  • No plate

    What are your thoughts about riding around without your licence plate on. Yes I know its just asking for it from the cops but after doing some research it is only a $50 fine no points. What excuse can you use if pulled over?

            They will screw you for everything they can if you have nothing there...

            But if you have a bit of plate still bolted there you can do the "holy shit it's busted and fallen off"...

            But then you have to go thru the effort to get a new plate...and you can't go getting a new plate every week, that would be suss...

                I once rode my bike from Coolgardie to Kalgoirlie after the plate was stolen from the bike. Before I rode the bike I made a report to the local cop shop so that if I got stopped I had a report number that could be checked. The officer that took the report suggested that I ride straight home and not ride until the plate was replaced.

                I knew that if I got pulled over I was up for a fine, but as I had to get home it was a risk that I was prepared to take.

                I was also told by the cop that it was not uncommon for plates to be stolen and put onto unregistered road trail bikes so that people can ride to various trail areas without appearing too obvious that the bike is unregistered.

                The plate was found a couple of weeks later.....

                    It was said on here a while ago that the fine for not having a plate is way bigger than that for having an obscured plate. The obscured plate fine being $50.

                      But you could amazingly 'find' the plate sitting on your driveway when you get back home!

                        once you've been riding a while you learn that there is a time and a place for these things and in time you can actually get pretty good at avoiding persecution/prosecution, at a guess my odds have been somewhere around 1 in 100 of getting caught doing something stupid in recent years.

                        If i were to remove my plate the chances of an altercation/transaction with a WAPOL representative on sighting my transgression or mere presence increase hundredfold, time and place will no longer matter and what could have been a simple tag and release operation becomes an expensive and longwinded process rectifying a defect notice or appearing in court.
                        Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

                        when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

                            Reminds me of the prawn leaving cockburn central the other night on a hyo 250 (accompanied by proper bikes) reaching down to cover his plate with disc holder, Heh seasoned PSBer.
