It's Seriously Mainstream

Just to give everyone an idea of how mainstream motorcycling is here in Spain I took these photos earlier this evening. I went to a local mall (gasp!) to get something to eat and walked by this store filled with Auto/Moto gear. Mostly Rossi, Alonso - the F1 Spaniard and current world champ, and some Ferrari swag. When was the last time you saw an actual store, a permanent one, that catered to high speed fans? Thing is, I've seen several stores like this selling GP gear, pit shirts, every kind of sweater you could want, hats, etc. Who's that hanging out in the back?

I think the lights were too bright, because my head is so shiney. So is Valentino's hat, but he didn't seem to mind in the least!
