In the IT industry we sell it as 'an undocumented feature' .

In the motorcycle industry I guess getting the marketing right is important.

It's not a fault, it adds "character".

Along those lines, since the upcoming products use a microcontroller, we were thinking about the possibility of an 'easter egg' of sorts.

PS, I am in the pool for the first lot of your next product aren't I.

You do need beta testers running '07GS'.








Post Script,

Why are you online when you should be behind the desk getting the Cool designed.

And no I don't want to talk to JJ. All he is going to say is ....



YES.

A one-question geek test. If you get the joke, you're a geek:

Seen on a California license plate on a VW Beetle: 'FEATURE'

Well, I just pulled the trigger on snapping up 10% of the remaining stock.
(That would be 2 units...)

The $157.50 for both units is about equivelant to 5-6 tanks of fuel (1,300-1,500 miles), which I can easily burn through on a long weekend of riding to a rally and back.

So, marketing;
Any word on when the final batch of these will be completed and shipped?
I am planning a long tour up the Trans-Labrador highway in July-August.
Will I be running with "Air" on that trip???

Thanks!

Just make sure that it is one that we can find easily.
I remember coming across a forgotten easter egg weeks later once.
It wasn't pretty...

Since then the family uses nothing but plastic eggs, and we are sure to check the count before hiding and after to ensure there aren't any 'stragglers' left behind anymore.

Oh man, you just set yourself up for a grand answer of gargantuan proportions…


















































YES, INDEED!

ps if nothing else, marketing does know how to take advantage of cultural trends and changes…
