My suggestion is, get familiar with how they judge the speed in the videos. Maybe it is not worth blurring the plates, but speedo instead. Should be easier. Also check if your software allows object tracking with blurring, should also make it a bit easier.
In the end, anyone can end up in someones dashcam and still get the fine.
Well its not just the speed. It can be lane splits. Can be revving the bike to hard for nothing. Can be passing a car, it can even be leaning too far in a corner that they can fine you with reckless driving etc. Its all up to the mood of the cop

Not here in holland, if they see you on video you ride 170km/h and have your numberplate. They can just send the ticket to your home.
Except Boef (i think it was) that normally doesn't happen.
More than enough "illegal" stuff online, unfined.
Check Jur or wheelietime for example.

Boef was a example figure, and he was stupid enough to share it on his personal (and open) social media.
So that was to easy not to fine.
Other then that, they aren't going to find some small @ss youtube channel and spend hours of work into finding illegal stuff and trying to puzzle out how to fine it. ;)

I try and stay in the speed limit most of the time, and on my bike it is so easy to see speed on camera the damn numbers are huge, which is good for quick peeks. Kinda BS that they can ticket you for leaning. Do you know that you were leaning at an angle of 32 degrees and the law states that 33 is the limit. Sorry but I have to give you a 1 degree lean ticket and you will probably lose your license for a year as the law states one year per lean angle degree. But officer I was only going 30 in a 35. Sorry Law is the Law, get in the back of the squad car!

Man, this is one of the first features I looked for when starting my channel. Any way to anonymize myself. Blurring plates was one of the first tests I did in Resolve when I downloaded it - and it's super easy now to blur a plate through a whole scene.

I recently had a video that took 2.5 hours to blur just plates LOL ... oops. Now I'm on the lookout for a product I can slap onto all my license plates before filming, and remove them after filming, so I won't have to go through that crap again!

Do you mean you want to ride around with covered license plates? That could get you way more unwanted attention.

No, sorry - only for static shots. I do some product reviews, and I end up walking between my truck, my wife's car, and my bikes, and it would be nice to just slap some covers on the plates while they're parked during filming.

Then the easiest is to have some not too terrible looking rag, that you can just hang over the plate.
If you want to be more fancy, put some magnets with glued on filts, to a sheet of cardboard or plastic, where you can print on your channel logo. Test first that plates in your area are made out of metal, that interacts with magnets

I use premier pro and use a blur mask or a clip art to cover the plate if wanted, then use key frame tracking to get the mask to track on the numberplate.
It can be time consuming as it will occasionally loose the track and you have to adapt manually.

Key frame tracking works for me sometimes. Depends on the lighting of the video and how stable the license plates are in the shot. If the bikes are all over the place you have to do a lot of custom keyframing to keep the blur over the license plates.
