Changeable Plate Holders

Little help Please with a search that did not end well for me. I was looking for a license tag mount for Enduro bikes that could switch from the legal horizontal position to a more trail friendly position when you get to the riding area. I think I remember a ride report from someone up in the PNWest area that had one of these trick little license plate holders for trail bikes that where plated and wanted to stay legal on the street and slim on on the single track.

Only ones I could come across for enduro bikes and nothing like what I was looking for, I found here at FourStokesOnly.com

If any one has any leads I where I can find the changeable license tag mounts I would be very grateful or any other leads on some well made dual sport plate holders before I head off in the shop and spend loads of beer and time coming up with a solution.

John

Take a look at the Vendors forum. Thee was someone that designed/manufactured/sold these there. It's been a few months since I have seen them there but they are in there somewhere!

Sort of on-topic: I need to get a replacement plate. I was thinking of ziptying the new plate to the small, hydration backpack that I always wear. Anyone know how that would go over in OR and WA, if I happen to get noticed by law enforcement? Also, anyone know if I'll have to re-register and get a new plate number or will they stamp a replacement out for me?

get the other style fender (from mxc) that doesn't have the same steep down angle. pm for more info mat

i think you'd get guff from LEOs. i've had friends in the past who would keep their plate in their backpack, and would produce them when pulled over

(sorry officer, it fell off!)

Take your plate to a copy store (Staples) and get a few color copies (extras for spares) made of your plate, then get them laminated. Display one of the nearly indestructible copies on your plate holder and store your permanent one behind a # plate, under your seat or in your pack to show Johnny Law if you need to. Just remember to get new copies every year to display the current registration stickers.

The lady at the DMV actually suggested this to me. Gotta love Idaho!
