ideas for bike related custom license plate?DougSloan
Oct 22, 2003 12:56 PM
Thinking of getting custom plates. Problem is, here in California, about everything I can think of is taken. You get 7 characters. Here is where you can find out what's taken (auto; not leased/company owned) thinking of getting the Yosemite plate:

https://vrir.dmv.ca.gov/ipp/PerLicensePlateServlet

I'd like it to be fairly obvious, not too contorted to understand. Only one I can come up with that isn't taken is BYK RIDR, which isn't too bad, I suppose.

Ideas? Thanks.

Doug
don't do it...that's such a southern CA cliche! (nm)ColnagoFE

The only problem I see BYK RIDR is people confusing it with motorcycles. How about

CAMPY10
BIANCHI
CELESTE (Mrs S might not agree unless her name is Celeste:-))
oo, good ones (no jealousy concerns) ;-) nmDougSloan

there's a prevalent p*rn star "named" Celeste. you might get undue attention, especially on the left coast, with that license plate.

don't ask me how i know.

Since you're not in Illinois you can use
b "4BYKN"

Here in the land of Lincoln it's already taken by yours truly.

...decipherable by the masses and states something not obvious. I really wonder why people bother with plates that only three insiders know the meaning of or are plainly apparent (MY CAR).
Does any other state have hearts on their plates? (nm)TFerguson

dunno; it's a "children's benefit" plateDougSloan

Proceeds from the sales and renewal of the Kids License Plate are deposited in the Child Health and Safety Fund to assist in child care licensing and safety reforms. Online ordering is available for this plate.

Kids personalized (custom) license plates can have 2-6 characters (numbers/letters) including the choice of a symbol (hand, heart,star, or plus sign).
You may also choose a hand, heart, star, or plus sign for the sequential plate. The symbol will be placed to the left of the sequential configuration.

Dangerously close to my own Illinois plate (4 BYKN).
Welcome to the "BYKN" family Doug.
