Bloody road tax due again :yell: just in time for Christmas
Did think about getting just 6 months but then another payment would then fall in at the same time as the insurance. Bit of a no win situation.
Perhaps I'll just not pay it this time around and join the ever growing numbers that 'can't be bovvered officer'

When I had the 350Z all of mine fell in July. I have a stagger at the moment, but the Forester and Impreza services are within a few weeks of one another. :icon_sad:

MOT tax and insurance are all together for me, well, within a month, and the services are whenever it needs them, speaking of which it's about there on that score too.

And for me, MOT due at the end of Nov, as is the Tax, Insurance due next week I think - that reminds me!!

Not helped this year by the departure from this world of the SLS rear suspension! That is one I hadn't budgeted for! (but I had just hit 78,000 miles)

Thanks to Ivan at Foresters it wasn't as bad as it could have been :icon_cool:

What VED emissions band do you think cyclists should be taxed in, then?

I think it's best I don't comment on cyclists.but solo tend to be ok on the whole with a few exceptions but Tour de France wannabe groups are a different matter entirely! And don't start me on Lycra on Middle aged fat men.

How about throwing insurance into the mix?!
Yep. All cyclists should be required by law to carry sufficient insurance to cover those incidents when they're involved in any form of accident. As it stands at present a cyclist can cause an accident and apart from going through the courts there really is no means of recouping the cost of repairs. The self employed are required to carry cover for accidents caused at work so why not cyclists

in germany it is a scare culture, almost everyone has insurance as even as a pedestrian you can cause an accident (dont ask me what as i find it ridiculous) or e.g. if your dog runs and a car tries to avoid him and crashes you have to pay.
there is some logic to it but mainly it generates business for insurance companies.
soon you will need insurance to go to the toilet...

...you think third party, fire and theft will suffice..?
Fully comp for sure! What if a rat jumps out and bites your willy and the toilet operators don't accept liability?
