    It's BMW Scooter Time!

    Hello to all the Scooter Enthusiasts! As you all know, BMW has entered the Scooter market with a couple of offerings.



    In keeping with the policy of adding a new forum for a new BMW line, we at the Mod Team were wondering what the members would like to name it.
    Once we get a half a dozen perspective names we will set up a poll so we can get a feel for what would be a good name for the new bike.
    It's OK to skip this if your not interested as it's easier for those who are interested.
    Thanks, the Mod Team.

    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    German for motor scooter(s) is motorroler, or roller for short. In keeping with the nicknames for the other boards, it could anglicized with an "s" and call it Rollers.

    Keep it simple and call it Scooters or BMW Scooters.

    BMW refers to them as "maxi-scooter" in their literature. What about "maxis" or "maxi-scooter"? Or something with the model specific, BMW C 600 Sport and C 650 GT?

    Well... We have airheads, oilheads, hexheads, camheads, and soon to be wetheads. How about Scooterheads? Or you could call it Shiftless Society

    (no offense intended to anyone... My second bike is a scooter for local stuff)

    Shiftless Society, interesting if not for the forum title, then at least for the club name.

    No poll or scooter forum so far, or did I miss it?

    I've been anticipating this as well, so far nothing.
    Bikes should start to be arriving at the dealers later this month, I've told my closest dealer I am definitely interested.
    As far as a forum, they seem to be dragging their feet on it. But then again I don't know how much interest there is right now, especially since they are still not out, except for the one guy in Canada who has posted here (43362 Jeff).
    Not feeling too bad as the more highly anticipated water-cooled twin doesn't have a forum yet, either.

    Both new areas are on the list...they will be up by the time most are available.

    Trust that folks are working on this. Most of the moderators have little to do with actual website build. feetdraggers on bikes...maybe, here...kinda harsh

    There are currently threads like this one to chat up the new offerings.

    Scootin

    In Canada about 20 arrived at the warehouse and all had been sold before they got there. Most of them in the Toronto area. How many are Scootin around other than mine I do not know. Every person says to me that's a scooter, why it is the size of a motorcycle. What can I say.
