    Have driven past this place so many times, always wondered what to make of it.
    Now I know if I am ever in a pinch. Thanks for the heads up.

    I think the issue will be riding back, not riding in.

    My job is letting us out at 2, but I drove anyways. Maybe if we actually get snow on the ground I’ll have to take the XT out for a romp in it

    Haha I think you might have inspired me to try the electric fat bike out there instead. They’re supposed to work well in snow

    Snowing pretty hard in Flushing right now, so guess it will start sticking soon.

    Anyone else ride in to work today? Pretty easy going in Queens and Nassau. Some slush and snow piles that fell off peoples cars, but otherwise nothing of interest to report. No ice that I could see.

    Nope but the bike didnt give me the option (wouldnt start, CB550). I need to get me a ADV bike asap or a Panigale V4 (heat from the engine and exhaust should melt alls the snow right?!). In all seriousness, a G310GS is looking good right now.

    Let us know if you take a test ride...was looking to do so myself.

    I did. Pretty clean streets and the only thing of bother for me was the spray from cars in front of me....and the melting snow falling down the Manhattan bridge...

    Funny I never had that exp at Motogrrl. Though NY Honda pulled that shit on my friend- while at Kings cycle they tried to get me to replace brake pads with the before giving me the sticker. I changed the brakes myself instead and the pads hadn't even worn halfway!

    I think I have posted this before. But I am a former inspector and worked for shops for many years. Inspection stickers suck from a shops perspective. You get $6 and have to take time that could be better used elsewhere. BTW an inspector must road test your bike to check the braking. When was the last time anyone ever had their bike ridden during an inspection? They need to raise the inspection fee to make it worth the mechanics time and I bet you would have less issues getting them done.
    As a shop you have a few choices:
    Just do them as a courtesy and make it easy for anyone to get them (eg. Indian Larry)

    Use them a way to get more work, sometimes legitimate, sometimes not. I would always use them it up sell, but I never did anything that wasn't fair. If I saw your sprockets were worn enough to think about replacement I would tell you and price it. But sprockets and chains are not on the list, so you got the sticker.

    Make the hours prohibitive so it is hard to get an inspection. Kind of crappy, but also helps if you free someone during that time to do them and know not to schedule things then.

    Or the old "We are out of stickers" lie. There is NO WAY a shop would ever allow itself to run out of stickers. If you are a dealer, you cannot sell a bike without them.

    If you are curious about the motorcycle inspection list, motorcycles start on page 98 on the PDF https://dmv.ny.gov/forms/cr79.pdf
