    oh my goodness ... it has been changed! :-s


    it was like this:

    and now it's this:
  5. good to see netriders posting on the comments section
  6. Well theres another reason im glad i dont live in NSW.
  7. if u ride a 600 to 750 its great living in nsw :)
  8. What the fark? Firstly, it should be 84.5%. Secondly, how 'authoritative' do you need to be to divide one number by another.
  9. dat's why I found it funny :D:rofl:
  10. Where are the new rates displayed?
  11. they aren't, that's part of the problem. No warning, no communication, just Labor shafting us one final time before they get voted out. It really is just a "screw you NSW" action.
  12. Correct me if I'm wrong, but in NSW, but isn't the greenslip insurance's purpose there to cover third parties that have been injured by the vehicle that is being insured? If so, then what is the justification for this increase. Are bike riders guilty of causing lots of injury to others?
  13. ive been asking the exact same question for years flux, still no answer yet

    nothing but greed
  14. Playing Devil's Advocate for a moment, I suppose their argument would be that we're subsidising protection for ourselves because motorcyclists are more likely to be injured in an accident.

    It's not that bikes are more likely to hurt 3rd parties. It's that we're more likely to be hurt by 3rd parties, and so we must be punished on behalf of everyone else because of our probabalistic skew.
  15. That is just sad :(

  17. I find it interesting that Harleys and super-tourers are more dangerous than any type of sports bike
