I know when I got my new reg renewal in the mail last week for 08 stciker (on plate) via mail from DMV, it had a paper to fill out with the #NUMBER on your inspection sticker and the date it expires.
It's cool I just think the thing is super immature. Not directed at you, but in general.
VIN's are how they fuck you. Want to know the inspection sticker trick in terms of your registration so they can't tie it in? There are actually two, one is have your inspections expire in May, write the old sticker number when you mail in your registration and get it reinspected on May 1st. The easier trick is throw out the renewal notice and do it online, they do not ask for an inspection sticker if you renew online.

I renewed online.

When you do it this way, there is a box you have to check acknowledging that you have a current NYS inspection. No need to enter a specific sticker number.

Hi Perry,
I think Richbebe is right. My inspector only writes down my info in his " Composit" note book. There is no real cross check with DMV but I can check on that.
In Midtown I worry more about doormen than Brownies.
The vin # tickets are your fault. If you keep the bike clean they can read your stuff. A healty petroleum based eco-system growing on the bike can prevent these unwarranted searches and siezures.
Grunge on Brother. Hope to see you at Matchless.

it appears that the answer to the sidewalk parking issue is:



on a number of issues, not least of which is how lazy/mean a parking attendant wants to be.

"at your own risk" is the only univeral advice. i just donno where i'll post the Muni-Meter ticket on a bike, someone can steal it easily, or it can blow away...so i park on the sidewalk.

I've always wondered about those things. Very easy for a cager to grab it and put it in his/her windshield. I asked a brownie about it and their response was that they don't ticket bikes. (This was last year. We all know this is the year of NYC moto revenue). In fact, I even called 311 and they sort of sputtered about it. Couldn't give me a real answer about where to put the ticket on the bike. So, I figure you have to just hold on to the receipt. If you get a ticket, you can mail the ticket and the receipt to get out of it. But I've been ignoring the muni-meters altogether. I figure, if I get 2 parking tickets a year, I got a great deal on parking in NYC. So far, I haven't gotten any.

I'm sure I just jinxed myself and will get a ticket this weekend...

I do not buy them, I just park and walk away. I was told by a parking judge that they will automatically dismiss any ticket written to a motorcycle for failure to display a receipt. I was also told that "brownies" are told not to ticket motorcycles for not having receipts. I park on heavily ticketed Austin St. in Forest Hills a few times a week and never got a ticket.
If you do get a ticket, calim you had the receipt and it was taken via the internet. Do not waste your time going to fight it, do it online.

Hey OBB, I guess it's not clear exactly what they can and can't do. I have seen the bar code readers, but the ticket may be bogus, either way if I sent my inspec # in with my new reg then I'm sure there's a way to connect them inside the DMV, at least till I get another inspection.

I used to cover my VIN with heavy chrome tape, then cover it in flat black, but they eventually pulled it off. So I removed the rivets to the VIN and that settled that...

I also think there's a difference in the amount of tickets people who only commute into manhattan will receive compared to people who park them here 24/7.

I never seem to get them during work/normal hours, it's usually at night or at odd wknds, etc.

See ya at Matchless!

Hey Perry,
I was not kidding when I said let it get dirty,
Read the following section from the Penal law. A prosecution is unlikely. The real problem is that during the summer riding season. Yes some people have a riding season. When bike thefts are very high (or like two years ago when there was a ring stealing bikes on order for the local and international market) The Auto crime unit will check or have checked by trafic enforcement, street cops, neighborhood watch etc to see if there are matching numbers or signs of missing or tampered with numbers. I have had clients bikes towed and impounded as evidence pending an ongoing investigation. They all got the bikes back but it was a royal pain in the ass. Put the vin back on put on a protective coat of grease and let nature take its course. If they clean it eat the ticket.
I also had a problem with a client who bought a bike at a police auction fixed it up and was latter arrested for possesion of a stolen vehicle. They sold it and gave him title but never removed it from the original stolen vehicle hot sheet. Got the bike back sued for false arrest but spent the night in lockup,
got the tour of central booking and got to meet the Judge and if he wasn't a riding buddy would have gotten to pay a lawyer for the priviledge.
Aint life grand
See you at matchless

When I was younger and used to think, flashing red lights, meant down shift and gun it, I used to spray my license plate with chain lube. Ride around and it gets illegible but looks natural.

Was using that trick for 3 years with my car but then got a notice with my last renewal saying how their computer shows my vehicle hadn't been inspected and I need to send it in by mail with a valid inspection sticker number. I don't think they care about bikes though.


BTW- Highway Patrol doing alot of enforcement for lane splitting on the GCP , both directions, near the gas station by the Clearview. Saw it during the afternoon rush hour, had about 20 bikes stopped.
