Snow or not, if you consider riding through Manhattan an adventure ride, you really have to get out more.

Edit - In reply to the Washingtonville pic.

Uh... Is that any better today? I just picked up my new Tiger 800 and was planning a trip up to Sullivan County tomorrow to check on the family's summer place. If the roads are going to be that bad still, I may just need to take the truck...

Yes, especially the ones that step out in front of you trying to flag the cab that is bearing down on you from behind! Patients people.

Yes, peds are the worst. The one thing I worry about the most is hitting a damn pedestrian. When Iím filtering along through traffic I always scan the sidewalk and possible ped infiltration points for one that looks like a potential darter. It is amazing that some people here in the city have no concept of what is using the street other than cars. When people step off the sidewalk mid-block from behind a parked cargo van are they really assuming that if the cars are stopped nothing else is moving? Donít they ever see the bicycles, motorcycles, rollerbladers, hotdog carts, horses, or whatever other street user thatís not as wide as a car? People just walk on out there without so much as a look in the direction of traffic.
I really do keep it slow, like under 10mph if I donít have good visibility of potential threats. I figure any speed is better than 0.

Anyone know what sort of blame would be applied for a J-walking incident involving a motorcycle moving through stopped traffic? I know that when a car strikes a ped that darts out from a parked car or whatever the driver is usually not found at fault. It is illegal for a pedestrian to cross if a crosswalk is provided at each end of the block.

Question Taking it off-road

So where do all you dual sport riders go around here to get muddy? Springs coming and it's time I get the bike off the road.

Any up for coming along?

Cheers,

B
