I wonder if the engineers at HD
have ever tried to screw an Italian plate on the license plate mount they ship with the bike to Italy!
It simply... too short!!!!!
I've checked with others Harley's imported to Italy and ALL plates are bent, curved to fit the mount.
In some cases (and it's MY case...) the plate bends outside and the vibrations have slowly ripped the upper left corner and almost ripped the right upper one!
Moreover, since the bending of the plate, at night only the upper part is enlightened from the lamp above (this could be useful
but hope not to meet a fussy officer!)
I should ask for a plate replacement, but it's an expensive and annoying bureaucratic process: the screws on the bottom side are well tightened and I won't lose the plate... hopefully!
