Surprised they didn't at least let you know. Like with a quick flick of the lights. You're lucky all that is still there and not skipping down the freeway somewhere. But honestly, not being a jerk, how did it get so bad this happened? I mean I have to check my plate once a month bc vibrations cause it to loosen up but never to this extent.

I didn't think of some jerk knocking it off. But your probably right. I always catch near my bike esp when it's parked at work. My coworkers always come back to the lab and let me know,"some guy is to close to your bike". Then I have to go out there and ask what's going on. 2 things happen; they scatter when th y see me headed that way or have a story about there gsxr they had 10 yrs ago. No damage yet but I have caught them touching my bike. I am always like" bro are you serious? Don't touch someone else's dumbass we live in Texas, did you forget what that means".

Probably vibration and fatigue. See it often enough.

Yep, lost a plate on a rental in Switzerland. Didn't get any speeding tickets from their cameras that way
