GB Sticker

You do not need a GB sticker if you have the Euro emblem on your number plate already, which most new number plates carry as standard.

If you do not have a Euro emblem, then put your GB sticker on the rear of the bike close to the number plate.  As you don't have panniers, then you will need to find some where on the rear of the bike to mount it.  If you have a rucksack or other luggage system, stick it to that

GB where?

In most European countries it is law to have a sticker with your country or origin on the rear of the bike/car next to the number plate. Normally you will have GB sticker on all new number plates anyway so thats all you need. But if you do not have one and get stopped then this will only aggrevate the situation and the police might start to examine your bike very closely for EU conformaty. Austria is very strong on this and the fines are high with possible impounding. Just make a small metal plate and mount it on that, you can take it off when you get home, do not put it on removable loose bags as it can get hidden or ripped off. The GB sticker has to meet a minimium size to be legal.

Ride asfe and legal then you are ridding relaxed.:ph43r:
