    Talking Controversy! What bmw is this?

    ...and I wonder if the cartoonist, Dan Pirraro, got permission from BMW to use the logo:

    http://dailyink.com/en-us/my_dailyink/index.php

    By the way, Pirraro and other cartoonists and funny types get together monthly at a local NY city watering hole. I bet that someone rides a Beemer to that event.

    Tessler!? Is that you?

    Unhappy I am sorry

    If you still get newspapers in your metro area, check out the cartoon "Bizzaro".

    Perhaps someone with a good scanner can uplift it to the net for all to view.

    Ride safe,

    Here's the comic strip

    I don't know if this is a complement or an insult? I'll take it as a complement that a BMW was used.

    Thumbs up

    Thank you, Jeff!

    I think it is great that the artist used a BMW!

    I just wonder what we'll think looking back on this in 15 years. Why 15?

    Because 15 years ago Pirraro drew a cartoon with a guy riding away on a cruiser wearing leathers with the colors reading

    It was funny at the time. Today it would likely cause head scratching.

    That's still funny! And it would make a great rally t-shirt.

    I actually remember that cartoon. I gave it to my Harley-obsessed. compter-geek friend. He was the original "Biker Nerd".

    I think it's an artist's conception (loosely) of a /6

    large tank (non-toaster) /5 -- colored headlight with chrome speedo ring on top, white stripe on the rear of the seat, fork boots.

    In fact, it's an R75/5 -- the cartoonist even drew a CV Bing

    The artist always has both a piece of pie and a stick of lit dynamite somewhere in the frame.
    Ocassionally, if there is a picture on a wall, it will be of a alien with one eye flying a saucer.
