I will be coming up to NYC for three or four days to visit my daughter. She has a sublet on 112th 3 doors down from Broadway. I will sadly be in the minivan instead of my K1200S. Is there any offstreet parking in that area? I am planning to cruise around hoping to pounce on a street spot but in case none is available it would be nice to have another option.


THanks,

Mike
He pretended nothing happened. I looked over my bike and other than the gold paint, it was fine, so I just kept rolling. Life is too short to care too much.

Thanks for the tips. Yesterday I left home before 6:30 and go into Newark before 8, while also dropping my fiance at work. Going back home I left at 6:30 heading towards the GWB to the RFK and it took less than an hour total.

I doubt that.
If they start doing that, they're going to be awfully busy.

So my sign has returned! Someone found it in a flower bed around the corner and gave it back to me at work this morning. It either blew off and flopped around the corner, or someone stole it then decided they didn't want it and dropped it. Either way, it made my day.

It technically *can* happen, but in practice usually does not--there are a lot of motos in NYC, and even harassment from da fuzz has limits when it comes to sheer numbers.

A five-o is more likely to simply issue a citation for aftermarket exhaust if he's already stopped you for something else and you happened to annoy him or he's just in a bad mood that day.

I think exceptions to exhaust "compliance" can often be vintage and/or custom cycles that clearly don't have a manufacturer's exhaust standard to adhere to.

Question

Hey all, my Vstrom buying adventure continues. The previous one did not work out, it was sold before I could take a test drive.

I've scheduled another test drive this Saturday with an out of state private owner that has a loan on the bike.

How do we complete the sale when the title has a lien? I've done some googling but I'm finding conflicting information.

Many Thanks

Kevin

He needs to pay off the loan in full. Then the lien release takes some time to release. In my case it took 3 days with overnighting.

The catch is it's hard to pay off the loan without getting the cash from the sale first.
In my case I did what others would recommend NOT doing.
I built a level of trust with the buyer. He gave me a check made out to bmw for the amount of the sale, and I gave him the bike and a signed over title. At that point the lien was still active but the buyer had the bike, a signed title, and a bill of sale we both signed.
A few days later after the full payments were sent to bmw the line was released. He then registered the bike.

Has he paid off the loan already? if so he should have a loan payoff letter from the lending institution. If not, and he is doing it after the sale, then you will not be able to register the bike until he provides you with the payoff letter. This will take at least 5-7 working days, even with overnighting of bank check to lien holder.
Once you have the lein payoff letter, you present that to the DMV along with the signed over title, the DTF-802, MV-81, and your insurance card and your good to go.

Hi All,

I'm still looking for a radiator shop that will (attempt to) fix the small leak in my bike's radiator. If you can think of anyone please give me a shout. I've called a couple of shops and they say they only work on cars ... I don't know what the difference might be. I would be bringing the radiator in sans bike.

If you know of a good way to plug small, hard to find holes (broken joint?), I'd appreciate hearing about that too.

Thanks!

You could send it out. I believe they have a quick turn around time.

What parameters New York City's jackbooted thugs in blue use to impound a motorcycle right now, is anyone's guess. From what I can tell, the cops at these checkpoints have no fucking idea what the laws really are. They're inclined to write tickets for what they think is illegal and force you to defend yourself later.

As for actual laws...

There is a NYC law passed in 2007 which states you can be ticketed if the bike is "plainly audible" at over 200'. I don't know if it has ever been enforced. I do know that cops whine about it requiring too much coordination to enforce.

http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/nycode/ADC/24/2/6/24-236

There are NYS equipment laws which prohibit cut-outs, removable baffles, lack of baffles, etc. Fairly easy to enforce using a flashlight and a stick.

http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/nycode/VAT/III/9/381

There are also NYS laws which govern the noise amplitude, which are essentially impossible to enforce in an urban setting.

http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/nycode/VAT/III/10/386

And there are federal laws which govern noise, labeling, etc. at the time of manufacture, sale and import but they are not locally enforceable to end users, at least not in NY. A few localities around the country (and the state of California) do have laws in place which incorporate parts of the CFR as they pertain to labeling but they are largely unenforced due to threats of law suits (i.e. Boston) or can be superseded by an actual noise test (i.e. Denver).

http://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/40/part-205

So what this all means is, no, an "aftermarket exhaust" is not by itself a cause for a ticket here. If on the other hand that aftermarket exhaust is too loud and/or lacks proper baffling, that IS a cause for a ticket here.
