I think he can blame the thief.

On another note, is it legal to ride a motorcycle in a terracotta bus lane in NYC, or one of those lanes that says "buses only 7am-7pm" type deal? I do a lot but will more brazenly if it's legal.

Not as far as I know. Actually I got a ticket for riding in one. Maybe isn't be able to get away with it being in the edge of the right most lane before it splitting but I would just split in another lane

Anyway, for years I would just leave it on the bike, usually hanging off the handlebars. A few weeks back someone took it. Probably just cause it was there, certainly not for themselves or to even sell it.

That really pissed me off, happened right in front of my house.
"According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, motorcycle thefts in nineteen Texas cities decreased 44% in the two years after Texas legislature enacted a mandatory helmet law."

This is because it makes stealing a bike a pain in the ass if you have no helmet. Also I know plenty of people that would like to try riding but have no helmet. Stealing any helmet solves this for them- it doesn't need to be pretty.

Oh and.. a few weeks ago someone puked all over my helmet and it was locked to my bike. That ride home sucked. I refuse to leave my helmet even locked to the bike now.

The Halal cart on 53rd and 6. Very classy!

I had dinner with my family for Mom's birthday at McCormick and Schmick (52nd and 6th) a couple of years ago. Nice place if you like seafood. Otherwise, there are a lot more options if you walk over to 9th.

Nothing good and cheap near the Rock, but these are good and close:

Le Bernardin
The Modern
Brasserie Ruhlmann

There's also some good chocolate shops in Rockefeller Center Plaza
Jacques Torres Chocolate (Downstairs in the concourse)
and
La Maison du Chocolat

boardwayron helped me installing the new cover and foam. I say we did a great job. My butt loves the new seat.

Big Thanks to Ron!

Anyone Missing A White Full-Faced Helmet

There is one on a stake in the middle of the West Side Highway at Canal Street. Was in my cage so didn't see the brand or anything.
