    A guy who parks in the same garage as me (Vaxmoto) had his Husaberg FS650c stolen last night from his apt in Sunset Park.

    It's a pretty rare bike, so I figured I'd throw this out there for him. If anyone hears/sees anything, shoot me a PM and I'll tell him.

    That sucks. Any better description of the bike or pics? I live in the area and always keep an eye out and pics of stolen bikes on my phone in case I see one. I got a guy his KTM back after seeing an ad on craigslist then...there it was parked on smith street near my house a few hours later..

    Starting a new job at 40th and Bway on Feb 11. I'll be commuting by train, but on the off chance I want to ride in to get a head start on a weekend trip, is there anywhere remotely convenient that wont cost an arm and a leg to park a bike near there?

    I saved the pic in my phone. I really hate that shit. If I do see it I'll call the cops straight away. There should be a "stolen bike" thread especially in NYC. Last summer I remember hearing about bike after bike being robbed. Feel like it's becoming more rampant. Bad economy??

    Pull your plate off man!!!! You can park anywhere you like.

    it's urban ghetto kids with no jobs and a rap sheet longer then the constitution. though it sucks to get a bike stolen, with the sumo some of the blame falls on the owner for street parking it, even with a chain those are very valuable and it only takes a few minutes with the angle grinder to make off with a 7+ thousand dollar bike. of course their going to steal it, the only question was when.

    Most off road helmets are available in child sizes. You may be able to get away with using an adult in XS but a child sized helmet is a better fit physically and lighter for the kid.

    :lol3 But seriously by the looks of it it's a common place to park. I guess that makes it reasonable eh?

    i park there most days. much nicer bikes there than mine; i'm not worried about mine getting stolen. there are some bikes there that are pretty clearly parked there 24/7. i still throw a disc lock on and make sure the steering column's locked.
    i did get ticketed there once, some douche PEO tagged every bike there for "sidewalk". i fought it by mail and sent in a bunch of photos showing that it's not a sidewalk and never heard back; i think they thew away my letter. still shows as owing $ in the system.

    Take off your plate and park anywhere:

    i got towed on Broadway (commercial only) with my plate off. effing close to $500 and a half a day getting it out of hock. i'd maybe park somewhere if i could sneak my bike between vehicles, but i'm spooked to park anywhere illegal that a tow can access now if i'm gonna be there for more than 1/2 an hour or so :/

    Let me clarify my previous statement. When I said park anywhere. I meant park anywhere within reason. I wouldn't park in front of St. Pats cathedral or anywhere obviously wrong. But like Schwartz said in between some cars down a side street.
