The one in my truck has never failed (so far), and the ones for my bikes work about 30% of the time.
What's the mechanism that 'resets' the gate? I'm guessing it's an electronic eye that counts wheels going by past the gate, but I'm always weary that if I don't go quick enough, it will come down on me. Having to re-mount and get moving again after opening the gate would be nerve-wracking...

notary assist

hey folks

so it's my understanding that one can sometimes find places that will notarize documents, and that sometimes those places don't really care all that much what the document says or whether the person whose name is on the document is actually there. these are just things that i hear. maybe i hear that a place like this exists somewhere in a mysterious land called brooke-lynn, or da broncks. maybe it moves from burrow to burrough, i don't know. again, one hears things.


hythopopically spoken, imagine that i bought a really old, like 35 years old bike, and imagine that the pile of papers the PO gave me, while authentic, were completely useless due to the bike changing hands multiple times without getting reregistered.

imagine further that the only thing i need to get the bike titled and registered to me is a notarized bill of sale.

just imagine.

anyway, maybe drop me a PM if this hyperthoptical scenario somehow tugs at your heartstrings. maybe you hear things too.

First off, do bikes which are 35 years old even have a title?

Second, check out this thread:

Not as easy as just getting a notarized bill of sale but you could go the Maine route. Done all the time for classics.

Titles in NY started in 1973. The '73 Kawasaki G5 100cc enduro I bought for my wife (and which she rode twice) was my first new bike to come with a title.

Easiest thing by far is still to find the last owner and get them to produce a replacement title.

I know of no other easy way. Even for bikes that were made in years that predated titles there is an expectation of there having been issued a title at some point.

NYS DMV are not pushovers.

I'm not sure what the car was doing, but I'm pretty sure the motorcyclist was at least 50% at fault there. Why the fuck did he drive into that car?

And it looked like without a helmet...



First off, it's a school bus at full stop. Duh? Last I checked that's the holy grail of tickets....

2nd, rider was obviously speeding through residential.

3rd, With that bike he had the braking power to slow (or maybe even stop with better skills) to around 1/4 of that speed.

No, to register in Vermont w/o a title the bike needs to be under 300cc, or more than 15 years old.

Yeah, nice baseball cap the rider had. Welcome to Floriduh.

No, it's not a school bus.

Yes, clearly going too fast.

Bad reaction may have played a part but he had nowhere to go.

I'm starting a new job in Hoboken on Monday. I can't help the huge happy feeling it gives me knowing that I won't be an nyc commuter anymore, never knowing if my bike will be there (9th avenue bicycle parking) when I leave the office.

I hope you'll still let me post here!
