    I park on 36th between 1st and 2nd almost daily. Mon-Thurs 10 to 11:30 is alt side parking though. But I pull my plate those days no issues even though traffic cops are all over that corner:evil

    So, are they cutting back on alt side sweeping in your areas? In front of my place on 181st/Riverside they changed all the signs over the last couple of weeks from Mon/Thurs and Tues/Fri to Monday and Tuesday.

    You do realize you can still get a ticket w/o your plate and that one day you will be towed?

    Nightmare for somebody. Hopefully just went a couple of blocks to the tow pound on the west side.
    Looks like he did have a plate?

    Yeah, crappy cell pic doesnt show it too clearly but it did have a NJ plate. There were 2 trucks but I couldnt tell if there was a 2nd bike they were going to tow.

    Howdy all,

    My girlfriend is taking her road test in Red Hook on Wednesday morning. We practiced some figure 8's and circles, and she did a great job.

    Any pro-tips? What's something she could fail for?

    EDIT:

    1. Will she be able to take the test on a bike with a Michigan Historic Plate?

    2. If not, can she take it on a bike on a NYC Moped plate (I'd re-register it tomorrow, it's a Honda Cub with gears and pegs).

    3. She's taken the MSF course on a full motorcycle (the Suzuki GZ250, which can exceed 40 mph), but the Cub doesn't exceed 40 mph. I would rather pay moped registration rates, but I don't want her to have to retake the test to ride a 40+mph motorcycle.

    4. She doesnt have a car license. She has taken a 5 hour driving course, the MSF course, and then this road test. What am I missing here!?

    RELEVANT DOCUMENTS:

    Road test requirements

    NYC DMV Motorcycle License info

    New York License Endorsements


    Why do we all live here again?!?!?

    I thought you got your license when completing the MSF course.

    LGA Motorcycle Parking

    just wanted to mention i recently got back from a 3 week trip out west. left the klr at the parking lot, uncovered, unchained with key in ignition (J/K on one of the four :)and it was just as i left it when i got back. YMMV seems the thieveries like the littler klr's more AMHIK. was no other bike there when i left and one other there when i returned.


    only issue i had was with getting to and from it. found a cab (few and far between when and where i needed it). was misinformed as to where the parking was when i came back (yes i forgot where i parked my bike) eventually got to it and home.

    P7 is the parking lot that it is by, by the way. Info that is useful if using the designated parking.

    From lga website;

    When connecting within LaGuardia, use the convenient shuttle bus service. Take the free Route A (all terminals) or Route B (all terminals except for Marine Air Terminal / Delta Shuttle) courtesy buses to transfer between parking lots and terminals.

    Route A buses run every 10 to 15 minutes from 4:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. and Route B buses run every 10 to 15 minutes from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m.

    Question about parking?

    If you have any questions related to parking at LGA, please call the parking operator at (718) 533-3850
    To reach the Impound Lot of the Port Authority Police call (718) 533-3900
    For parking-related customer service comments and/or
    complaints call: (888) 250-8271

    Well she doesn't have a car license. She had to take a 5-hour course (MV-278?) and at least a road test, but she took the MSF course for good measure.

    I'm wondering I guess if she took the MSF course on a motorcycle then she could come to the road test on a limited use motorcycle.

    Here's what I'm talking about--look in the second column under license restriction codes. "I1 Limited Use MCY MAX 40 MPH"

    If you complete the MSF course you get a certificate that you bring to be DMV and they issue a full M license. Of course first you need your learners permit before MSF. The DMV makes no mention Of the 5 hour course if going the MSF way.

    Not in this case, since she doesn't already have a car license (From NYS Motorcycle Licenses Page)


    To qualify for the waiver you must:

    Be 16 years of age or older, and
    Hold a valid NY license (Class A, B, C, D, DJ or E), and
    Hold a valid class M or MJ permit.
    Present the approved New York State specific Basic RiderCourse completion card issued by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation within two years of course completion.


    So she needs to take the road test (because she doens't have a valid license already). I want to know if she can take it on a limited-use motorcycle and then still use the MSF waiver to upgrade to a full M (without class A, B, or C limited-use motorcycle restriction) license. The Cub is on Michigan historic plates and I don't really want to go to the DMV today to register it in NY.
