The states will get their money one way or the other; it is unfortunate, but just how the system works.

If you have to do that for $55 what should we have to do in California for what we have to pay?

Re: N.J. people bend over and spread em...

Yeah, Abate is fighting that. The mc registration increase is buried within a long bill...and it specifically targets motorcyclists, as no other type of vehicle is seeing that much of an increase. They figure they can get away with it because we're a minority population. Could you imaging the uproar if they tried to double car registrations? They hope it will quietly slip through, and they're probably right. Pisses me off. That and the fact that they are doing away with the free, state run MSF classes.

Re: N.J. people bend over and spread em...

ATTENTION NJ FOLKS:

We can fight this, probably successfully. Go to: ABATE of the Garden State - A New Jersey Motorcycle Alliance
Print out one of the letters and sign it, and MAIL IT, yes with a stamp, email will NOT cut it, to:
Steven E. Robertson
Director, Legal and Regulatory Affairs
New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission
225 East State Street
P.O. Box 162
Trenton, NJ 08666-0162

My letter is going in the mail tomorrow. DO IT NOW. We CAN make a difference. If this passes, my registration, for example, will go from ~$31 per year to well over a hundred bucks. Not acceptable. They are singling out motorcyclists by sticking this piece of legislation towards the end of a 20 page document, hoping it will just go through with the rest of the stuff. Don't let it happen.

Excellent. Many legislators also feel this is unfair. Hopefully we can thwart this bullshit.
