That's correct it's so we can have the bike on the road by law ( registration including stamp dutys that we pay each year to drive or ride our cars or bikes in Australia )

Sounds like you get fleeced?
So do we in the UK, 拢85/year road tax for the SS, mot for vehicles over 3 years old, congestion charges, approx 拢1.15/litre petrol, how much of that is tax, then of course we have the overpriced insurance.:crying:

Yearly registration, yes. Taxes and inspections, no.
Most states or counties charge property tax on certain vehicles, some only on vehicles worth over a certain amount, called a luxury tax. I know someone who pays around $8k a year in property tax for a very high end corvette.

Most states require emissions inspections. Several states in the north east require this and an inspection to make sure the car is road worthy where they check brakes, lights, horn, etc. Where I live, both inspections are combined. If you live in California, I'm surprised they dont inspect the cars there considering how overly regulated and taxed the state is.

In California, motorcycles are exempt from the biennial emission control check due to the relative small number on the road vs. cars and trucks. The luxury tax (which only included cars and motorcycles priced above $35k) went into effect in 1990 but was repealed in 2002. Registration fees, which I suppose are the same thing as taxes, are broken down as follows:
CHP 25.7%
DMV 13.9%
State highways (Caltrans) 13.0%
Air Resources Board 1.7%
Other state agencies 4.3%
State General Fund 0.7%

An overall vehicle safety inspection is not required for automobiles or motorcycles.
For the record, the first year registration for my 'S' was $189. That number decreases by a small percentage with each year of ownership.

D.amn I pay $25 every 4 years to renew my registration. I guess that's how California makes up for it. I also live in an auto property tax exempt area but I still have to pay tax on the purchase, which is 10%.

Here in E TN, we have tax on the purchase, but we have tag registration annually at a cost of ~$55US. No vehicle emissions check, or anything like that, though.

Here in CT - bikes are charged 6.5% of the sale price, plus registration $150 and town taxes mil rate per thousand ($40 per thousand of value annually). Unless you trip the luxury tax limit which is a 10% tax at the purchase price. Every state and town is different. I saved $16K registering my boat at my house in RI. With the 16K savings, my SSs is free.
