Jersey...

Move to NJ. No motorcycle inspections anymore!

What a total waste of time it used to be. Going with a stupid helmet that had reflective tape all over it. Making sure turn signals worked, and the horn beeped. Can't believe the police state you have to put up with in NYC in regards to motorcycles. One would think that someone with a brain would realize commuter bikes make sense.

Police state? Cmon! In NYC you don't have to wear helmets, have a license plate, or be on 2 wheels at all times.

NYS VTL 69 (4) states "It shall be lawful [...] for any person to indicate the intention to turn a motorcycle while in the process of performing a wheelie (or 'willy') and standing upon the rear of the seating area by extending one leg and rotating the ankle in the direction of said forthcoming turn."

who rides motorcycles that need keys anymore?


Fulton Supply and hardware is INSANELY good. http://goo.gl/maps/oBFI I went all over lower manhattan before finding them, and it was like a mouthful of keys (breath of fresh air?).

They made keys for my KLR, 1980 Honda Cub, TW200, and 900SS. The guy there made a huge investment in motorcycle keys and can even do the special ducati Black (or Red, I forget) keys. His keys are expensive, so ask and try to deal before he makes them (if you like dealing!).

He wants to go north to the catskills and i'm wondering if you guys know any good roads or scenery to see up there. i was planning on taking the taconic up but willing take other suggestions if anyone has better ideas. maybe jump to vermont or mass? who knows we're two crazy college grads

edit: realized catskills are close, have to go further to make this trip 2 to 3 days

IMHO, and others will disagree, stick to east of the Hudson, I find most everything south of the Catskills on the west side pretty boring. Ride up rt 7 through kent and just putt around mass lower vt. I may have a place for you to camp outside hunter mt if interested pm me.



Thanks for key suggestions

I tend to agree. There are some good roads in Ramapo/Rockland/Orange/Sussex, and more if you head further west into PA. Being in Brooklyn, it's a long day trip to head to lower VT (much as I'd love to -- VT in general is a mecca of mine) but we tend to head up 117 past Mt. Kisco to Rt 22 and then just meander up local, county, and state roads north and west until we find a good middle point, have lunch, and head back.

I try not to have a plan in mind, set my GPS to 2D/North, and just go exploring. On a good day, there's little else on the road, and you can go for a good long time without a traffic light.
