Nicely done but I have a question. How do you propose to illuminate the plate after dark ?? Or am I missing something here.

There is a small (will be) LED cluster under the tail rack..........This will shine down perfectly on the plate

Mine has been docked from Day 12 and ridden in the rain many miles,

No problem with the rain on mine, but your aerodynamics may differ.

I agree on the rain issue. Just got back from a trip in pouring rain for hours. No issues with water being thrown up in a "rooster tail"...........I could tell no difference from stock as to my gear being any more wet...........

Now, riding behind me, that might be another story, but if its affecting you, you're riding too close!
