That's OK, rant away. I actually don't feel any need whatsoever for an HU or any other patch, so have no intention of doing anything about it. I felt compelled, however, to point out that some people find the current design unattractive...now that I've made that point I won't intrude further into your patch thread.

This is the new updated logo, which we'll be implementing as and when we have time.

As for "other" designs, we are definitely open to any submissions - we are NOT graphic artists and we have no budget. If enough people like a submission, we'll be happy to use it!

So for those who do NOT like the old one - does the new one above do the job for you, OR do you not like the whole concept?

The basic design is now 11 years old, and IS HU, so we're unlikely to toss the concept. Doesn't mean we can't do something else as well.

Logo contest?

A slogan contest will be posted SOON, so start thinking of a new HU slogan too!

Probably the best thing is to PM Grant or Susan and see what their thoughts are [or maybe start a new thread]. For me I'm not an administrator, just a general bod that got into a conversation with Grant about the patches [and roped myself into sorting it out], and have no say at all over the images or logos, so I can't say what will happen. Can see where you're coming from with having more logos, but unfortunately its not my decision.

[Grant, are you listening?]

I like that and we both appreciate that you used a picture of us for the new logo.

Available?

Are any patches of any design at all available? Will they be on sale at Ripley? I have some fag burns in my jeans. A patch like that would cover it nicely when not in riding gear! Oh and I will put one on my jacket if available...
Thanks in advance
GM

When a design is decided, I've used Franklin's to have badges made up before and they're incredibly helpful and nice people to work with. No connection just a very happy customer.

Franklins: Quality Woven Embroidered Badges: Embroidered Pennants, Banners, Epaulettes, Blazer Badges

Patches of HU? Interesting!

I may be interested in two pieces for my and my girlfriend's motorcycle jackets.

Any news so far on this?

Now got several holes caused by flying embers from the bonfire at Ripley!!

Did the new design happen ??

I'd happily wear a HU patch but not overly keen on the current design
