So now it's early spring here in New York.The roads are in terrible condition as the government does less and less all the time and collects more and more in taxes and fees.Today for example , I'm out on the road,you know,the infamous LIE ( Long Island Expressway) I'm cruising along in the HOV lane at around 75 MPH just keeping up with the flow of traffic when out of nowhere in the center of the lane there is this hole in the road about 18 inched long 10 inches wide and 4 to 6 inches deep. I hit this thing going 75 and the bike went into a tank slapper ! Almost went down but I was on the the gas and managed to get it under control . Our taxes at work or is it our taxes lining their pockets.I feel lucky to be alive right now.This happened about an hour ago.Had to rant,I'm pissed !

Speaking of holes to throw money into, I hear that our governor Andy, Il Douche, just got a nice raise to be the highest paid governor in the U.S.

Now doesn't that make you feel better?

Hi Yamaguzzi,
Glad the hole in the road event ended up well. It could have been much worse.

After our recent ride around the South Island of New Zealand, (about 3500 Km) We were in awe of the excellent road conditions overall. The road conditions around Oz leave much to be desired.
Cheers
Tom

You are so lucky to live in a place that takes care of it's infrastructure .Here in 3rd world NY the roads are actually worse than dirt roads in some places . New York City and Long Island are the worst.It's scary riding here.

People from all over the world visit Niagara Falls. To get there you need to travel roads that literally look like Berlin the day after WWII.

I have an old photo somewhere of a road that crosses the state line from Pennsylvania to New York near Bradford, PA. A highway crew is putting up a new "Welcome to New York" sign. The road approaching the sign from Pennsylvania is nice and smooth, and right at the state line the pavement is broken up with potholes and chunks of asphalt strewn about.

But, on the other hand, our politicians are the best paid in the U.S.

YG, hope you didn't bend your rim.

The rim is OK , There was no problems with the handling of the bike after the event at all speeds .I was very lucky if I would have gone down on that road at 70+ MPH I'd be chop meat on the road and in a funeral parlor today
