just ride there and park where I park- usually with the other 20-50 bikes.

A few months ago I was working near the Javits and didn't have a problem finding parking between 10th and 11th.in the 30's.

In fairness though I did pull my plate off, You can usually park most anywhere if you pull your plate. Just don't let them catch you putting it back on. I just got a "plate puller" frame to make it easier and quicker and not having to worry about the velcro wearing out.

How many of you guys take your plate off when you park and what do you use to hold it on??

At the Javits during the motorcycle show it should be fine.

At last years show they had several security people outside specifically tasked not to allow parking around the outside plaza.

Unless they've relaxed on this issue, I wouldn't plan on parking there.

Sidewinder Laser cut key cutter needed - NYC area

Anyone know where I can get my transponder duplicate blank key cut?
From what I have gathered so far is the locksmith or dealer needs to have a sidewinder or laser key cutter.
It's my spare for the Guzzi Griso.

So who owns the black Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 I just spotted on 83/Lex? It's beautiful.

Christmas Lights...

Dear fellow road warriors:

It's that time again. In a few days I'm taking Mom for a drive around the city to check out all the places with overwhelming Christmas light displays.

I NEED YOUR INTELLIGENCE. Such as it is.

Due to limited seat time tolerances I think I'll be restricting this to Brooklyn and Queens but if there's enough awesomeness in da' Bronx we might go out of our way. I'm looking for overdone lighting or at least tastefully overboard homes and businesses but if you know of entire blocks that are at least nicely done, that's great too. Please let me know.

Here's what I have right now, sighted and confirmed:

Queens

76th Street and 77th Road in Ridgewood
80th Drive and Chevy Chase in Fresh Meadows
23rd Avenue and 166th Street in Bayside
56th Avenue and 214th Street in Bayside (just so-so)

Brooklyn

Flatlands Avenue and East 93rd Street in Canarsie
310 22nd Street between 6th & 7th Avenues in South Slope
and of course six friggin' square blocks of DYKER HEIGHTS

While the Garabedian house on Pelham Parkway is certainly overdone, I'm not sure it's worth the trip to Da Bronx just to see it. There's a couple of houses along Pelham with nice lights, but nothing on the scale of the Garabedian home.

finance/econ which makes me the new daylabors of the financial age. picking up my wrenching skills doing the books at a vintage motorcycle shop in brooklyn and crappy part time IT work. really just delaying life and saving to travel.

If you've got a vehicle with a hitch, u-haul rents a motorcycle trailer for $19 per day.

Thanks Steve. That home was always pretty awesome.

FYI folks just to add to the list, the area of Bay Ridge south of Owl's Head Park is fairly well-lit. I wouldn't say there were any houses there that were over the top but the neighborhood is certainly festive in terms of the number of homes that had nice lighting up, and is worth a few minutes of criss-crossing.

Sadly, Howard Beach is pretty much done. Christmas lights there have been declining over the last few years and recovering from the Hurricane Sandy seems to have sapped most of what few folks were left who might have still been interested in lighting up their homes for the holidays.

If anyone else has anything to add, feel free. One more day to go!
