Haven't heard anything. Have you checked speeds program schedule? Two wheel tuesday has never been about squids. In my opinion anyway it's been about racing action. Everyone's got their own definition I guess.
Yeah, I saw the promo. All about squids, stunts, block-long wheelies, screaming overdrive guitar soundtrack, immature jerks wall-to-wall. Precisely the image of motorcycling I don't want to see glorified.
I am SO disappointed with Speed. What a huge waste of bandwidth.
Hey Speed guys... all's I watch on your worthless channel is MotoGP. Useta watch the historical programming, but you canned that. Oh and by the way, I TIVO everything, so your sponsors are getting zero eye-time. Have a nice day.
How can Speed make money by pursuing the demographic of squids who don't really have any money to spend? It's like the NBA pursuing the gangsta culture when in reality it's the middle class guys who can afford the tickets, not the punks.
This another sign of the GPTB and the V-Twing crown losing it grip on sponsers... Superbikes will target a younger audience with growing purchasing power. TWT was great when it focused on racing and non-cruiser stuff.
No, it's the natural progression of marketing. You beat one aspect of the market to death (the chopper thing) now you go after the squid sportbike aspect. That will run it's course in 4-5 years like the choppers have and than they will go into the streetfighter segment...and than maybe dualsport and so on until there is a show about racing hi-powered Vespas in retirement communities.
