TLD KTM might be on to something...

I’m sure you guys noticed the TLD ktm guys running different liveries between motos. And it got me thinking.

Would outside sponsors maybe be more interested if teams switched up bike liveries between motos or races during the season? For example, sponsor A wants to get their name on the bikes but maybe doesn’t want to pay for an entire season. Allowing them to get the logos on the bike for a few motos or a few races a year would allow for the sponsor to get their logo and name on the bike, but also allow the team to gather more sponsors and therefor $$$.

Maybe this has already been tried and didn’t work or maybe I’m just crazy LOL. Probably never gonna happen but just a thought!

In Unlimited Hydroplanes, it was common for a sponsor to be involved for just 1 race, but those are (were) big billboards. The restaurant I managed sponsored one every year on Clear Lake in Houston TX.

I believe that 5/3 bank only sponsors Ricky Stenhouse jr.'s #17 Roush/Fenway racing for select races.

Yeah, that’s kinda where I got my idea from but seeing TLD run two liveries today got me thinking. It would also be sweet cause it would allow for teams to be a little more creative with how their bikes look, color schemes, etc.

Reminds me of the bikes that used to be plastic billboards, “skins”.

Be worth risking death to rip that Bud boat. WOW.

You learn something new every day - I've never heard the term "liveries".

So when BAR was formed, British American Tobacco wanted to run one car in Lucky Strike colours, and the other in 555 which was the brand it used in rallying... Bernie said no, they have to be the same, so this was the result.

This is from a sport that thinks numbers that you cant see or read from the sidelines , at least at that time, was OK
