    License plate numbers

    I've noticed in many of the bike photo's posted here, that the owner covers up the license plate numbers. I curious, why??
    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    Folks are concerned about some sort of idenity theft, I imagine. It is a bit odd when you consider there are a couple of threads dedicated to showing vanity plates mounted on bikes.

    Yep. Don't tell anyone, my plate # is R12GS.

    Actually, I think people are afraid someone can get your address from the DMV with your plate number and then come steal your bike.

    But we are safe with our final drive eating BMW's.

    The same reason some owners panic at the thought of someone knowing their VIN.

    Both are out there for anyone to see. I, like you, don't understand how this is OK when parked in front of your house but not OK in a picture of the bike parked in front of your house. But I don't have to understand it. I just accept that it makes some people feel better to obscure that info.

    Probably the same people who are afraid of the "non-secure" camping at the National.

    More fun... Just google yourself. See what others see.

    The ones who are looking for you anyway.
