Thread: Who should sponsor BMW's WSB next year?

    Who should sponsor BMW's WSB next year?

    This does not have to be serious.

    I offer the Belgian Waffle Manufacturers.

    Think of the money they'd save on logos, just unscrew two decals, or wait for Ruben Xaus to bin the bike.

    I suggest "JAL" (Japan Airlines). BMW apparently wants to design, build, and race a Japanese bike, so they may as well get a Japanese sponsor.

    No kidding, they must be flush with money from all the replacements that get purchased.

    I can't believe how incredulous I am.

    How about Touratech?

    The first WSB with aluminium panniers, a gps mount, HID lights and a fuel powered camping stove.

    How about the BMW MOA?

    After all, maybe our chartered club membership with the AMA would help get the BMW S1000RR approved to race in the AMA Superbike so we can see BMW grill japanese in Daytona again. Oh wait, that's right, the BMW MOA has no weight to throw with the AMA in regards to racing. But then again who does! Unless your one of the race sponsors who has billions to donate to the AMA for more racing so you can restrict the competition. So much for rights and riding.

    why not just leave it as BMW, then we could have:

    bmwwsbs1000rr that's catchy, almost Harley like in simplicity.

    I think it should be the Coors Light/Home Depot/ATT/Pampers/Hooters/US Army BMW, myself. What a paint job!

    Do you know what numbers the BMWs have been allocated? Does anyone?

    I hope it's not 55.
