nope u need 2 plates in us but i refuse to ruin the look of the car with a stupid front plate
I realize this post was a while ago but I just wanted to correct you. It depends on what state you are in. Here in Michigan you only have 1 license plate on the back. You don't get one for the front.

Knowing you posted this when you still lived in Illinois you should be happy to see that Florida doesn't require a front license plate either. :P

On topic though, I recently purchased a 2014 Kawasaki Ninja 300 as my first bike.





Aside from being a blast to ride, the thing is awesome on gas too, getting almost 70mpg. It will save me a lot of gas money going to school and work. The insurance is also surprisingly cheap, I'm only paying about $45/month, which is less than half of what I pay for my car.
I just wish I lived further south so I could ride it for a larger portion of the year. My car is a 2001 Ford Taurus if I never posted it before.

lolz. buying a gixxer as your first bike typically ends up with you on the pavement and a hole in your wallet for repairs and medical bills. :P
The 300 is a great bike to start on and resells for almost as much as you buy it for. In a year or 2 I'll sell it and get something bigger.

Boojaa! As I earlier posted I was bout to change car in the winter and also managed to find new one. Here's my 'new' baby! 2.0T Gasolin, manual and quattro! Interior is grey/black leather with multifunction steering wheel. Only thing I need is OEM navigation system to central console.

Just realized I never formally introduced mine. It's funny, at the beginning of this thread, I knew next to nothing about engine repairs or automotive work and here I am having a pretty decent tool collection for a DIY'er and I've been in just about every nook and cranny of my affectionately named 'Blue Bomb':

The most recent surgery I did on her:

I have more money into her than she's worth and she's not perfect but she's mine and 100% paid for. Never let me down, even when she's throwing a fit.

A quick list of the things I've done;
