That's nuts.  I could see a few bucks but more than doubling the fee?

Andy probably asked Billy Joel and they both figured why not?  Motorcycles are luxury items.

Got mine in the mail today. You must have ordered a new plate. $17.50 with no new plate. I paid $48.76 for a new plate but keeping the same numbers/letters.

Might want to call and ask, "What's up"? To get to $42.50, it looks to me that they may have zoomed you for new plates too.

I just went online to MyDMV and checked the cost to renew.  It offered 3 options.  $17.50 to keep the current plate for all my bikes. The other options were $30 to renew with a new excelsior plate number and $50 to renew with new excelsior plate with my current number.

There is an MTA Fee license renewals too. Remember, just like schools and defense, there isn't enough money on the planet to satiate the needs of the MTA. All they know is "more".

So is this only for counties with MTA services?  My county does not so I guess that’s why I’m not seeing it.  I know we pay a “NYS law enforcement” fee.

Yes it is the downstate counties that are in the MTA region. That part that I consider "downstate" versus "upstate". We also get the enhanced emissions inspections, MTA mortgage tax, MTA payroll tax and 0.25% MTA sales tax. There are some others IIRC but I do not remember them all at the moment. All I know is, as mentioned above, there is never enough money for the MTA. They waste it like drunken sailors on holiday with absolutely no accountability. I have heard so many first hand stories of waste and malfeasance from insiders it makes you sick. And it will continue forever because of the threat that its demise will kill the economy. So you keep feeding and feeding the cancer hoping it will improve on its own.
