    TW Vehicle Registration

    I just got the registration renewal in the mail and it finally broke the $100 mark -- now it costs $104. Back in 2009 when I bought this bike it cost $71.

    I have to thank Democraps in Sacramento -- especially our Governor Jerry Brown. He spends all the money and then complains we are broke and raises taxes. How about cutting spending? Jerry, ever think of that?
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    I have a few friends that think registration on fuel efficient vehicles like motorcycles and hybrids will see the biggest increase in registration since they'll pay less at the pump in taxes. Hope that's not the case since I have two street legal bikes. I hate Jerry Brown and California lawmakers. If I wasn't so deep in my job and family I'd leave California in a heartbeat.

    It is not California that is the problem. Actually quite a gorgeous state and great place to hang your hat. The problem as I see it is the same as here in NY, so many idiots who have the right to vote but don't know their ass from their elbow. I would be willing to bet that more than half of your most vocal voters could not name the Vice President of this country right now but they sure as hell hate Donald Trump. The solution is actually quite simple, quit voting for these liberal asshats and everything will be OK.

    In general every "YES" vote = more restrictions, more bureaucrats and more taxes.

    You are 100% correct if you mean every Yes vote for the same old idiots. It is not very likely that your state or mine will ever wake up and smell the stink of the $hit heads they elect. This is another pretty simple thing to do, just go back 30,40 or 50 years and determine what party has been most prevalent over those years and you will have the answer.

    "Liberal asshat" here. The VP is Mike Pence, and the registration fees go to many things including maintenance of the roads and bridges that you use every day.

    Welcome to the forum TWfox. Sorry if I or we might have poked a nerve but that argument is not going to cut it. Take a quick look at the tax you pay on every gallon of gas or oil you all buy that is supposed to go toward road and bridge maintenance and then multiply those taxes by the number of gallons you all out in Ca. buy and there is enough there to rebuild every freaking road in this country and a new Stairway to Heaven. Your state government just like mine here in NY is so bloated and dishonest you and I will never know half of the truth but they do have you believing. California does not own and never has drilled a single drop of oil from the ground yet they make more in taxes on every gallon of gas and oil than the oil company that did the work. No offence meant here but you should probably pull your head out of that drill hole and do a bit of research on where the money actually comes from and where it goes. Your politicians and mine have some of us baffled with their brilliance but I hopped on a much different train. We fought and won a war over this garbage way way back, "No Taxation Without Representation" or so we have been led to believe. A simple pack of smokes costs about a dollar to produce but by the time it gets in your pocket in NY City it is over $10, all taxes!

    For information purposes only. On our trip to Moab all the roads and rest stops in Utah were beautiful. On our way through California ALL the rest stops were closed for remodeling even ones that looked in perfect condidtion. Not one opened between Nevada and San Diego. The roads were in terrible shape. The CA taxes that are already on gasoline are for repairs and improvments where did that money go as someone already pointed out? And this is not counting federal gas taxes for interstate highways where did that go? Compare the population of CA to Utah and calculate the billions of gallons of gas sold and used in CA to Utah. Check out this article about CA gas taxes.

    And this is before the increase.
