For the bikers out there I once saw a bike with TTR10T on it for sale for 500 advertised in MCN, wished now I had bought it,

Seen COM1C in Blackpool, Tarbucks I believe as well as JOK1E

I personally wouldn't waste money on a personalised reg plate, but out of curiosity I looked on the DVLA website for my bike and there's hundreds of "GSX" registrations still available.

Sorry, when I said "waste my money" I just meant there's always something more important to have to spend it on! Smile Bills, repairs, the usual stuff. If the reg plate does its job I wouldn't get round to replacing it. Though the GSX on the bike would be good. I wouldn't bother on my other motor...

Private number plates are a waste of money. the only reason people have them is to be noticed and that for me does not say much about the person. they must feel inadequate to want to purchase one. Its ok to buy an expensive car but it really does make me sick seeing people who are so materialistic where buy they have to draw attention to themself with a number plate. There are so many people in this world who have nothing, no clothes, no food, no electricity to keep warm and i personally would get more satisfaction giving any spare money i had to less fortunate people than myself rather than spend it on something to try and gain some sort of status. When i see a person driving a car with a private plate and they make a mistake like cutting out in front of me or braking hard at lights e.t.c i think to myself. What an idiot spending money on a private plate and they cant even drive the bloody thing properly. james

Where's the "inadequacy" of owning a private plate? I don't think it is the status symbol it used to be, and plenty of inexpensive cars have private plates these days. It's just adding something a little personal to most people, such as their initials or whatever. A couple of hundred quid, maybe, for something that can be transferred from car to car through a person's life. You ain't gonna save the world by not having one...

Apart from some, like the examples we've seen in this topic, most personalised registrations are probably just a regular plate which happens to have the owner's initials. Some of those were probably acquired by chance in the normal course of buying a car, and transferred to subsequent cars, so may not have cost much at all.

I don't see how you can make any judgement on somebody's personality, motivation, or anything else simply on the basis of their number plate! Smile

There was one I noticed some years ago not far from my home: AUS10. It was on a Fiat 131, I think... Smile

Do I detect a bit of jealousy there James ? - I have my own plate because I work bloody hard and I can !! I also give money to several charities - SO THERE !!
