There is enough branding on my vehicles so I keep it personal :)

That is not something we are able to do in the UK.
Some people move numbers and letters around to try and spell names or other meaningless words which mean nothing other than to themselves  :exclamation:
Over here bit like marmite really some people love private plates some people think they are stupid.
Personally if i had the money i would buy a plate that meant something as you have shown in the photo not a cheap one and move the letters and numbers around.
Both the bikes and car look good  :37:

Oh dear it's admission time  for me  :034: :034:

I have a personalised plate on my car which carries my initials, I bought it cheap(ish) some years ago, its worth about 5 or more times its original cost now.

I also have a personalised plate on my bike which I bought in 2007 :034: when I owned a ZZR 1400 the number is K14 *** It was a steal at £175.00 including transfer costs and must be worth quite a lot more now...however transferring it from bike to bike can be ridiculously expensive  :124:

Tyke
The value of plates as you obviously know has risen over the years.
I thought about buying a couple never did and the prices have only ever risen.
I regret not buying my son Gareth    GAZ 87     (his name being Gareth born in 1987 ) when he was 17 years old and just starting to drive.It was a £1000 I have seen it advertised since for a few thousand more.
If nothing else it would have been an investment but i think any money to be made on plates if you buy now would not happen.

Cool!

I just checked online with the dmv and that plate is available here in Flatistan, too. It costs $15/yr extra...not too bad.
