    ok so some cars are going to get free tax discs due to low emissions
    but there is no similar arrangement for bikes
    In fact we remain on a cc based price scheme, while cars radually all move
    to emissions
    Not that my choice of bike would be effected by emissions, but I thought I
    get some faint hope of cheaper tax if my bike was considered low
    sulk over.

    I suspect an R1 has anything but low emissions when compared to
    properly low emission cars.

  3. Too right - and for much urban driving the car will be spending periods
    getting zero mpg. A bike is almost always moving.

    who cares?

    No additional duty on spirits and sparkling wine - job done.

    Though the tax on a 2nd mobile phone provided by your employer is
    going to impact a lot of people who have company mobiles and

    If you even dare to think in those terms you will end up putting your
    foot down. And that is the first step on the path to turning the engine

    We've got a mobile phone and will soon be given XDA type devices which will
    have data-only sim cards.
    Neither of them are used for personal use but if that's becomes taxable I'll
    refuse to have an extra device unless I get paid more.

  7. Yeah, it's a slippery slope. I know a bloke who pulled his clutch in:
    just to change into 3rd. Five minutes later he'd given up biking and
    bought a cage.

    It's a worry for us all. Eternal vigilance and adherence to the code is
    the only way.

  9. And preferably on one wheel, to save on tyre wear.
