OH, unless things have changed. Don't remember if I mentioned in this thread. It's illegal to have a tail tidy or the licences plate move from stock position unless you moved it further back. A group of 12 speed triple forum members all got tickets for this infraction.
Are you sure on this? Were they perhaps missing lights or had them mounted horizontally or moved towards the middle of the bike? The law is just this here:
3; § 20-63. Registration plates fastened; altering appearance of registration plates.
(d) The division shall provide registered owners of motorcycles and motorcycle trailers with suitably reduced size registration plates.
(e) It shall be the duty of each and every registered owner to keep the registration plates assigned to such vehicle reasonably clean and free from dust and dirt.
(f) No false numbers
Display of a number plate in other than a horizontal upright position, shall be guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor.
Talking to my friends that are LEO, they said it just has to have a light. Lawyer friend said that plate violations (other than missing one or using a stolen one) is not a primary offense. Though I'd need to double check with him since I was only half listening to him then.
