Dropper's Anonymous Update

OK, I'm gonna collect ideas until this Sunday, then post final ideas for input.

My last idea for consideration is the following...


TWO items.....One being a pin, with a design based on one of the options submitted by other forum members (so c'mon people, get your artwork up here, dagummit!--see, i am startin' to sound Texan already). I think I can keep the price on these under Five bucks with color.

Second item I am gonna' suggest will meet the "I like the idea of a decal for the bike" YET also meet the "I am not so high on the idea of ANOTHER decal for the bike" crowd:

A die-cast decal to put on the BOTTOM of the LT...something perhaps with "Dropper's Anonymous," a graphic (Perhaps a Roundel with a "D" in the top left Blue quadrant, and an "A" in the bottom right?), maybe mention of bmwlt.com, and in nice, big-ass (another Texas word) letters, "OTHER SIDE UP!!!" or alternatively "IF YOU CAN READ THIS, STOP LAUGHING AND HELP ME PICK UP MY LT"


Whattya' think?


Remember, Sunday December 1 is the deadline for ideas then I compile and post for voting, with the trust that my friends here won't leave me high and dry once I put money out for whatever we all choose as I am going to "sell" them for the actual cost plus envelopes and a stamp only.

yeah, October first.....forgive me, I have jet lag and a migraine, and I spent all day driving in fear that Billy Lane might cross the double yellows and squish me on my 1983 moped...

I like the idea of the decal and I would also spring for a couple of pins. And, don't worry about bein' Texified. I wasn't born here myself but I got here just as fast as I could.

I'm still in!

I qualified, as I said before. The decals and pins will give me something to fondle 'til I heal up and buy my next LT. We won't leave you hangin' after all the work with set up.

I like the "If you can read this...." decal idea.

Thanks for taking the lead!

I shall buy at least 2 pins and maybe even 2 decalls for the bike, hope you don't mind shipping to the UK.

I can send greenbacks - have a bunch my sister sent me to cover some stuff I bought for her and shipped, or I can get a US$ cheque sent by my sister. If it makes life easier, and other UK based folks want some, we could maybe ship & pay for them in one batch and then I can ship from here.
