another great pointTwo weeks ago a young guy on a Honda 900 RR was on the Garden State Parkway at night and purposely tailgated a NJ Trooper in the left lane. The trooper moved over & the guy on the bike blew by him & took off, the trooper noticed there was no plate. But little did the rider know that 15 minutes before the trooper had recorded his plate# thinking he was up to something.
They traced the plate & the next day he was busted at home, turns out he had equipped his bike with a button activated plate flipper. He got arrested & hit with a bunch of charges.
Asking for trouble IMO.
And here I have been, riding my nine with a chopped up plate for four years, and not a single ticket.I'll bet one of the charges was "tampering with a license plate" (felony)
I've trimmed and moved plates too, no big deal. Cops get pissed when you try to decieve them by switching plates, changing numbers or reg. tags or purposely hiding the plate. Do something like that and you're inviting a felony charge which is like Herpes (stays with you for life)And here I have been, riding my nine with a chopped up plate for four years, and not a single ticket.
I took shears to my plate, and chopped it down to the outline of the letters four years ago when I first got the bike and de-beavered it. I have had countless black-and-whites on my ass numerous times, and all I got to show for it is some :bigthumbsup:
