Pathetic patch of the day


This is the patch from the 2012 BMW Motorcycle Owners of America International Rally that concluded Sunday.

I could find no one who could explain the “Howlin’ at the Moon” theme. Since the new moon was on the 19th, there was virtually no moon to howl at.

Also, I am chagrined to note that due to BMW’s anal retentive attitude about the use of their name, the patch and pin reflect the organization’s new identity as simply the MOA. Pathetic.

The attendance was only about 5,200, even though several thousand more people registered in advance, but chose not to endure the blazing heat.
