Got accepted...

Got accepted to be a corner worker for the Indy GP! A friend and I are thinking of riding out there and documenting our journey (San Fransisco Bay Area). Now its time to start planning and finding the right bike to rent to take out there. I don't think I want to take the RR since it will be a 4500 mile trip all together. The planning journey begins!

I'm hoping it turns out something like that, but we are not video taping, but will be taking lots and lots of pictures. Corner working with a camera is a big no-no, so there will be none of the action, but everything else is fair game.
