Rode back from NJ last night and just before the entrance of the Holland tunnel the view of downtown NYC was spectacular.

Second, it's not like they make these contraptions available when you enter the city. When a visitor comes to the city on two wheels is there a dispenser containing these things at the entrances to the bridges and tunnels? Is there a sign indicating that you're going to need them? Are there dispensers for these contraptions on the meters? Do the traffic cops carry them around to give out to motorcyclists? Can you even ask for one when you go to administrative court? Fuck no! You have to write to NYC DOT to request one.

It is stupid. Other cities have installed electronic meters that work acceptably with motorcycles. They do exist already. It's not rocket science. The city knew this was a problem, is currently installing new, different electronic meters and those newer ones still do not work acceptably with motorcycles.

Cities which cannot be bothered to fix this oversight - at this point an intentional oversight - have made motorcycle parking free. I don't see why we can't.

As far as I'm concerned this law does not even apply to me. The law specifies that I must place the receipt on my dashboard. I do not have a dashboard. Fuck this place.

Yesterday I saw a scooter that had a fake license plate inside one of those pull-a-plate things. There was a parking summons that featured the fake registration. I'm lovin' it!
Recently got the bike out to the city and about the third time I parked out front I saw a meter maid and cornered her for info straight from the horses mouth. (Actually, she wasn't that ugly)

Cover your bike. According to her, they won't touch it. Metered parking, sidewalk (as long as its not blocking any access) whatever. If its got a cover (and not place to attach ticket, they leave it alone.

Yesterday, I parked on 3rd ave 76th for a Dr appt. bought a ticket and put it in my wallet (cause the mc riding doorman next door told me people stole them off you bike of you attached them). Went into a bodega for a water, MMs hiving do I went and showed them my receipt. Tore up ticket and advised me to take my plate off. They can't write tix with no registration. (next time I take to a MM I'm going to "Voice Memo" it).

Come out 15 min later and ANOTHER MM had written me a ticket caught another and said WTF? Told me to mail tic in with receipt and check "Other/MC."

YMMV

I could probably stand a round without breaking the bank. Worse comes to worse, I found a sweet new "camping spot" in Central Park today!

Nah, he took off for CT and RI on Sunday night. He might join me on the Berkshire ride on Sunday. If he comes back to stay with us I'll make sure to bring him to the Ear. Enjoy your evening!!!
