I keep reading and hearing people saying that we need to attract more people to the "sport" of motorcycling. What they really mean is to put more people on motorcycling. Why is it people call motorcycling (the type most of us do, commuting, travelling, touring, etc) a sport? Racing, stunting and trials, etc, are sports, as there is competition there. If you are being competitive on the street, you don't belong there. Take it to the track. If you are being competitive on open dirt trails, you don't belong there either. Set up or go to a closed motorcross track or closed course. Outside of that, motorcycling is transportation, a hobby and, for me, a life long obsession. But not a sport. Callign it a sport gives it, imho, the wrong image.
