You can set your watch for the time of day by listening to freaking Classic Rock. Pink Floyd "Money" = 10:00 AM. Lynrd Skynrd "Freebird" = 10:04 AM. Dire Straits = "Money for Nothing" = 10:08 AM. Commercial. Repeat the above......every day.... every State.... every city......
Maybe if it was shoved down everyone's throat 24/7 like NASCAR people would eventual begin to understand it. Maybe it's just that almost everyone drives a car and anyone can drive in a circle so the general population can relate whereas a small percent actually ride or understand the physics involved.
Longride is speaking metaphorically. They didn't invent the term, the became emblematic of it and so, in a metaphorical sense, 'reinvented' the word because there were no good liberals for the term to apply to.
Of course, the Ann Coulters, Sean Hannitys, Rupert Murdochs and Rush Limbaughs of the world, spouting their bitter, vile diatribes against liberals 24/7 over the radio, TV and in print had NOTHING to do with how the term became what it is. Nah.

Bingo. Create a phantom enemy then knock him down. Being that most people are sheep, this kinda thing has worked brilliantly over and over throughout history. Longride is just another one alongfortheride.
Can't help but wonder how many motorcycle fans can't be in those numbers simply because they don't subscribe to Speed.
I don't, I watch the GP races off motogp.com.
Why on earth would I pay so much money for Speed when it's all NASCAR and it would cost me more in a month then motogp.com does for the year?
The ratings reflect who their subscribers are, and the subscribers reflect the content that they show.. the more they alienate motorcycle racing fans, the fewer fans will pay for the channel, and the more Speed will think it is stupid to carry motorcycle racing.. it's a catch-22, it's like we are supposed to all vote with our money first with no promise they will actually have motorcycle coverage.
