Hell I never even saw the cop, We were just cruisin as it was wet and always busy thru there. We were splitting lanes though!

At the light, I was telling you he was behind us,and I could tell I he was gonna stop me, I didn't know if he could hear me though.

When I got my similar ticket a few years back, it was pretty much the same thing.  The cop just pulled up behind me at a stop light, then pulled me over.  I was nothing but nice, but got the fixit ticket anyway.  But it was only a fixit ticket, so no huge deal.

I find it very hard to believe that someone could be pulled over multiple times, without a plate, and not get a ticket.

"Attached to the rear" is very vague, especially motorcycles that don't have a large flat surface on the back like a car. The rule most people go by is that it be visible and readable from the rear. 99% of the time a cop that couldn't see a plate like this would fall in behind and then see it and not bother you. It's that 1% that just want to be dicks. Sounds like this guy just doesn't like sportbikes "since some of you guys like to take off on us."

Leave it as is and go get it signed off. Most places will be ok with it like it is.
