Everyday from the county of Kings to Nassau County on my Concours. Even got kicked off of the Northern State Pkwy by a state trooper during that last Noreaster / snow storm...

He pulled you over and demanded you exit? Was he a Harley rider?


Commuter here, too!

interesting, must have been a crackdown today. cop (real not traffic) in a car drove up to my bike (parked), checked if there was a plate on the back (there was) and drove off.

Keep your park because we're going to continue to ride on the city streets & sidewalks and there ain't nothing you can do to stop us. Save the parks for the homeless crack heads.

Nycvinmoto is a mailing/distribution list. Google it. You can sign up for it. Mostly vintage talk.

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.

1200GSA as often as possible. Always a great way to start or end a day.

He asked if I was on Drugs. Made me get off on the next exit and told me to call a friend to pick me up. Weather was really bad...

I must say, I lost a bit of my taste for risking it on days with a chance of snow. After a get-off in the snow a couple years ago which resulted in a broken rib... Well, it's just not worth it to me anymore.

Has anyone not returned motorcycle license plates to the NY DMV after selling a motorcycle or registering it in another state?
I know you have to for a car or truck but on this link it says you dont have to, go to the "How to Surrender Vehicle Plates and Registration Items" 2/3 of the way down
