A "big" bike now would have been bloody ridiculous 40 years-ago.

Everybody has one. The show covers manufacturing of bikes and related industries. They certainly cover racing and personalities as it fits into the context of the core subject. The Yamaha and Honda shows come to mind as excellent examples of how racing influenced the design and production of bikes. I've learned quite a bit about the people who drove the industry from the shows as well.

The fact that they have a focus and stick to it, instead of trying to cover every possible aspect of motorcycling, is one of the things that makes the show good.
