I guess it's that way to ensure additional cashflow from citizens to the state. And that is due to the enhanced accuracy of our stationary speed cameras when reading oversized license plates - let there be rain, fog or you travelling at at least 100km/h too fast 😂

That's a whole lot of eye candy.
If the things you own end up owning you, it's better to be owned by some cool things.

Don't get me wrong. Oette's bike is a looker.  I'm just looking to see if there's some friendly competition for it.
