From what I can gather from your post you think it's dumb for Kawi to market the bike as underground. Except they are simply cross marketing the bike with the game.

exactly.




I was just having fun, at marketing, this day and age.

I dont see how a corporate giant would even TRY to do something labeled "underground". those who ride Kawa brand, maybe. but actual corporate sponsored "underground"...I know it's "just me", I see it as an adult dressed in little kids clothing trying to act like nobody would notice. especially the other kids. YO KIDS! telly your moms, n pops to go with SHELL OIL and GASOLINE...cause we UNDAGROUND BIZITCHES!"

that and the fact that the website is..I dunno. childish. with the fire of motorcyclists under attack every day, Kawa, comes up with this game based inspired web page at their site..


on the other hand, Honda comes up with the "HOMER" :P

even the X(GOLD)-WING pales in comparison to this DN-01 as a " why are you even riding bike??" question. seems to me that Honda like going the route of "the peoples bike".. its so much like a car, but missing the roof, and 2 wheels. is it the "shiatsu-massage-parlor-chair-in-the-middle-of-the-mall" of motorcycles? i hope the adds state "no onboard auto pilot", and disclaimer stating "it is not allowed by texas state law to sleep and drive..please sleep responsibly"

seriously. if you dont want to be on a motorcycle, but want to ride..roll down the window in your car and hang out your head...OR get a freakin SEGWAY. your going to wreck no matter what. might as well make it cheap.

i dont know what my rant is. im just...



out of smokes.

Umm , not posting anything up would have had, essentially, the same effect.

Just a thought...!
