In CA there actually is a requirement for a front license plate -for cars-, they just hardly check at that. And red light cameras take photo's from multiple sides at the same time here actually. From the rear and from the front, sometimes even timelapse (damhik)
Take it without a grain of salt. It fits perfectly fine and rides well. Literally the only thing you may want to do is relocate or remove the little plastic brake hose guide on the right side.
