Thread: Mileage Medallions

    Mileage Medallions

    Okay, so I got a mileage award from BMW and it includes some medallions. They are very pretty, but what do you do with them? One is big an clunky and the other is small with adhesive on the back. On a motorcycle? Where?

    Congrats! People have been finding places to mount on their bikes:

    I suspect Voni/Paul have some good ideas!

    Somebody told me that after another 500,000 miles BMW should give me a new bike. They didn't give Voni or Ardys one after a million miles, so I don't have much hope

    I have a bunch from Harley stashed in a box with related junk. I suppose you could buy a gold chain and wear them around your neck!

    I use the big ones as paperweights. I haven't figured out where to put the little ones yet.

    The small adhesive backed ones are on the back of my saddlebag.

    I have put them on my bike(s) and Voni's bike(s) like Lee shows in Post #5. I have seen them mounted on fairing pocket lids and other places too.

    The medallion is a good conversation starter especially with non BMW riders.

    Very nice 1 owner bike
    Both the bike and the garage clean, neat and well organized quite the opposite of mine!

    Great suggestions, thanks. I'm thinking I should just order about a half dozen and then I can put them all around. And if one falls off, or gets stolen, or I buy another motorcycle, well, you never know
