Why do we do this? Vehicle cloning? I suppose when I was in the UK I could buy a number plate from most garages/shops that made them and they were a plenty. Is this still the case or has this procedure changed? Here in Australia they're made in WA to order, when you register your car and can only be purchased through the registrar of motor vehicles. So false plates here are rarer but not impossible.

Not sure how I feel overall but consider this point and counterpoint...

Dang internet invading all our privacy!

But then again, all it takes is a local person recognizing the motovlogger to make the secret identity public.

I think it has more to do with the "we might be doing illegal things and dont want some random internet troll to call the police and give them the video and license plate."
I wasn't thinking along them lines, I'm a good boy haha - ish.....

I was more thinking along the lines of privacy when I asked the question, not giving much thought to illegal riding habits. In my crazy days, I would definitely have been better off without any number plate at all. I weren't for stopping if I could help it, until I got to my intended brew stop ;-)

I've just got a cool number plate allocated to my bike and was wondering if there was any risk to posting pics/showing it on my social media.

Depends on your threshold for risk...

Crazy ex lovers?
Anyone with a grudge?
Driving issues?
Playing hookie from work?

On so on...

if you arent being filmed doing something you'll regret if someone saw it, then nah. Bluring while filming is one thing, but anyone on the street can still see your plates and call in anything. As they said above, we all have our risk thresholds.

Just remember, anything that goes on the internet stays on the internet.... forever...

...and unfortunately there will always be people looking for information to exploit

Agreed, take a day off from work to go take a long needed ride. Bam, no job!
