My Secret Is Out

I've been quiet about it until now. Didn't want to jinx it.

But today I went to the license bureau and picked up my new plates.

They say "VSTROM".......

71 BMW R75
82 Honda FT500
98 Honda Shadow ACE
00 Kawasaki W650
03 DL1000 (sold due to bad hip joint)

GR WOLF is on the way. The old BMW and Yamaha were MERLIN and MAGIC. Having VSTROM available is something.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

You can put that many letters on a motorcycle plate? In my state the limit is 4 letters for motorcycles.

Indiana doesn't have custom MC plates (that I know of) but I did order a personalized german plate for my new TT. It says STROMTRPR (9 letter limit). Should be on the TT in a few weeks.

Missouri allows as many as six letters/numbers on a motorcycle plate. I think Kansas allows even more. You'll notice there's no hyphen in my VSTROM.

I tried to get W650 or MY650 for the W650. Those were taken.....but VSTROM wasn't. Curious, isn't it?
