    Talking Name the forum/engine contest

    With all the news coming out regarding the new 2010 models and the reconfiguration of the RT/GS we want to set up a "Name the Forum Contest"

    This new forum will be located in the Garage and it will deal with all the usual items the other forums address but for the new models

    The rules are simple - the thread will track all the suggestions posted.

    At the end of a period of time or so the results will be tabulated and then a formal poll will be created to get the sense of how popular the suggestions were.

    At the end of the poll period a winner will be selected and a prize will be awarded.

    The winner will be the person who orginally suggested the name which gathered the most votes.

    Details of the awards will be communicated later.

    So for now - put in your suggestions and let's get this thing going.

    UPDATE #1 - ONLY SUGGESTIONS FOR THE NEW HEXHEAD MOTOR DESIGN WILL BE CONSIDERED

    UPDATE #2 - this thread will be closed on November 27th.

    At which time all sugestions will be compiled and a voting poll will be created.

    The poll will be opened December 1st.

    The winner will be selected from these results.

    UPDATE #3 - Prizes!!!

    For first place the winner will recieve a BMWMOA Denim Shirt

    For second and third place those contestants will get a BMWMOA Hoody Sweatshirts

    UPDATE #4 - Poll Link

    Poll Link Here




    From your Forum Team.

    Make as many entries as you want until the cut off for the poll - they just can't be the same entry

    Cleverness (or attempted cleverness) aside, I think "The Showroom" probably fits best with the rest of the existing forum titles.

    Maybe I'm slow on the uptake, but are we simply talking about naming a new forum that will deal solely with wrenching etc. on the soon-to-be-introduced 2010 Boxers, i.e., RT, GS and eventually other models?

    If the answer is yes, I suggest we call it: Camheads


    If the answer is no, then never mind.

    We are looking for a name similiar to the Airheads, K wedge, Flying brick kind of idea. The new forum will deal with the new models just like the Oilheads, Hexheads, K brick forums already do.

    Ah, I misunderstood the intent. I thought this was going to be about just new stuff coming out from BMW, not specifically the new boxer engine bikes.

    In this light, my prior entry is not fitting. I did pose the idea of calling them Camheads earlier in the new GS thread, but I think I was beat to the punch by a few minutes by someone in the RT thread. And now I see that it has all ready been submitted for the contest. It still has my vote.

    How about not creating a new forum?

    Isn't 90% of the bike the same as the '09 model?

    The Munich Exhibition.


    I was going to say The Berlin Exhibition the site of the 1923 unveiling of the R 23.

    The Six Pack for the new LT when it happens.

    Corn Dogs for the HP2 motor dropped in old models.
