Well this is.. interesting, but abnormal in my experience. There are (many) states where real estate tax is the only such tax -- there are NO states where you don't have to pay property tax on real...

You pay the taxes on the cars and bike when you register them every year, don't you? I've never lived anywhere (only lived in 7 different states, though) that registration is absolutely mandatory;...

My point is that there is nothing else in the realm of private property that you "must" pay taxes on, after it's paid for. Private property is unique in this regard. That is the original point as...

I was pretty shocked when I started riding again a few years ago, that new bikes do have fuel gauges. I was used to the reserve/cutoff valve and nothing else to help out except the sloshing. Then I...

That's a bit facetious.

Things may be different in other countries, but here in the US, real estate is the one thing you own that will (potentially) be taken by the government if you don't pay...

It's accurate otherwise?! The gauge on the ninja 1000 I had was only accurate when it started flashing the reserve bar. From full tank to half, it registered full.

The ducati I have now doesn't...

They're all a bit out of whack in different ways, but none so much as health insurance, which was my small point. Auto insurance is more expensive for young male drivers, though as you point out the...

The bike is no longer trying to set my calf on fire, just my ass. Maybe make a prettier one someday.
