The easiest way (only way) if you don't have an auto clutch... Put it on the ground in front of the bike, ride off in first, then grab it on your way by. Clutchless shifting from then on, and swing it back and set it down more or less stopped once you're going under 5 mph. You should have to do this fewer than ten times on the way to EWR if you manage your speed to time traffic lights. Good luck!

It's amazing what you can strap to a back seat with bungee stuff. A carry-on size roller bag fits just fine unless you're riding an R6 or something...

Tonight's Memorial for Eddie ADV_NY...

Thank you everyone who came out to the EAR tonite in honor of Eddie Gallagher. It was great to see such a terrific turnout and I know that Suzanne appreciated seeing it. And a special thank you to those of you who made donations for Eddie's wife Suzanne.

Those of you who looked for me to make a donation and could not find me, or promised to make donations via PayPal tomorrow, please use the PayPal page on the NYMSTF web site to make your donations:

http://nymstf.org/support.asp

Make a note/comment in your payment about the intent of the donation (i.e. "for Suzanne", "in memory of Eddie", etc.) so we don't have any book-keeping confusion. And sorry to go whip-cracking but please try to do this within the next day or so, so I can wrap up the funds and present them to Suzanne.

All the best,
-Brad

There's a PDF at the bottom of the page for EWR. In case you can't open it, the gist of it is: "Look for signs toward Daily Parking P4; once you get there you'll see signs for motorcycle parking. Park, take the (free) AirTrain and be happy".

Terminal C shouldn't be more than a 10 minute wait + travel on the train, so I don't think that it's worth trying to park right there when you have free, legal parking available.
Thank you.

What kind of bike? No top case or rack? Must you have a suitcase or would a messenger bag work?

GIVI makes a semi decent looking suitcase shaped case.

Honda 599 with a givi top case. In the past Ive considered trying to fly using the top case as a suit case. Would TSA have any problems?

I've done it numerous times. Just dont forget to take out prohibited items before you leave home.

I have but it's annoying and cumbersome. Better to use a liner for the case or a duffel on the back seat. Not all overhead bins will accommodate a GIVI case and it ends up getting scratched up. Especially if you check it in. Also, I usually put a key on a little rope taped to the box in case TSA wanted to look inside. Each and every time the damn key was broken. Good thing I brought a spare.

Argh! May be meeting up with a friend after work but only have one helmet (THIS IS WHY I HATE HELMET LAWS). Anyone have a helmet (ideally size M) I can borrow near Madison Square Park? I could pick it up at lunch time.

If not, I'll work out something fun to do that doesn't involve a motorcycle.
