Hey, where's the guy...

...with the payday loans? I was thinking about getting a flat, and I rarely ever carry a spare tire on my bike.

Maybe we can meet up for a ride soon. Have you been to Union Garage on Union and Columbia at all?
I haven't been To Union yet, but I've been to Moto Borgotaro which is next door (Union garage wasn't built when I was there).
If you go to Vax, ask Justin (owner) if I'm there (Ron), and I'll say hello.

Tonight I'm heading over to the Radegast Bier Halle in Williamsburg.

I'm sure you've all been there before, as have I, but figured I'd share the fun.

They have a band called the "High and Mighty Brass Band", free admission, and per their website:

$5 Half-liter daily special beers
Free bratwurst with every liter of daily special beers.

Map: http://goo.gl/maps/amkjX

EDIT: Disclaimer - I have no idea if the band is any good

Why? Do you have something to hide?

Well, we certainly can't have that!

In light of that, I'll answer a question about EZ-Pass (probably mine, the memory ain't what it used to be. )
AFAIK from perusing the NY DOT site, you don't have to have a separate EZ-Pass for each vehicle, but you don't want to share one between a car and a bike as MCs get a pretty good discount on EZ Pass tolls. If you used your car transponder on your bike you'd be wasting money, and I'm sure they'd whack your PP if you tried the reverse.

I am rarely in the city. But when I do drive there it's a whole new world and am very apprehensive. Im sure I could get used to it just like I got used to the first turn in motocross. But in motocross I at least know the direction everyone is trying to go.
