Lets see your undertails!

I want to get rid of the monstrosity of a rear fender, but can't find a solution. There was one guy on the greenspun forums who had taken his off, and just bent his plate and stuck it in the odd shaped hole. Looked OK, sans the bent plate and the fact behind the plate, there was the hole. I liked the clean look of nothing there though.

I like the look of the rear blinkers...well, compared to jap bikes as they're not huge and ugly looking. So I may keep the rear blinkers, but I definitly want to get rid of the fender, and if it looks clean enough, I may just do the Pirates liar conversion, or the conversion on eBay where it uses the existing taillights, as I'm not 100% a fan of the LEDs in the holes. On an F4 considering there's the 4 exhaust tips, it matches it better, on the Brutale it may look a bit busy....

I just wanna see what everybody else has, and some pics!!!!

I know this is a Brutale thread, but I thought you might like to see these anyway. I got the carbon licence plate holder from my dealer. He'd been offered it by a guy who was selling his carbon parts and I got it for £50. The problem here is that licence plates have to be quite large by law. The police come down hard on you if you are caught with an undersized plate. I think it's to give the speed cameras an easier time!! I would like to go the route of having LED indicators in the tail vents at some stage, but I think that's technically illegal here too.

I think the carbon ones are OK, but I think it's only because it's made of carbon
If it were plastic, I don't think many would buy it....

I was looking at the one Pro Italia sells, but it too looks like it leaves a hole/doesn't fill in the stock space completely....

That looks great...we in Australia would be pulled over so quickly it not true!
We can get away with small plates, but not plates fixed so far into the tail, but yours looks really good!!

Same here Graham. If I had a plate that size and in that position, PC Plod would think it was his birthday if he saw me riding around. £60 fine and 3 points on the licence (Ker-ching!!!)
