This article, the Today Show (or whatever it was) and this upcoming MTV reality show...i'm all for the growth of our sport, but i'd really hate to see a bunch of pseudo fans get into a trend.

Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

Growth for the sport....I'd like to see it however is happens here in the USA. Its already huge everywhere else. There are always pseudo fans. All the big sports suffer from that.

Not trying to make a direct comparison to NASCAR, but look what's happened to that sport in comparison to what it once was...abandoning many of the aspects that made it great, including the original tracks for the new "pseudo" fans. I just can't stand the stupid shit i hear at work from people in to bikes with the whole Harley craze, i'd hate it to spread to my beloved racing. The MTV stuff is really what i'm worried about. That channel is a scourge

Makes sense to me now. I see your point. Its 'cause we want it to be popular, but we still want it to be ours and then have fans to be well informed fans. I can relate to that.

But on the otherhand, you can't get away from NASCAR. Speed channel is almost NASCAR channel. How cool would it be to have a MOTOGP channel? I almost think I would pay that cost.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Thankfully GP and motorcycle racing in general just doesn't relate to enough people for the rediculous levels NASCAR has gone to. There's fine line between beneficial exposure and hype based in less than fact. I'd just hate to see people get into the sport for the wrong reasons and end up hurting motorcyclists as a whole (both in image and in the litigous arena)

NASCAR and Moto GP in the same sentence is basically comparing them. Come on!! I don't think the sort of people that frequent NASCAR are going to be interested in Moto GP, but hey if they are, they'll certainly learn what real racing is all about. If it brings some more races to the states, fine by me. Every sport will have poser fans, especially in America. Every sport will also have new fans. I had three friends over to watch the moto GP at laguna all who don't ride, never had really watched motorcycle racing before and now they are hooked. It's all good to me.

I was using NASCAR as an extreme example to better show my point...evidently, disclaimers heed no attention for you...watch out for the coffee from McDonalds...that shit is HOT!!
