Are you superstitious about the 13 plate?

There is talk within the motorcycle industry that new bike sales could drop with the introduction of the new 13 registration plates due to peoples' superstitions. Is the inclusion of a 13 on a registration plate enough to put you off buying a new bike, or indeed has it already? Place your vote and don't forget to comment - your thoughts...

13 plate - yes please

I'm another of the "born on Friday 13th" brigade.  I've always felt I could never afford to be superstitious.  Of course that gives me an edge over people who are superstitious whenever it's an issue.  Knowing that gives me confidence, so I rather like a 13 around somewhere. I passed my under-grad degree and my post-grad degree on 13th's.  I have got jobs at interviews on 13th's 4 times, each one a promotion.  I moved into my current house on a 13th.  I have had a couple of downers - or not:  for example, I failed to get one job on a 13th, but it was at Stafford Hospital!  I'm planning to buy a BMW S1000RR sometime in the next couple of months.  If I get a new one it will have 13 in the plate automatically and I'll be happy.  If it's a low mileage used one, I'll get a private plate with 13 and my initials.  I might just do that anyway!
