I think its langone, its on 1st ave by 34th st. Making a run out there today to deal with HR. The kick in th eass is I may not be starting till dec so it may be a moot point for riding, unless we get a winter like 2 yrs ago.

Hi everyone, new to the forum. I posted this in the northeast general but didn't get any help -

Next weekend I am going down to Bucks county for a few days. Specifically I will be going to Springfield, PA and then down to New Hope for a day trip. Can someone suggest a route? I would like to get off the major highways ASAP in NJ as I am riding a KTM 690 SMC. Would really like to get on some nice country roads. So if anyone has suggestions from NYC > Springfield or Springfield > New Hope, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks

If not, anyone have a good but decently compact camping\backpacking stove I can borrow for a week?

I have a jetboil with the pot attachment thingy but i need something with longer burn time and some decent flame adjustment. I'm making 3 gallons of crepe batter which I was gonna cook up while camping.

Free Hungarian crepes for anyone who can help!



Hey Eddie

I have a MSR Wind Pro 2 you can borrow if you want. You can stop by anytime tonight after 6 to pick it up.

Chris,

Someone left a merkin on your seat. Just FYI.

anyone recommend somewhere where i can get my 2006 kawasaki z750s inspected tomw/sunday?

my inspection is up at the end of august and i'm really busy at work this week so was hoping i could drive up without an appt, have them look over the bike, pay the fee and get my sticker.

bike is in primo shape with no issues so i can't imagine passing nys inspection would be a problem.

anyone recommendations?

thanks in advance.

be well.

rob

The good, the bad, the ugly

and not necessarily in that order:

Before I got out of town yesterday my bike (V-Strom) stopped running. I was coming down off the Triboro into Harlem when the motor started stumbling. Fortunately I was able to keep it running long enough to make it to a safe parking spot, and that spot happened to be an MTA bus depot. The battery was dead.

The guys at the depot were friendly and helpful, making various suggestions about where I could leave the bike (though definitely not with them) until I could arrange for a pickup. After after several failed attempts to get the bike running, and then checking out potential parking spots, one of the guys says 'there's a bike shop just over there.' Why it took so long to think of that I don't know, but ...

So, hello Cycle Therapy. I've been there once before several years ago. What's the possibility of them checking it out? Not till Monday. So I end up buying a new battery. How much? 125 smakeroos! WTF? 'Well, I can probably give you a deal.' In the end I paid $120 w/tax. I felt reamed, but it was cheaper than getting my bike towed home (or having them work on the bike, for sure). I was able to ride the bike home before the new battery ran out of juice. Shoulda bought that AMA coverage after all.

Now ... what's wrong with the bike's charging system?

(apologies for the long post ... had to vent)

On a Sunday?



The DMV web site lists inspection stations. You can call around, maybe you'll find a combo auto shop and MC inspection station that happens to be open on Sunday but not likely.

Next time don't ask at lunch time on a gorgeous Saturday.

Question (24-2)/7 street parking?

Hey, NYCers: I'm pretty new to New York City--and to motorcycling when compared with all you geezers --currently living in Gramercy, a few blocks from Union Square. It's been been over a year since I've ridden and I'm getting ready to buy something like a KLR or DR650 which I plan on farkling until it looks as tough as Twisted Throttle's project KLR does.

I won't be commuting with it so it'll need to sit except when I'm cruising on weekday evenings or exploring on the weekends. Is it crazy to consider getting theft insurance and parking it on the streets instead of getting a garage spot until it starts snowing?

You are located in a good area for parking. Look around and see where other bikes park. Get a cover for your bike, and invest in a good lock.
