I HOPE THEY HAVE MORE SHUTTLE BUSES THIS YEAR. I REMEMBER EXITING THE 2005 MOTOGP TO A FOUR HOUR WAIT FOR SHUTTLE BUSES JUST TO GET BACK TO CSUMB, AND THAT WAIT WAS IN 90 DEGREE HEAT WITHOUT WATER OR BATHROOMS.

Welcome to the party, pal. Where've you been for the last five years? Of course, they've fixed the shuttle bus situation. It was all in the news in 2006 when the race came back around.

They made a mistake the first year. Get over it. And use some lower-case letters sometime.

MotoGP and Laguna Seca (and Monterey Peninsula) are a marriage made in moto heaven!

I still here complaints about the shuttle buses. I had gone to the AMA races for 10 years consecutive without a single problem. After the 2005 MotoGP, I haven't stepped foot in Laguna Seca especially when Gill Campbell (track manager) would take no blame for the hell they created that year.

Well, I "still hear" it has been fixed. In fact, that's been my personal experience too. I've not been sitting on the sidelines for the last five years == I've been at the track, enjoying myself. Look for me on TV!
