    Effective, simple, and probably the least amount of time and effort for those who actually wish to make a difference.

    Just a thought.
    That has a better chance of getting attention than any other ideas on this thread. Good luck getting EVERY motorcyclist to do it though. It won't work if you can't achieve that.

    My bikes are my only transport. I commute every day around central Auckland, and also do a little riding as part of my job. Since the bikoi my regos have been on hold (2 bikes), it's my daily protest. If you keep your eyes open the police shouldn't be an issue, there are only something like 8,000 sworn officers for the whole of NZ and they aren't all on duty at once. Even if you do get pulled over once or twice you are probably still going to be ahead of the game financially (particularly if you have multiple bikes or higher cc bikes).

    ACC is "No fault" insurance ... who is at fault in an accident is irrelevant to claim compensation. But the "Risk" of serious injury (or worse) after hitting wandering stock is greater ... riding a motorcycle

    Because ... Mountain bikes (and bycycles), Skis, snowboards, rollerskates and skateboards are not required to be registered.

    Perhaps they should be ... it would be easy then to add a levy to them then. But for the moment ... they can't and don't.

    Hardly a protest if no-one notices.

    Now, if we ALL turned up to parliament and made a bonfire of our rego labels then that would be a protest.

    Share this around and get it out there the more that get there the better so get out from behind your key boards and make a stand against discrimination against motorcyclist.
    same as 2009 behave and dont make us look like what they are portraying us as.
    yes we are going to make a stand,yes we are going to be loud,no we are not parking at west pac stadium we are going to parliament.

    On the 1st July 2015 changes made by the ACC Corporation and sanctioned by the Minister for ACC, will take effect.

    Minister for ACC 5th August 2014:

    “Vehicle levies will be based on safety ratings from next year, meaning those who drive safer cars will pay less, while employers will also receive a slight cut. Motorcycle and moped levies will remain the same.”

    These changes show a clear and indisputable case of discrimination against Motorcyclists.

    Discrimination is described in the Oxford Dictionary as the following:

    “noun: The unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people"


    This announcement by the Minister for ACC makes it very clear that the safety of the vehicle is more important than the skill level of the operator of the vehicle. It is the New Zealand Motorcycling Community’s stance that this regime is fundamentally flawed.

    Example: a learner driver of a car can pass the license theory test and then with an appropriate passenger beside them, as prescribed by the current Graduated Driving Training Legislation, drive a 1000hp car! That learner would have no experience with that sort of vehicle yet, it is legal.

    Before a learner Motorcyclist can even sit the learner’s theory test they must pass a course that proves they have the basic handling skills required for a Motorcycle. This includes correct braking techniques, throttle control and emergency situations. That person must not only pass the course, they must also provide proof of this to the testing station when booking for the theory test. Furthermore, upon obtaining their permit to ride a motorcycle on the roads of New Zealand, they are then restricted to a LAMS approved motorcycle until they receive their full NZ motorcycle license. Yet despite this level of training, the Government has allowed the Minister for ACC to propagate what can only be described as blatant discrimination against the minority group that are Motorcyclists in New Zealand. This needs to change!

    As a Motorcycling Community we have seen no proof offered, or even shown as considered, that takes into account the advances in motorcycle safety equipment from the manufacturers. Modern motorcycles often come with ABS, Traction Control, Multiple Power Modes for different weather and road conditions and improved suspension. On top of this, there is no consideration for the fact that the majority of riders wear far more safety gear than is required by law (the law states only a Snell or Dot approved helmet is required), and the extra training that a number of riders undertake after they get their license.

    By saying that the vehicle (car) is safer because it has certain features, yet ignoring the driver education and training, does nothing but perpetuate the discrimination of the minority, which in this case is the motorcyclists of New Zealand.



    This discrimination against motorcyclists needs to stop now. All we are asking for as a Motorcycling Community is to be treated, Fairly, Equitably and with Respect.

    This +1


    Here's a thought-

    number of reg motorcyclist - 50k ish

    Number of NZ police - 16k ish

    Number of parliments/Beehive's - 1!

    So if just HALF of us turn up with the attitude of "take from us...and we take from you!"...and we TAKE there little beehive for "negotiations"...exactly WHO could stop us?



    ...Sit in anyone?


    *yes!...all figures have been roughly made up...fuck knows what the actual figures are lol(use google thingy!)...but I do know we grossly out number ANY group that could possibly be dumb enough to "try" and stop such an action
