    my Brooklyn friend wants to take MSF course. Does he have to take MSF course only in NY in order to get licensed?

    This is what I found when I got to work this morning. One of the residents who lives on E. 11th street -- a rider I've met a few times -- had his vehicle hit while it was parked. You can't see it in the video, but the bike is firmly stuck until the car so much that the car suspension in the rear is jacked up.

    Looks like the car plowed into the scooter, and the bike (a Yamaha Vmax -- not a small bike), and smashed it under the car.

    If you used Kerosene and a quality chain lube instead of a penetrating, water dispersing solvent which will penetrate the O-Rings and dissolve the lubricant contained by them you wouldn't need anything to "keep it all off your rear tire." :deal

    I've never shopped for it in NYC but I've bought 1.5 liter cans of Kerosene in the paint department of Home Depot in UT and NV.
    I generally use Pedros Orange Degreaser now as I keep it for my bicycle as well.

    Hey all,

    I probably asked this years ago but have finally decided to get some painting done on my 2 slow (but rideable) project bikes.

    I'm looking for a good painter in the area, one where I bring the parts to them and they paint to my satisfaction - simple right? I don't want college student learning on his new paint gun, nor do I require museum finish - just a good job.

    Know anyone?


    Cheers, and TIA.


    ps - Just spent 4 days riding Texas Hill Country, I highly recommend it if you're ever going that way.

    This is great, exactly what I was looking for--thanks. Anyone care to endorse any of these in particular? Or tell me who to avoid?

    If it is Larry, that guy has the worst luck, I think he had it stolen a few months ago and then recovered it on Ave D, his scooter is always getting knocked over. Terrible to hear.

    I don't know the scooter owner, but the Vmax (Rider: "Max" -- easy to remember) I've picked up at least twice before after being knocked over:

    Not including my own bikes (which I've had knocked over 4-5 times), in the past couple years I've picked up at least four or five other bikes -- some more than a couple times.

    No, a friend of mine was looking at getting a stich, I told him he should definitely try one on first. So I thought I'd see if anyone local had one in his size.

    Nice, did you stay at the motorcycle cabin place up there? There is also a great little dive right next door to that with the best sign ever. It said fast food 300 miles that way (with an arrow).

    their 3lb, 16" long chicken fried bacon was literally to die for.

    Unfortunately I was on my way overloaded concours with a bald rear tire so I couldn't keep up with my buddies on their 1000cc superbikes.

    Hi Guys,

    Anyone have a recommendation for a welding shop in Brooklyn? I need to a have 1/4" nut welded onto a 1/8" (or so) 8"x8" piece of plate steel. I'd love to get it done tomorrow, Saturday, so any recommendations are appreciated.

    Cheers,
