US bikers fund spinal injury research
Published: 22 Jun 07

BIKERS in Indiana have been singled out to pay an extra $10 registration fee to fund a new program to track and research spinal cord and brain injuries.

The base registration fee has risen from $17 to $27 and the Legislative Services Agency estimates it will generate about $1.6 million annually.

Many Indiana motorcyclists are angry about the fee increase, said Jay Jackson of ABATE of Indiana, a group that advocates motorcycling and bike safety.

"We have nothing against medical research but we don't want to be the ones who are responsible for funding it solely. If it was a fair tax, we would take our lumps like everybody else." said Jackson.

Sure doesn't seem fair. I live in Illinois though and here it cost $38 to register. And all of it goes to the state. Hoosiers are helping people out and still coming in cheaper than those of us on the west side of the border.
