Nortstudio did them last year. I'm sure he will give you the info of where he did them at... I know that FattMatt, Greenhornet and I all want patches too.  We were thinking if someone was ambitious enough it could be the same as the 2011 patch (image) but maybe change the colors and add 2012?  Then if we keep doing this it could go on like that.  Or GreenHornet thought we could do it like the boy scouts and have the patch (that says 2011 or 2012) and then just get patches that say '12 or '13, etc... to show the years you rode (repeat offenders may run out of "real estate" since we will all be doing this until we can't throw a leg over the bike).
As you can see the California contingency has lots of ideas but no ambition....so we leave it to you Master Chief 750...

I'd take a couple as well... I'm done dealing with getting them made though, after several years, I'm a burnout in the merch threads.   ;)

LOVE IT!
Altho v2.0 is smaller and says the same thing, or just 2 or II.
I like The nickname Lefty, but wouldn't want it on the patch.

If it says 2012 World Tour then it's not a 2, if it just says SOHC4 World Tour THEN it could be 2, II or v2.0.

Nice log updates all. I see a number of faces and bikes that I recall from last year's tour.

I like this ;) Knowing you and Greenhornet (havent met FatMatt yet) it seems to fit  - sort of like typical Californians no?  ;D ;D

BTW Id love to ride with you guys in CA - although watch out for Greenhornet when he rides behind you - he has a tendency to fishtail when braking  ;) ;) ;D

I stand corrected...thank you Bankerdanny...I will now just patiently wait while everyone else does all the hard work! 8)
Would love to see you again Andy let me know when you and your bike are out this way--just get ready for wind gusts they seem to follow me.

Disagree, just because you know its the 2nd annual, doesn't mean it can't be notated as such for the uninformed masses.

2 please!
Can I have a motorcycle when I get old enough?
If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lot’s of things. You’ve been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. It’s having the right attitudes that’s hard.

while we wait here is the basic idea, im still waiting to hear back from honda to use the wing so if they say no the design will have to be changed. patch will be a 3 inch circle, and if i can get atleast 50 ordered i will be able to do the same price as last year which was what 8 bucks? also if anyone has a better contact than customer service at honda for things like this please let me know. ive done this before with gm for the use of the chevy bowtie and if the volume is small its usually alright.
