I do like Malcom and mount the plate to a piece of aluminum plate to make it stronger. However I have also lost one of those plates which is annoying to replace. So I mount mine to my pack, which I realize is not legal to the letter of the law, but it is most certainly within the spirit of the law. I just swapped over to a Veteran plate so I'm gonna dare some CO to give me a hard time about that after I invested several years of my life in service of my country. :lol:

The licence plate law is very poorly worded and open to a ton of interpretation. What exactly is the front or rear of a bike and is a flimsy piece of plastic really more secure than the muffle or wheel?

Perhaps they will only fine you 3/4 of the full penalty then? :redneck:

As mentioned the puckboard or aluminum plate reinforcement has kept mine intact now, if I could find thin UHMW plastic then I'd do that... hmmm thin cutting boards might fit the bill... :thinking:

I agree with the sentiment 100%, although I do use battery powered lights. The bikes I choose seem to struggle with additional loads; A 450XCF and a KTM 65. And that's also not to say that some battery lights are quite awesome. I have a Task Racing battery powered helmet light that's better than any stock headlight I've seen.
