How much fun can it be riding behind an old police car?



Hope BMW is footing most of the donation to the charities because $1000 bucks a piece isn't going to cover babysitting these dudes.



Anybody catch the title of that article? "A Nice Biker Gang." Ugh. The general public is hopeless.

Well, I for one, was having a little fun. There's really nothing wrong with any of this. But since you asked, I'm not all that impressed by bunch of well-heeled guys who spent a whole $1000 to stay at fancy hotels, eat fancy food and ride with a police escort. Presumably, these are people that can afford to give far more than the thousand bucks without getting the luxury treatment in return. I bet if they organized the same event for pleasure it would cost them a lot more per head.



Make no mistake, this was a commercial event more than anything--PR for the sponsors and BMW and a marketing opportunity for the hotels to make an impression with rich folk. I repeat, there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. But lets not make them into a bunch of leather-clad Mother Theresas, either.
