Good luck even finding one, and if one is found on you I guarantee you're not walking away with it, fishing license or not.

Want switchblades (AKA automatic knives), here ya' go: http://www.bladehq.com/cat--Side-Opening-Automatics--40

Those are just the side openers, out the fronts are there too.

CT allows possession, but not carry. They are legal for carry in many states. Incredibly, even CA allows carry if the blade is less than 2". They sell a whole subclass of CA legal knives.

Send a message to jdaniele on adv.

JD just completed the first major maintenance (15,000 km) on my KTM 950 SMR. I swear, this thing has never been as solid, even when I bought it last year with only 2,400 miles! It sounds great (MUCH quieter) and is running a lot smoother.

Five of the valves were out of spec, which would have been a much bigger job than I would have wanted to do in my backyard. JD had the necessary shims on hand, and he had me back on two in less than a week! (It helps if you show up with all the necessary parts and fluids. )

And, let's talk about the "extra mile": JD haz it. He found an exhaust leak, sorted my idle speed, perfectly synced my carbs, CLEANED my chain (prolly had to use a chisel for that ) and countless other details. He followed up the next day with a call to confirm the torque value was right for one of the bolts. I have a copy of all the valve clearances prior to adjustment, too, which went right into my own anal-retentive vehicle history file which documents every little thing.

Bottom line, if anyone in NYC is looking for someone they can TRUST as much as they would their own hand (or more ), JD is the man.

Miscellaneous fix-it shop?

Not motorcycle related but ... any recommendations for a 'fix-it' shop in Brooklyn? (preferably not far from Clinton Hill) The lid on my espresso maker (stove top) needs spot welding.

Cheers

Many body shops have spot welding equipment.

I had my first tip-over from street parking today (or, last night). For a little over a month, I've been parking one of my bikes on the street (the one least likely to get stolen). I knew this would happen, but not like this- it was knocked over towards the kickstand! I didn't have time to check for damage; I'll do that tonight. Nonetheless, I'm pretty pissed off. I imagine something has to be broken to fall in that direction.

Totally sucks.
Was it the TX?
If so, you should be in decent shape. A lot of the older bikes fall pretty well considering most of the stuff can be bent back into shape.

bike storage avail

Hey, figured I'd throw this out there - I have a 24/7 bike storage container in a Brklyn storage facility. It's in Gowanus - sort of (30s' and 3rd ave) - full cameras, etc.

I've got 2 bikes but rarely even have one in it - more so in the winter. Space can hold 3.

Anyone interested in renting some space for a (1) bike? I wouldn't say it's good for every day storage, but if you're using it a few times a wk or wknds only it's perfect.

100$ a month.

pm me if you're interested.

Yes, it was the TX... what worries me is thinking about how hard it must have been hit to fall towards the kickstand. There is no parking from that direction (I was at the end, just before a traffic light) so it must have been a car going straight through the light- but I really can't play it out in my head (it doesn't make any sense). Now, if it fell the other direction, I would totally understand; a car trying to parallel park could have knocked it over.

That's a thought .... though I'd prefer someone working with smaller items that might require more finesse, if you know what I mean.

Awesome!


And that's the feeling I get wearing my Aerostich into city traffic combat.
My 3 year old thinks I'm either Superman or Iron Man and can't wait to jump into my boots, helmet, and gloves.

These guys just never got their own bike.
