A cop would pull him over in a second for that.th12t33n said:just do what the guy before me did hehe, when i bought my bike the license plate was hanging on my bike weird i couldnt figure out why it was like that..
then my friend followed me home and he explanied it to me
KEY RINGS =) hehe just drill two holes in your rear fender and feed the key rings through the license plate, and then feed them through the holes on the rear fender hehe =) might take some modification, might not bee what you want, but hte ffect is the same, as long as your moving that is =) the plate will flap up and back and no one can get hte numba

th12t33n said:well i rode like that for a whole season....never got pulled over for it, and trust there are plenty cops in flint who seen it.
Redmenace said:The entire point of the thing is to allow you to get out of trouble, if it's something that will actually get you a fix-it ticket all by itself it kinda defeats the purpose.
Never worth the risk? I guess that's a matter of who you are asking.LiterTwin said:Agreed.....don't even bother. If I stop a bike with hide-away plate, light kill switch, etc, it is a guaranteed ticket. Running from the police will get you killed or put in jail, it's NEVER worth the risk.
I imagine some hypocrisy could be perceived from those posts, so allow me to clarify....1989cbr said:Never worth the risk? I guess that's a matter of who you are asking.
Aren't you the same guy that wrote all that stuff about how riding your bike is going to get you put in jail because you can't stay at a reasonable speed on your 200 mph machine? Seems a little hypocriticle to go around speeding and then hand out tickets and lectures to others doing the same thing.
I went ahead and corrected your grammar and usage errors in the quote, since I didn't want to litter my post with that nonsense. My actual reply is as follows:1989cbr said:Those are the kinds of things that make it worth the risk right there.

Speeding a little here and there is completely different from running from the police, and outfitting a bike specifically to do so. The posts about speed on the Hayabusa were about the experience of riding, since you very obviously missed the point on that one.
AND, since it appears that you didn't actually READ my post in this thread, I'll remind you that I never mentioned citing or lecturing anyone for speeding, only for equipping a bike to elude the police. I actually can't remember the last time I wrote a motorcyclist a ticket for speeding, it's been that long.
An experienced rider who chooses to speed within their abilities is an entirely different animal from a dumbass squid who puts lives at risk by running from the police, at the bleeding edge of their abilities, and the bike's. THAT is why such hardware on a bike is going to be immediately frowned upon by law enforcement, me included, while said experienced rider will probably just get a warning for speeding. See the difference?
Yes, I speed a little...hell, I speed a lot. But I choose my roads and times of day carefully, and I make sure visibility & conditions are right.
I don't, however, run from the police and put innocent lives and police officers at unnecessary risk. Ever. Which, in case you missed it, makes my opinion and the related statements totally free of hipocrisy.
Thank you for this excercise in correcting your flawed rationale. Please try again.
What the hell are you talking about? This thread isn't about speeding, it's about putting something on a bike that serves the explicit purpose of making it easier to run from the cops and get away with it.1989cbr said:Don't get me wrong, I completly understood the post I was referring to and I actually thought it was great. Point is, you admitted to speeding. That is in no way legal on the street, I don't care how careful you are. That excuse would not get me out of a ticket around here. If I was doing anything even close to 20 over I'd probably go to jail. Therefore if one has a chance to run it may be worth the risk for them to do so. Nowhere did I say if may or may not be dangerous. That's not the argument.
I just find it amusing that you guys are just like the rest of us in choosing what laws to obey and when.
Maybe my view on officers are a little skewed because of what I've seen in my area. They are out to get you. They are making money hand over fist at $150 for 1 mph - $188 for 10 over. They just cruise and ticket. They'll follow you and just wait for you to screw up.
