I don't understand why they would cancel one day of motorcycle news and events. Don't they already have enough NASCAR on their already?

That sucks, I'm pissed.

Are they still going to air races? I hope so, I couldn't imagine them cancelling everything motorcycle related.

Bike week really was lame but it was all we had. I used to Tivo t ans kip through most of the show until I saw something interesting. Most of it was just dirt bike stuff most of the time.

Bike Week wasn't all that. It looks like the motorcycle programming is being moved around a little. I think they are still gonna have MC's on Tuesday, just no more Gregg's Garage. Also, look at the lineup they have for Sunday. It looks good. Don't bail just yet.

What the hell is wrong with dirt bike news and events.



Greggs garage was kind of lame. The girls he had on there were all hot, but stupid

They should have some kind of motorcycle new program, at least once a week to keep us posted.

Hey Maybe, some day we will have an all motorcycle channel. Over the past couple of years the motorcycle community has grown tons... just look at how much this site has grown. 2001 I think was the biggest motorcycle selling year and with the popularity of WCC and other stuff like this we might just be getting a whole channel.

BikeWeek wasn't about dirtbikes

They still have TwoWheelTuesdays, they are just getting rid of that one show.

Do you mean the show " Bike Week" hosted by Dave Despain? I could see that going away since his hands are in several different types of race programming now. Plus you'd have to skip it on Tuesday if you didn't know the race results and didn't want to. As far as dropping "Gregg's Garage"... no biggie, it's not like he had compelling interviewing skills.
