    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.

    Scooter direct and to the point..
    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.
    I answer to Roy, Chief, or Sarg.

    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?

    The term Maxi-Scooter has been around long before BMW made the C600 Sport and 650 GT.

    forum name: a lighter suggestion...

    "Scooter Trash" it would have a nice flavor of double entendre; i.e. scooter trash-what all V twin drivers call BMW pilots, and scooter trash- what bmw scooter guys/gals talk about on the internet, i.e. trash talking

    Plus there is at least one more scooter in the works, the C-Evolution.

    How about "Things you don't want your friends to catch you riding"?

    Or are there too many possible "items" to be discussed here?

    I like "Rollers"

    A term of endearment isn't exactly what I think of when I hear the term... at least not out here in California.

    I am going to steal a word I saw another member use in a different thread: Scootity. Kinda like mobility.
    Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.
