I think you will find a DCi Clio will be 30 as it emits
just over the magic 100 g/km but it's still a total nonsense
to charge so much for a 125, it costs me about twice
as much to tax my 650cc bike as it does to tax my Clio.
I think the congestion charge in London and the coming
of others will make bikes and scooters more popular and
this is the governments way of clawing money back.
I have already signed.

Anyone know what bigger bikes will cost? the 650 could
end up costing more than a 4x4 at that rate, bikes are
thought of as a hobby not a method of transport in this
country and are taxed as such.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
