Parts of ridgewood is being gentrified (parts close to the L train). Glendale is quieter of the two neighborhoods for the most part. Good german restaurants, bunch of new bars opened up. You have Atlas mall. A buddy of mine just rented a apartment on cooper ave, near atlas. Depends on what your needs will be. Plenty of mom and pop shops.
So any consensus for riding tomorrow? Rainfall amount seems decent (no snow projected east and south of manhattan) but it’s the possibility of ‘extreme’ winds that I’m worried about.
Folks, if anyone here has an r1200gs, pre WC, I just posted up all of my leftover accessories. I no longer have my GS. Happy to do local transactions
I have years of experience with this. Years ago I had to start taking a medication to curb hugely excessive production by certain of my glands (particulars aren't important here, either pertaining to the specific medication or the specific gland condition from which I was suffering). The medication is known to be very powerful, and has years of studies even back into the '80s detailing both the medication's successes and side effects. Some folks have nothing but the success, some have both the success and the side effects.
In my particular instance the medication was 100% successful in remediating the gland problem. However, the side effects were to severely wither the meibomian glands in my eyes, ravage my gut biome into near nonexistence, to strip my gut mucosal lining, and to set my autoimmune system into self-destruct mode. This daily misery continued up until my doctor started me on lifestyle and dietary changes, as well as daily supplements for leaky gut syndrome (leaky gut being an even worse problem than a dead intestinal biome and sandpaper eyes). To be fair, when he put me on the gland medication in the first place he knew I was going to suffer the terrible side effects that I did, but decided with me to tough out the entire length of the process because he also assured me the medication's many side effects could be completely healed and restored at the end of the process.
He was indeed right about all of it, and I am indeed glad I went on the medication all those years ago (I truly needed it), but the road to recovery was literally almost as miserable as the gland condition that started all the hell in the first place.
Final thought: your autoimmune system can go wonky on certain meds, so take that into account before just popping some pills. My journey from fixing the gland problem to then fixing the problems that arose from the medication that fixed the gland problem was six looooooong years of daily--DAILY--agony, agony both physical and emotional. Was it all worth it? A resounding yes, yes, yes!!! But without a doctor that was already intimately familiar with the details of the entire process I would have killed myself a long time ago, just to make the pain stop.
If your doctor is naught but a prescription writer, and isn't absolutely familiar with the details of your specific case and its treatment processes, and isn't absolutely committed to helping you through the ENTIRE process of healing AND restoration, then DON'T TAKE THE MEDICATION.
Exactly. In my humble opinion, this is really the only way to truly enjoy living in NYC.
I rode in from Nassau this morning...
And how was it?
Actually wasn't that bad just a little windy over the cross island overpass.
Rode in, thanks to Petzl's live weather update! Thanks!
It felt like very light rain- just go out better prepared and with your gear on. Putting your gear on in the windchill and wet snow is not fun. Plenty of grip. Some crosswinds on the Manhattan bridge but nothing too bad.
You guys are nuts
Actually, NSAIDS which include aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, etc., are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications that are extremely effective in the short term, and are relatively safe. No medication that has an effect is free of side-effects, but over-the-counter stuff is pretty safe.
That being said, getting advice on the internet about medical situations is problematic, because there is no vetting of the information.
Anecdotal stories tend to support one's own bias about doctors and medications, but otherwise are not very helpful to the lay person.
That all being said, it is pretty safe to have a one-time steroid injection into a sticky tendon. And that is supported in the medical literature with peer review, prospective, randomized studies.
For instance, with trigger finger:
I was lucky to fall into the 57% with my own finger, but that is anecdotal. Nice to avoid surgery, though, and never have to take any medication.
Absolutely. Very glad it worked out so nicely for you.
I think the winds are a whole lot worse now. This is the part I was worried about, and why I chickened out and took my Jeep.
Did see a fellow two wheeler heading west this morning in the LIE’s HOV lane and made me sad..
Outside my building there was a bike on its side.
Didn't help that he parked like an idiot - kickstand on the uphill side of the bike.
No muffler. Serves the fucker right.
Be safe out there, kids.
I don’t even think it’s legal to charge more than $6.
It's not legal.
It's bad enough some places screw around and try to sell you shit. I want to support local moto companies. Motogrrrl pulled that crap on me one year – $12 inspection, and nit picking about tread depth. It's just not right.
