What is the worst?

This is for everyone out there. If you are an aspiring rider trying to get sponsorship. You are getting more visability and then you get a big name company to approach you for sponsorship. THe only problem is that the name they want to splash across your fairings and leathers is Playtex. Do you turn down the sponsorship???

What would be the product sponsorships that would make you turn down the money?

I don't think there is anything that would be too embarrasing. I don't follow nascar but have seen commercials with a guy driving for Viagra, he is a spokesmen for guys that can't get hard-ons, it doesn't get to much worse than that. Maybe herpies lip cream could be worse.

If Preperation H sponsored me I'd put bungholes all over my bike. Money is money and anyone who wants to pay me to ride gets their product on my Kawi!

If I was fast enough to get sponsored by any company I would take whatever I could get. I don't give a flying rats ass what they put on my bike! You're getting compensation for motorcycle parts and tires. I don't care if they write something on my bike about a pimple on my ass, I'll still take their $ and ride hard.

Thats practical, I'll bet any racer can concur to almost shitting themselves diving into a corner or getting into a nasty tank slapper.

Money is what wins races. Also known as creative cheatings. Extra engine work can be done, better suspension parts you name it. Your only as good as the next guy till it comes down the the $$$$. I'd run with it. Look at Nascar, the larger teams have big name sponsors, in turn have many car on the track. Money is money when it comes to racing.

Look at the huge difference between factory riders vs the private's, it's huge. Are they that much better.

Nothing so far would be simply awful. Sure, none of us guys really wants to be associated with tampons, taco cheese or a deuche... but for the right $$$, we'd probably all do it. BUT, how many of us would want to be associated with Herpes? Nothing like a big herpasil creme sticker on your helmet. You're bound to score with the ladies then!

Don't forget the t-shirts and free samples the sponsor may want you to have on hand.

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

Screw it, I'm married! Besides, I'm slow enough that spectators have plenty of time to read what's painted on my helmet!

It just does that

I was not saying that literally everyone would turn down the money of a sponsorship it was merely a hypathetical on what would be the worst to have splattered across your helmet and bike? I realize money is money and if monosta 7 is going to pay for my addiction, uh I mean, racing costs that I am all for it.

Just having some fun on a boring couple days.

You could be sponsored by Michael Jackson and the Nerverland Ranch, that would be the absolute worst... You'd have pictures of little boys undypants on your bike.

B Money let me guess your trailer will look like a hole in the ground, next to the barn tower at Blackhawk.

Bike set up:
bike will be desert camo, and bike # Ace of Spades.
cemical warfare waste for oil
bo warfare liquids for gas
obviously air cooled (you know lack of water)
rated camel powered instead of horse power
Ak-47's as wheel stands

Tactics:
Race start lay mines
have pit crew lanch RGP's and Mortars at opponents.
Produce enlarged animals that eat bikes and people


I',m down I think I can finally get in the top 3 like that i'm in!!!

Swerve,
You are forgetting about the ever-popular Oil slick that I leave behind once I get out in front!
Although, it always seems to backfire when I come around for the second lap!!!
