8) I actually knew that the taxes weren't payed ....beleive it or not that's just the way things are when u buy a bike.I Imported it from sweden and they dont have the same tax system as we do in Denmark....even though they are members of the EU ....special law in DK....

Twice as much for the taxes as the used bike?!!!
Holy suffering socialism, Batman!

HOW much are you paying for fuel to run it on?

And I thought Holland was bad.

How do you guys EVER get ahead in life?

USD $6.43 a gallon?!!!
That's a LOT of taxes!

Last time I was in Holland the Dutch were paying 70% income tax, I am afraid to ask about DK.

Income taxes ...around 50 %
then there is a "special" tax on everything u buy ....25 % (food and stuff) this rendered Dk the most expensive country in EU in a survey published last week
and if any of us poor SUCKERS buy a bike the taxes is 215 % for the registration...
180 % on cars (approx.)

and to be damn sure no one gets out of line... they release angry polarbears in the streets....and take our firearms away...

Bring it on !!

We're not far off DK. Here you pay registration about 46% of what THEY think the bike costs, then you get raped again by another 18% VAT on the cost of the bike AND the registration.............

Clause and Avi8or,

On what do they base the value of the bike?

If the bike has been wrecked, do they devalue it?
