Nice Montauk sticker, Nef. Here's mine:


Is that KLR an 08? My buddy has the same bike and is having a hoot on it. Thinks it's a real improvement over the 02 which he had (stolen).

Thanks Jillian. I like your Montauk sticker better :) Yup that is an '08. She's getting a bit of a makeover now. Should be done soon. This KLR was stolen recently and as soon as I got her back I decided to give her a well deserved face lift :)

Hi friends,
my name is Filippo, I'm 34 years old and I'm Italian: excuse me for my bad american :-)
I'm a bikers like you, my motorbike is an Honda CB 1000 R, and I love the USA, NYC in particular: i live my holiday in the USA from 2004, and i will return from 25 february to 2 march 2012, in NYC, this time (the tenth) with my parents: my father also is a biker, on BMW R 1200 GS Adventure.

In the other times i see NYC and other city and States, in the East Coast, Central, South and West, but only by plain, train, bus or car: unfortunately, a motorbike rental is very expensive, right?

I ask You if in Manhattan or in the other boroughs of NYC there is a bar or a site withe many bikers and their motorbike, i see only a site of Hell's Angels in the East Village, but withouth any biker.

I'm very happy to be here with you, and I hope to know a lot of you!


P.S. I'm on FB, Filippo Sorghi: if you want add me in the your friens I'm happy!

Welcome, Filippo! :clap:

NYC riders hang out Tuesdays at the Ear Inn in Manhattan at 326 Spring Street. There's also the Sidewalk Cafe on 94 Ave. A - I'm not sure whether there's a specific night where people meet up, though.

Renting a bike can be expensive, but you can try and maybe you'll find a deal to get you on a bike for a day or two - if the weather is warm!
