You can get smaller ones - the bike mags sometimes give them away.Or...you can get a new plate made up with the little sticker thing already on.

I never have

I agree with Gibbo. It's not necessary, in Europe at least.

GB sticker: UK registered vehicles displaying Euro-plates (circle of 12 stars above the national identifier on blue background) no longer need a GB sticker when driving in European Union countries

Taken from this site, appears to have a lot of info available

Also agree with Gibbo, it's never been an issueI have put stickers on panniers and/or top boxes before, can't be fagged with one on the bike itselfIt's a bit like spare bulbs - you're never* going to get checked*usual disclaimers apply - the word "never" is used for dramatic effect as a substitue for "extremely unlikely to" which is, after all, a little wishy washy

In my case the bike is well suited to carrying one and they never knew at Easter But I will ask a mate who does a Euro trip almost every year and is well aware of what is/isn't needed

I have generally not worried about the sticker thing until Ride gace away a small sticker and onto the top box it went. Halfords sell smaller stickers and small plastic plates with GB on them.As for warning triangles? Well our lad modified one so that it folds up long and flat & it fits into tent bag or top box.light bulbs are useful (!) Hein Gerrike (sp) do a tidy blue polystyrene box of them and fuses etc that slots neatly under the saddle of the RS. An orange coloured indicator bulb will help greatly if you drop the bike and break the indicator lens.Rubber gloves should be carried in Germany (apparently) for helping at the scene of an accident! Or so I have been told...
