Then helmet cam guy comes forward with a lawyer speaking for him and says "...a water bottle was thrown from the SUV through the sunroof..."

Now the celebrity lawyer is claiming the SUV hit someone else prior to the video and THAT'S what started it all. Mr. Cruz then says he was "...switching lanes so he looked back at the driver..."

The sad part is that I think these guys will just plea down to misdemeanors and traffic tickets, while some judge awards Mieses $5M because the SUV driver COULD have avoided him in his get away, even if he was panicked and felt threatened. He COULD have done something different. It will be absurd, like the judge's ruling in the Joseph Lozito lawsuit. That was probably discussed somewhere else here, but for those who don't know, the NYPD never made a DIRECT promise to protect the people of NYC and therefore have no special duty to protect the people of NYC.
Cruz' attorney - Cruz being the one who supposedly got tapped in the beginning of that video - says that Cruz "didn’t see any prior interaction that may have happened between the SUV and the motorcyclists."

Veeery interesting.....I wonder how many bikes there have had their VIN's run by NYPD to see if they show up as stolen and then be reunited with their rightful owners...

I really hope this isn't the situation we had in Boston in the early 90's where the PD was caught sitting on this stuff(mostly high end bicycles) so they could then let the statues of limitations run out and then sell or take the property and use it for their own financial benefit...

In the bad old days, cops used to use the impound lot in Whitestone as their own personal used parts junk yard.

Hopefully, that behavior has ended.

What shop in the nearby area has a large selection of helmets to try on?
I bought my first helmet 3 months ago based on very little riding experience.

I'd like to look at a few helmets now while doing more research.
Online searching and videos are great but I'd like to feel the difference.

Also while on the subject - how do I know what features will help for an NYC winter ?

Try a big dealership and some cycle gears have lots on hand.

For cold weather : heated grips(look for Oxford), hand guards, waterproof boots and jacket. Tall screen to cut the wind if you dont have one. Two weeks ago CG was having big disocunts on their entry level warm gear. Bought a Bilt jacket for 99$ along with some pretty nice boots for 89$ and warm gloves for 20$.
