How many NYC commuters here? I ride in 3-4 times a week from LIC on an XT225, a KLR650 before that. (I upgraded) I don’t see too many other dual sports so I was wondering who else is out there mixing it up with the evil yellow and black cars everyday.

Big Agnes Encampment

If anyone is looking for a new sleeping bag, I've got an ad in the Flea Mkt. I'd rather sell local, and avoid shipping, so you can subtract $10 from the price I listed...

"Dirt bikes are loved by many riders in Queens but not loved by police. Riding in the streets can be unsafe for both riders and pedestrians. Railroad Park may be the solution. Members of the Parks Committee are discussing turning the 16 acres of unruly terrain into a dirt bike park." - Motorcycle Safety School

Saw this thought I would share kind of cool

I was looking at a google map for a "forest"... are they talking about the triangle between Garrett St, 129th ave, and Bedell? That looks way too small for any sorta park to ride.
I don't know Queens very well, so if I'm way off base, that's why.

Northwest Randall's Island is a better place for a dirtbike park.

They should make it electric-only and watch sales take off.

looks like it to me. there's a big project complex across the street, lots of stolen dirt bikes in that area. better to let them do whatever in a small park then whatever on public streets.

He can only be talking about this--it seems to be in Queens Community Board 13 too.

I'm sure you will have to have a license and show insurance to ride there. This will probably do very little for the stolen dirt bike crowd. Maybe they will become legit in order to ride there but I doubt it.
