Speed Camera!

So me and a few friends were riding 2 weeks ago and well we were speeding.. I was wheeling and as soon as i lowered the bike FLASH and another FLASH. . Speed Camera caught me and the bike bike right behind me, both bikes are mine.. and i just recieved an offical invitation to visit the DMV

So i kinda put some thought into how do i hide my plates, so i brought some heavy duty door hinges, and put them behind the number plate..when i drive i lean back pull the plate up, it looks nice, BUT as soon as you speed, the plate drops, so im thinking RADIO SHACK must have a hydraolic kit or small kinda suspensions that i can electrically hook up and push a button for the plate to rise and stay up until i push it again.
Any one have a better idea? or done something similair or totally different? please share

Im thinking ill go to the DMV this week to finish this but i dont want to get caught again. We here dont get points off or anything, its just a hassle, all they want is $$$ its gonna cost me about $100 to $150 for both but i aint gonna pay that again!

There are some better bike specific kits out there but i dont remember the sites. Yeah it really should take too much to rig something up for cheap

well, is the camera tickets just cash or does it include points?
I know in Maryland if a spped camera catches you you get fines only.
Since a cop is not there to give points.

Bahrain? no point system yet ..they just talking now about weather to introduce one or not.
But As this country is rules by a KING and the King has FAMILY and FRIENDS..they people are above the LAW whatever it maybe so in Most cases like if i knew one of the princes then HEY BRO NO PROBLEM..ill be untouchable. Alot of the friends of the royal family here register thier fast bikes/cars into the princes's names so when you are waved down and dont stop or speed and they check who's car it is.. OH,its errm Prince So so they case goes in the drain. But for an average Joe.. errm NOPE!

Monarchies are lame. You can get out of tickets here if you know someone too. Hell, you can get out of tickets if you just go to court and talk to the judge 90% of the time, unless you were a d*ck or doing extreme speeds.

I guess so, a friend of mine is close to a prince..they are generous though, he just told him to go to the lexus dealership and choose any car he wants. Plus he just got him a R1 LE

I hope they are generous considering they get their money for being shot out of the right cooter.
