Custom Number Plate Ideas

Wouldn't mind a custom number plate for my CBR500R. Would love to hear some ideas or see any that you have.

Here in Western Australia there is a small sized plate (190mm x 100mm) specifically for motorcycles but can only be up to 5 characters long.

The best I could think of was FIVER.

Hmm. We have 6 in the USA. Here are a few ideas: MYCBR, MYTOY, VROOM, FAST1.

Does the plate live on the bike forever, or do you get to keep it and move it to something else at a later date? If you can keep it, maybe something more personal to you, or generally "bikey" rather than so specific to this particular bike?

It could change depending on the state. California you can keep the plate which create a hassle when you sell the bike for the person buying the bike. Friend just ran into that, the guy buying the bike was pissed he had to go pay for a new plate.

In the U.K., generally, the plate stays with the vehicle for its entire life. We do have a system of "cherished/personal numbers" that the owner can keep and transfer from vehicle to vehicle though. At a cost, naturally. 😃

Yeah we can either choose to keep the plate (at a cost I believe) or keep it on the bike, generally it increases the value but on a CBR500 I couldn't imagine it making a difference to resale value.
I think GlenAnderson's idea is great, something more "bikey".

My Uncle Alf had a private plate on his car. Nothing extravagant, but it ended in ALF. My Auntie gave me the number as a keepsake after he died, and it now sits on my CBR. I'm not a massive fan of the more contrived combinations some people pay huge numbers for, but I like that it reminds me of my Uncle each time I go in the garage.

My worst fear about dying is my wife selling all my stuff for what I told her it cost...

I purchased an older Bonneville once and the black plate cracked in half on me. I end up having to buy another plate and could not get a black plate at that time, had to go with the new white plate. That really pissed me off at the time, because the black plate actually added collectability value to the bike out here. These days you can get the plates in black, blue, or white, at a cost, as with everything in Taxafornia.
