    Looks royal suited for a rajyatra! But practically speaking I wonder who would want to buy these to ride on our roads?

    Guys let me know if its just me who feels this way.

    The pictures from xBHP have this watermark, smack in the middle of the pictures. To me it has always caused unnecessary distraction. Stunning, beautiful landscapes, the most amazing pictures captured by an insanely talented photographer, and then a distraction smack in the middle. Smack in the middle.

    That in spite of having a prominent xBHP displayed at top left corner of every pic.

    I understand that unauthorised use of pictures is a concern, but frankly how big a concern it really is? Are these pictures worth a lot of money? I seriously don't knwo if xBHP has some revenue model centred around use of theses pictures, but even if yes, is the financial value worth spoiling the brilliance and beauty? I mean some of their pictures are so stunning that I can just look at them everyday, but for the watermark.

    Its one thing to have your signature in a corner, but smack in the middle?

    If I am the only one who feels this strongly, then perhaps it is some sort of OCD, but if others feel this way too then perhaps xBHP can take cognizance of this. It is also unfair to the photographer when people are not able to truly enjoy the stunning imagery.

    Once again, my issue (OCD?) is purely with the watermark in the middle of the picture and NOT with prominent display of xBHP logo or text in a corner of a picture...

    And, stunning pictures and what beautiful motorcycles.... If only it was not for the watermark (sigh..).
