Leica may not be alone in unusual marketing trends!

The German BMW motorcycle distributer is North America often has charged an
additional admission fee to view BMW cycle products at various motorcycle
shows, while other brands of motorcycle continue an open door for visitors.

IMHO, the idea of charging extra admission to see a motorcycle costing
upwards of $22,000 would be insulting to some people!
