Hello fellow motorcycle riders. Please review the following excert from http://www.riderripoff.com.au/
From July 1 motorbike and scooter riders have been hit with massive increases in their CTP Greenslip costs.
Riders of smaller bikes and scooters have been the most affected, with some owners reporting increases as high as 84%.
At the time of the changes, Labor said they would only add an additional $10 to the average CTP Greenslip.
But some riders are now being slugged $210 more than last year.
There is a petition organised by Andrew Stoner MP that one can "sign" online to voice your disagreement, at the above URL.
Also there is a rally of motorcyclists today outside the NSW Parliament organised by the Motorcycle Council of NSW if you so inclined. Details here: http://www.mccofnsw.org.au/a/311.html
Personally speaking, I only ride my bike a few times a year, so the thought of $700 or $800 plus Insurance, plus Rego is starting to make the cost of ownership of a motorcycle very unattractive.
