---- and SPEED channel isn't even included in standard cable programming. You have to buy the extended sports package and pay extra each month so there are tons of people who don't even get SPEED.

Yes, I do live in the USA
Yes, the coverage of MotoGP in the USA is terrible at best (I have a motoGP subscritipion and ALWAYS watch the practices, qualifyiers and races live, even when at work)
No, I do not believe the USA is the center of the universe but believe there is poetential to increase the fan base/sponsor base by expanding and exploring other markets.
and Yes I agree that the great majority of motorcycle riders here are Harley fatzos that think wearing a motorcycle helmet is uncool.
Bring the GP to Texas pls!!!

You guys should read the lawsuit that Tavo Hellmund, the man behind the Austin track, filed against the current owners. The suit speaks more to the F1 race and the reasons for the delays in paying sanctioning fees and other problems. However, it's very relevant to what's going on with the Moto GP race. If the allegations are factual, the owners, who have no interest in racing, have eased Hellmund out of the picture. This is where the "contract issues" come into play. It would be sad to see a potentially good race venue lose a Moto GP race because of some CVC holdings-type people.
