I have an idea for another Burgman tee shirt design...here goes...
on the front, fancy letters, across the top:
BURGMAN RIDERS

(then a nice picture of a burgman)
below that:

"Just don't give a SHIFT"


on the back, a picture of a burgman with the saying:

'SHIFTLESS RIDERS OF AMERICA"

What do ya'll think? I sent this idea to Doc, see what he thinks.

As you asked for opinions, allow me to be honest. The slogan clearly playing off of a word not used in polite company, while clever, would keep me from wearing such a shirt. Just not my style.

Since it clearly plays off the word in question...COUNT ME IN.
It would be our choice to buy or not to buy. What quantity of
tees in XXXL's would be required (even with the extra charge)
for you to include we larger individuals?

I like the idea and, if you whip it up, I'll have it printed for you.

Any design (or photo) can be printed on a shirt so, you creative types should get cracking!

Ride safe

I certainly see your point but, anyone who ever mentioned my lic.plate frame only chuckled at it. Maybe I've offended some but no one ever said anything to me.

On the other hand, I thought my "Shiftless Bastards" shirts were funny but I got a couple of emails letting me know not everyone did. That's how the "Shiftless Riders" shirts came about.

Minnmax,
I can see your point. But I thought it was a wee bit more tasteful in public then saying "shiftless bastards" It was just an idea I had, I know not everybody will like it, as I didn't care much for some that I've seen. We all have different tastes.

Please don't think I was trying to be critical of others. I would not be offended by someone wearing such a shirt. However, I was just being clear that my own tastes are such that I would not be comfortable wearing one. I would also feel the same about one that said "Siftless Bastards", but do understand and appreciate the humor implied by the terms.

One of my scooters is a Bajaj Chetak which has a manual transmission. Interstingly they latched on the reverse slogan, "Never Shiftless."

Link to Bajaj accessories page with the "Family Crest" patch with said slogan:

Just wondering if there are shirts for http://www.BurgmanUSA.com ? If not, someone could come up with a design and I'd be happy to print them.

Use the 2 scoot design at the top with http://WWW.BurgmanUSA.Com above it and maybe something like "Burgman Brotherhood" over the left chest pocket area (no pocket - just in that area). Just a thought.

Ride safe

Not positive ... but I believe Bryan is holding off until he get's the approval from Suzuki legal before marketing ANY BurgmanUSA stuff. Smart move in my opinion.

Sometimes it's easier to get forgiveness than permission.

But when you're talking trademark, forgiveness can cost you.

Doc,
You're getting some great ideas here for tees. Run with some. see how it goes. Maybe a few versions...international ones....ones for USA, and ones just pertaining to burgmans, no countries mentioned.
hey, ya think suzuki would back you financially for the advertizing you'd be giving them???

Shouldn't this be "Clutch? I don't need no stinkin' clutch!"? (Your grammar was far too correct.)

Personally, I like "Shiftless and lazy"
