Heads up

QUOTE=hsilman;18816373]so...

I have been riding for 6 years, never a flat tire. Now, 2 nails in the rear tire in under 1k miles/3 months.

completely ridiculous.[/QUOTE][/QUOTE]



This weekend I was walking through the intersection at Rivington and Chrystie (approach to the Manhattan Bridge), where two guys were sweeping up a pile of screws, nuts, bolts, springs, metal shards and shavings and other machine-shop type stuff that looked like it had just fallen out of two boxes from the back of their pickup.

I'm sure they did a fantastic job of sweeping, but all of us flat-prone folks might want to avoid that intersection for the next few months.

Hey guys, most of you know I was working on a heated gear group buy through a local dealer. Well, one BS excuse after another and I just picked up the rest of the remaining inventory.

Tucker was going to do a size exchange for me but it looks like the rep can't do them all.

Anyone want\need any of the following? Just in time for summer!

Size XL-Tall jacket liner
Size Small jacket liner
Size XL Carbon gloves
Size S\M (but fits a L) glove liner
Size M (but fits a L) Gerbing glove liner.
Size M socks (fits an 8-10)
a few accessories like panel mount ports, adapters, extensions, e.t.c.

NYPD protecting and serving

Someone's Vespa getting jacked on Baxter St. between Hester and Grand. Took the cops about 20 min to get the thing on there. Not sure if it was on the sidewalk or street, but it does look like it didn't have its plates on.

Well, you wouldn't call that moped ride rolling thunder, maybe mobile flatulence? Smoke and Mirrors?

Sweet! I swerve all over the place when I'm riding so I don't have a good lane to recommend.

But seriously, how great'd it be if you found it??

If you wouldn't mind awfully checking the sidewalks as well, I'd be much obliged to you.
