I like Andys second offering the best. I know a lot of heads go for the boxer engine or the K but what about something like the american BMWMOA badge with a globe or the British Iles or Continental Shelf!!! Just trying to be politicly corect.
Forgive the spelling.

That's why I'm keeping out of it for the momemnt Andy - I've spent weeks trying to come up with something and failed dismally :oops: Figured I'd let this run for a while and then see who's design is the most popular (you're looking good so far) - keep 'em coming folks.

Tell you what - subject to the rest of the interim committee not hanging me for deciding this without them, if there's a clear winner whos logo is used, not only will you go down in the Club's 'Hall of Fame', we'll give you a years Club Membership free...........

Although the flat twin is undoubtedly the origin of BMW bikes, and is what the history is based upon, it's also been responsible for the BOF image of BMW riders which still exists today. we all know it's not true, but public perception says it still is.
I suspect that until very recently msot people questioned, would not even realise that BMW made singles, threes and fours as well as twins.

Using an apostrophe, I feel would confuse things. "BM Riders Club" simply means a club of BM riders, no more needed really.

Again, realising that most of the world don't even know that BMW make bikes, how about a globe in the middle, with the words "International club for the owners of real BMWs (BMs) - BIKES" being incorporated somewhere, perhaps running around the oustside of the middle bit?

Just in case people think I am not taking this seriously.

The concepts to encompass are vast!

We need to Include or suggest Non Gender specific!, Old, New, Motorcycles Racers, sidecars Sheesh

So I am just mushing a few things around!

However Tubbs will probably like this one :grin: :grin: :grin:

Is this not the Concept / Motto of the "New"Club?

"For Those that have lost their Way and are now Found?"

But I'll have to refer to The Reverend on copyright for that one

I like both of them Beemerjay.
Perhaps there is a place for all of the suggestions so far.
We could have a serious face and a comical face?

Another niggly point. Should it be The BM Riders' Club (with the apostrophe). Pat
Depends! If the word Riders is being used in the possessive case, then, yes, it should be shown with the apostrophe after the s. If, however, it is being used as a plural, then no apostrophe is required. So the question to be asked is: Is the new club the 'possession' of the BM Riders, or is it a club for (more than one) those who ride BMs? Personally I see it as the latter, in which case no apostrophe is needed, but I'm open to other viewpoints! :cool:

Or ...... If it ends up as a club-of-one, then it could be the singular possessive (BM Rider's Club)! ](*,) ](*,)

As John says, I view this as being in the plural and then we are safely in an apostrophe free zone.

Nice point though.

Although normally a stickler for correct grammar and getting the apostrophe in the correct place, in the interests of aesthetics I'd say leave it out, whatever we're trying to say!

Erm.... Logos, being plural, shouldn't have an apostrophe........

I guess you mean logos - without the apostrophe?! :grin: I liked the stylised version of a bike and rider, (the second one by Andy Raggett). Now, if that could be imposed on the globe ...

I don't know how he'd feel about it, but I rather like the line drawing of a motorcyclist that Indian has in his avtar. Very similar in style and theme to Andy's second one (which is excellent), but includes the BM Rider himself (or herself).

Something a bit like this (but needs a better base image)

I agree with Richard about including the rider, a good idea.

I agree with Richard too.

By the way Rich, how on earth did you post that at 8:09pm this evening when we were both grovelling in front of an oily gearbox on your garage floor at that time?

I think it's because the system clock is GMT + 1 hour.

So despite the sub-zero conditions we're already in British Summer Time. =D>

I think the last ones the best one so far. I have been trying for weeks and no where near as good.

I do like this last one John, clean bright and simple (also reminds me of another old one) - if you could tidy up the artwork up some we could be going places.......
