I pulled the bike out of the garage( Because the condensation is horrible, but that is another topic) and I saw wires hanging from the back of my bike. I than noticed my side mount license plate was gone. I first thought the kids ran their bikes into it and broke it off. Than is saw the bolt was loose and the whole bracket was gone.

The scarey part is the last time I rode was from Indiana and if someone snatched it while I was eating I rode for several miles with a loose shock bolt.

Does anyone know where I can get an inexpensive plate light? I made the plate bracket so I will make another.

I think I would be more concerned with someone else having my plate than the frame. Report it to your local DMV as stolen.

I'm sorry, I 'm not having much luck with my lay down plate and thought I would pop over and borrow yours to see if it fit better. You don't mind do you? Just kidding.

No that really sucks. good luck working it out. But I really may have a lay down plate frame and bracket for you if I really don't work something out with it soon. No light though and not side mount.

Dang, that story stinks. Note to self-stay out of Indiana. I was snowed-in at Gary for a month back in the 70s. Now, I have another reason to never go there. Glad you made it home safely. We take stuff for granted; like you just expect your shock bolts to be there. I like the way the Saudi's just cut off the hands of thieves.

That sucks, man. I have no light for you but you have my sincere condolences. After the ride home you made from the recent tech session, this just adds insult to injury.

G'day,

Vinish

That sucks... sounds like someone liked your mount but was to cheap to make or buy their own. They probably just tossed your plate in the trash but as said above be sure to report it stolen anyway.
