PostSubject: New Tank Badge wanted??? ....... Now Done.   Fri Sep 27, 2013 6:18 pm

Still thinking of do a Bad Cop type theme to my bike as it is a black and white I was thinking of removing the tank badges and replacing with one of these styles?
Which ever I choose it will be altered to say Bad Cop on the logo but not worked out which one to use and also what wording to use so answers on a post card please !!!

1


2


3


4


5


I like the last one but will change the wording to incorporate BAD COP !!!

I like it would look great on a black and white bike, would really make people sit up and take notice Have to be careful the the british police did not think you were imatating a british police officer or that could cause an issue

This is where I am going with my bike, paint job is already there so all that's needed is new decals and is red and blue spots for the front to replace my existing ones, on the decal side of things I wanted to incorporate bad cop into the tank badge but I now reckon I will have a standard LAPD/NYPD or CHiPs decal and then put Bad Cop in gold on the front mud guard.

Mine,



And how it will look-ish !!



Now you don't see too many of them on the UK roads !!!

You could have some fun with those red and blues on the front don't you reckon ??? lol

I think it would look pretty cool  The Blue and Red spots might draw unwanted police attention though? It would look nothing like a UK plod bike, so they'd probably let it go unless they were on a revenue raising mission.

Take it there are a lot of American style Police bikes in Exeter then Jeff ???

I can understand where you are coming from with the BMW brigade making there bikes look like cop bikes but this is something different !!! and I will still wear my Captain America lid !!!

I  don't really see how making one make of bike to look like a police bike to another make is different. This is only my view which wasn't meant to upset or offend anybody and if it has please forgive me.

Take more than that to upset me Jeff lol, like you say each to there own and I just like to be different, in no way am I attempting to look like a genuine bike copper, its just a bit of fun and a bit of an attention grabber.
Others say they don't get it when we try and make a jap bike look like a Harley but there you go, be very boring if we all had the same ideas on how things should look.

Siren
Not sure how you would stand on the siren as I have noticed all sorts of different sirens coming from blue light vehicles latelly that are not what we normally expect. I have just googled this and it is a mine field of contradiction but I have found nothing official one way or the other. I think as long as you do it and do not connect it up with the normal horn button you would be ok but when your aloud to use it would be restricted by the usual highway code on horns

Cheers Crash for that bit of info, like I said its just a bit of fun tbh but if I do fit one it wont be linked to the normal horn.

I think your onto something quite unique there! I love the HD police bike above and yours is a similar colour scheme to pull it off without spending a lot of money  There was an American patrol car as back marker on the ride of honour last week and it drew loads of attention and admiration.

Here In Texas USA the red and blue would be a sure ticket and probably a Impersonating a Police officer charge. Go for it. Go for Texas Highway Patrol. Texas Rangers Unit.

Saying dont make your Jap look like a Harley or any Yank bike is silly as that is what they were made to do just cheaper in the most part and more reliable :P

And Yank bikes used to want to be British. I removed my stickers simply because it used to belong to Mr Suzuki but doesn't any more, it's mine. I am as happy to own a Suzuki Intruder as Mr Suzuki was to take my cash before he let me take the bike home but from the moment I did a bank transfer it became mine & was no longer his, so the sticker had no place on it as he was not prepared to pay me any advertising revenue for displaying it.

Here you go.....me personally I think it looks FAB !!! makes me smile !!!





Jim.

My new speedo face is on its way from Marcin so that will be on in a day or so......so the question remains.....what the hell am I going to do when I have fitted that cos its complete ????
