Wow, one of each please.

Maybe we could fund two different types, one based on the start of dirt road sign, the other on the bike.

the idea of the sign which means "dirt road ahead" appeals to me, but it just looks like the end of a cigarette (as mango and LiTO mentioned) so it doesnt get my vote.
am also highly flattered that my idea is also up there (even tho no votes  :) ) but i have to go with the KISS one - no. 2

but its hard, as they are all really appealing.

well done LS, our resident graphics artist (for most anyway)

I'll have to go for 7, even though, for some reason, I can't vote :cry:

And no, I haven't voted in on this one yet.

In the ones where it says SA's Adventure riders.... would it not work better linguistically to say SA Adventure riders.....  as most will be on SA bikes, and for those that don't know..... they'll never know.

I guess after about 2 weeks of contemplation, and now being on this for a while..... Number 7 does get my vote for passing the message most clearly, as long as it is of a reasonable size.

How many will be printed as a first run ??

SA's Adventure Riders means South Africa's Adventure Riders
SA Adventure Riders means South African Adventure Riders
One denotes origin and the other nationality. A slight difference in meaning but simple semantics in the end...both are grammatically correct


However? I seem to remember from school that inanimate objects like a table, etc. does not get an apostrophe s at the end. So it should really be South Africas instead of South Africa?s? Clever English speakers please verify or dismiss.

's is meant for "is" as in He's going to .... He IS going to.

Thats what I was taught.

I dont remember the rest.

Its a bit anal though, I dont think anyone really gives a shit in this day and age.

The 's shows ownership, like the Adventure Riders belong to SA.  The SA by itself does seem to be easier to read and I agree with Grizz's point.  To me South Africa's or South African doesn't seem to be a difference.  I feel that SA Adventure Rider's will be easier to read and thus easier to identify.  Just my 2 cents

No 7 is most descriptive.

Send for printing and lets go riding!
