K-Bikes.com forum logo/header

Okay, the logo is driving me nutz ... so, instead of just being a whiner, I whipped this up.

Use it, or not

While your creation is a nice logo we cannot possibly use it. The BMW logo is a REAL BMW logo, or WAY too close. This would create problems in a heartbeat. (Unless you asked and got written permission) If you make some permutation so that the BMW logo in not AS BMW as it it, we could discuss it.

That blue/white "propeller" image is almost certainly protected under copyright as well as the full badge/logo (with the black border and BMW lettering). All the marketing images put out by BMW are copyrighted too (such as the image of the two K bike riders used on the top right header of the forum). I also noticed that your favicon.ico is the actual BMW logo - albeit tiny.

Given all that, I thought you guys weren't too particular about using the logo.

Here's something more in line with the current header image...

The second gif looks pretty cool, although somewhat i-bmw'ish. I'm not too jazzed about the word wrap of velocity in action. Maybe something with a fading shadow or something that screams "velocity" - Keep It Simple i'm Stupid!

Well, atleast we don't have to worry about the "fly without wings debate" anymore! I'm sure if we pick a new logo that might be the new discussion-bitch topic.

Like I said ... didn't want to just bitch about the current logo and not offer up an alternative.

If there's enough interest -- and the admins even want something new -- I'm happy to tweak my last version (I'm growing tired of the Arc'd "velocity in action" myself).

But, I'll let someone ask me before posting anymore
