    I recently removed the licence plate bracket and turn signals. What do you all think? I'm debating if I like the plate where it is.

    Have you thought of getting a Tombstone tail light and mounting it with that, where you have it does nothing for me, but hey, that's me.

    Most states deem that you must have a white light on the license plates visible from a distance of XXX feet.
    Is this going to be a problem where you live?

    We have no safety or emission checkups and police are few and far between when it come to traffic violations here. I remember reading a while back and there was no mention of the requirements for this. If it comes down to it, I just unbolted the bracket so it'll be an easy reinstall.

    I've been looking at several options. I've never seen them but I do like them. Thank you

    Some states require the plate stay horizontal and not be vertical.

    I not sure why you did this.
    I'm guessing you think it looks better.
    I do not.
    To each his own.

    The Scout's stock under rear fender plate holder is ugly-- there are side mount vertical plate holders, HD has them on lots of bikes. The Scout with a cleaned up rear end looks 100% better!

    Have you integrated turn signals into the tail light? I also see no front signals, are you just using hand signals? I love the clean look, but I love more giving a clear and concise indication of my intended direction without taking my hand off the bar. I know what I say behind the wheel when I see peeps that do not use signals, hand or lighted indicator. Don't like the plate on the fender, but I don't like the side mounted ones either, especially what they charge to buy a piece of metal to mount a plate on that bolts to the side of your bike.

    I have not yet. I'm thinking of integrating an LED turn signal to the luggage mount bolts. Eventually I think I want a bracket like the original scout to mount horizontal over the brake.
