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.
