well got pulled over this morning by the state's finest

guess he was board or wanted to see if i was legal. I knew what he was pulling me for he didn't like my plate where it was stated that it was the wrong place for it and it must be horizontal and visable from the back.I told him it is visable from the back he said well that is a weird place to put that plate what year is this bike?I said 04 and he says man wonder why the factory put that there?I said well they have those plate things for harleys that mount the plate just like that.He says well it's wrong i said ok and was nice the whole time cuz he was kinda.He said well it's nothing you'll get ticketed from but you will get pulled over alot for it.I said ok and he let me on my way.So in the state of MI they say it must be visible from the back i don't think it states how it has to be placed or else i'm sure he would have ticketed me.Hey joecop can you chime in with the legal stuff?

probably varies state to state....when I got pulled the cop said he could take pictures and ticket me and it would be up to the judge whether or not I got levied a fine.

Here, the plate must be affixed to the rear most portion of the vehicle. That would make the swingarm mounting option illegal unless the swingarm was extended past the tail section. I see alot of cruisers with the tag mounted on the swingarm though and they rarely ever get bothered for it.

sure he just figured a kid on a nice orange bike something has to be wrong here and tried to get me for something.He was checking out my blinkers and everything.Just trying to warn MI guys that if your up by me in bfe that they will pull you for anything out of the ordinary.But everyone has to understand up her along with many farm areas the cops have nothing to do so they do little things to keep busy.
