Isn’t free advertising on Irelands biggest biker forum, and competitor bashing with the one stone great...

I don't think Franklin Motorcycles were going there to sell Indian bikes, but to advertise and sell merchandise. Other brands are permitted (Honda have a stand). So, surely it should be either no other brand is permitted to sell their merchandise, or else any brand can sell merchandise?

While Harley are a main sponsor, they are not the only sponsor. Their sponsorship certainly does and should give them priority and advertising, but if BikeFest is promoted as a biker festival, then surely it should be open, or else call it a HogFest or a Harley Davidson BikeFest?

What's the score?

You've posted up zero information here, and I'm fucked if I'm sullying the good pages of my browser with bookface shite again, but
"Would appreciate any support" doesn't give us a whole lot to work on.
What support would you like?
Do you want to loan us all Indians and bikebomb gayFest, or what?

Let us know what you want in the way of support... or was this post just a precursor to a "Look at out wares" post?

the question is more likely did Franklyn offer any sponsorship to this event at all, or did they expect to just purchase a stand and trade?

We know HD put sponsorship money into the event, and without that initial cash the event simply could not happen. Theres a big difference between sponsoring an event and simply paying for a stand or stall. Didnt see the Honda stand last year, dont know how I missed that, but did they put sponsorship funding in to the festival?

So maybe IndianVictory will enlighten us. Did Franklin offer to help with sponsorship or did they simply want to purchase a stall or stand. there's a big difference between the two

And what would they get if they did sponsor it? Their name on the event? Do you honestly want it to be called the "Harley Davidson Indian Honda Irish Tourism Wild Atlantic Way Bikefest" ?

Paying for your stall space should be enough.

The only way to sort this is to have Henry Cole ( or some equally respected and revered journo feared thruout the land ) inaugurate a new motorcycle club to virtually slain these fuckers on bookface with a sustained campaign of frowney faces and shitty remarks that will cast them into the dark abyss of social media to form the constellation of an armchair biker who looks like santa clause in peoples perception.

This could gain traction and get picked up by the media with a well timed tip-off to Ciaran Mullooly ( yes it's true, we sometimes share a Sauna and compare weener sizes, his once got caught in the pine door of Hyades and the sound of the ravens caw was so raucous it made the milk in peoples tea curdle ) and have 'the gardai involved' to add leverage and lend credence and authority to your quest (a veiled threat by PM should do it) beware though - things could get ugly and really backfire if it spills rain in June and the harleyfest call in Teresa Mannion !

If it were me, and you just can't count on the weather, I'd virtually assassinate her (just in case) with an animated lesbian flash game that went viral right before things kick off, mainly to undermine her credibility, make her sporadically and unreliability burst out crying on TV and to have the general public unwittingly associate and think of Avril Doyle's snatch every time she opens her mouth., make no mistake - it's not the sons of blarney you need to fear - Teresa is your biggest threat in all of this.

Would going to Harleyfest be considered making an unnecessary journey, or would that be an ecumenical matter.
