Anyone know the monthly motorbike parking rates at the Hippodrome garage on West 43rd Street?

What did he say when you asked him if you could borrow his bolt cutters?

had to order a part for my POS bike. package was a bit heavier than i expected for the little plastic fuel line piece i ordered.

opened it up and found this;



so just wanted to give a shout out to Max BMW and highly recommend them to anyone that has beemer needs. They are definitely worth the drive for any service you need done. They have some cool back roads nearby they will clue you into if you ask and apparently they support m&m addiction when you order parts online, YMMV. No traveling required that way, but then again what did you buy that bike for?

Unfortunately the contents of a million bags of these could not begin to sweeten the sour taste BMW North America and BMW Manhattan have left in my mouth for the overall brand.

Max BMW is a great place. When my bike was destroyed i found the same one in showroom condition, a few years older but a lot less miles. They gave me a great deal on the bike. It was in there Connecticut store. Zack did everything over the phone and then delivered the bike to Brooklyn for free. A few months later I lost the only key. I called Zack and in 4 days there were 2 keys in my mailbox, no charge. They also host a great event at Hunter Mountain.

Colors in the Catskills/ Octoberfest. It is a great event. I've gone to three out of the last 4 events. Will be there again this year.

NYC is requiring helmets for the commercial bicyclists yet only suggesting them for their new commercial 10,000 bike fleet soon to be released upon the city. We will soon forget about the electrics being a nuisance.

"Why are the electrics illegal? The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles does not register electric bicycles, therefore their operation is prohibited in New York City. Something about the federal government passing a law that classified certain electric bikes as bicycles, exempting them from regulations that apply to street-legal motorcycles. But Albany never updated state code to reflect the change. Since electric bikes don’t come from the factory with vehicle identification numbers — because VIN plates aren’t required by federal regulations — they can’t be registered with the state Department of Motor Vehicles."

Those battery scooters are why you (or your friends) can order food and get it in a snap. I am totally pro-electric bicycle. I think NYC should be endorsing electric bikes (and scooters and motorcycles) like crazy--rather than endorsing cars they way they do.

I've no problem with that as long as these scooter riders also wear DoT helmets,DoT approved glasses,pay insurance,registration and observe the rules of the road like I have to but the fact is they dont.
