Anything carried in wallets is likely to be stolen.
Use multiple data sources e.g. sealed capsules attached to bike jacket, dogtags etc. as well.
I have multiple laminated cards with all data sealed in, including a copy of my Medical Aid card. 
They have no inherent commercial or scrap value, so it's pointless to steal them.
I have one in my jacket pocket, one in my pants pocket and one in my man-bag/wallet.
You can also make tags to wear around your neck like dogtags.

Some indicators (if they are even used) are terrible these days and guys spray them dark inside with rattlecan etc  :-\  Also at warp speed even good ones are not that visible.

I have my ID, Drivers licence, medical aid & think bike membrship(with allergies, blood group & previous injuries) in top pocket of my jacket, was funny seeing the reaction from guys a run recently when I told them for in case of incident, all my regular riding buddies know where my info is.

Have been thinking of getting some info stuck/painted onto my helmet as well, like when I was doing enduros, had name, blood group & allergies on the helmet.

Speed kills. by the look of the damage that did not happen at 60, 80 or even 100Km/h. Joh dis heavy.
But for me, it's like a night out with a porn star, every time I press that starter button. Schneller! Schneller! Tiefer! Ja, ich bin geil! Ich komme!  >:D

I'm gonna be slightly insensitive in my comment, but the bike probably didn't have any numberplate on it for one reason - dodging the authorities.

On a superbike that probably means going very fast without wanting to be caught.

As sad as this is, it would be probable that he at some point boasted to his friends on how fast he can go and how many toll gates he shot and speed cameras he went through at speed without being caught.

I'm not making this off lightly, I am just saying what it looks like on the surface.

That bike couldn't be in such a state by going the legal speed limit (unless it was a head-on with someone coming from the front that doesn't look like it was in this case)

:(

After our Dec Wildt 3 fences ride we had some milkshakes at the Total near the Akwarium and a guy there told us he saw a fatal accident at Necsa, so it seems "Harties" claimed 2 lives this week-end. The guys ride these high powered superbikes and go hopelessly too fast for their abilities, these missiles go like crazy, I know!
Always carry identification, but sometimes that does not help either, some years ago a friend of mine got killed on the highway and his wife only found him a month later just days before they were going to give him a paupers burial in a black bag! He had a bunch of business cards and his ID book with him, police took it and never contacted anyone. They probably stole his jacket with all that info in. A private detective found his helmet on a shelf at a police station and his corpse in the morgue. Poor lady was a wreck!

Ek weet nie hoe werk dit in ander lande nie...maar wat skokkend is...is dat jy aan 'n tafel kan gaan sit...jou learners skryf....oor die straat stap en 'n fiets kan koop wat 300km/h of meer kan doen. Ja ek weet dis 'n onbegonne taak met ons regering etc maar surely moet jou basiese bike ry abilities darem getoets word.

Met 'n kar mag jy net saam met 'n persoon ry wat 'n vol lisensie het as jy net 'n learners het. Met 'n bike weet julle almal self...hier is vir jou 'n learners (jy kan padtekens lees en weet waar die flikkerligte sit....maar of jy 'n bike kan ry en jou eie lewe en ander onskuldige mense sin in gevaar kan sit....nee wat...dis nie vir ons belangrik nie) so nou loep ry jou in jou moer. Dis absurd.

Ek het lank superbike gery en ek het destyds stats gesien(en noodlottige ongelukke ook natuurlik)wat gewys het dat daar elke sondag ten minste een superbiker omkom in die JHB/Harties/Pretoria driehoek. Iemand het dit vroeer genoem...dis die weekend warriors wat net Sondag oggende ry en glad nie die skills het om so 'n masjien te hanteer nie.

Dis nie hoe vinnig jy afval nie....maar hoe vinnig jy stop nadat jy afgeval het.

RIP.

I agree - it is astounding that with a mere learners license you can go hop on a Busa etc and just wind it! There have been a few cases of school lighties with pocket rockets bought by divorced soccer momsies etc who have wyped themselves out properly !  :eek7: In the UK you have to hold the L license for a certain period of time, have a special numberplate and a red L on it so all know you are a potential road hazard.  :3some:  Nee fok - ride like lightening crash like thunder! Yes I do lightening sometimes but faark the older I get the more skei I get  ::)

S'true.
You passed a written test on road signs so now you can legally get on a 300km/h bike. I once stood in Honda Cayen and overheard a salesman not wanting to sell a superbike to a young lad because he only possessed a learners and the sales man's argument was that he did not think the lad could handle the bike and that it was to much motorcycle for him, then the lad made a scene and the DP stepped in and told him the same thing. I was very impressed by the whole thing.
Afterward I had a chat with the salesman and he told me that he sells any bike to any person but when he picks up that the buyer is going to kill himself by being "windgat" he will try his outmost best to steer him in a different direction WRT buying a smaller more controllable bike, and if all els fails not to get a sale at all.
But for me, it's like a night out with a porn star, every time I press that starter button. Schneller! Schneller! Tiefer! Ja, ich bin geil! Ich komme!  >:D

That takes cahoonies from the smous and the DP.

In my mind everyone that has had a car license for longer than 5 years should automatically qualify for the 'theory' side of the learners, then (before they are let loose on the road) you should go and do what is currently the license test on the bike size you intend to have a learners for (maybe under and over 500cc).

Lets face it - the current bike learners test in the enclosed area tests nothing apart from if you look like you have control of the bike.

So if the guy is happy there then you can get a learners to be let loose on the road, with a quick 'lets go ride in the traffic and see how you manage that' test to get your proper license.

More effort, but it is a bit ludicrous that a pimply faced 18 year old with a rich dad, no experience and too many raging hormones can get a learners, go to a bike shop, buy a Fireblade, R1 or GSXR (or 'Bussa for that matter) and be let loose on public roads.
