Jamie Robinson does Laguna

Dailies -



Driving home in the Pussy Wagon after partying with Ben Spies and Jorge Lorenzo in LA, Jamie Robinson told me he was trying to find a nice bike to ride up to Laguna MotoGP. I didn’t have many bikes in that week, what with the broken arm, but offered him the only thing we had going spare — a Yamaha WR250R. He balked at that, worrying it’d be too buzzy and uncomfortable to make the 5+ hour ride. What’d he choose instead? A lowered, stiffened Sportster built by Roland Sands as a showbike, not a rider. Jamie’s known for making smart decisions. Here’s the story of his weekend.

    What a crazy guy. ;-)
    Too bad about the revenue collector. But then, CA is broke and really needs the money.
    Good video!

    only 86 mph? we’re riding up through that same stretch today, this is a good reminder to keep it under LA freeway speeds.

    Looks like you guys found our table at the Bulldog in Monterey. That’s even more impressive than the bike. Haha.

    I like the thought of having a blank helmet and a pen for a big trip
