    Thought I'd do rego for the bike for Summer, just the 3 mths I usually do.

    The sticker arrived today and I happened to look at the breakdown of costs.

    3mths (1000cc bike) $133 or there abouts ?

    ACC component $99 fucking dollars !!!!!!! I will say no more !

    Cheap, you can ride every day for 3 months without a care in the world about costs in the event of an accident and you if working still receive

    and income.

    However if you only ride them from time to time like I do its not ACC's fault I don't get my moneys worth.

    I've had instances where I've registered for 3 months and not used bike at all.

    Saying that I keep my Classic bikes registered all the time as only $50 a year, and a 74 BMW is a good daily rider.

    ( takes tongue out of cheek)

    Seriously though, in 2003 I took a bike and a Kombi van to Ireland for a couple of years and it was 6 months before I could even get it past customs and legal and that was only paperwork. Was about 1000 Euros a year for insurance on the Kombi and 200 on the BSA Lighting.

    The current motorcycle levies cover less than 22% of the full cost of motorcycle injuries. Other Motor Vehicle levies pay for the rest of the cost.

    On 2016 figures, ACC was charging motorcyclists $27 million. Other vehicle owners will cross-subsidise motorcycle owners by $87 million.

    Payed for the time I was T-Boned by a car pulling out of an industrial drive way in a 50k erea and had my leg broken at 80km on a brand new bike. Big red/white bike with fairing hadlight and indidicators as running lights. All the other times I've had bike related "events" is just dust myself off, pick up the bike and carry on.

    Really? I bet you'll have plenty more to say.

    Justifiably. It's a controversial topic. Thing is, the cold, hard financial facts get lost in the emotive discussion.

    Meanwhile Horse & cyclist levies cover less than 1% of the full cost of their injuries.
    ACC needs to be removed as an individual component & just part of GST; it's pretty much the reason we have GST in the 1st place. Then Everyone pays, everyone gets.

    Horse shit spread across the road at Mapua was the cause of my first off. Nice slide under a hedge.

    $400 a year for personal accident cover on a large motorcycle isn't too bad when you think about it. My issue is the way it is collected.
