Does not matter how, just mounted. Zip ties are legal.
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.
