The sole reason Moto GP is not popular in America is because Speed TV uses Scott Russel. His southern drawl accent is so deep, most Americans not growing up in the back woods of Georgia, have no idea of what he's saying. I don't know if he's talking about moon-shining, BBQ-ing a pig , motorcycle racing, hunting skunks, or "Boss Hog is gonna get them Duke boys" Scott also is not designed for HD TV. Please Speed TV, you guys need to give a warning scroll, or put his visuals on a 5 second delay. Speed TV makes us listen to Scott Russel, instead of the two Brit guys for Indy and Laguna Seca. That scares everybody who may possibly get into Moto GP away. Scott is a great guy, and knows his stuff, but he's not audible to 99% of America.

"We fixing" = We are about to do something "He reckons" = The rider is thinking about something "Around yonder" = What happening on the other side of the track "Put some giddy up" = Rider is
