Oh you're nuts. About 8PM tonight, before they plowed smith street, I went to drive my sister in law home. 10 min away mind you. The 2nd right turn, going 5MPH I turned the wheel and the car didn't turn. Brakes weren't even home. I smacked into a tree and broke my headlight housing and bent my bumper so now the wheel hits it when I turn right. Everyone is OK and the tree is fine but I promply turned back onto my block and parked. In fairness I didn't switch the 4WD on yet so that may have had something to do with it. I can't see going out on 2 wheels tonight.

Friend from Poland is coming to NYC for couple of weeks in the summer and is looking for a BMW rental, 800 or 1200 GS. Can you recommend a rental place in NYC Metro area? I found Jupiter but their prices seems little high to my taste.

The Harley dealer off of 17 in NJ sprung up a giant BMW sign. I know they rent harleys but it might be worth a phone call to see if they also rent BWM now.

Husaberg sumo stolen in BK

A guy who parks in the same garage as me (Vaxmoto) had his Husaberg FS650c stolen last night from his apt in Sunset Park.

It's a pretty rare bike, so I figured I'd throw this out there for him. If anyone hears/sees anything, shoot me a PM and I'll tell him.

That sucks. Any better description of the bike or pics? I live in the area and always keep an eye out and pics of stolen bikes on my phone in case I see one. I got a guy his KTM back after seeing an ad on craigslist then...there it was parked on smith street near my house a few hours later..

Starting a new job at 40th and Bway on Feb 11. I'll be commuting by train, but on the off chance I want to ride in to get a head start on a weekend trip, is there anywhere remotely convenient that wont cost an arm and a leg to park a bike near there?
