After literally years of being asked when would the US have it's own Motogiro d'Italia they finally built it and I, like just about everybody else I knew, was signed up and ready to ride. Conducted under the umbrella of The MEET at Monterey which included a bike show, an auction, the Motogiro America and the RedBull MotoGP at Laguna Seca, there was lots to do and see. The route included the start on Cannery Row, a lap of Laguna Seca, then down thru Big Sur to Paso Robles and back to Monterey. The whole thing kicked off with a bike show in the Monterey Custom House Plaza, and while the headliners were pristine restorations from noted collectors, many of the entries would be heading out the following day for the 5 day ride.

The missions chapel with it's thick walls was cool and quiet
This guy and his brothers and sisters were angling for a pet from the crowd
My favorite photo of the week
Back off the base, traffic includes military hummers and transports
Not everybody got out alive. OK, just kidding, a little gaffers tape and they were on the road again
