yeah, I changed the plate on my Enfield, I moved it further back on the bike to make it easier to see too.
Wouldn't have bothered if they weren't supposed to be having a bit of a purge at the time,
but it was too small, the wrong font and the wrong format (I had it made up in the UK), the wrong colour, and it was hanging from the LH pillion peg mount so was half way down the bike.
Otherwise, I'm sure it was perfectly legal,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, icon_whistle

I didn't know there had been a change. The misses' bike has a small plate (like the ones on scooters) for aesthetic reasons - she didn't like the way the big plate stuck out from the mudguard.... :roll: :lol: but whatever

Mine's still on its UK plate because, despite having a carte gris for it, I haven't yet gotten around to buying a French plate. I'm slack like that.
