I do believe they had bigger crowds back in the old days when the winning margins were huge. The majority of the spectators were probably bike riders themselves. I doubt if I represent only 10% of the viewing public. The TV coverage where they mute the sounds of the bikes removes part of the pleasure. Some of the best spectating is on test days when you can hear them at all parts of the track. I even have records of Motorcycle sounds released by the BBC in the 1960s! The Moto 2 and Moto 3 are close because the bikes are the same. If we had a grid of only RSV212s or Yamaha's the races would be closer but oh so boring....
