"uhhhh... Last night we were riding offroad at the left hand ohv area. I'll go get a new one on monday"
"do you know the other 3 digits?"
"nope. Will it be on my registration?"
"yes".

I pull out a pocket full of registrations and start looking through for the right bike.

"here" he says ... And hands me his business card.
"what is this for?"
"i assume you are going to continue to the carwash and then go immediately home right?"
"yes sir"
"good.. Because technically it is an offense. If you get pulled over between now and when you get home, hand them my card and tell him we already talked"
"thanks!"

i didn't bother to remind him he pulled me over two years ago for exactly the same offense on my husqvarna.

...and with that, i let him leave with a warning

Dan: and how does that solve my problem? I run the plate vertically. Couldn't care less about rotating it so it is easy to read. The issue is catching the plate on crap rips it off... it is already vertical - that mount would gain me nothing?

I have the plate on my KLX450R mounted horizontally, but I rolled the leading edge of the plate back to eliminate the sharp edge-

I backed my plate with another aluminum plate, ~16ga or so. Still fold the bottom half under the fender, but a few whacks with a mallet and it'll flatten out "good enough" again.

I thought the stop was for a vertical plate, not a 2/3 plate.


I have however run all my plates on all my bikes w/ a Enduro Engineering plate holder and have never had a plate break.

I was with you that day. We were only about 2 blocks from your place when we (you) got lit up. I wasn't sure what to do. Didn't know if I was supposed to pull over too. It never occured to me that it was just your license plate. I figured it was immigration hassling you again, so I bolted

No wonder he's concerned about prison... Probably part of that cheese smuggling cartel we've all been reading about. Whaddya think that sprinter is really for?

'eh?

Same here, I used these on everything, never had a plate break.

I've never mounted a plate @ 90d and never caught one on anything.
