Highly unlikely, the ticket folks are quite lazy. Some will look up the VIN somewhere, but the majority are not interested.

Its not that hard to locate the Vin though, it would suck to get a sidewalk ticket and a no plate ticket!

I did it for 3 years, got one ticket, the day I forgot to pull the plate.

Get yourself a plate puller, great NYC investment.

Parking in Manhattan

I don't understand how the greatest city in the world has such a hatred towards motorcycles. Born and raised in Brooklyn I always thought every city was like this. In an area where parking is so scarce wouldn't it just make sense to have areas in Manhattan where motorcycles could park. The days of criminals riding motorcycles are over.

I moved from Brooklyn to Connecticut about 10 years ago. In Connecticut every big business has motorcycle parking, usually right by the front door. Today I was at Pitney Bowes, General electric, Pratt and Whitney, Sikorsky and a number of other places, every single company had motorcycle parking. How can the bureaucrats be so stupid, imagine the possibilities in Manhattan. In Connecticut if there is road construction, or a rough road ahead you will see a separate sign warning motorcyclist of possible danger. I feel for you guys, I really do.

I park at a garage - office is in Rockefeller Center. It's worth the investment, when I leave the bike on the street it turns into a tourist attraction. I saw all the bikes parked on 50th street towed twice last year. It's 24/7 and during Sandy I put the bike there :)

I park on the street at home (Brooklyn)

I ride to work everyday, 4 season, rain or shine, including snowstorms. Never gotten a speeding or a parking ticket. But I did get two of the stupidest tickets in the history of tickets last year because the cops were 1# trying to instate 'motorcycle safety' to the riders (bull-crap!!!) and 2# the cop didn't even want to listen to why I got stuck in the middle lane between a crookedly angled car and another car and just wrote me the ticket saying "I don't care if you take it to court". Both tickets are in court I am fighting them tooth and nail.

Join AMA, join NYMSTF; please. This has to change. The NYPD has to keep up with the times and start doing what's right for NYC.

It's a commercial zone and the motorcyclists are taking a big risk by parking there. It only takes one complaint or one truck blocking the traffic and an NYPD officer getting frustrated in mid-summer heat and putting in a call.

motorcycle-only checkpoint

Dear ADVRider Reader,

AMA issued an Action Alert to prohibit motorcycle-only checkpoint funding. I posted the link on the FB page of the NYMSTF, or you can link through here. On my Smartphone the url is not showing as a link. Fingers crossed.

http://capwiz.com/amacycle/issues/alert/?alertid=62648811&queueid=[capwiz:queue_id]

Much love,

Bridget

Ouch. I think I've seen her too, but never had any problems with the dogs.

File an assault complaint with the police. Give the fuckers something to do besides hassle us at checkpoints. Anyone else who has been nipped, do the same and the dog will taken away.

We're on the agenda for the transportation committee in that community board (CB4) but we need help getting a presentation together.

We need people to scout that area and find opportunities for the creation of motorcycle-only parking according to a specific set of criteria, and to take photos. We'll also need help flyering bikes in that area so they can show up to the CB meeting and speak.

Send me a PM if you can help, or e-mail action@nymstf.org
bumping this to the top of the list.
the community board meeting is coming up next week. i am traveling and can't make it but encourage anyone that can, please get in touch with jillian or one of the other dedicated folks that try to make this a better place for motorcyclists.


scouted possible parking space for bikes:

NW Corner, 28th and 8th


NE Corner, 28th and 9th


SE Corner, 38th and 9th



Not helping us... though all this bike parking just gets taken up by delivery bikes anyway, doesn't really help bicycle-riding residents :/
