Please tell him I said 'hi' and that there is a fan in Canada who pretty much worships him (except for the Honda days)

So, I met the Man... Mr. Eddie Lawson today at the Show (ended up not going last night... There was a Sharks game on, which they won :woot) and I must say, that even though I could only get one poster signed by him (That's all they'd allow, sorry Andy... :() He was very friendly, as were all of the Yamaha people. Maybe due to the fact that I arrived in my 50th Annviersary shirt :whistle

At any rate, I blew it by not getting a pic with Eddie, still trying to figure out why I didn't... I guess I was just so awestruck It didn't even occur to me. Oh well, another time perhaps.

But I also ran into miss Sara Walker at the show... and when I introduced myself to her as "Will from the R6 Messagenet" she popped up out of her chair, gave me a hug, and had her mom take a couple pics of us together.

And as soon as I can find a place to host pics... I'll put it up.

Also got some pics of the Ducati Monster Challenge entries, some of Arlen Ness's work, a couple pics of Rossi's US M1, one of Jason Disalvo's 05 Superstock Bike, a Yamaha Raptor 450 in 50th Anniversary colors, and a few other miscellaneous bikes.

Absolutely I did... In fact... as i was walking up to him in line... I said:

"Hey Eddie! So glad to finally meet you in person, you know, I have a friend up in Canada who absolutely worships you... His name is Andy ***** and he's probably one of your hugest fans thats never actually met you..." To which he chuckled and said... "So where is he tonight?" And I told him that I was your official envoy... and then promptly asked him to sign 2 posters, one for me and one for you... and the reply from outside the line was: "Sorry, only one autograph per person."

Yeah, that pissed me off.

So I talked with him about 5-10 seconds while he signed a poster, and then I was asked to keep the line moving... Nothing like at the Unveiling Party this October... but it was a "Show".

I have a few photos, but no where to host them right now.

Oh man that's awesome. I'm way jealous.

I bet Halfbyte would host the pics for you... He's supplying the bandwidth for Wojo's porn operation. :lol

Eddie is a very nice guy, and very humble. Not to make anyone jealous, but my dad does some work for him on his boat that he has. We have stayed at his house in Lake Havasu, which is huge, I will have to scan in the pics I have of it and post them. The best thing was before he had the hous furnished, I played Koosh tennis with him in the living room.
