 :745:  Point taken!  Guess I should clarify that.  When my motorcycle goes completely dead and I can't afford another one of any kind!  :821:

New Jersey USA here, annual MC registration is $65 plus .48 per gallon State road tax.

Contrast that with $25 annual registration for  Mini Cooper or $85 for Chevrolet pickup.

On the plus side motorcycles are exempt from any form of annual inspection.

Here in Alberta, Canada I pay $70 per year.  But I am allowed to let it expire without penalty and have the fee pro-rated.  I am required to renew in September (dependent on you last name, mine starts with "F" so I renew in September)  So I let it lapse since it starts to snow sometimes in early October. So I usually pay about $35/year.
We also have a high tax on fuel here as well.  Currently, we are paying about $0.95/litre, but half of that is tax.
