Nice thread, so much is area-centric. I have run my plate vertical and curved on my ZX-10 for 10 years now. Have been pulled over probably 20 times in this period and the plate has never been an issue. Only once was it commented on by US border guards when i was coming back into WA, the guy asked, is that even legal? I told him I had had it that way for years (true) and never had any issues. He shrugged and let me through.

Last 2 times I was lit up by WSP for doing triple digits, I was let go with a verbal warning.
3 factors: Pulling over immediately, Gray hair, and a Law Enforcement Memorial plate may have played a part.

Your results may vary.

The plate on my S1000RR is a little more hidden than yours, also mainly to avoid the I-405 toll lane fiasco.

The plate position on my FZ-07 also has been modified for the same reason. Got pulled over earlier this year getting onto I-405 by my neighborhood (WDOT changed HOV lane into bus only in late summer). WSP officer gave me a verbal warning about the now bus only lane restriction and also mentioned that my plate should be mounted vertically.

I've run mine vertically for the last year and haven't had any issues. Toll cameras seems to have difficulty with vertical plates, too.

It does tend to get beat to shit by rocks when the bike is in offroad mode though.
