Tail Tidy

I'll post some pics when it arrives and I fit it.

Looks good! I guess you need to drill your own holes fo rthe license plate, but other than that it looks very plug and play.

It's simple, stylish, affordable, and completely reversible, paired with a set of Rizoma's or Kellermann's that would be awesome, I can't wait to see it on your bike!!!

Motone will have to go some way to beat that!

Nice, but they need to make one for us in the US. (It never fails to stun me how big UK plates are!)

Yeah, no kidding.

Not only do those gigantic, unbelievably hideous nanny tags ruin the looks of the bikes, but I have it on good scientific authority that the air drag they produce causes additional fuel consumption that is responsible for exactly 62.35% of global climate change. In other words, gigantic plates are literally killing us!

Or, at the very least, their incredible ugliness makes many bike owners wish they were dead.

You think our plates are big, have you seen the German or the Spanish ones? And I've heard you guys don't want to be left out in the air drag stakes you might have smaller plates but that's why you mount them on the side with all the aerodynamics of a barn door!

It doesn't, it's designed to run with dual function indicator/brake lights

I'd be interested to see it from the side, although the British Legends photos look great having had a look at my bobber's rear mudguard it seems the plate would sit maybe 45degrees below horizontal? That's not ideal and it would also mean the white LED plate light would be shining back, which might give you problems with the MOT?

I hope I'm wrong about this because I really like what they've done.
