One of my first mods was getting rid of the rear license plate holding monstrosity. Got a New Rage Cycle. Tidy tail kit. What was nice was everything was already pre wired with the correct electrical connections plugs. It was plug and play. Took me 25 minutes start to finish. Here are the results

No doubt it cleans it up with sleek packaging but they are inferior in brightness compared to OEM (despite NRC claims) I wish they used high quality high powered LEDs…I would pay a premium if they did.

Not a fan of the integrated tail/turn signals myself. I find them hard to see at the best of times. Got some Motogadget LED signals and bar end signals on the way for a EVO I'm building right now.Going to be using 6 signals in total (2 front standard spot,2 rear standard spot and 2 bar end) I built this Franken bike back in 2016 and loved the brightness they offered. also you can use a "soft signal" meaning they don't really flash......more or less go from soft on to really bright on.

The NRC's are plenty bright, even in direct sunlight - I have the same tail setup on my 2021, and fit the front turn signals from the Gen 2 bike to my Gen 3 - no issue with mounting, but I had to extend the wires a bit.

I respectfully disagree and don’t buy into NRCs marketing hype- I have the rear kit installed on my bike but added BMW led signals (huge improvement over NRC) bright sun testing ….trust me I know what “plenty bright” is…:cool:

I can't believe you get away with that plate in Ontario. The first cruiser that came behind me, pulled me over for the same angled plate. ONe day lol.

I agree.
You definitely need a valid driver's license for the class of vehicle you're operating.
Not according to this video - apparently your constitutional rights as a citizen to travel that allow you to use highways….I don’t know what to believe but this guy just had a US passport - no licence plates and didn’t produce a drivers lic. :D

I don't have much to comment on that video, as with everything there are people who spend their lives going against the grain.
I can tell you, if you are unlicensed, driving unplated, and not insured in the US, you are of the minority.
The way I understand US law, driving is a privilege, not a right.

I agree. I know here it wouldn’t have gone well for that invidual.

Ive had experience with state troopers speeding - I was respectful and it was good experience as a Canadian. That said it was clear to me they are the people not to fk or mess with.

I just found it interesting that it was even open for discussion…on the video ! :D
