Motorcycle registration to increase

I would be interested to hear what others have to pay for registration of their bike for a year. In NZ it has just been proposed to increase the ACC(accident compensation levy) part of registration. For motorcycles over 600cc rating they say it will be an increase of $500 meaning that to register my versys next year will cost over $700.

Ohio costs me $42. What does the government do with the ACC $500? Is that accident insurance or part of the national health system?

MI is $23, but there's a Catastrophic Claims fund tacked on every insurance policy. It varies from year to year, but was about $100 this year.

I wonder if these Catastrophic Claims costs and ACC fees are levied against Automobile drivers considering the average catastrophic claim for a motorcylcist is probably a helluva lot less than what it costs to treat non life-threatening injuries in Automobile accidents annually. Not to mention there are a lot less motorcyclists on the road and the number one cause of motorcycle wrecks is CAGERS failing to yield right-of-way. Grr...

Here, a motorcyclist can only collect if he's had contact with a car. No single vehicle accidents. Car drivers can collect for either, but everyone pays the same fee.

Here in Colorado Gov. Ritter and his bud's in the House and Senate have dramatically raised about every fee the state charges. Here we get to vote on most tax increases but "fee's" are set by their vote only.
This latest increase in all license fee's is being called a "Safety Fee"! HA! I don't feel any safer, just more broke.

Been there, done that and got the tee-shirt! We had the same thing in quebec where the registration went up to 560$ for bikes over 400CC and is suppose to go up again to above $600. If you have a bike that is in the sport category the registration is above $1000.

All this to compensate for accident insurance included with the registration (keep in mind, we only ride 6 to 7 months of the year. And for the kicker, we cannot even ride in winter if the weather is nice since winter tires are mandatory by law between Dec 15th and March 15th and there is no such thing as winter tire for a motorcycle. Some guys got caugh this spring because they went out before March 15th ...150$ ticket.

Ah! Socialism and Redistribution of Wealth rears its ugly head again!

This is how the government (population, really) pays for cradle-to-grave care, even for those who choose not to work for a living.

the ACC covers all personal accident injuries of everyone in NZ and if you are employed then there is compensation for loss of earnings during recovery. All vechiles are levied and also there is an ACC componemt in the fuel price as well. All employers and emploees also pay into the ACC scheme but they now tell us it is making billions of $ loss so there needs to be increases and they say that motorcyclists are the biggest user of the fund.
