Angry Got pulled over in Kemah!

I was on my way home from the lady's house off 146 toward 2094 and I saw a cop sitting in the middle of the lanes about to turn into the gas station, but sure enough right as I drive by he has to turn around! So I am driving..."bahhhhh baahhhhh baaaaahhhhhhhh!" and I flip the blinker to the left and get in the turning lane and the light is green so I start to make the turn and "BOOM" "red-blue-white-red-blue-white" the colors flashed! (Which I have to say, didn't quite agree with my Kawi Green Kryptonite Glow) He steps out of the vehicle "click, clack, click, clack" "Sir, can I see your license and insurance please," so I handed it to him (cause I am legit and all!) and he said, "the reason I stopped you tonight was because of your concealed license plate, it is way to far under the tire and is hard to read"

2378180059 00ef76385e

^Not hard to see even from high up

So he calls in my plate and asks a whole bunch of stupid questions just to say "okay just move it a little higher and you will be good to go, have a good one."

Over all I think and know he was just looking for a good bust but too bad I am legit. Nice cop though, just a pain in the a$s!

"Vroommm Vrrooommm Vrrrrrooooommmmm" as I drove away...

Bike plates are hard to read, regardless, especially when they're angled and up in there like yours is (not that I don't mount plates like that, too).

You should have done a burnout, then wheelied off into the sunset... give the poor guy something to do!

law just says the plate has to be mounted on the rear of the motorcycle. "rear" can be interpreted differently, especially on a bike. but compared to the stock location anytime you tuck those plates under the bikes they get really hard to see.

I got stopped the first day I relocated my plate. but i knew it would happen when i moved it.

HPD pulls up next to me at a red-light and says "Boy, wheres your license plate?" I say, "My bad, just got back from a track day. Lemme pull over so you can run my VIN and check insurance." He says "Put it on there when you get home."

Guess he was late for dinner...

I didn't see any when I left your house. It was smooth sailing for me all the way home. I notice a lot of people has been checking out my bike with the new LED. Thanks again bro. and let me know the next time yall go riding. I also notice the extra power and it came up on me and caught me off guard.
