    Patch

    Awhile back dropped into local dealer to poke around, buy a couple little pricey service items and asked for a patch to sew on me jacket, just for something to do, free brand identity advertising. They didn't have the patch because they said they didn't carry BMW clothing. Go figure?

    Recently walked through local big box hardware/lumber/everything else store, and there was a rack of hats made abroad with every automobile badge imaginable, except BMW. Guess I'll pass on the jacket patch.

    Go to eBay and search for BMW patch. You'll be awash in a sea of patches of many styles. Several in the $3-5 range.

    It always seemed to me that most stores that had the bikes rarely had the gear. The difference always seemed to be the size if the store. I have a feeling that it costs a bundle to get into the BMW clothing business and smaller shops can't swing it.
    As for the patch, Remember the big commotion over the logo and the salvation of the "intellectual properties", while it's their (BMW) right, it seems to sour enough people so the demand shrinks. Harley Davidson has taken another approach

    Maybe they reversed the image when it was posted on eBay.

    Maybe it's a racing patch, you know, bikes going so fast the colors actually turn to the right? Hey, do you get a free patch when you buy a new bike? That would be a nice touch.

    I didn't find the color reversed patch but did find a dozen or so patches with a correct roundel and didn't get past page 1 on eBay.

    If I buy one, can BMW sue me for trafficking in counterfeit goods?

    Trafficking would be a criminal matter - they can't sue you which would be for a civil matter. Customs might seize your package. Somebody might fly from Berlin to find you to rip the patch from your jacket, but somehow I don't really expect that would happen.

    If BMW wants to go after somebody it is most likely the sellers brazenly advertising on eBay and I don't see that happening right now.
