I admit it.
I am a certified and documented fool when it comes to vanity plates.
Every vehicle in the "Mueller Fleet" has a personalized plate.
In recent years I've been bitten by the plate bug so much that I secure the plate before I actually get the vehicle!
For me the rules are simple:
The plate has to say something about the vehicle (and perhaps the owners).
- My '72 VW Westfalia Bus is C*MPER with a heart for the *,
- You can take a pretty easy guess on the plate for the Busa, eh?
- Having 2 Siberians Huskies made SIBARU an easy one for the wife's car,
A plate that says, "HOT DUDE" doesn't fly with me (no vehicle reference)
In anticipation of adding a dual sport in the future I went searching for a proper plate. CA DMV has a wonderful online program that allows you to search plate availability and then order the plate if you like.
The bike is going to be a toss up between a BMW R1200GSA or a KLR 650.
I would really like the GSA but I really want to ride the bike in the way a dual sport was meant to be without worrying about dropping it.
After numerous unsuccessful tries I started thinking outside the english language. Having a daughter in 2nd year german as well as having the Uber in Deutsche dual sport road bikes on my shopping list, I started with kraut.
The first one I came up was available so I took it!
Just in case - AUF is German for variations of up or on, but it's pronounced somewhat close to OFF.
How perfect is that?
I know it'd be better on a german bike...
Man I love that bike!
But in reality I want to ride more dirt than roads and knowing me, when I get to dirt I'm not going to take it so easy...
But if I did "settle" for a KLR I'd like to mod it up a bit.
Love the look of this bike...
So the plate is on the way!
Enough about me.
What do you all have?
Do you have vanity plate rules?
