    Where can I find this?

    Been searching all over the place for a license plate mount like this. Every search I do yields the side mounts - I want it directly mounted behind the tire like this. Need it because my tail and fender are going to be smaller. That and the mount looks pretty slick.

    Well that's one way to find out fuel light and reserve don't work.

    Just hanging out on a country road waiting for the wife to bring me fuel. PO told me fuel light was dim but didn't say that the fuel light just didn't work AT ALL and neither does the reserve switch.
