Classic Bike Guide

What a rip-off!


Perhaps you have noticed that motorcycle road tax increases almost every year, yet my Suzuki

Alto car has not gone up from £30 for 15 years.

It is a 1200cc, compared to my Honda XL125cc, which is £22 this year. Which is the greener, more environmen­tal vehicle? Is the Government anti-bike or what in 2022?

Yours, Les Burney.

I am afraid the issue is that the authoritie­s are not against us necessaril­y – they don’t even think of us in the first place! Working and living in London, bikes are there to deliver takeaways and try to run you over – not for enthusiast­s keeping pieces of history alive. Still, keep that XL going well, Les! – Matt
