I'm thinking that OCC would be a good launching point if he's headed to New England (or coming back). I mean, it's only an hour and half away at the most if there's no traffic. It looks like he's hitting Boston at some point.

I've never been to Indian Larry's and don't know if his shop is even around. It would be good if you could research it for him.

That is what I was thinking about OCC it is a good stepping point, but silly to ride up and back unless he wants to. It is his day.
Of course I was just working in my backyard and garage and the skies opened up. If it doesn't stop raining I will most likely skip Williamsburg but I am there all the time so I can check it out another day. I know they have a shop just not sure what is there.

hehehe....no. I had my DR650. That XT will be next on Alfred's list to try. I love the bike so far although I haven't taken her out as much as I'd like. The day at Thomaston Dam she did great!

Anyone know where I can get a DID chain link over the weekend? I broke the securing clip and don't have another one. Most bike shops I know are closed on Sundays.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I've got a couple of 520 master links and one 530. Come get it in the Bronx if you need it right away. PM me for details

Yeah I probably have a few as well. The clip is almost always universal for all 520, 525, and 530 chains.

Coming to NY. Need a little help

Hey New York Riders

I'm coming to your city on really short notice and I'm looking for a little help. I'm flying in to pick up a new to me GS 1200 in Manhattan. Here is where the trouble starts, I'm on a serious time budget. I get off the plane in Newark at midnight. I have to get over to the 400 block of east 77 street for as early in the am as possible and get the paperwork done, sent to the border and get out of the city. I only have 4 days to cover 4000 kilometers and a border crossing to get back home. Any ADVers out there that have a couch I can crash on close to the area I need to be in?
I'd love to see a bit of your city, especially since I'm a firefighter up here in Edmonton Alberta but I don't think I'm going to have the time. Barring that possibilty can anyone suggest a hotel close to where I need to be thats not going to cost me an arm and a leg?
Thanks for any help you can provide
Rob

Edit
Ive been reading your thread and I've got to say it sounds like I'm gonna need an escort out of the city too. ;)

I've been speaking to Rob via PM and my place and situation doesn't really work for him. I need to be up at 5:30am for work and Queens adds some time to his commute. One of YFF's that works nights or is off on Monday should meet him, take him out, and let him leave NYC hungover. Also if he brings a t-shirt or two from his department I am sure you can find a house that would love to trade shirts with him.
Not that I am a firefighter, but I traveled with a friend who is one and he always trades t-shirts.

Thanks RichBeBe,

I know I've got some dept shirts here I could stand to loose.
Don't count on getting me hung over though, I think its been almost 10 years since I've had a drink......
