I agree: this is NOT the place for political opinion. We came together here to support our passion and learn from the experience of others.
With that said, I always thought “SOC” was short for “Speedster Owners Club”. I appear to be mistaken. Not to mention the last thing I want to do is exclude Spyder owners over one little word. It took me a long time to find the SOC badge I now proudly display on my Speedster. Best part is, I can put it on a Spyder if that day ever comes! With that in mind, a simple “SOC” with some appropriate art would be quite a nice addition to my grill. After all, the original doesn’t specify if the “C” is for “Club” or “.com”!
If I were to design one, I’d make a badge with a grill (or two) with the original “SOC” badge on it as a sort of homage; or at least to remember the original. Simple, yet completely different.
The purpose of the badge, to me at least, is to express our individuality while being part of this group. The more opinions that get posted, the more convoluted the design process will become. And no matter the result, someone won’t be happy.
Regardless if the final design, I will be purchasing several...and above all else: thank you Rich for taking on this project!
