    Is this BMW video cool or is it hip ?

    Obviously it's a BMW advertisement but the question is it the video cool or is it hip ?

    On one hand the bike hasn't been all bobstercafe'd to crap and has no fake "patina". Cool
    On the other hand there's some funky old stuff in the background. Hip? I'm not so sure the stuff in the background is "eclectic"or just left over because most of us have a lot of that stuff. Also the woman in the video is not 22 years old and dressed ironically.

    Hipster or just cool, whadda you guys think ?

    '87, '90, 90 & '91 XT350's. It's a family thing, wife says its an enabling thing. Saving up for a TW of my own.
    Looking for anything Yamaha XT or related. especially a brake caliper and master cylinder.

    Cool, if it really IS her bike.

    Lame if it's some actress playing the part.

    Thank you. It reminds me of why I've been attracted to motorcycles since I was a boy. There's a romance to them that other methods of transport don't have. It's the anticipation of a ride. The exhilaration of acceleration. The satisfaction when you turn the motor off and take off the helmet. The pleasure of having repaired or maintained it with you own hands.

    Even though my wife hates them, motorcycles are a fascinating part of life..
    God made mud. God got lonesome. So God said to some of the mud, "Sit up!" "See all I've made," said God, "The hills, the sea, the sky, the stars." And I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around. Lucky me, lucky mud. I, mud, sat up and saw what a nice job God had done.

    She does, and I'm ok with that. Nice classic boxer. 1980's Beemers are becoming the next investment motorcycles. Simple non-efi bikes you can still work on yourself.

    no neither cool nor hip. A better commercial than most because it contains a motorcycle and an attractive girl.
    Butt she doesn't ride naked.

    It's the scrambler edition, so it's a CL350. I had a CB350 in 1970 and went back and forth between Treasure Island, San Fran and San Diego on the weekends. Talk about a body numbing ride!!

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
