting on my bike and another picture of him signing my lid!!! WOOT!!!
