    enquired about rider, got postal address and sent it off

    was originally told not to worry as replacement rego stickers are cheap.
    It hadn’t been to rider school, but observed good riding practise and kept up with the group.
    Holder looked like it was reasonably new and had become brittle.

    Couple of things I learnt that day:
    -make sure labels are visible and secured, so loss is minimised and hassles reduced.
    -really difficult to park bike on back country roads in middle of nowhere, without chance of getting run over.
    -hard to keep up once you have stopped and left the group.

    its ok as long as you go round corners at or below posted advisory speed and put your foot down whilst braking on the front wheel. nothing you can do about them dogs though, they gonna get ya regardless therefor causing a no fault loss of rego holder

    Does the rego need to be always visible like the plate, or does it need to be presentable on request (ie tucked away but able to be pulled from behind the plate on demand)? How do you display yours?
    In Tassie, I used to use one of those rego tubes. Some traffic cops would say they were illegal, some couldn't care less. On my R6 there was a bolt on the tail fairing which I just put it on but these days we don't have to show rego in this state any more. Mr Plod just points his fancy camera at any numberplate and instantly knows if it is registered or not, who its registered to, and what their history is haha

    (Forgive the tacky, chinesium "bling"... I don't know what came over me but I'm better now)

    I liked how it looked compared to a large plastic rectangle with a label in it but yeah, I'm glad I don't have to have any rego on display any more

    On the DR I use the double sided tape that VTNZ supplies FREE of charge and stick it on rear fender above number plate. The label and the sticky tape survive multiple bike washings and all elements of weather.
    VTNZ also supply FREE the aluminium label holders.... so no excuses guys really...
    I find 12 months later the label peels off cleanly from the plastic, sometimes little glue gum remains but cleans off easily....

    As for reflectors picture this. You stop on a remote road in darkness. For whatever reason the gods decide your taillight and or other lights have failed, perhaps you've even crashed and lying on the road next to your bike...
    A truck is coming down the highway behind you, he's 12 hours into a 14 hour day on the fitth day of his 70 hour week... His windscreen is covered in shite... as he crests the brow of the hill at 94km/h at 48 tonnes his headlights pick out your regulation sized square reflector, his brain automatically processes this familiar object and he iniatiates emergency braking and manourvoures around you....

    But hey feel free to not be like everyone else and fit something not quite as easily recognised by the brain as a known hazard indicator...... Coming back from evening walk at friends place other week I wa sstrcuk by just how effective reflectors on back of car were....

    Rego holder

    I use one of the tubular holders you mention (about $8 from China - or $70 here),it fits nicely on the back of the plate and seems to cause no stress to the mount/tail tidy.
