MotoMondo or http://www.moto-mondo.net
In April 2011, 2 Americans & an Englishman head off from London, through Europe, The Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan & Mongolia to reach Siberia by motorcycle.
From Vladivostok it is over to USA to complete the journey by riding to New York.
It will be a tough adventure ride through some mixed countries and terrain. A lot will be on unpaved roads - a bit like Ewan McGreggor did in Long Way Round.
We are doing the ride for pleasure and are paying everything ourselves but we wish to raise funds for charities off the back of our ride and as a consequence wish to look "properly set up and professional".
We ride BMW 1200 GS Adventure motorcycles - see: http://www.bmw-motorrad.co.uk/motor…llery.html
We have come up with the name Moto Mondo but we are open to alternative suggestions too !!
We will be setting up personal blogs and a website etc in due course.
The logo will probably appear primarily on our blog and website when designed.
It will also feature on any material used for fund raising. And of course the inevitable stickers for our motorcycles !!
It will be seen by a wide cross section of people in business, charities, motorcycle clubs etc.
Other motorcycle adventurers have used logos like these:
Our route to Vladivostok is shown here: http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?hl…44&t=p&z=3
The route through USA is shown on a file attached at the end.
We need a FUN but IMPRESSIVE logo that could easily be reproduced on blogs & stickers. We will also use the logo during our charity fund raising among friends and business contacts.
Our preference is for some form graphical representation / logo. Not just the words Moto Mondo... No "childlike cartoons" though please.
The wording must be in "english" but we wondered about using some form of lettering that "suggests something looks "russian / soviet" - but we are only throwing this out as a rough idea...
We quite like the idea of depicting the world or a globe but, again, are not wedded to this at all. However, if this idea is developed we need to be careful of another well known adventure travel website's logo: http://www.horizonsunlimited.com
We would like the Moto Mondo (we have registered http://www.moto-mondo.net as our web address) to feature with, perhaps, a secondary title.
At present we can't decide on this second title between:
1) The 3 Globetrotters
2) Round The World For Charity
3) All The Way Round - A play on The Long Way Round: http://www.longwayround.com/lwr.php
Any questions please post a comment and I'll answer as best I can.
We are very open, as I say, (if anyone has a better idea) to suggestions for the name or secondary title.
Do ask questions and I will answer as best as I can.
Thanks. Good luck
