    I am moving all my RZ project stuff up to my new weekend place and will be doing some work on them over the winter. Guess I owe Brad a ride on one when I finish one or two. I have about three and a half of them.

    Yes, I got lucky. My ex-wife had USAA through her dad's service and when we got divorced I was "grandfathered" in but I was told that if I ever drop them, I would not be able to go back, but not sure about that.

    Nathan's was still cooking in '90/91 (If I am recalling correctly).
    Marcus Diary I can't remember exactly, too many moons ago.

    I could believe this- the state farm agent gave me a lower rate after I submitted details of my Dairyland policy- but when it came for renewal, Dairyland by themselves offered me a lower rate so I stuck with them. I am sure agents of those insurance companies can extract some "deal" much easier...

    I've had Progressive on my '05 GS since I bought it in 02/11. Full coverage. I'm 42 and live in Queens, no accidents or tickets. I recently upped all my options to near max. I also have my renter's insurance with them. I think I'm paying $53/month.

    Bike nights at that Nathan's didn't last more than a couple of years beyond that, mostly due to the utterly effing ridiculous noise from the douchebag open header V-twin crowd, and to a somewhat lesser extent the predictable clowning around (burnouts, wheelies, stoplight drags). Before it got shut down altogether, The Oceanside cops turned into major league cock-holsters and were pulling obscenely puerile shit like writing tickets for too many motorcycles in a parking space.

    Two decades 'n change is still decades.

    Yes, now that you mention it the timeline is clearer to me. I do also recall that near the time your speaking of there were also some rather unpleasant confrontations between outlaw 1% MC clubs right there in the parking lot between Nathan’s and that little building which I think was a drive-thru bank. Matter of fact that was one the rare times I saw Nassau County cops (not Oceanside LEOs) appear in mass at one time, the other times were of course outside the Nassau Colliseum before a concert.
    Oh jeez, that was a longtime ago.
    Guess your memory is sharper than mine.

    I was documenting the issue at the time, and one of my photos appeared in Mark Kalan's paper, City Cycle.

    Now that I bothered to look it up, I see it all came crashing to an end in 1997.

    In the above shot, I believe it was actually Hempstead cops who set up what they called a "Nassau County Sobriety Checkpoint", but it had nothing to do with sobriety and stopped no cars at all. Then they went about enforcing a "local noise ordinance" of 72 dB, ignoring loud cars but stopping bikes wholesale. They would have bikes pull over into a nearby lot and if you were even riding near a loud bike you were screwed. All the tests were later deemed unenforceable and illegitimate but you know how that goes, not everyone has time to defend themselves.

    What a cluster fuck that was.

    Guess my memory is now better than I thought. :thumb
    I know I have photos somewhere in a bin from Nathan's in the early '90s that were taken with my trusty little Nikon point & shoot that imprinted the date on the lower righthand corner of every pic.
    Gotta love that NCPD Chevy Caprice 9C1 patrol car in the pic.

    The same year, 1997, ten years before the NYSP made motorcycle -only checkpoints an art, NJ hijacked the DOT's alcohol awareness funds to pay for motorcycle targeted stops in Jackson. And Westchester was targeting riders heading to the 'Dairy.

    I know what we need for heated gear.

    INDUCTIVE POWER TRANSFER.

    Either through the seat or handlebars.

    GET RID OF THE UMBILICAL!!!
