Exclamation oppression and discrimenation

We as sportbike fans are being oppressed and discriminated against!

I mean there are 50 sport channels available, Hell even golf has it's own channel! Where the hell is one supposed to go to find sportbike racing? Even Two wheel tuesday on speed vision shows nascar for half the day

Where do you all tune into in order to follow the AMA Superbike, World Superbike, and Moto GP? .....and see the races

It is a giant conspiracy to keep us down!

Ok, maybe I am exagerating just a bit you know what i mean

numbers... pure and simple. How many dumbass hicks do you see when you go in public wearing a jeff gordon t-shirt or some other guy who gets paid too much to drive around in a circle? TONS!

Now ask yourself how often you see someone with motoGP apparel? never.

Now ask yourself what the better portion of sportbike riders do with thier bikes... (answer: ride around town and hit up the occassional twisty backroad... yes, I'm very guilty of this one)

Therein, you have your answer. There's millions of people who like nascar, so millions will watch, and ratings will be high. But the GP scene in the US is very very lacking. Over in europe I'm sure it's played more cause it has a bigger following. Here... it's more like a group of enthusiasts.

To answer your original question though... the races are usually on speed channel on sundays.

They show bike racing on public TV over there?

Man, public TV over here just has cooking shows and pledge drives.
