Earthey colours is great, size too big, and PLEASE not round...pretty please!

Hein, wat noem 'n mens dit wanneer die sticker daai wit backing het?  Jy plak hom op, en trek dan die backing af, dan sit net die paw, en die toontjies met naeltjies apart?  Daais nice!

Kyk hier op die forum het 'n ou sy hele nuwe KLR so beplak.

IT WAS ME!!!  ;D  ;D
Uil, was bloody hard work. each peace was cut out by hand and stuck on the tank. Was cut from normal Reflective tape that is used on trucks. " lyk mooi van ver af, maar ver van mooi af"  :-[

And yes it is a bit much. I'm gona remove the 4 paws on the top of the tank. Just keep the sides.

Ek het nogal hierdie reaksie verwag!   O0Nee dit lyk cool, maar nie vir my nie, dis hoekom ek net 'n klein subtiele "pawtjie" soek!

Those big ones that they are designing now - no sireeee....not for me!

I realise that  ;D ... looking at some of the ones you did, my wife liked them ..... but then again she also has over 17yrs experience in 1st world design...etc. Very creative & arty... I suppose you "creative" people think outside the box - we normal okes normally hold on very tight to our ideas...

My personal opinion.... basic is best... although I'd love a Bloodred paw-sticker that could easily be transferred with one hand...  >:D so that you can "brand" those buggers in their cages that cause kark.... slap him on the side, back or roof and other DOGS can identify the bliksems....  ;D

See Guys here is the problem with the unofficial ones (and BTW Mike it does look good):

Firtsly we're trying to build the brand - so stuff like colour and fonts must be exactly right - thats a different font you used.  Secondly its Adventure Riding not Riders (the mods decided to stay away from the riders aka club name and stick to riding)



H

Hi Kilroy, I see that when I add the site to my favourites, it actually automatically named the site .... Adventure Riders...  ???

Dagaty!!!

Thats because in the default page for the forum (index.php) the sites description is given in the head section as
Wild Dog Adventure Riders.  Web browsers use this to identify/show the title of a site.

Here is the relevant line of source code in the php file:

<meta name="description" content="Wild Dog Adventure Riders - Index" />

Yes it was a error when we created this site (and thanx for spotting it) - we did rectify it at the top however.  Its RIDING not riders - because of the club connectation with riders - we're allergic to any form of club connectation.... ;D

Uiltjie - julle ouens druk nie net die mes in nie ne - julle draai hom ook....? ;D

Sorry to sound full of shit - but we do take the branding stuff seriously AND i can recall what happened last time we designed a sticker - mayham ;D

We're nearly there - hang in there

That's the best concept so far IMHO.

So...


Any news ?


02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away
