Being a petrolhead, I usually make the pilgrimage to Jerez de la Frontera each year when the Moto GP rolls into town. There´s always a fantastic atmosphere on race weekends, with more than 120,000 fans (mostly arriving on motorbikes) making their way to the motor racing circuit just outside the city.
The roads along the route to the circuit are perfect for motorbike riding, and I never fail to be amused by the roadsigns warning bikers that they may come up behind slower moving cars!

Ha ha, funny sign. I think that sign would cause more accidents than the cars, because everyone would turn to look at it.
Yes, it´s a real head-turner, isn´t it?
Someone suggested the riders look like ninjas – and I agree!

Warning! Ninjas on motorcycles! Funny sign.
Hahaha yes, they DO look like ninjas, don´t they? lol
Love it !!!!! ROTF
Great sign, looks like an ad for stunt biking! 🙂
Hahaha …. actually, yes it does! 😉
It always makes me smile too, Marco!
Oh yes, often the picture says a 1000 words, he he – stupid, amusing and otherwise.
I like the colors. 😉
Yes, I do too. You can´t help but see it!
😀 Love this sign.
It´s cool, isn´t it? 🙂
They have this in Spain too! I have a pic of it as well. 😀
I think it´s a fantastic, fun roadsign! 🙂
Glad you approve, Stephen! 🙂
Do you know the dates for F1 testing at Jerez next February? Or do you only go for the motoGP?
OH not only Moto GP – F1 too!
According to Planet F1 http://www.planetf1.com/driver/3213/7967708/No-in-season-test-in-2013 there will be four days of winter testing at Jerez, beginning on Feburary 5th 2013.
I went a couple of years ago to an F1 testing day which was fantastic. There were only a couple of hundred people there, we got to sit in the stands and it only cost 5€ to go in for the day!
It´s a great day out if you love motorsport.
Petrolhead? that must be “British” (no offense intended!) for race fan? 😉
Love the sign!!
Yes indeed, race fan and someone who enjoys cars and motorbikes as machines and not just modes of transport. 🙂
great sign. Looks like a cartoon 🙂
Yes, it strikes me as being somewhat tongue-in-cheek, whilst being a serious reminder. 🙂
Cool sign… I love it!
Thanks for the Ping-back 🙂
You are most welcome, Diana.
Settled back in China?
Only been back 2 days and I think I am over jet lag. Back to work today and not ready to return just yet. Know it is going to be super busy for next few weeks or longer and not looking forward to it. It is too easy to get used to the lazy days of summer so it may never be a good time to go back 😉
Thanks for asking 🙂
