    would be happy for the cost of regos to stay as they are. but if an increase MUST be done, then no more than $100, reguardless of type or cc size of bike.

    the really happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery when on a detour.

    something like this? I want the levy increase completely abolished, and will take part in any action to go one step furthur and get parity with other road users.

    a more even spread amoung each group who is involved in claiming.
    although it would be difficult to enforce, somehow involve those who are not, eg cyclists and boats etc.
    agree with above that cc size should not matter and a much lower hike is needed

    I must say my vote goes to scrapping the ACC levvies altogether and having a fuel tax. I feel that would be a lot fairer.Just my opinion mind you

    I'd be a little cautions stating "what we want" because they might just say "ok" and give it to us.

    Basically, we are haggling for the best deal we can get, and we might do a lot better than we think.

    You're talking my language mate. That's EXACTLY what I want. I'm okay with the earner levy staying but I think fuel tax is the only equitable way for motor vehicle users to support the motor vehicle fund.
    And I to my motorcycle parked like the soul of the junkyard. Restored, a bicycle fleshed with power, and tore off. Up Highway 106 continually drunk on the wind in my mouth. Wringing the handlebar for speed, wild to be wreckage forever.

    the problem (i see) with a fuel tax, is bikes use less fuel, so it would still create a division in levies generated from different road user groups, the should be only one acc levy amount, a road user charge, charged to every licensed person. Everyone pays an equal amount, regardless of risk, number of vehicles, and (most importantly) fault.

    Id prefer to see very low levies on everything car , truck , bike , camel , goat what ever you think they might levi us for.

    In saying that a levi on fuel is going to be a primary $$$ but also I think a levi as part of the drivers lience system would balance there argument on what if someone else operates said machine. This would cover people who choose to operate what ever lience class they hold and help to keep the Fuel Levi a bit lower how ever every class would have to carry a levi on it scaled down with more classes showing a longer education in road saftey as each class of lience is acheived in diffrent tests and trail periods.

    When someone has an accident without holding a Lience class for it of any level they should be prosicuted as the law currently operates anyway.
    Prolly sounds kinda rough but were are still trying to save lives and injury as well as save our pockets somehow.

    I dunno about anyone else, but what I want is ACC to be left in its original form to fulfill its original intentions - no fault principle intact. I do NOT want it to become a privatized insurance scheme. I do NOT want it to be forward funded either since this is in contravention of the original principles as well.

    If, to achieve this, levies must increase, then they must be increased across the board, so that we all pay equally.

    Having individual groups pay extra for this that or the other reason is pure bullshit.

    IMO.
