Got nicked once for a small plate, was so much hassle havent bothered since. My plate wasnt even particularly small, but they had a special camera set up that could tell if the plate and or letters were the correct size.

But if you have no number plate, it seems there is a 100 fixed penalty and an option to go to court for up to a 1000 fine.  :121:

Recon I should just keep going with my NZ one. Great for speed cameras, but not so good with cops when they remember you  :121:

Not road legal? Blimey, who'd av thought it. They look nice though, better than a broken one.

Once upon a time I used a leather strap with a strategically placed magnet on the mudguard. Of course it was a trailie and that was purely to make sure I never lost the plate in the rough stuff  :745:

One of the best mods I ever saw (and have always remembered since), was on an immaculate Honda 4 at the Zolder rally in Belgium (some years ago now). It was a very smart looking bike, obviously well loved, and as I was looking around I noticed this extra big black lever on the left handlebar.

Well one thing led to another, there was no-one around, and I couldn't for the life of me see where the cable went or what it was for. So of course I had to press it to see what happened!   :192:  There was a loud click, but i couldn't see anything had changed on the bike.

it was only while giving up and walking away that I noticed the rear number plate had flicked to the horizontal !    :062:
