UPDATE - New Illinois Route 66 Motorcycle Plate - Holiday Special!

As you may have heard, new legislation was passed last year and was signed by the governor, but we need 200 advance signups before the plates can be issued. If you are a motorcyclist in the state of Illinois, we need your help to make this happen. Route 66 is a cultural icon that represents the spirit of America and reflects the modern expansion of transportation and commerce in our country. Purchase your Route 66 License Plate today and help support the legacy of this great old road. After all, Illinois is "where the road begins." 

For a very limited time, we are offering to pay the first $66 of your bike plate transfer fee - act now - offer good for a limited time only!
