Did you know that in Quebec the cost to plate your bike is over $400? And next year the government plans to raise it to more than $500! This is not acceptable. What can we do about this ******* injustice??

Did you know!?

Move to the US...where your bike would cost you about $15 annually to register.

Apparently, that's the case in Nebraska, but it's higher in many other states. All states have a way of taxing you, some do it through income tax, some through sales tax, some through licensing fees, etc.
Washington, for example, has a sales tax, but no state income tax. Oregon has a state income tax, but no sales tax. Licensing in Oregon is considerably cheaper than Washington, but property tax is higher. In California, you get sales tax, state income tax, and high licensing fees.

In Iowa and Nebraska both (That I know of for sure), you pay a pretty high price for new, or near new vehicles, and it goes down a little annually. Once you hit the 15 to 20 year mark, you're down to $15 a year for cars, pickup trucks, vans, and motorcycles.

Yeah, but you get to ride 1/3 of the year for it. We are forced to ride 11-12 months of the year. So maybe that is the difference.

I just titled and tagged my GL1000 in GA and it was $42 total.
Tag alone will be about $14 next year.

In SD fees go down with age. The number of wheels and weight of the vehicle also effects the cost. I just got new tags for my wifes 04 Grand Cherokee ($60) and my 97 SE ($15).

No matter where you\'re at... there you are.

This is where I live.
