WESTCHESTER MAN FOUND DEAD IN MEXICO AFTER DISAPPEARING ON MOTORCYCLE TRIP

GUERRERO, Mexico (WABC) -- A man from Westchester County who disappeared while on a motorcycle trip through Latin America has been found dead.

32-year-old Harry Devert's remains were found mutilated and in a plastic bag next to his abandoned bike on a dirt road in Guerrero, Mexico.

Authorities say 10 packages of what appear to be marijuana and cocaine were found nearby.

No one had heard from the former financial trader since January, when he sent a text to his girlfriend saying the Mexican military was escorting him out of a dangerous area.

News article says he took the MSF. Also, as Roy observed, if he made it from NYC to Mexico, he's no longer a "novice."

Anyway, I'm not a novice rider, but I'm a very novice traveller. I doubt I'm as well-equipped as he was to make he trip.


If you think that's it's a smart idea to travel by means of a vehicle you have limited experience with, in a region known for unprecedented violence, alone, I would not consider you someone who makes sound decisions. If he did it by sailboat I doubt he would get as much sympathy here.

I recall talking to someone in Israel, where there is the never ending and very tangible threat of having your bus or shopping mall explode or having a missile or mortar land on your head. He thought NYC was dangerous.

Then again I do brave the Boulevard of Death every day.

Danger, folks, is subjective.

Any of you so called intellectuals still want to argue about my original statement?

representing the unintelligent and speaking for myself. really? you don't find it inappropriate to even bring up your original statement at this time? his mother is on the forum and they are from this region. i do not recall her posting in this thread. doesn't mean she hasn't / doesn't on it.

This was a Robert Moses project built in the 1930s to provide beach/ park access to wealthy New Yorkers with cars. If you're up for a 1500 page book, then I suggest reading the Power Broker. Super interesting read describing Moses and how he shape NYC as we know it today.

Lost License Plate

So after getting my bike back into good running shape over the weekend, I promptly lost the license plate from the back. Pretty sure the ad hoc bracket rattled off while I was going over the Williamsburg Bridge.

After looking at the NY DMV website, it seems that I need to file a police report and have them certify the loss, before I can get a new plate.

Does anyone have experience with a lost/stolen license plate? Any tips or do I just need to throw away a bunch of time visiting my local police station and DMV?

Thanks.

Filtered right past a cop today at a stoplight. Thought I was going to get a ticket for sure... then... nothing. It was in Bushwick - cops just DGAF around here?

I'm pretty sure that if you lost it you can forgo the police report and go straight to the DMV. When my plate was stolen I filed a report and the only purpose that served, as far as I'm concerned, is that I didn't have to pay the fee for the new plate, which you will.

Yeah, there's a lot of DGAF, usually the farther you are from Times Square, the less fucks cops give. With that said, I always stop splitting any time I see the NYPD.

Hmm, I just got an email from Enterprise car share also saying that license renewal was yearly: "Secondly, we would like to remind you that as a member of Enterprise CarShare, you are subject to an annual driver's license validation." Hmm, is it just because of Enterprise? If so, I'll be dropping them.

Calling DMV.

Okay, so DMV confirms ... 8 year renewal, not yearly. Where the eye exam guy and Enterprise are getting their info I don't know.

Get the police form filled out first, then bring to DMV. Otherwise DMV will send you right back to PD. Took about an hour at the precinct including waiting for the civilian employee who handles these things to become available.

This. Be sure to tell the police you're positive the loss/theft occurred in their precinct otherwise they'll tell you to go somewhere else.

+1 ... I lost one from one bike last year and one for another bike this year. You need to have a form filled out at the PD. Last year I was able to get that form from DMV but this year they were no longer available. Make sure to bring your current registration with you. I did it at my local State Trooper station and it took about 10 minute. I imagine this 10 mintue task should equal about 60 to 90 minutes in NYPD time. Then bring that to DMV along with the registration form (MV-82 i believe) filled out appropriately for a replacement.
