i am going to work on this tonight when the kidlets are in bed. what colors does everyone want? I just picked red because MH is red and black.

any suggestions are helpful. unless you really like that other one I did, I am going to scrap it and start over. i don't like the eyes.

Home owners associations will allow it if u ask nicley, I know asking nicely is hard for some of you, so just do it anyways without there permission or really though the idea is not only to sell to members here, but to sell to all people and put in all places, liter the city with them, everywhere! Get some attention! We can go late at night and tape put all over the city hall too!!

Seriously, I been drinking too much right now, but the idea is not just your yard, but to start this as a sale in local stores. You know give $5 and get a sign for free to help out people, etc.. and use the money towards good things for riders down or families, fighting bogus tickets, etc..
This is just an idea, ur welcome to improve it or otherwise.

Great idea and good intent. Problem...

You bring up the City (COH). If we put these signs up, they will make you take them down, lest you get a sign permit. That's a fact, Jack. We can have them up on a daily basis, so long as we take them back down before the end of the day. If not, the COH will pick them up for you and trash them.

like the second version, mam. basic and easy to read. think you should remove the bikes, tho. whatever ya'll decide, let me know if ya'll need help handin out/puttin up/or throwin off buildings, i have no shame. we could also hit up malls, or large gatherings and do the windshield thing, just a thot. also, would it cost much to get the design on a shirt?

^^^^ You guys are not reading what I just wrote above!!


You put those signs up, and you will be fined or the COH will take them down. Put MotoHouston.com on there, and they'll know who to target. Maybe (& hopefully) I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure about this. I deal with these issues occasionally as a part of my Profession.

Houston has a pretty strict Sign Code, and the Sign Administration Inspector will enforce it (if for any reason, just to feel important ). http://www.publicworks.houstontx.gov...e_20060104.pdf
