    I spent a fair amount of time trying to find a good British expression to put on my 2003 Bonneville T100. Lets post those uniquely British vanity plates!

    TON UP was taken here in Nevada(Vegas) so I came up with a few that were available such as PUNTER, BUGGAH(Bugger was taken),BAGSY, BARMY, SHAGGR, and 2 SHAG.

    But I finally went with...

    Nice. I just ordered a Union Jack sticker for my helmet. I think they are making us virtual expats, Eli.:)

    Those god damned limeys stole my heart with my '75 MGB, '74 TR-6 and eventually Mini Cooper S convertible...I still carry emotional scars from dealing with Lucas and Stromberg. It was inevitable that I'd end up with a Brit Bike!

    Wow! Had no idea. Here it was $40 for the first year and then $20 every year after until I retire it then I get to keep it for my wall collection.

    Late 60s/early 70s that was available as a poster. Had one on my wall at college along with its mate 'puke', whilst a mate had 'oink' which featured a walrus if memory serves.:grinning:

    In the 80s there was 66 0K YA (660 KYA) and BEN50N (BEN 50N) regularly to be seen in and around Harrogate. If memory serves, the first one was on a Jag and the second one was on a BMW.
    Harrogate was far too posh for a Pontefract lad like me!! I escaped without too much damage being done to me!:relieved:

    Got one on the s4 monster which is S40 DUC
    And one on the speed triple which is T111 SPD
    Not worth the hassle of selling for less than a monkey each so I suppose I'll keep them

    Yeah mate the monster would have been better as S4 DUC being an S4 model but it's close although a limited market
    Would really like a grand for the T111 SPD but I am as greedy as a pig :joy::joy:

    I seen a KS regular plate that was ### FUK, those numbers could be fun if you got the right ones or even close. I got ### MUG.

    Best UK plate I have ever seen was on an SL Merc back in the 80s driven by a good-looking blonde:

    Also in the 80's I saw a Rolls Royce parked outside Harrods. CLA 55. Bit ostentatious if you ask me, probably new money...

    You Europeans are lucky to have enough digits, as for as I know 7 digits is the max in the US.
