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.
When i first got my bike, the previous owner had it inspceted, so i waited until the following year to have an inspection done. I thought that a bike inspection was going to cost the same as a car, i didn't know but never the less they asked for 10 and called it a day. Didn't know it was only 6 but was happy to not spend 35 or 40 or however much it is now for a car inspection. Since then, Indian larry or honda/yamaha for inspections. a few of my buddies bought bikes at honda/yamaha and they were happy and they did an inspection before a bear mountain ride few years back.
Checkpoint set up?
I thought you were implying that they we're glad they had done their inspections because there was a police check point set up to check inspections, paperwork, etc

Oh, no. They have their bear mountain run usually the last weekend of april, if i recall and if you're there early enough they offer inspections. Mine was set to expire in may so i had less then a month to get it done. And took advantage since i had to wait for the ride to begin anyway.
My bike's inspection is due this month. I go to Rapid Performance in Astoria. They charge me $10, but I gladly give it to them because they're always pleasant, change my tires for me, even though my bike is not the brand/type they normally work on, and have 2 cats to feed. That, and the fact they're like 5 blocks from home makes it worth it.
Any place to inspect a bike on a Sunday?
