I know, I know - "Read and Find Out!"

You sure MO isn't interested in a bit of promotion on the side of a certain Dark Highland Green Ford racecar?
I dunno about the sides...

If the silliness in NASCAR doesn't stop, someone is sure to start putting ad space on the underside of the cars, so you can see it when the car flies by inverted.

Promotion? What do you propose?
Lemme work something up.

It was just "idle thoughts", but if MO might be interested, I'd be game. Something nominal to help defray the cost of tires, maybe?

As I said once before - if they just wanted a couple of small (i.e. hand-size, etc.) "Motorcycle.Com"-type stickers; I'd do that for nothin'.

What would you charge to tattoo www.kennethmoore.org across the small of your back? You can pick the font and color.

I truly wish we could offer some kind of assistance, but there is zero budget for that sort of thing. In fact, stickers aren't even available right now. I've put in another request.

S'awright. I know all-about that "budget" thing, lemme tellya.

So far as the Stickers (an' Teeshirts, Mugs, etc.) goes - I'm surprised MO doesn't at least do a Cafe Press thing - only costs a bit of time (which I know is probably in short-supply 'round the MO offices as well) for design and links.

Yeah, we could certainly do a better job with our marketing efforts!

My only concern is the weight of those choices. I know a heavier bike can still be nimble but unless I can get some real world seat time I must rely on published specs and MO reviews to try to make the right buy decision. There is more to it than the corporate marketing hype would lead us to believe.

Well, then you should appreciate the VFR vs K13S test we'll have in a few weeks!
