Re: Random gripes ....

Here, insurance and reg are different. My insurance for all three vehicles (full coverage) is $2,600/year.

Re: Random gripes ....

I pay 2800/yr for insurance. Rat bastards. 115/month on the car, and 20/month on the bike.

I was going thru progressive for both. As some of you know, I got a hefty speeding ticket last summer. When it came time to renew my car insurance, progressive jumped my price from 115 to 165 monthly. I promptly, and rather rudely told them to get fucked and switched to esurance which put me back down to 115. I'm from Michigan. Michigan's insurance laws (no fault, no medical services cost cap) make it one of the highest in the country.

Insurance is very high , though the actual reg is very low ... $44.25 , though I fail to see how they can charge you that much for a supersport regardless of age/rating statue of rider/owner !!!!
Well yes, there's the government's insurance due to no-fault here in Quebec. The government insurance is what pays for any personal injuries. It's actually a great system because it eliminates recreational suing altogether... which I believe is the national sport in the US

But you still aren't allowed to operate a car or bike without normal private insurance for public liability / property damage (minimum) and then it's up to you if you want collision, theft fire etc...

That's not so bad though. I had 3 cars and 2 bikes on my policy at one point with full coverage on 2 of the cars and it was only <$1100 for the year. Being old has to have SOME advantages.

But it's fucking CRAZY expensive for bikes because so many morons jump on sportbikes and wad themselves up. We have 100% free health care so squids cost taxpayers big time when guys like tater haul their busted ass to the ER. Then when they're healed-up, the government will PAY them for any permanent injuries / scars based on a fixed scale.

I got paid $10K in 1997 after a tankslapper threw me down at $140kms, AFTER a lengthy stay in the ICU, then downgraded to the trauma unit. So while it sucks, it's necessary. I probably cost the taxpayers $100-150K because I wasn't wearing gear

Hwy robbery ... it especially hurts me when I have a fleet of bikes , private vehicles AND work vehicles.

I spend around $600-800 in fuel a week ... the loan vehicles for the workshop is the worst/most costly

93 octane is around 3.60 something a gallon around here. It’s pretty high in my opinion I remember when gas was under a dollar a gallon
