Did I miss something here?

In Louisiana,every motor vehicle must be state inspected(horn,lights,etc.).Including motorcycles.However the tag is double sided stamped and stuck to the inside of the windshield on cars.No such a place on the bike,so they let us keep it in a ziplock bag with the bike.

In California at George A.F.B.,My bike was tagged for a gate pass.This pass stuck to the same mount as you describe,however in Louisiana,the DODT tags are printed on the front and rear and cannot be stuck facing out.The glue is on the same side as the date stamp.I suppose a piece of plexiglass could be used so it ts visible to the Troopers,but everybody would complain that it reduces the cosmetic value of the bike or something like that.

I put my sticker on my clear wind deflector. The gate guards look down at it the same time they are checking your ID. Same could be done with state safety sticker.

When this sort of thing was a necessity, and I had to display both sticky front and sticky backed decals for entry to military reservations, I did what two of you suggested. I made the aluminum plate, and then riveted a plexiglass cover plate to it. Worked for both the State Inspection sticker, and the DOD stickers. When I needed to change the State sticker, I had to drill off the rivet heads and peal the old sticker off to put the new one on the inside of the plexi. It worked well for the six years I needed it. I had it clamped high up on the left front fork, with the plate sticking in between the forks.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey
