Unhappy 1 holes under license plate....what for?

Hi there!

I'm the proud new owner of a 2004 K1200RS....love the bike!!!!
I bought it used and noticed that above the rear reflector, under the license plate, there are two vertical holes, as if missing a reflector, logo or something.....
Can anyone tell me what's missing?
I've seen countless photos of K1200RSs and all of them show the two empty holes.....

Lots of folks mount a BMW roundel there. I didn't feel like paying to advertise for BMW, so I just leave it open. Besides, my auxilliary tail-light covers them a bit.

I think they are for the large European license plates. In the States, most people put a BMW roundel there as was mentioned.

Hole

I use it to stick my lit cigarette in when I'm stopped for a break in front of a non-smoking bar, only in the pussy states that don't let you smoke of course.
