XM, Sirius and MotoGP/AMA racing

Does anyone have XM or Sirius? Are any of the MotoGP or AMA races broadcast on them?

I have exactly zero interest in getting XM or Sirius. I get enough bills at my house as it is...

i could go into why you shouldnt do it but I gonna save the space for forum. I did alot researching on XM and Sirius for the purpose to buy their stock. XM Technology is far and beyond that of Sirius. I have XM radio now and will be able to have Internet, Cable tv and GPS by the end of the year. Sirius is still trying to get channels to fit service. Needless to say I bought alot of XM's stock and alot of people have their service and Iam happy happy man.

I prefer XM for a lot of reasons, one of which is their superior technology. However, if I can't get NHL on XM then it's going to have to be Sirius.

I was a DishNetwork customer for years while they were promising NHL CenterICE. I got tired of waiting and missing games, so I switched to DirecTV and have had it ever since.

The investment in either is relatively small, $100-$200 initially and then the monthly fee. If I have to live with Sirius for an undetermined amount of time, until if/when XM offers NHL boradcasts so be it. I'm not out a large investment and in the mean time I can listen to the games.

Apparently neither offers MC racing so that's what it comes down to for me.
