I was considering using a company called moto recycle, I know they go through Vermont but I assumed they had someone on the ground there. Seems like I can register on Vermont on my own without paying a titling service $150. Thanks!

Of course getting a bill of sale notarized somehow would still provide me the easiest, fastest rout.

Better to leave plate on and get a ticket. You save the $295 tow fee

the idea behind removing the plate is the more common parking enforcement patrols won't ticket you. They didn't typically tow as often, however it appears as of the last week they've been on a mission.

Without a plate you can park nearly all year with no tickets and you may get towed once or twice.

How many days of "parking" would it take to save the $285 tow fee plus ticket. Compare that to the odds of being ticketed or towed in that same period. That's my cost benefit POV.

The days of plate removal being a viable option seem to be drawing to a close with NYPD cracking down on the practice city-wide.

It would be nice if DOT would provide motorcycles with some legal alternatives. It's literally impossible to park a motorcycle legally in much of midtown, including in private facilities.

We don't. City law passed which allows you to keep the Muni receipt in your pocket, and send a *copy* of it in as a defense if you get a ticket.

Keep in mind, you cannot pay for Muni parking in a *commercial* zone, which is probably where this bike was parked (as is most of Midtown).



BTW(!), there is a rumor that parking NORTH of where the Dyer ave parking triangle was, will be permitted. IOW, PANY won't have your bike towed.

Here's the location (lat/long 40.755261, -73.996383):

This was 1 hour muni parking between 49th and 50th on 8th. Legally parked, other than the lack of license place and receipt.

I like the American flag plate puller. "Don't tow me, I'm a patriot!"

Hippodrome parking 43rd and 6th Ave. Separate motorbike area, $199 a month.

Don't love it but it's a cost saver versus midtown street parking.

I leave my receipt clipped into my tank key lid. I've never had anyone take it.

For what it's worth, when I was rebuked by a cop for pulling my plate to park on the sidewalk, I asked him what he suggested I do. He said I should park in the munimeter area and pay and leave my plate on. When I pointed out the hourly limits, he said that was unlikely to be enforced.

That's nice, I guess, but how many bikes would actually fit there? Four? If there's not already a PO's car there?

Every time I go past the dyer triangle I kind of shake my head in frustration and disbelief. The original plan by CB4 for a parklet between 34 &35 actually looked nice. The space they ended up being granted and the resulting whatever is a travesty. Who the Hell is ever going to use the patch of green concrete they created in the middle is of this traffic jam? What a waste

The correct answer would be, "Yep! That's the limit!"

Probably enough room for about 7 bikes.

I'm with you on the green ground. It's absurd. Maybe bikes should just start parking there again.
