Fed up with SpeedTV's crappy coverage of Motorcycle racing?

I have just started a group on Facebook (about 15 minutes ago) to lobby SpeedTV to improve their shoddy, crappy coverage of Motorcycle racing.

This weekend, we only got to see race 1 of the OPENING event for the most anticipated WSBK series in memory... Not to mention the new manufacturers (BMW and Aprilia) and the fact that Ben Spies (I know he rides for the opposition) is a highly touted rookie. We now have to wait until Tuesday to see race two.. I am trying to get enough people together to lobby SpeedTV effectively, so they get their act together..

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=54714271526

Thanks in advance...

Would be great if we had our own Nascar with bikes. I'd so watch that over Nascar.

You guys are missing the whole point though, sad to say but I speak TRUTH, Speed is doing exactly what a station that wants to maintain shares of viewers should do. Believe it or not NASCAR is more popular in the USA than bike racing, Speed is just putting on what is gonna get the ratings, I know it sucks, cause I like you guys love my bike racing, but they got to make money. Do you really think it would be good for buisness to air programs that get lower rating just to be fair to us two wheel crazies?

Besides you guys get with the program, there are all sorts of outlets on the net if you get a little creative, you can see and download all the bike races you want, and watch them over and over again, including practice and qualifying.
