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.
We can fight this, probably successfully. Go to: ABATE of the Garden State - A New Jersey Motorcycle Alliance

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.
HGT I hope you printed your letter on your good stationary..,It doesnt look like theres to much interest on the other sites.Maybe if they see our watermarked stationary theyll look at it before throwing it in the trash.
