Yeah as far as I know zip tie to the grille is totally legal. Someone on here did say that plates have to be permanently mounted. Zip ties are legal here I know, I checked. I know someone who's had their plate zip tied to their grille for 3 years, no problems. I put it on there for her. We have rather picky police here, and I always run stuff by them (* Not complaining that they are picky. I would rather have them be picky on stuff- means they have nothing more pressing to do, which is a good thing).

According to the Nebraska State Patrol it just has to be attached to the front in a spot that is visible. Only the back one has to be lighted.

If I decide to use the bike rack I think I will do one of 2 things...

1. Mount a license plate holder to the bike rack that I can move the plate to when the rack is used.

2. Zip tie it to the grille - I don't like the look of this, but function over form rules here, in my opinion.

I would never put the plate on the dash, though I do know a number of people who do it regardless of legality.

Tired to mount the bike rack on the front for this weekend. I did not like the set up. So I left the bikes at home. At Mahoney State Park this weekend (awesome weekend and great camping facility) I saw a couple rigs with a 2" receiver hitch bolted to the back bumper and a bike rack pinned in the hitch.

Found a hitch like this at Cabela's here locally that has great reviews. Hoping to get one soon. I like the idea of the bikes on the back of the vehicle better than the front.

I have a receiver bike rack, works pretty good.

You can get something like this dual hitch extender so you can tow and carry the bike rack on the rear.

I thought about that if I had a receiver hitch on the back of the motor home. The hitch on the back is a 3500 lb tongue style hitch. Definitely a lot smaller than I was told that it was.

I checked out a lot of reviews online on a number of the bolt on receiver hitches and the one from Cabela's seems to have the best ratings. I went to the Cabela's here in La Vista with my daughter today and ordered one. They did not have any in stock, but I saved on shipping being able to ship to store. Luckily the store is only 6 miles away or so.

Brought the bike rack back home today too. Should have the hitch before our next planned trip camping.
