fast,

As bad as it is, bad Speed TV is better than no Speed TV. They televise, (most of), the Motogp races. And while their Motogp coverage is horrible, (too many commercial interruptions!), without Speed TV, I'd have to pay for satellite or internet access. My advice is to just watch the motogp races and ignore the rest of Speed TV programming.

Hey! "Livin' the Low Life" is a brilliant television program.

Time is a delusion. Lunchtime doubly so.

Simple math and not much different than what's been happening for years at other networks.

AMA racing coverage costs more than it's worth.

GP coverage is cheap in comparison.

The reality shows (Pimp My Ride, Stunt Bikes...) are even cheaper and unlike races can be rerun many times, making them cheaper still.

All i have to say, is that with Spies doing well in WSBK, they need to draw more attention to the series. During the race the commentators mentioned that there hasn't been an american in the series that has shown well for years, and without more coverage or mention of the races, ratings will not improve.

I mean come on, if anyone has been watching the races, they are freaking great to watch!

Indeed.....Vida got back! (Kiddin aside, I really do appreciate the low rider as an art form. Those guys are true artisans, even if their chosen canvas doesn't appeal to my taste.)
