Why? Do you have something to hide?

Well, we certainly can't have that!

In light of that, I'll answer a question about EZ-Pass (probably mine, the memory ain't what it used to be. )
AFAIK from perusing the NY DOT site, you don't have to have a separate EZ-Pass for each vehicle, but you don't want to share one between a car and a bike as MCs get a pretty good discount on EZ Pass tolls. If you used your car transponder on your bike you'd be wasting money, and I'm sure they'd whack your PP if you tried the reverse.

I am rarely in the city. But when I do drive there it's a whole new world and am very apprehensive. Im sure I could get used to it just like I got used to the first turn in motocross. But in motocross I at least know the direction everyone is trying to go.

Hey all, my company is moving offices at the end of April to Broadway and 38th Street. Is there any alternate side parking in the area, where I can park all day, or if not, are there any garages in the area that are moto friendly?

It's the best way to store a bike in the winter for people without garages. 5 years later, the Vstrom just stays outside

So...I work at 40th and Broadway and today I saw some motorcycles parked right on the red pavement thats now a pedestrian area. Albeit they were on the edge of it (on the traffic side), I'm going to keep an eye on this because there were about 4 bikes there (one was a yellow GS, actually).

Is this legal? Does it just depend on who is enforcing that day? It seems too good to be true...it's 50 feet from my office door.

Sorry if my explanation wasn't clear, google street view isn't updated. Heading downtown on Broadway, there is almost a shoulder on the left side of traffic where cars have parked, and the bikes have squeezed in there.
