    Under an ACC on a license' scheme you would be asking the tens of thousands of license-holding but non-riding people to subsidise you.

    Fold the Motorcycle ACC Levy into Mandatory Insurance and then have the rates increase based on risk factors (speeding tickets, at fault crash claims, etc)

    'Mandatory Insurance'? Are you mad? You would have to be a former ANZ chief executive to afford what an insurance company would charge you.

    Would be cheaper than paying rego on 2+ bikes.

    No, just not ignoring the fact you make insurance compulsory & premiums go up.
    The price you're paying now will not be the price you pay should it be compulsory.
    Why you people keep asking to pay more for insurance is beyond me but ya'll really should stop it; the rest of us like to save a couple dollars where we can & I like the option to buy full coverage at half the cost of 3rd party compulsory

    If you didn't meet the risk factors (crashing, tickets, claims etc) then you wouldn't pay more, the people in that bracket would.

    Unhappy

    $100 is better than not $100, but I presently get a $50 rebate on my ride forever courses with protecta.

    I know they asked riders to come along on the 1st at 10am, do they actually need the numbers, surely there are plenty of riders in the city that are going.

    I've heard all this before... now, who was it?

    Cass... Cass... Cass-something...



    BTW, I have two bikes - a 400cc and a 650cc - and I'm quite happy to pay nearly $1000 per annum to have the benefits offered by ACC and I'm an OAP... no longer on the $80K annual salary!

    If you think private insurance is the way to go, do some serious costings for accident insurance and make sure you mention that you ride a motorbike... and be sitting down when you read the estimate.

    I took a ride down to the steps of Parlymint today to see what all fuss was about. Listened to the Gubbermint for about 10 mins.

    It was mostly attended by a sea of bright yellow high viz instructors, sort of like preaching to the converted. I think there were three of us that bothered to come listen that weren't professional trainers or Police.

    My thoughts: I gotta pay rego and I was thinking I would do at least one course at some point. So why not.....Its a bonus really.

    I went down just using today as an excuse to go for a ride, down the Wairarapa, Remutakas, Wgtn city, Kapiti, Saddle Rd to home. Bit chilly and windy but a good day out and made a couple new interesting biker friends along the way that share a love of good coffee.

    Thats all
