my bike costs 48 quid to tax, daughters car costs 25 quid, how does that work? i know they allegedly base it on emissions but surely a car usesmore road, than any bike or have i missed something here.
And how can this be right

and 48 quids for six months, her 25 quid is for the year,
did you know that 1 70s machine has the same emission output as 100 new machines" />..............when they work.......
I just taxed my bike, too.
Nearly £80 for the year, but my car is £30 a year.
In my case the car is a lot cheaper to run. It does 70 to the gallon, although it is the World's most sensible and boring car and sounds like a small electric sewing machine. But it has room to shove a bale of straw and a couple of sacks of feed in the back and it has a CD player, so if I do have to use it at least I'm not spending much on it and I get to sing a lot.
Unlike the Striple. Today I have used £20 of petrol, scrubbing in a new front tyre. I shall fill it again for tomorrows ride out and then again to do the commute for a few days. I never complain about how much I use in it. The more I use the more fun I'm having.
I do think the difference in price is too extreme. I hate paying so much to tax the bike.
