Maybe. It was actually on Saturday around 6:30 PM (+/- 1hr), at Exit 38 BQE Westbound (Queens Blvd on-ramp) I was wearing all black and was with a girl with a red jacket and blue jeans. I turned the bike around and we coasted on it down the shoulder to the on-ramp.

I love running out of gas! She's a sport, but it sucked because I walked off the highway to a gas station, called a truck through the AMA, he took 2 hours to come, then told me he couldn't pick up the bike because his contract didn't cover teh on ramp. I tried to push the bike the wrong direction through the curved tunnel of the Queens Blvd on-ramp, but cops came and stopped me. Had to wait for another tow truck and then ages while the new truck's friend brought more tie-downs.

Queens -> Atlantic Avenue took 4.5 hours.

I always push the bike off the highway if I feel like taking chances - only because on most major roadways you can't use private towing.

Call Chris at Jupiters - http://www.jupitersmc.com/storage.php. He's down on 8th and 3rd Ave in Brooklyn, not so far from the Heights.

I rode to Pennsylvania near the Delaware Gap
sometimes I got lost and had to check the map
I stopped at a roadside diner for a burger and a coke

There were some country folk and some hunters inside
somebody got themselves married and somebody died
I went to the juke box and played a hillbilly song

They was arguing about football as I waved and went outside
and I headed for the mountains feeling warm inside
I love that GPZ so much, you know that I could kiss her"

Is this the way the bike was towed? Side stand is attached to the crankcase,too much pressure on it is a bad thing.

Used to see him around at the bike show and dealerships. Pretty quiet guy, and knew a fair bit about bikes.

Riding in bus only lanes?

Hey All,

I'm rather new to riding in NYC and I'm curious if it's legal to ride a motorcycle in the bus only lanes of the city. Anyone know?

Cheers,
