My buddy and I rode out to the MotoGP weekends in Indy, in 2008 and 2009, too.Thread-Jack.... we sat in Turn 15 both of the first two years of MotoGP as well! Too funny...
Also - the year they let people do parade laps.... I took the Ducati on the track with my buddy on the back.... on that very last turn going onto the front straight, I told him to “hang on” and that I “wasn’t going to really get on the brakes”... I ducked inside of a handful of other sport bikes and passed everyone scrapping pegs two-up. One of the stupidest things I’ve done and at the same time coolest as well. My best friend couldn’t wipe the grin off his face for days.
Man I love bikes...
Ok - carry on all!!

I did a parade lap at Indy in 2008, the result of a donation to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. We were told not to screw it up, no sling-shotting, etc., because we represented the PBTF and it would reflect badly on them, Indy was allowing this for the first time and might not do it again, yada yada.
This was way before I ever owned an action cam; I used a very early digital camera, meant for still photography but which (barely) had limited video capability. I'm riding with the camera mounted on my bike:
