The question should be; what is EXPECTED from the sponsored rider.

Often times that's where the failure to deliver occurs.

glad Motorcycles Unlimited takes care of me everytime i go there with quality service and knowledgable staff. if not i guess i would be a fool to shop somewhere where being a customer not kissing would get me a bad deal.

i love all MH sponsors because the support MH and not for hookups. see sig below

i would expect my rider (if i sponsored one) to tell everyone that asked about (my services) and speak in a 100% positive manner about them. distribute cards with say every team t-shirt that sells (maybe stapled to the tag) said rider would attend several special (claytons business) events/year. said rider would lose his contract if he made a public seen that could damage my business. and thats about it. i would think with that i could get X number of new customers and that would pay for the $ that i put into that rider plus profits.

"hey **** YOU" and carry on ignoring the haters.. but i'm not Javi.. so i'm just going to ask Patrick to send you a PM and tell you what he thinks. If he doesnt send it..... well like i said about the haters earlier.......
