For both options, take a plastic 5 gallon bucket and trace the size of the plate on it. Now, taper the rectangle from the plate down to the width of the tip of the rear fender. You need to follow the curve of the bucket. Attach the plate to the fender with bolts or cotter pins (for quick detach).
Hazard this way if it doesn't have a break away, you could damn near fillet your leg in a bail out. I realized this and mounted the plate vertically. Just enough to be legal, if you dont shoot your mouth off to a cop you should be ok. And, in a bail out, it's no wider than the fender.
Another way I've seen that is even less legal is to mount the plate vertically UNDER the fender, just above the mud flap. Not visible with mud of course, but it may be just ehough to keep you legal.
Same note as "just enough to be legal" try a dental mirror taped to your hand guard or jammed in your grip.

And the bucket dosn't look bad either.

I got a license bracket from fourstrokesonly.com. It mounts to the three tail light attaching bolts under the tail light. It's aluminum and is up out of the way.
