Push on to create Maine motorcycle specialty plate

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine — Backers of an effort to create the state’s first specialty license plate for motorcycles are stepping up efforts to collect the necessary signatures to make the plate a reality.

Supporters need commitments and $25 payments from a least 500 motorcycle owners by the time the state Legislature adjourns in mid-April to ensure the creation of a pink-ribbon, breast cancer specialty plate for motorcycles.

State Rep. and cancer survivor Meredith Strang Burgess says more than 15,000 of the plates have been issued for passenger vehicles since they went on sale in 2008, raising more than $400,000 for breast cancer research.

Online registration for the motorcycle plates can be made at
