Confused

I own a 2008 Harley 1200 sportster and a Sachs madass 125. In December I registered the Sachs for a total sum of approx $350. Green-slip and registration combined. I am 36yrs old and have been a bike rider since 1994, I have never claimed, I have full comprehensive car and bike insurance etc. Last week I received my new green-slip renewal for my Harley. I also received my rego renewal the same day. The rego is $110. Now where I am confused, and I would love for someone, somewhere to come out and explain clearly and honestly to us all, " Why is my green-slip $700? " I cannot even to begin to understand how they decided that a motorcycle can cost $700 for a green-slip when my car is $500? Maybe there are too many "Silly" riders out there that cause too many insurance claims? Maybe the Government is scraping for its last resources and the poor motorcyclists are the only sector of society they haven't pillaged lately. I originally bought my Sachs 125 because I worked in the city and it was perfect for the commute. That bike weighs 90kg will do 200klm's on 5 litres of fuel, it doesn't even dent the grass, why isn't that $150 a year and my Harley I use to visit my family in the Blue Mountains and that weighs 240kg costs $14 to fill completely and uses about $8 from Revesby to Katoomba, if I happen to have an accident how much damage can I possibly do. Why is my Green-Slip $700 ?????? Please Explain to us all
