Sportbikers never had a particularly good reputation with the general public... These "professional" stunt teams, especially the factory backed ones, are probably good for perception, if anything. They put on entertaining shows, are relatively clean cut (the factory guys, at least) and are also friendly and personable at the shows. Kids love it, parents are happy because the kids are - it's win/win.

You'll never get rid of the illegal stunters, just as street racers and other forms of vehicular hooliganism have been and always will be around. But this controlled and professional version legitimizes the persuit, and makes it something that the mainstream can appreciate.
