In Japan both are called "bem bay", Just because different people (and peoples) use different slang doesn't make any of it right or wrong.

and many BMW owners don't know ANYTHING about the technology of their cars - all they know is the are "cool" and "better than any Jap Crap or Yank Tank".
(wrong on both counts, by the way)

I corrected that typo as soon as I had seen it so you probably didn't see my correction.
Besides, who cares what people who don't own them say?
It's the people who own them who care because they say "my bimmer has been costing me a lot lately" and from that we know it's the cage and not the bike.
Everyone else wouldn't know the difference, nor would they care.
This just goes to show that people argue on the Usenet things that bother *them*, because what a bimmer/beemer is was never the topic here.

You sure got one thing right. Most bimmer owners WILL be saying "My bimmer has been costing me a lot lately".

Actually, "my" bimmer is more than a dozen years old, so, I found it funny that people consider bimmer owners haughty.
And, someone disparaged the beemer owners, but, as a group, they're usually engineers who ride in all kinds of weather wearing Aerostitch outfits where, when they go into a place to have lunch, they unzip completely out of their outfit and, leaving their helmet and gloves on the bike, actually, save for the boots, look pretty normal.
Watch how *different* a pack of Riceburners look, what with all that colorful leather; or, heaven forbid, a gang of Harley riders when they go into the bar, practically tattooed on the forehead with the moniker of a bike manufacturer.
Three different worlds on two wheels.

I look the same whether I'm riding one of my Suzukis or the Harley with one exception. The Harley has a handy sissy bar to hang the helmet on where with the Jap bikes i wear it.
I do not have any HD apparel; I just have the HD.
If I had a BMW, it would be the same. The closest I've gotten to Aerostich is reading the catalog. I could replace my entire wardrobe for the price of one of their Power Ranger suits.

I agree the Aerostich suits are expensive, but their quality is phenomenal and their customer service fantastic. They even let you ride for a month to test out their suits (ask me how I know) for size and fit (which is especially useful for big fat guys).
Also, they unzip beautifully so once you figure out how to get "in" to them, they come off easily. Which was my point.
Most Harley riders do two things differently than other bikers: 1. They wear less-protective gear (as a statement?), and, 2. They wear HD-branded gear (as another statement?).
Most riceburners do two things differently than other bikers: A. They wear colorful leathers, and, B. They carry their helmets with them whenever they go into a joint
Most beemer riders do two things differently than other bikers: a. They unzip their Aerostich such that they look normal in a joint b. They brave weather and carry lots of stuff in those ugly saddlebags
Of course, these are generalizations borne out of experience, but, you know what I'm talking about.

Most Moto-Guzzi riders do two things differently than other bikers: a. They carry a complete tool kit b. They spend most of their time on the shoulder trying to fix the damn thing. --scott

And in the Harly croud you have the "Rubbies" and the "Grubbies"
The "Rubbies" are "Rich Urban Bikers" - the same demographic as most BMW riders - although they tend more towards the "Yuppie" and/or the "Metrosexual" The Harley Rubbies tend to be older and ride "cruisers" while the BMW drivers tend to be younger and ride "baggers" Wingers tend to be Rubbies (either bagger or cruiser)who don;t like marking their territory and constantly working on their bikes.

Yeah, I read my mail from top to bottom, threaded and subthreaded, so I sometimes respond to mail that came later but to an earlier subthread.
People accuse me of not reading all the posts, but, I do, but it just takes time to get to each one of them to respond.
In short, for those who didn't read the history, it goes something like this...
1. In the UK, BSA racers were known as beesers. 2. Then came along BMW, so, they called them beemers. 3. Then the cars started being sold in the USA, so they called 'em bimmers.

Let's stop discussing this because there is a well known description which I pointed folks to, which clearly shows what aficionados call the thing in the US and in the UK.
In other countries, their typical customs and norms will prevail. Remember, I didn't bring this up.
Someone asked. I explained.
They asked for clarification. I provided a reliable reference.
They either accept the answer or they don't. There's nothing more for me to tell them.

Only dealers my family deals with is Bimmer, Subaru, Acura. They do excellent jobs selling/trading/servicing. If they screw you even by a mistake, they know they will lose you to the other dealer at the other part of the city. All 3 we deal with are family owned.

CY: I had a five spark plug tuneup, one time. They were honest enough to tell me about it. "in pretty tight". Some time later, I went after the spark plug which wasn't too hard to change, after the wheel was off and push the mud flap up. A couple weeks ago, I did an eight plug tune up on my van. That did wonders. Ought to done that years ago. The guy across the street from me kept telling me how miserable a job it was, and I'd best let him do it. He kept being sick or unavailable, and finally I just started the job my self.

CY: I'd have to agree with that. Real shame the honest ones retire.
