    Very nice Psu! Love the old photos, have you done much off-road riding? Cool that you have that old beast still, if you have the space you should never sell it :D

    How's the R6 treating you? Looks very nice in black. Why is your license plate angle like that? It doesn't look flush to the rest of the bike. I assume legal reasons, but I'm not sure having it that far back helps reading it. Especially in the evening. My mate has it like this, I think with the size of your license it would look pretty good. Or it is just me having a problem with that angle :O

    It's to make the plate more difficult to read :lol:

    You should see the lengths these hooligans here in the states go to, to make those plates invisible. :lol:

    They have to be on the back, generally facing backwards, but that's about it.

    What a useless law then.. I have to stay within a couple of degrees or I get fined. It even has to be lighted but since you can't turn off the lights on a bike it's allowed to have it directly under it. Since shortly it's not allowed to have it on the side like many Harley riders have.

    Short version of our law through Google translate
    Article 40 Road Traffic Act 1994
    1. The license plate must be properly visible on the motorcycle or trailer.

    2. The Board of Directors shall lay down further rules on the layout, application and illumination of the registration plate and shall lay down rules concerning the registration plate and its parts, as well as the marks to be affixed thereto.

    3. Ministerial rules shall lay down detailed rules for the implementation of the provisions of paragraph 2.
