Repsol Honda stars Nicky Hayden and Dani Pedrosa led an 8000 bike convoy through the Spanish captial of Madrid on Sunday, March 18, 2007.

The duo swapped their MotoGP machines for a pair of Honda CBR1000RR Fireblades as they were joined by 250cc Repsol Honda riders Julian Simon and Shuhei Aoyama. The 125cc squad of Esteve Rabat and Bradley Smith had to follow by car as they are both too young to have a road licence.

As part of the build-up to the Grand Prix of Spain on March 23-25, all six riders then appeared on stage to asnwer questions and sign autographs.
