A question for the Brits amongst us........

............where do you have your tax-disc holder?

Mine's below the left crash-bar, and I'd rather have it elsewhere - what do you think?

Cheers, StClair

Re: A question for the Brits amongst us........

Ok, I live in Belgium - but the old K100RT was a pure Brit bike, complete with Tax-Disc on the nearside front brake caliper. This caused funny looks when I took her to get new tyres.

In Belgium you do not have tax discs. They know who you are and what vehicle you have!

Best regards

They no over here aswell there are so many anpr camera's over here now that check to see if the vehicle is taxed mot'd. I dont object to them If I have to pay it so can everyone else.
Failure to display is also an offence over here had my tax disc stolen once off a bike and recieved a ticket for failing to display even though the bike was taxed.

Gentlemen, thank you for your replies - I quite like the idea of the one mounted on the deflector, I'll look into it - thanks again!

On the unused mirror mount. Sits horizontal, doesn't get in the way of anything.

Good thought, Axmax, but I already have mirrors mounted there
