New Commercial

I've never seen BMW motorcycles advertised on American TV. Yet I've recently seen a commercial featuring the 1600, then one with the GS driving to a remote spot in the woods to camp. Are they trying to sell bikes to those not on these forums?

Re: New Commercial

They must have caught their "mistake" because I haven't seen them since. I guess it's up to you all to promote the bikes plus buy them up.

Apparently that was the consensus from the other thread, still not sure who these ads would appeal to. I'd like to see Motorrad take some steps to increase market share and these ads seem to not quite hit the mark.
