Hey guys, who wants to play hooky on Friday? I'll be riding up to Max with a buddy (riding bitch) so he can take possession of his new F800R.

We'll be leaving Brooklyn around 8 or 9 or whenever I decide to wake up.

While I'm here, anyone have a nice route for us back?

I figure since we'll be in CT it would be nice to grab a boiled burger, anyone know of any good ones? The two I ate at previously are no longer around. :(

Anyone got a bike for sale?

Howdy,

My girlfriend just got her motorcycle license and is looking for a bike.

Should be ~$1000, preferably more like $600 and needing a carb clean / battery type deal.

She's 5'2", so a Honda CB360-sized bike would be ideal.

Honda CB-style 350s-450s is probably going to be the best, unless you guys know of another sweet beginning bike for someone short.

Thanks!

Someone told me about it and sure enough I had some taxes from a few years ago due me. A week after filling out the online form I received a check from NY for $400!!

I encourage all of you to go here, I guarantee either you or someone you know is due money. Try family members, maiden names, and other states besides NY as well. Here it is, let me know how much money you guys get!!

Hey, I tried this website when I saw this post, and I got a check from T-Mobile yesterday for $50!
Thanks!

CL has a few CBs for sale but expensive. Also try YAHBO (inmate) on Long Island. Don't know if he will get back to you or not, I had asked him about a bike for my daughter and he never responded.... but you never know.

You just need to get out of the city and there are plenty of sub $1000 CB's out there.

E-start too, which may be a factor. I've seen them in NE for sub-$1000, you just need to keep looking and if it isn't good walk away.

tickets in Manhattan

Unreal... Ive been parking in the afternoon off and on on Broadway between 38 and 39. Usually i get there at about 2 pm in the afternoon take the plate off and go to my office for a couple of hours. Never had a problem until... some ahole parking person writes me tickets for no parking and no plate. He found my vehicle ID # and wrote them that way.... $180 bucks... Can anyone suggest a defence or method to either reduce or dismiss these tickets... It seems so crazy that two wheelers need to deal with this shit and that the city does not encourage us to use motorized bikes/scooters etc by at least letting us park somewhere....

You're not going to find much sympathy here. Tickets and/or towing for pulling the plates is a known risk. I've done it before too, but no longer need to now with free legal parking near my job.

Check the VIN and everything else on the ticket to see if it's written out correctly. I have gotten out of a parking ticket before due to sloppy handwriting.
