I dont understand why anyone would think it "cheapens" the brand. Repsol is not a motorcycle brand. Its a manufacture of oils and chemicals that sponsors Honda's race team. USUALLY, the point of sponsoring a race team is not to have fun or hang out, its to get your name on a race machine that is in the public eye. So if the whole point of Repsol and Honda's partnership is a give and take of money and advertisement, why in the shit would any of you whiners bitch that Honda is putting the repsol name on more shit. Honda gets more money, repsol gets more advertisement. Nobody at either company gives a half of a shit that you cry babies arent quite as unique anymore. Pick up your balls and put them back in your sac.

Too bad that's not what that was .. . If I was riding around on a bike w/ orange rims w/ repsol slapped on the side, i'd understand your point but i'm not and thus have no horse in the race. Just voicing the truth. Seems people can't handle that now-a-days.. call people haters, and other 10 year old sand lot names. O'well. It's been real. /thread

You really don't get this whole internet thing, do you?

Holy-crap it's a gas station too!!

Blimey, Non-Honda Repsol cars!


In the end the Repsol brand is nothing but an extra sticker and sponsorship; *mind-blown*!

X, WTF is your deal? Reading through your recent posts, the majority of them serve as the voice of dissent or ridicule against the original topic. Is that the only purpose you serve? I think it's you who doesn't understand the purpose of forums: sharing of ideas. You're a goddamn troll. Pure and simple.

Don't mind him; he's our well-seasoned rabble-rouser. Keeps thing lively!

You are incorrect. I speak truth and people like you don't want to hear that. People whining about their pretty plastics being tarnished by Honda placing them on other bikes is a joke, seriously.

Go online, open Google and learn what the internet is about. That'll teach you what a troll is. Getting all pissy and trying to call me out is more proof that you're new at this. Practice, please...then come back.
