He owns a racing team. He seems genuinely interested and enthusiastic about motorcycles. I think Jordan will have a positive influence on the sport and increase public awareness.

His logo is his. He can use it on anything he chooses to endorse. It is no more silly to have the JumpMan logo on a race bike than to have Marlboro sponsor a race team.

If he is courting stunters, all the better. Perhaps some young kids will choose to take their skills in a new direction. I'd much rather have them get involved in amature racing than in stunting on the freeways.

Why pick on Marlboro?
They have been in racing longer than you have been alive Hickey, unless you are older than me.

They have as much a racing heritage as anybody out there, still left.

I'm not picking on any sponsor. I used Marlboro as an example of a sponsor that does indeed support motorsports. They have every right to. Just as Michael Jordan has every right to sponsor motorsports via his JumpMan company.

Neither company is in the business of making cars or bikes or anything else related to them. Doesn't matter. They are involved in racing via their sponsorship and that gives them the valid right to display their logos on the machines they promote. If we don't object to Marlboro, why should we object to JumpMan?
