Default This is not the only good BMW ad

...anyone remember the BMW rider (while passing a truck sporting two guys with "cool" shades and an apparently broken HD in the back) saying: "well they ought to make a movie Born To Drive".



Well I own a fat boy so what am I smiling at

Jeez!! Relax will ya. It was a joke!!



I own a '92 FLHS and love it. It's in the parking lot and no, I don't have aftermarket pipes, but I did punch a hole or two in the stock mufflers. But, it's not obnoxiously loud!!

Whomever is doing the ads for BMW in the U.S. has been making funny ads and billboards for a while.

About 3 years ago I saw an ad in one of the print mags with the tag line

"I didn't know BMW made cars until I passed one"

With the guys riding a K1200 I think.

that's my fave

That sign is hysterical! Way to go BMW for making me laugh and reminding us that we are all family on two wheels. Anyone with the slightest sense of humor will think this is very funny. It IS okay to poke fun at ourselves, especially when it's a message of well wishes.

Wasn't it "easy driver"?

All their ads are good except the "stinky guy "one. I thought that was pretty odd.

I'm not real sure of the demographic they were after with that.

Funny sign and, oh, how true! I went to a BMW national rally a few years back. After the closing ceremony, about a thousand Beemers fired up at the same time. I didn't even have to raise my voice to talk to my passenger. (Though I almost got blinded by the modulated headlights and reflective riding gear.)



Compare that to Main Street Daytona or the Weirs at Laconia. I know this means something, but I'm not sure what......
