Way back in the dark ages (late 1980s early 90s!!) I used to ride frequently between Toronto and southern New Jersey... My favourite route, by far, was 219 south from Barfalo to 30 east across southern Pennsylvania... The ride through the Alleghenys/Appalachias to Wilmington was sublime!!!

cause that could be why things are different? we don't have many bigot/klansman type people & to me the ones that are...are hicks. haha!

My farm days were in the North. But - have lived in the South where the Klan is very out in the open. Twice when walking down a road with a black girl by my side - I had the experience of having a redneck swerve off the road to run us off into a ditch.

I never thought of that type being in the North till I spent some time in Upstate NY in the '80s, just across the Delaware from PA. My (then) brother-in-law (whose father was originally from GA.) was in the FBI and admitted to being in the local Klan and introduced me to fellow Klan members thinking I'd want to join. So they're there, just more discreet.

Although these are old posts and probably long forgotten....thanks guys.. as I wondered what happened to the Yanky presence in MotoGP ..IMO the greatest sport on the planet bar none ...

If you think its bad down there ... try Canada ... I went to 2 races a couple years ago ..one on a fuking go-cart track and the other, a extended by a couple curves, drag strip ..WTF eh ..!!

The only people I have met here in Vancouver who pay to subscribe to Moto GP are the owner and mgr of one of the local Honda dealerships ... what great knowledgeable people for a green horn like the Curl to learn from...

Third, Americans don't care about motorcycle racing so the tracks are all in a state of disrepair and largely less safe than those around the world.

Fourth, Americans don't care about motorcycle racing so nobody wants to spend money on any of the things I've mentioned.

Fifth, Americans don't care about motorcycle racing so neither do would be sponsors here.
Could it be because of that tractor style bike a lot of them ride
