That Aprilia comercial is a hoot. Its a shame the holier than thou crowd would have a duck fit, if it was shown in the US of A.



On another note, I still think that Supermoto can take off in America. It has a great spectator bang for the buck going for it. It has a pretty good TV broadcst quality to it. The proper promoter/regulators could get it up to the supercross level of coverage. It could be staged in arenas, allowing for spectator veiwing and ease of TV coverage.

BMW

First, I like BMWs, I ride an old BMW and I want a new BMW, but that sucked! I don't care how high the production value that just sucked...I need an insulin shot shot to watch.

Common, a kid playing in the sand with a /2, give me a break. No doubt there were a few whipper snappers long ago wishing they had one of those god awful ugly bimmers, but for the most part lust for a BMW shows up at a later age. Don't misunderstand me, I think classic 50's and 60's /2s are some of the most beautiful motorcycles ever made, but as a kid I thought they sucked. Funny, in the ad he spends his formative years dreaming of owning and riding a great handling BMW motorcycle, and when he grows up and finally pulls the trigger, he buys a R1200C. Yes it handles great for a cruiser, but it's still a cruiser. But, we knew he was going to buy the wrong model didn't we, when he didn't dump his ***** girlfriend and get a R100RS.

Re: BMW

Agree--that was the most maudlin attempt at appealing to empty nest boomers I've seen yet. Don't they know the entire targeted audience (at least those who can afford a BMW) have already bought a Harley that just sits in the garage collecting dust except for the occasional white-knuckler to Starbucks in perfect weather? WTF kind of people does BMW think actually buy BMW motorcycles anyway? Somebody there does need to be tested for adult-onset diabetes. And omigod that silly music goes beyond cheezy into a realm I thought was reserved for erectile dysfunction products.

Supermotard is coming.



The I-4 sportbike owners suddenly notice that the tarpits are soft and sticky.

Re: BMW

I muted it about thirty seconds in. I haven't heard more contrived lyrics since Schoolhouse Rock.

Of course it was for the 1200C which doesn't seem to appeal muc to the traditional BMW crowd.

I'd like to see them retry this for the new K bikes. They could use Cadillacs angle with Led Zeppelin.
