I used to tell my tour customers that once they get to the road signs that have no <other bike tour company> stickers on them they will realise that they booked with the right setup :D

I think it's acceptable to leave a bit of koki graffiti (or even a sticker)on the BACK of road signs. Doesn't really hurt? But I don't like the front of a road sign which I might want to take a picture of to be plastered with stickers.

I think something like the properly plastered sign in pic and there is one on baviaans as well is nice. But then I was super irritated with some stickers in Tankwa which really looked crap imo.

So for me it is a blurred line, but myself will stick to taking pictures and if I sometime do actually feel cool enough to have stickers with my name on I would like them on the BACK of signs in remote areas.

Do you still leave that cute "Flying Brick" confetti on the paving where you deliver?

I think its great to be able to see who was where. Its always interesting to ride where others have and to say " hay I saw you where there". Plus one of our Greyhounds got lost in the Winterberg and reported back that he just followed my stickers home.  :imaposer:

To see a sticker in a really remote place of someone you know is always great. Its not a WTF moment.

Daai rooi Karoo stickers wat op elke blęrrie roadsign in die groter Wes en Noord-Kaap geplak is, is slightly
irriterend  >:D
