This has been great but I haven't seen a pic where a F800GS has had its front mudguard raised at all.

Dude! I am old enough AND dorky enough to "remember" that sign! I'm surprised to see that it's still there and so well maintained. I suppose if we can keep the "Cheers" sign up, you can keep that though........

If you don't understand how those two things are different I can't help you. It's a LITTLE paranoid, sure. Why take chances though?

One of the BEST shows ever. Fleishman is an FBI agent now. Go figure.

OK, I think I understand. If they see your license plate in the real world, there's a mind-melting force field that surrounds it, so no one can find out where you live, right? Is that it?

yes, and when I see that Kansas license plate, I'm going to fly out there, look until I find it and then steal it. Once stolen, I'll ride it back home and brag to all my friends how I stole it.

Paranoia. That's all it is. But hey if it makes ya feel good cover up all you want. Just make sure you never ride home the same way twice and always expect that you are being followed. Oh, and don't park anywhere that you are not in visual range. Someone might write down your license number for future theft purposes.

Yeah but if I'm going through all that trouble I'm not stopping with just the bike. I'm working on the house too! So I guess you better never go back to your house in any vehicle cause any bum sitting at the park is just posing and will follow you home.

Seems to me people will see that "information" on your bike every time you take it out for a ride...

Having said that, I never put my license plate on my bike 'cause they get stolen... So I ride around with my plate-less bike and the plate inside the top case

That's how we do it in Venezuela... Anything goes

Nothing to cover:
