For those who have not met Hounddog, he is a thoroughly good guy. As a former member of the admin team I KNOW that he puts in a lot of effort on the forum behind the scenes. The more you post, the more likely you are to get something wrong. As they say 'The man that never made a mistake never did anything'

No. I like it here, it's clean.

It's also safe on here matey. Not like the other place where anything slightly political will get you banned.

I see this topic has shifted onto other chat, but just in case anyone does read it:

Having watched the MOT testers screen, there is a section that displays legally allowed number plates, so the tester should check it. As said earlier, although you now can't buy a legal 3 line plate, as they won't have the makers name and post code, they would have been allowed if the bike had been registered when new, so 3 lines is correct for the registration.

It was at this point in the test, i realized I had left the 3 line plate on, but as we were chatting about bikes, I don't think he had his mind on the details of the plates :)

As many MOT testers don't realize the main stand needs to be up when checking the chain tension, I doubt many appreciate the difference in the plate age.

I was chatting away to Laurence the other day and after a brief chat about this subject, :roll: we came to the conclusion that the "show plates" are non reflective and that's how your most likely to get caught out .
