The Other Michelin Man

Michelin Bibendum
Anyone with wheels (motorcycles, cars, trucks, airplanes, bicycles) will have heard of the Michelin Open link in a new window tire company. And most of these people will have seen or heard of Michelin's corporate symbol, the Bibendum Open link in a new window, the man with several spare tires (literally and figuratively). Though over recent years, the Bibendum has become more politically correct by shedding some pounds... yes... he has lost weight.

The Michelin emblem is famous the world over, and not unlike McDonalds' Golden Arches, represents the tire company without the need to mention the company's name. When you see just the Bibendum, you know it's Michelin.

You'll find the spare-tire man anywhere they sell the Michelin products (not only tires, but maps, guides and books).

Here's a motorcycle rider who has his own take on the French company's symbol.....

...... either that or maybe he's just being extra ATGATTAll The Gear, All The Time - meaning you always wear all your safety gear..


Thanks Doug Open link in a new window
