To me, it keeps to the classic ADV logo, with the outlined oval.

Most of these stickers will be attached someplace on motorcycles [d'uh], and will be exposed to the elements. I'd expect the colors to fade before long. Sticking with as few colors as possible might mean a sticker that will look good for a long time...

BTW, what size will the stickers be?

Count me in for California (south-central)

I'm in for the sticker as well

The reason I changed it is that the pic needs to be 300 or 600 DPI. I could not find the flat earth map in the first sticker so I searched around and that is what I found.

If someone can find a free flat earth picture that is high resolution, and can add the words, please do. It must be 300 or 600 DPI, CMYK format.

I am not insulted in the least, but the slow response made me feel like I would be buying 250 for myself! Glad someone is still reading this.
They will be 3" x 5" oval

The replies may be slow, but with nearly 5,500 views, I think it's safe to say a lot of people are keeping an eye on Bacon's travels .

Once he's moving, I'm thinking a new thread will be opened in Ride Reports where his epic saga will get even more attention...

hmmm, I was planning to start Bacon off this Saturday but as yet, have no one to hand him over too??
Any advriders live 3-4 hours away from Melbourne Australia?

Worst case, I'll wait another week or two and maybe hand him over to Justal who has some time off in December...

Anyone??? I know GSDane is leaving merlbourne on Sunday to head for the high country so thats another option but Sunday is a bit harder for me...

'Scuse me, but can I meet Bacon too? Me and my humans are in South East Texas near the big brown ocean. I can show him all the fun stuff that we do on the big fast motorcycles over here.

I'll volunteer. Saskabush, right splat dab in the middle north. But I'd have to wait until, well the snow goes away.
