technically no. because u can only see it from one side.

Legal = readable/visible at all rear angles from 50 feet.

i think actually the light has to make the plate legible from 50ft

the plate actually only has to be "at the back of the bike" that gives the the officer the ability to interpret "back"

I don't understand some of you guys...... It's the same as people who won't put a plate on the front of your car (which is also the law).

Unless it's some hardly hardtail bobber why would you want to put it on the axle?
Same as you guys who tuck your plate?

I know... asthetics blah, blah....

It also give a police officer just one more reason to pull you over.

It's a motorvehicle, not a race bike. I can understand (maybe) ditching the huge inner fender but if you are going to do that at least buy or fab a nice plate and inspection sticker holder for the rear and displace both prominantly. If you don't make your scooter look like you are trying to hide something then mentally that is one less thing the police officer is going to put against you when you interact.

end rant.

But, but, how can I look like a total badass and make my image that of one who is "riding dirty" without obviously hiding some , and maybe carrying a small knife in my sock?
Image is stupid, just ride.

Not saying the cop was right, but when I got pulled over this weekend for a non vissible plate. He suggested one that attached to the swingarm; as long as it is vissible from behind it is fine in his opinion.

I'm so calling bullshit on that one.

Show the statute.

ALL rear angles from 50 feet? Think about what that means and get back to us. Most, if not all, vehicles, not just bikes, fail that one from the factory.

I seem to recall reading in the Texas Transportation Code that a vertical side mount is legal. Looking for it now.

The hotbodies doesnt come with a decent bracket(plastic L bracket) or holes. You have to drill them yourself to mount the plate. Then pickup some metal l brackets and your done.

ALL rear angles from 50 feet? Think about what that means and get back to us. Most, if not all, vehicles, not just bikes, fail that one from the factory.
Only thing I can find about the 50' rule is this:

Quote:
Sec. 547.322. TAILLAMPS REQUIRED. (a) Except as provided by Subsection (b), a motor vehicle, trailer, semitrailer, pole trailer, or vehicle that is towed at the end of a combination of vehicles shall be equipped with at least two taillamps.
(b) A passenger car or truck that was manufactured or assembled before the model year 1960 shall be equipped with at least one taillamp.
(c) Taillamps shall be mounted on the rear of the vehicle:
(1) at a height from 15 to 72 inches; and
(2) at the same level and spaced as widely apart as practicable if a vehicle is equipped with more than one lamp.
(d) A taillamp shall emit a red light plainly visible at a distance of 1,000 feet from the rear of the vehicle.
(e) If vehicles are traveling in combination, only the taillamps on the rearmost vehicle are required to emit a light for the distance specified in Subsection (d).
(f) A taillamp or a separate lamp shall be constructed and mounted to emit a white light that:
(1) illuminates the rear license plate; and
(2) makes the plate clearly legible at a distance of 50 feet from the rear.

(g) A taillamp, including a separate lamp used to illuminate a rear license plate, must emit a light when a headlamp or auxiliary driving lamp is lighted.

I think the "side-mounted" plate holders look out of place unless it's on a custom Harley with fat rear end. Legally, it's probably legal as long as you have a license plate light that shines on it.

Visible from 50' at any angle from the rear would leave you WAY open to an easy ticket.

I was pulled over once and the state trooper suggested to have one on the swingarm. So I did. Been puller over like that a few times by HPD and Sugar land Pd. I haven't had any problem with local police.
