Number 2 looks the goods - the larger font stands out more than the former.
I assume bike plates nation wide are the same size?
Of so, I'll put my order in for one please

I like the 2nd image too.


Streak,  I'll happily take the spare one off your hands.  I think it'll go well with my black on silver personalised plate.  :grin

I agree- all the name in one line looks better.
The only reason for using #2 is improved readability from a distance.

Yup the first one is classy.

The second ones font size is too big. Looks gaudy and cramped.

# 1 may be more aesthetically pleasing to the eye but from a pure advertising point of view you get more bang for your buck from #2.
Guess it all comes down to if you want it to look purdy or potentially attract more members   :popcorn

No 1, it looks prettier, and after all I AM a girl!  It'll go nicely with my ochre on white number plate.  Nice of you to choose the NT colours Streak  :KissBlow

I guess the only way to find out is to measure them. My SA plate comes to 21.5cm x 9.5cm

Definitely number 1 for me, it's more refined and sutle just like the ST is. I didn't buy my ST to be a billboard, I bought it because it was a refined style of bike with beautiful lines and after 10 years for the 13 and 23 for the 11, this bike is still beautiful, still attracts people over to ask questions about it.

My personal thoughts only, but if I wanted the ST to look like a European BMW then that's what I would have bought.

So, yep No1 for me.

Image 2 is easier to read, but image 1 looks classier. I'll have one in either style though. Great idea this.
