Never lost a plate but had one stolen once off my old beater car a long long time ago. Crazy kids. Anyhow, of the DMV web site.

"The replacement license plate fee is $6 for a single plate and $9 for a pair; the replacement sticker is $20. If a single plate and sticker are required, the fee is $26. If both license plates and sticker are required, the fee is $29."

My old H2 used to eat plates until I finally put a hunk of plywood behind it. There was a design fault and I kept breaking brackets. This was years ago, but it was just a few bucks for a replacement plate.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

They probably got sick of R6 riders saying that their headlight wasn't actually burnt out, and decided to leave all the sportbikers alone

the begining of last season i took the stock rear fender off my sv1000 and made my own signal and plate bracket out of some thin gauge aluminum sheeting at work ...it was very light and looked great ....problem is that the tabs that held the plate were too light and as i rode the road bumps and wind bent the plate back and forth till it just snapped off like a pop can tab ..so much for my genius engineering skills ...so i had to call the police and report it lost and go buy a new one the next day ( sick as a dog standing in the DMV cause of my own dumbass fault first thing on a saturday mornig ) ...so i remade it the next morning out of 16 gauge steele ...i'm pimp'in now ......i believe the new plate was 10 bucks by the way ...i thought i'd have to get it in the mail like the original but they had them right there and just handed me one

thats why i have the common courtesy to tell someone they got a burger hanging out their nose, so they are not walking around work like that.
