    bring on permanent rider numbers like in mx, then have a numberplate all year. THAT'S factory!

    If you want to be factory / joey pro (like KEV-AIR) you gotta undo your brake lines and run them through the hole without cutting and patching your plate. Save your vital sticker to fix a cracked visor. Happy shredding!

    I have been looking at punching longer oval holes and using Velcro cable ties. It turns out that type of hole punch costs significantly more.

    Shortly after this video ended Matti's plate flew off and blinded him resulting in a double femur fracture to both legs. Maybe 2012 Matti.

    Bring clear packing tape to the races just in case your ghetto ass race promoter tosses you a paper plate! Clearcoat the crap out of it before it turns to toilet paper.

    Large fingernail clippers are the best for cutting zip ties, leaves nice, smooth edges as they cut with a rounded profile. Well now, that is my contribution.
