Police approved licence plate holder

This afternoon, I left Petaling Jaya for Subang Jaya then came to a police road block by the motorcyclist lane at the Federal Highway-Jalan Lapangan Terbang roundabout. I am usually not asked to stop but as I was the only one riding, I was not surprised to be asked to stop. One officer looked at my road tax and seeing it was valid, didn't say anything. Another officer at the back of me checked my license plate then complimented me for having it clearly displayed (easy to see) and correct lettering size nor fancy (easy to read). He even took a snapshot to serve as a good example for others. With that, I gave my salam and scooted off. That the license plate holder was attached to the left side of the bobber was not an issue. What they were more concern was it must be easy to see, easy to read plus of course, a valid road tax. They did not even ask for my driver licence. I often used to wonder if cops would summon me for this off-centred licence plate holder, now, this experience says it all.

Outstanding frame I did not know until I read it here

This Peruvian web site is one of the best sites I've come across that has attractive photos of the bobber (also for other models at their respective page). It also has some outstanding information like the bobber's frame is the FIRST bike with a hardtail frame to awarded the European 3 Certificate of Homologation. That is impressive to say the least yet local retailers do not know how to exploit such information to their advantage.
