Yep, that pit of hell. I hit it dead on with the front wheel. Like dropping off a staircase.

Im over the Brooklyn bridge often, did I miss a new big pothole? Where is it exactly? Is it past the FDR exit? I don't get off at Centre street very often.

That´s a great advice! I just did it and worked pretty well.
I have been having some troubles starting the bike during this subzero temps, and was beginning to believe I was the only one having that kind of problem with the bike.

Thanks you all for the info.

I just love how they pull the whole "these are not the droids you're looking for trick" and the cops eventually say, "ok, go ahead".....

Those idiots aren't free because they stumbled into some magic rights-protecting mantra. They're free because some officers decided they had reached their personal level of crazy-fucking-shit they cared to deal with on that particular day.

(Or, they forgot to put new batteries in the taser.)

to all the nys motorcycle law experts...

is there a specified time frame in which I'm required to register and title a bike? said bike is privately stored and most definitely not being ridden currently. plan is to address those details come warmer weather.

i'm not a 'nys motorcycle law expert'. but i did sleep on the couch last night. go ahead and don't pay for registration or inspection until whenever you feel like it.
