Why are peeps so uptight about displaying their plates?

As per the header, I've never got the hide your plate thing.
I always took the view that if someone wants to look at your registration plate they can see it every time you ride your bike, unless of course the very skilled among us wheelie everywhere.
So why do people go to such lengths to erase / cover their plates when photographing their bikes?
I'll dig out a couple of my bikes and post them up (OUT AND PROUD!)

I've always wondered the say thing.

I find it strange that folks are more willing to show pictures of their young daughters to millions of "Strange"rs than showing a picture of their license plate, that thousands would see on the highways anyway.

The scenery isn't great, but most of the pics I have of my 690 didn't have the plate in them. I miss that damned bike.

I didn't even bother with trying to get FYYFF, figuring somebody already had it. So I improvised.
