personalized plates

anyone got personalized plates on their bike? i see lots of cruisers with them. i thought i'd jump on the bandwagon. not so easy being clever with only 5 letters.

I don't see many, but I have seen them on sportbikes. Like you said, there isn't much room on a little MC plate.

Put one on my Harley...."HD4FURY"....showed a friend my bike and he said "Head for Fury" that's pretty cool....

And I said ahhh, it is suppose to say Harley-Davidson for Fury, but I do like your translation.

YA THINK???

I was going to get personalized plates. Here you can in NC you can get 7 letters, was going to go with QUIKSLVR, but obviously I was one letter over. What stopped me was that DMV wants to add a +$30 charge every year in your registration for the personalized platers. I can see +$30 for the first year, because the plate has to be made, instead of just taking what's handed you, but +$30 every year after that? Why?

So, now I've got some generic plate instead, and I couldn't be happier. I got a plate, on a bike, for me that was just the coolest thing.

Makes sure you actually want one for sure...

Its easier to remember for the cops and for the cages that call the cops on you.

My Vanity...

Plates are.... Corvette= GRA GST, and my 'Busa= GRA GS2, for, "Gray Ghost" and "Gray Ghost 2" respectively. My 'Vette is white, (Think Casper, and the 'Busa is Blk&Slvr).... In reality, I am not a "Vain" person, I'm just usually Quicker... ...

if you won't get a plate,then you wouldn't customize your bike either.the cop's will remember a custom bike.

I have never had a vanity plate on any of my bikes. Mostly for the price and secondly. I don't need the unwanted attention.
