I will say this and let it go. Any other comments directed towards me will be ignored. I purchased my plate as an accessory that complied to all the laws applicable to the state. the reasoning behind the ticket was to ensure that I maintained legal licensing, registration and insurance. had I not had any of those items stated the ticket would have been justified. Wasted time? Yes and no. time spent in courtroom, 15-20 min. (before I got thrown out for talking). I operate a legal driven insured vehicle. I accept all tickets and and/or violations I receive for not abiding by the laws that govern the state. Yes, as mentioned I occasionally relapse but hey... There are numerous "hot spots" throughout the city, and I am finding them one day at a time. But i do not consider it hassling when you know where they are and you continually "run" through them. you are either a "runner" or ignorant to the fact. either case, [we] are the targets of harassment due to the nature of the mode of travel. Much like most red sport vehicles and and any two-seater sportster (car). at any rate, My two cents and oh yeah, ride safe.

We get it. You agree with the cop. WE GET IT.

I don't know why you have such a hardon for this subject though. It isn't like the plate was speeding recklessly down the road aimed at families in a minivan. Who is it hurting bothering? (Besides YOU?)

Got a ticket at memorial on gessner but the cop was the nicest cop I have ever seen. They gotta be nice. There's a good chance you're someone important if you're loving in that area.

I still have absolutely NO clue why you all still argue with him. He's got a law, fact or opinion that will always debunk yours no matter what you say. You all just got "X'd". (Wish i could put that in huge red fonts).

the law says the "back of the bike", where is the back?, cuz the inner fender close to the battery is really near the center of the bike.....ambigious laws FTL.

i'm all do what you want, just don't whine about it.........."you" wanted attention, " you " got it.

I said, yes since you guys never caught be the other 20 times. He was cool and laughed and said be more careful lol.
