2023.05.24 16:24 MidToUpperAgitated Check Point for Inspection and Registration.

My understanding was that both inspection and registration were not citable until 4 months after they were expired. I'm finding sources that back me up on this, but... maybe there is someone here that knows better. Is this correct?
My wife was pulled over at a check point in Frederick County today, because her inspection expires at the end of the month. She got the run around with the deputy eventually pulling the, "Well, I'll give you a break today." How about knowing what you're enforcing?
Edit: Here's what I found - "No law-enforcement officer shall stop a motor vehicle due to an expired vehicle inspection sticker until the first day of the fourth month after the original expiration date. No evidence discovered or obtained as the result of a stop in violation of this subsection, including evidence discovered or obtained with the operator's consent, shall be admissible in any trial, hearing, or other proceeding."

2023.05.23 01:20 svet_sedov SVET Markets Weekly Update (May 15–19, 2023)

In Week 20, the Empire Index decreased, building permits deteriorated, and retail sales were rising not fast enough. However, traders, driven by technical momentum, disregarded economic fundamentals and pushed NASDAQ (o:12327, c:12657) higher by 2.7 percent. In contrast, BTC (o:27395, c:26890) experienced a rational decline of 1.8 percent.
Notable Macroeconomic Updates:
NY Empire State Manufacturing Index (May): -31.8 percent (fact), -3.75 (consensus), 10.8 (previous); Building Permits (April): 1.416M (fact), 1.437M (consensus), 1.437M (previous); Retail Sales (April): 0.4 percent (fact), 0.8 (consensus), -0.7 (previous); Initial Jobless Claims (May/12): 242K (fact), 254K (consensus), 264K (previous); Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Index (May): -10.4 percent (fact), -19.8 (consensus), -31.3 (previous). World’s Updates:
India: vehicle sales surged by 13.4%; Germany: the Indicator of Economic Sentiment dropped to -10.7; South Africa: Country’s retail trade fell 1.6% YoY; Japan: the annual inflation rate jumped to 3.5%; South Africa: building permits slipped by 18%; Indonesia: car registrations decline of 28.8% YoY. On Monday, the NY Fed reported that business conditions had deteriorated far beyond expectations. However, traders, focusing on technicals, managed to push the NASDAQ (o:12327, c:12343) slightly higher, while BTC (o:27395, c:27418) remained unchanged.
New York business activity dropped sharply per May Empire State Manufacturing Survey. General business conditions index fell by 43 points to -31.8. New orders and shipments plunged after previous rise. Delivery times shortened somewhat, inventories contracted. Employment and hours worked edged lower for fourth consecutive month. Prices increased at similar pace as last month. Capital spending plans turned sluggish. Businesses expect little improvement in conditions over next six months.
Other Markets Updates:
India: April 2023 passenger vehicle sales in India suddenly surged by 13.4% to 313,278 vehicles, rebounding from zero growth last month, per Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) data. Yearly, April recorded highest-ever sales growth of 12.9% for passenger vehicles in that month.
On Tuesday, the retail sales data issued by the Census Bureau disappointed traders, which dragged NASDAQ (o: 12393, c: 12343) and BTC (o: 27060, c: 26933) down.
Retail sales in the US rose 0.4% mom in April, bouncing back from two months of declines, but below market forecasts of a 0.8% increase. Motor vehicle and part dealers’ sales were up 0.4%. Other increases occurred in building material (0.5%); food services (0.6%); retailers (3.6%). However, gasoline station sales unexpectedly fell 0.8%, and food store sales declined 0.2%. Clothing (-0.3%); electronics (-0.5%); furniture (-0.7%) also experienced decreases. Core retail sales, which exclude automobiles, gasoline, building materials, and food services, increased faster at 0.7%, indicating sustained consumer demand.Other Markets Updates:
Germany’s ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment dropped to -10.7 in May, the lowest in five months, much worse than the expected -5.3. These declines partly stem from expectations of future interest rate hikes by the European Central Bank and concerns about a potential default by the United States, leading to increased uncertainty in international economic development. Consequently, financial market experts anticipate a further worsening of the already unfavorable economic situation in the next six month, mentioning the potential for a recession in the German economy.
On Wednesday, stocks edged higher on technicals, disregarding the Census Bureau permits report. NASDAQ (o: 12388, c: 12500) added one percent, while BTC (o: 26669, c: 27385) followed with a 2.3% increase.
Building permits in the US dropped by 1.5% to 1.416M in April. This is the second month of decline, falling short of the expected 1.437M permits. Reasons include higher interest rates and rising consumer prices. Permits decreased in the Northeast (-23.6%) and Midwest (-15.2%), but rose in the South (4.3%) and West (3.8%).
Other Markets Updates:
South Africa: Country’s retail trade fell 1.6% YoY in March — the fourth consecutive month of declines — following a 0.7% drop in April and missing estimates of a 0.7% decrease. The power crisis impacted food, beverage, and tobacco retailers (-6.6%). However, textiles, clothing and footwear goods saw a grow (6.3%).
On Thursday, jobless benefits decreased more than expected, while the Philadelphia Index rose, indicating better economic conditions and an increased probability of a rate hike. Nonetheless, NASDAQ (o: 12,513, c: 12,688) added 1.4 percent based on technicals, while BTC (o: 27,237, c: 26,734), which still lacks volumes, retreated 1.8 percent.
The BLS reported that jobless benefits fell to 242K in the week ending May 13th, below the expected 254K and down from an 18-month high of 264K. This indicates a tight labor market, potentially providing the FED with room for further rate hikes. There were significant decreases in claims in Massachusetts (-14.0K), Missouri (-2.3K), and New Jersey (-1.1K).
In May, the Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Index rose to -10.4, marking the slowest pace in four months and showing improvement from April’s -31.3. It also exceeded market expectations of -19.8. New orders (-8.9 vs -22.7) and shipments (-4.7 vs -7.3) increased, while employment experienced a decline (-8.6 vs -0.2).
Other Markets Updates:
Japan: The April’s annual inflation rate jumped to 3.5% from March’s 6-month low of 3.2%.
South Africa: March’s building permits passed in largest municipalities slipped by 18% from a year ago to ZAR 9.1 million, following 12.7% rise in the prior month. The most affected sector is non-residential buildings (-52.5%). Residential segment decreased for much lesser extent (-4%).
On Friday, traders were expecting Jerome giving them clues on the markets’ direction. It didn’t happen, so NASDAQ (o:12709, c:12657) and BTC (o:26909, c:26890) just ranged.
On the “Perspectives on Monetary Policy” panel before the Thomas Laubach Research Conference, Powell said, “We face uncertainty about the lagged effects of our tightening so far, and about the extent of credit tightening from recent banking stresses.” Essentially, this means that the FOMC chooses to sit on the fence instead of acknowledging its responsibility for gradually driving the country’s financial system into the gutter.
Other Markets Updates:
Indonesia: In April 2023, car registrations in Indonesia experienced a year-on-year decline of 28.8%, resulting in a total of 58,911 units. The previous reading was +2.6%
Week 21, with FOMC Minutes coming out on Wednesday, Core PCE (previous: 0.3%, consensus: 0.3%) as well as Durable Goods Orders (previous: 3.2%, consensus: -1%) on Friday, is expected to be driven by technical factors. These factors are mostly bullish for NASDAQ, with a possibility of a correction in the 12.7K — 12.8K zone. The upcoming week might also be a period of recovery for BTC, which, however, is still lacking attention from new buyers.

2023.04.26 10:10 stKKd European Certificate of Conformity

About to buy an already EU imported and licensed C7
And trying to figure out how to get an European Certificate of Conformity (COC)
I'm buying the corvette in another country of the European union but owner doesn't have this document which is required for registration in my country.
So there is this official website to get the COC:
They say about the Corvette:

How to retrieve if the vehicle is European Type Approved?

European Type Approved vehicles are recognizable by the European Type Approval Number mentioned right under the manufacturer’s name on the manufacturer’s plate/label. The European Type Approval number starts with the letter “e” followed by a one or two digit country code number (e.g. “e4” or “e13”) and a combination of number segments which are separated by asterisk (*) and slash (/) separator / delimiter characters (e.g. e13*2001/116*0260). Please see the example below of a manufacturer’s plate / label of a European Whole Vehicle Type Approved vehicle.

Example of a Manufacturer’s Label General Motors Corporation


But on the C7 the sticker does not have that number (e13*200......). So I'm quite confused on what to do.
Anybody gone through this before?

2023.04.23 04:39 boneisle Neighbor's Complaint to the City Backfires

We have a next door neighbor who does not like us, for no apparent reason. This is a vacation home for them and we have never said a single word to or interacted with them ever. They seem to think we live in an HOA, which we don't, and call the city code enforcement on us over their perceived shortcoming in our lifestyle. We let our yard pretty much grow wild whereas theirs is meticulously landscaped and professionally tended. We have six foot walls between houses so they can't see much of anything in our yard without trying. Such as climbing a ladder to take pictures to send the city to lodge a complaint. The city investigates, finds nothing wrong and closes the complaint. The last complaint happened a few months ago when we were doing some legally permitted construction. The neighbor calls the city, they come out and find no issues. Apparently he was upset with this outcome and he made more complaints, of which only one was "valid". He complained about our vehicle parked on the street not having a current registration sticker. Parking enforcement came out and put a sticker telling me to fix the problem or move it within 3 days. Apparently, my current license plate sticker had been scraped off. While out front, I noticed my neighbors new motor home parked in front of his house. It's illegal in the city to park a motor home on the street. Normally, I could not care less about it, but this seemed like an opportunity I couldn't pass up. I asked the parking guy, what about that thing? He said there was no complaint about it, so I said, I am complaining. I watched as he took pictures and wrote out the parking ticket/tow order. I then watched as, about an hour later, the tow truck eagerly hook it up and whisk it away to their impound lot.

2023.04.12 14:05 DeskFan203 Boat registration

EILI5 please. Want to make ONE trip to DMV with all of the info. Don't want to call bc...DMV.
I've scoured the DMV site and am lost. I am an information professional who looks stuff up for other people all day...and cannot help myself. (Go ahead with the shoemaker's daughter jokes...)
This isn't our first boat but it's the first we've had to register alone and in a long time (long story)
Bought boat last year from private seller. Have her old registration signed over to be the bill of sale. Trailer wasn't registered but we bought that too, all 1 price.
If it matters: approx 17ft, outboard motor, 2007, Bass Tracker from BPS. Propeller, runs on gas.
TLDR: what do we need to do to get the trailer and boat registered? What paperwork/info to bring? Trailer needs a plate; boat needs info changed.

2023.04.12 02:24 WildRookie Trip report for Calala Island

Edit: Photos! https://imgur.com/a/ukmUrLT
My wife and I just returned from Calala Island after a 5-night stay on points.
Booking: I was fortunate to catch someone else canceling a 3-night stay, then worked with Hyatt/Calala to add a 4th and eventual 5th night to my stay before traveling. I've spent almost 2M Hyatt points so far, and this 200k was among the best redemptions imaginable. Ventana, Miraval, Andaz Maui, Hana Maui, PH St Kitts, Zilara Cancun, Zilara Rose Hall, and more just fall well short.
Let us get the paperwork out of the way: Nicaragua's govt is extremely non-responsive. We had some questions about entry requirements w/ US permanent residence and spent weeks trying to get someone on the phone at any of their embassies or consulates, emailed multiple consulates, and even went to one of the consulates in person and they told us to email the embassy. Emails were ignored; phones were never answered. Our best info came from the airlines, but even then it was misleading- you need either a QR code of your COVID shots or the physical card itself with all shots recorded. You will not be allowed on the plane (or through customs) with just a picture. Calala's staff told us the correct entry info, but verifying it elsewhere was a chore. Ultimately, with US Residence, you're treated the same as a US citizen for tourist entry, just $10 at the airport per person.
Additionally, some folks have objections to tourism in a country with Nicaragua's political situation. We minimized our time in Managua and spent points not cash for the resort. Be aware, and make your decision from an informed position.
Note that Calala has a 90-day cancellation policy that'll ding you $3k if you cancel in that window. I would recommend making your plans ironclad before that window.
Calala sets you up with a taxi driver in Managua, Nestor. Nestor meets you at the airport and helps you get sorted, but note that Nestor taking you to your hotel is a $10 or $25 fee each way depending on where your hotel is relative to the airport. As anyone who has been to developing countries can tell you, reliable taxi drivers are worth their weight in gold. Nestor also offers tours, taking you around Managua/Grenada if you so desire. We went up to Vulcan Masaya, which was a nice experience. Cash is king here, prices are in USD. We only stayed one night in Managua, so we didn't get to do too much else.
For the actual trip to the island, everyone is going to have a different experience because it's highly weather reliant. The 545am departure from our hotel wasn't challenging with Nestor picking us up, but it's still 545am. The domestic flight from Managua to Bluefields is something. We ended up with the 40-seater plane on the way there, but there's not really an official departure time or anything, they just kind of tap you on the shoulder when it's ready. Pay attention if the plane is landing at Bluefields or Corn Island first, you don't want to get off at the wrong one! Once at Bluefields, the taxi was plenty simple enough, the average American gas station is bigger than the Bluefields airport. A quick trip to the pier and we're on the boat.
The boat. It's a ~25ft open boat with an outboard motor. Most Americans will think of it as an oversized fishing boat. It has stabilizers, but ultimately you're at the mercy of the weather. We had sunny skies and less than 30 seconds of rain on our trip to the island, and sun with zero rain on the trip back. Plan on sun protection- sunscreen, either wear light pants or put sunscreen on your knees, a tight-fitting hat and an SPF shirt are all great ideas. Every guy on the island was sunburned on the knees before their first cocktail. You're going 30+kph on that boat, the wind will keep you cooled off. For our trip, in April the onshore winds are quite strong. In the lagoon (the first ~hour of the boat ride), the waters were quite calm.
But after our rest stop at Point Lagoon, going into the open ocean against relatively significant waves made for some significant bumps for the final ~45 minutes. I've spent plenty of time on boats so it didn't phase me, but my wife's hips/waist started hurting from the severity of some of the waves, and there were even a few occasions where the driver stopped the boat after a particularly hard hit so he could shake off the impact to his hand/wrist. The early morning ride back, with light winds at our back, was exceptionally smooth. Others are going to get higher winds, winds in other directions, downpours, etc. No predicting what weather you're going to get. If you get motion sickness, Dramamine isn't a bad idea, but we weren't affected. You can sort out a helicopter, but it's going to be ~$6k each way and you have to sort that out in advance. You can apparently split it with other guests if your times align and they want to split it. After leaving our hotel in Managua at 545, we got to Calala at about 11am.
Finally the island itself. All of that above wall of text was worth it. We already know we're not probably going to get a more luxurious vacation than this one was.
I'll get the negatives out of the way- Yes, there are bugs. No mosquitoes, but the primary problem is noseeums aka midges. As the name implies, they're too small to see, and you generally won't feel the bites until hours later. Half the island is a mangrove with tidal mud that they breed in. It's not a solvable problem. But it's definitely manageable. The provided bug spray worked relatively well for us, but we both were neglectful of reapplying it frequently enough. The resort-provided Hydrocortisone and an antihistamine took care of the itch, but still annoying. Additionally, I got a small number of bites in places that would've only been possible either while showering or while in the room, so be mindful of not waiting too long to apply bug spray after showering. The first few days were windy enough that they were kept at bay, but about day 3 the wind relaxed and our relaxed bug spray attentiveness non-metaphorically bit us.
The other negative is that November's Hurricane Iota's impact is still visible on the island. Most of the island has been rebuilt since, but there are still a handful of things that just take time to come back, like the beach erosion or a handful of minor maintenance items. The entire island was 3'+ underwater. It's incredible how little damage remains, but there admittedly is still some. The beaches will come back with time and the seasons, and the last of the maintenance issues will get sorted out. This didn't have a negative impact on our trip, we went through Harvey and other tropical storms so it's pretty easy for us to overlook hurricane-related items.
The good stuff, what you've been waiting for: literally everything else. The food, the drinks, the staff, the pool, the snorkeling, the activities, the rooms, the views, the seclusion. Note that while 2 couples left and 2 arrived during our stay, we never went above 8 guests or below 4 on the island. The time with 4 lasted only a couple of hours between one couple leaving and another arriving later that day.
Calala is a very rustic feel. Much closer to Ventana or a safari camp than it is to any Park Hyatt. It's very luxurious, but it's not fancy. You're in sandals/flip flops or barefoot walking in the sand the entire time. If you want refined or fancy, then Calala is not what you're looking for. Rustic, remote, tropical, and luxurious are all super applicable. Spring seems to be the ideal time to go to get a good balance of wind/sunshine.
We had the base room, and it was wonderful. Coffee every morning was brilliant, although Nicaragua is in the wrong time zone. Mountain time despite being east of the Mississippi. Sunrise at 5:30am and Sunset at 5:30pm were annoying, but a lazy coffee brought to our patio at 7am was still well-enjoyed. No air conditioning, but a light breeze was more than plenty for us. Wasn't attentive to it, but I'd say temperatures stayed in the 75-85F range. Wifi coverage of the island was solid, once you sort out connecting to each hotspot. Note that while we didn't have any cell service, Verizon wifi calling/texting was fully active the whole time.
In our 5 nights, we had a few overnight rain showers and had 2 dinners that had mildly rainy conditions from surprise downpours. The staff was on top of it, and it never impacted us negatively. The dinner pavilion is quite spacious, even with 4/5 tables occupied.
Breakfast wasn't on par with lunch/dinner as far as creativity, but still plentiful and tasty. Walk over to the "restaurant" sometime between 7 and 1030, and order whatever you want. Using the island-made coconut bread for French toast is pretty damned awesome. Similarly, lunch between 12 and 4 at the pool, again ordering whatever you want. I enjoyed basically everything, but the lobster skewers, ceviche, fish tacos, churrasco, and catch of the day were probably highlights of the lunch options. The pizza was surprisingly tasty, just a bit heavy for the weather. The lunch desserts were small but nice. Only note with breakfast/dinner- since they're cooking for a very small number of people over many hours, it does take a little while for breakfast/lunch to make it to the table. Order it from the bar and then leisurely work your way to the table.
Dinner had a set menu that changed every night- a Nicaraguan buffet, a surf&turf porterhouse with lobster tails for 2, a tasting menu, a coconut beef & rice dish, and a lobster & fish meal were our 5 nights. Every night had a small appetizer served with drinks at the bar, where all the guests and staff gathered for a little cocktail hour with some little activity. Sometimes it was a rum tasting, sometimes it was a staff member singing for us. The dinner desserts were nice, but not extravagant. They're still on the smaller side, and the dessert choices were clearly influenced by what's readily makable in a high-humidity environment. Mousse, no-bake cheesecake, flan, fried bananas, etc. On our 5th day, we saw a repeated dessert from our first day, so I think this is the most limited part of the kitchen.
The drinks are great. My wife loved the fresh coconuts, while I rotated through the cocktails. There's a daily special, but most of the daily specials are always available. The Ocean Spray, Dark Passion, and Day at the Beach daily specials were particular favorites, but my wife and I prefer the sweeter side of drinks. Other guests loved the espresso cocktails, bitter coffee drinks are just not my favorite.
For daily activities, my wife loved the spa and raved about Karen the masseuse (spa not inclusive, but very fairly priced). I chose to properly use my time on a private island and just floated the pool with a book and cocktail for a few hours a day. We did the snorkeling around the island and also the island hopping (island hopping definitely overdo the bug spray! It's literally abandoned islands). With the snorkeling, the staff keeps watch from a boat, making sure you don't get into any trouble. I'd recommend bringing a swim shirt along if you want to do a lot of snorkeling, just cut off the sunburn early. There were some other activities available, but the only one we wanted and didn't really get was stargazing because the moon was way too full. Most of the island lights are off at night, so if the moon cooperates the stars should be very visible- if you're not too tired to stay up.
The staff was incredible, Claudia and Leon, the GMs, were omnipresent and always reachable by whatsapp, but the front-of-house staff- Bayron, Mick, Lon, Ivon, and Cito were incredibly attentive. Remembered our drink orders/preferences and very on top of everything. We had a whatsapp chat just to request items, so even if we were in our room a quick text was all we needed for anything we wanted.
An oddity that we noticed- while we were there, everyone was either British or American. All 3 of the American couples were there on points- 3, 4, or 5 nights. All 3 of the British couples were there on weeklong stays from charity auctions where they paid >$2000/night. I'm guessing there's probably some feedback loop of stays donated to charity at X valuation looping around to cause Hyatt's point redemption system to return $2500+/night from corporate, but at least in our experience, it tracked with what others were saying that few paid the raw sticker price. I'm guessing it does happen for people adding 1 or 2 nights, but just an oddity.
As for the length of stay, 3 nights is not enough. Day 1 you're getting to the island slightly before noon. With the introduction with Claudia/Leon and a shower, you're not really doing much before noon on day 1. Needing to be ready for the boat at 5 am means packing the night before and you're really getting less than 60 hours to enjoy the island. 4 nights is ok, but 5 nights felt perfect. 6 or 7 might start to feel gratuitous, but if you're taking advantage of kayaking, snorkeling, island hopping, fishing, and everything else you can definitely fill up your time. Plus, a constantly refilling cocktail in a pool on the beach in the Caribbean sun never really gets old, does it?

This Week in Toledo 3/25/23

• On Monday, the Lucas County Regional Council of Governments reviewed an appeal from Swanton Township officials challenging over $20,000 in 911 service fees. The officials claim that numerous calls billed to them should have been billed to other agencies, including the Lucas County Port Authority and Metroparks Toledo.

• On Tuesday, Toledo City Council voted unanimously to name John Rivalsky, a certified public accountant (CPA) from Perrysburg, to be the new city auditor. He replaces former auditor Jake Jaksetic, who was terminated by council in December under pressure from Mayor Kapszukiewicz. Mr. Rivalsky will begin work on April 3 and will be paid $123,000 annually.

• Also on Tuesday, Toledo City Council reviewed a proposal put forward by the city administration to remove public benches with advertising on them due to improper placement, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) violations, broken promises by private contractors, and an absence of shared revenue. The proposal would see 50-60 new benches installed at popular bus stops using revenue held by the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority (TARTA).

• On Wednesday, the Metroparks Toledo board voted unanimously to commit $105,496 toward community engagement and planning work around the Glass City Riverwalk, a five-mile walking path around the Maumee River between the Anthony Wayne Bridge and the Veterans' Glass City Skyway. The Toledo Design Collaborative was selected to handle the engagement, which is being paid for with a coastal management grant provided by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

• Also on Wednesday, the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) opened three "BMV Express" kiosks at grocery stores in Toledo - one at the Kroger at 4925 Jackman Road, one at the Meijer at 7240 W. Central Avenue, and one at the Meijer at 1391 Conant Street in Maumee. Each kiosk allows users to print registration cards and validation stickers. For more information, visit https://ohiobmvexpress.com/map/.

• On Thursday, representatives of Epworth United Methodist Church announced that Epworth Preschool will remain closed for the remainder of the school year. The school closed on March 10 after the abrupt firing of director Jane Lyon; church leaders have stated that they felt the school's curriculum was not in line with their values and mission.

2023.03.24 04:38 ClipIn 2024 GMC Sierra 2500 & 3500 Heavy Duty: Everything I know

This post is specific to the 2024 GMC Sierra model year's 2500HD and 3500HD aka Heavy Duty versions. I'll include info on all trims. If you're looking for 1500 series models, some discounts below might be interestingvbut fair warning: most everything else is about the HD series trucks.
I've been watching all the news, spy shots, auto shows, press releases and can't wait to see this truck in person. Until then, I've been researching like crazy. Because I'm a nerd. Figured some other people might be like me, looking for all the quality updates, videos, pics, and (eventuallyI can't wait) reviews - so why not put them all in one place. Here goes...

Official stuff

Track Your Order

Auto-updates from VinView of every status change
Once your vehicle has a VIN assigned (event code 3800 or greater), your dealer can look it up in VinView for realtime status. It uses the OnStar GPS to track history and current location. There's one field for text alerts, and one field for email alerts. Salespeople usually use the email box, so just ask them to put your number in the empty box for text alerts if they're not using it. You will get automated order updates.
Email Alerts from GM
  1. Go here: https://www.gmc.com/order-notifications-form >> enter your info. You'll need your Order Number.
  2. Click submit. You'll get a confirmation, "Thank you for enrolling in GMC Order Status emails. We will provide you updates on your vehicle’s status as it moves through the build and production stages. Stay tuned for more."
  3. Keep an eye on your email. You'll get an automatic email as the order progresses through the build process. It looks like this (example).
Ask GMC Chat Bot Method
  1. Go to www.GMC.com >> click black "Message Us" icon in bottom right corner. If you don't see, adblockers and pi-hole will break it; disable and refresh page.
  2. Reply to the first message with Hi (this will have an automated reply) >> type order status >> when prompted for your six-digit order number (it might be alphanumeric) type that into chat.
  3. It will tell you order status in plain English. It will not provide dates or Event Codes.
Ask Live Agent Method
  1. Follow the steps in Automated Method above. At end, type Agent >> the system will automatically reply saying it'll transfer you to someone that can help. You can only do this during US business hours, otherwise chat will say they are closed and tell you to return the next day.
  2. Once an actual person replies, ask them to provide the status of your order. They may ask for the order number. In theory though, they should already see it from the steps earlier in the chat.
  3. They will give you a brief explanation of your order status.
  4. Reply by saying, "Can you please provide me with the event code on the order?" They'll most likely provide the code on the fist ask. If not, be firm and polite. If they still decline, close the chat and try again in a week.

2023.03.10 19:13 cranberrydudz Questions reposted from 3 months ago

*These questions come from a Ebike/Escooter perspective and not a motorcycle one.*
Ultimately waiting for the battery mounting/retention system update. 65lbs floating on a hinge will definitely be an issue for long term structural durability.

  1. Can you transport the ryvid anthem in a hatchback: i.e. a prius or a subaru outback if you remove the front tire and the battery and fold the rear seats down? (probably have to throw a tarp + a wooden floor board on the entire backseat area. (I know a hitch mount would be the correct transportation method but can't hurt to ask) You could alternatively do this: https://www.reddit.com/Damnthatsinteresting/comments/osf17j/saw_this_guy_towing_a_motorcycle_on_the_freeway/
  2. Do we have a final version of the new battery mounting mechanism?
  3. Do you think the battery mounting mechanism on the ryvid Anthem will survive going down stairs?https://www.reddit.com/Whatcouldgowrong/comments/tja9t4/its_just_stairs_nothing_my_motorcycle_cant_handle/ (I mean this is an exaggeration but it is still a relevant test to see if the mount can handle 65lbs of floating/bouncing battery weight)
  4. Is the final weight still coming in at 250lbs or has it gotten heavier (270lbs?) Weight reduction is a very important target to get the most range out of electric vehicles. I believe a Honda grom (gas motorcycle) comes in at 231lbs. A Zero FXS 7.2 KWH comes in at 289lbs. The Sondors Metacycle comes in over 320lbs. Kollter ES1 comes in at 240lbs with 1 72V 32AH battery and 270lbs with two batteries. Zero DS 14.4KH comes in at 362lbs, surron ultra bee 189lbs CSC RX1e comes in at 436.5lbs. NIU RQI: ? Super 73 C1x: ? Surron 8000BAC + 72v 57Ah EBMX battery: ? Energica experia 573lbs
  5. How many more bikes are you trying to pre-sale until production begins to ramp up?
  6. Will there be any hardware mounting points on the rear plastic area just above the tail light for helmet storage cases?
  7. Registration/insurance question: is it possible to register this as an electric moped (max speed is 30mph) vs a performance electric motorcycle?
  8. How hard is it to replace the belt drive on the ryvid anthem?
  9. Are there going to be instructions imprinted on the battery pack showing procedures on how to remove the battery? Think laser etched plastic. Or even a sticker (but that would stick out like an eyesore)
  10. Will there be a cruise control button? ( I believe you already covered this earlier and it was a no. This would have been an extremely useful feature for cruising at 30mph for longer stretches or at 18mph if limping home due to the battery getting too low.)
  11. Any future tax credits in the pipeline? (that's a government question for sure, but the state did give you tax credits so I'm hoping they've discussed it with you. I understand that it's 100% out of your control) edit* Looks like the tax credit applies to electric vehicles with 5kw hours or more. The anthem comes in at 4kw doesn't apply.
  12. Are there any good "lift" points on the anthem if you had to lift the motorcycle up onto a rear hitch mounted rack?
  13. Any pictures of the front headlight headlight beam at night? https://www.reddit.com/ryvid/comments/wq8zm4/clothes_off_easily_interchangeable_body_panels/ (sort of but not a clear enough shot of the light spread)
  14. Is there an replaceable in-line fuse to the battery pack?
  15. Will there be holes for mounting the charger on the bike? (otherwise most of us will just have to throw the charger in a backpack)
  16. Will there be a twist lock mechanism on the connectors where the cable connectors plug into the battery pack?
  17. Have you considered using rollerblade wheels for the removable battery pack?
  18. Will there be any room for improvements for a flexible kickstand? i.e. parking the anthem on a slight incline/not level surface? Vespas and even bird scooters have a secondary kickstand for propping the rear wheel up in the air. (Adds more weight to the bike but enhances greater confidence in utility/maintenance.)
  19. I understand that tubeless tires have greater flexibility compared to tubeless pneumatic (innertubes). Do you think that sealant or a sealant liner would be possible to add to the tires to reduce the risk of getting a puncture/flat while commuting? The ninebot g30p electric scooter has a uses a black sealant liner in it's tires. I believe they are the only company on the market that has this type of sealant solution for electric scooters. It's also a reason why rental companies use this g30p because of the tire's durability). It'd be a huge selling point durability wise. (this ain't a scooter)
  20. Will there be any lift points so that you can work on the anthem sort of like how a car has areas where a jackstand would be most effective. Turning the ryvid anthem on its side would still be a 275 pound contraption. https://imgur.com/a/R09feXD
  21. Have you tested the alarm system? on the metacycle, the alarm system works (and locks up the wheels) as long as the kickstand is down. If you lift the kickstand up and then move the metacycle, the alarm system will not work and won’t lock up the wheels.
  22. What’s the maintenance look like for the mid drive system? Some E bikes use bafang mid drive motors, which have had failures where the interior nylon components wearing out over time. How durable is the internal drive train? (I'm aware that there is a difference between something of an ebike vs a e-motorcycle with internal components, but future reparability is always a question.) https://www.reddit.com/ebikes/comments/zqdach/voiding_the_warranty_8500_mile_rebuild_of_my/
  23. Is the USB Port always powered? Or is it only active when the anthem is powered on? Looking to slap a Viofo A119V3 dashcam somewhere on the anthem.
  24. Please ensure that batteries are tested thoroughly during the assembly process. (Not sure what model ebike this was or whether it was a lipo or 18650 cell build. *The battery pack was a LIPO cell structure) https://youtu.be/wxr1iXEf9lY
  25. Will there be weather sealing gaskets for the battery or the accessories compartment? Just in case the anthem gets caught out in rain for some reason, what parts would be susceptible to rust, corrosion?
  26. Will there be a lock for the accessories compartment or a simple spring pop up?
  27. Was reading the Zero motorcycle forums and saw that that the Zero S/SR motorcycles had issues with water creating havoc with the BMS due to the BMS not having adequate water protection. water + batteries = corrosion/shorts = battery fires.
  28. Charging the battery off the bike will most likely be done on a very frequent basis as a result of the rare possibility of a fire occurring during charging. If the battery triggers a thermal runaway scenario when charging, at least the bike can still be used and a spare battery ($3,600 battery + ($250) shipping cost would be more affordable than a total loss on the bike)
  29. Are there any mounting points on the bike frame for a Kryptonite Keeper 785 bike chain lock? Would love to lock the wheel to the frame when parked as an additional security measure.
  30. Will there be an owners registration page on your website to log bike and battery serial numbers for repair purposes?
  31. Is the battery gauge like a 1-5 battery meter or a voltage readout (86.4V for a 72V system?)
  32. Thoughts about branded “ryvid” motorcycle storage covers?
  33. Would you consider an industrial connector that forklifts use for their battery terminal? I've seen these used in a warehouse and these connectors are heavily used but very reliable. https://www.amazon.com/6320G1-Anderson-Original-Forklift-Connectodp/B017U4ZM6A/ref=asc_df_B017U4ZM6A/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=416886378438&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=3166365716295539545&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9031040&hvtargid=pla-871312042283&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=94306393152&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=416886378438&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=3166365716295539545&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9031040&hvtargid=pla-871312042283
  34. Any good locations to mount a steel waterbottle (32oz hydroflask or a 24oz thermoflask? aftermarket question.)
  35. What's the real world range of cruising between 30-45mph on flat streets with a 160lb ish rider? (no hard acceleration grabs, just basic commuting speeds like you're going into work but not in a real hurry)
  36. Will there be a voltage cutoff threshold to prevent the battery from dropping too low?
  37. Is it possible to physically limit the ryvid anthem to a top speed of 30mph for registration purposes by using a speed limiting cable? Sport motorcycle insurance is going to be expensive if it has to be registered like a zero motorcycle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CelWV-FDQMU
  38. Someone mentioned on electrek: "uncomfortable looking seat section that interfaces with the inside of the leg and it would have been nice to comment on this portion too." Has there been added cushion/removal of the inner panel design to address this issue?
  39. Does disconnecting the battery and reconnecting the battery disable the power button/locked mode? (I think that's why the metacycle comes with a battery activator tool)
  40. Have you considered using a cheap android phone as a display instead of an ebike display unit? one advantage would be that you could use the phone to change the bike's settings with the bluetooth feature without needing an android phone. (most iphones don't have the option to sideload .sdk apps) https://youtu.be/Z8N_sn2bDJM?t=262 To be fair though, this would be one more thing that could get stolen off the bike. so it's a double edged sword.
  41. Have you tested the seat height mechanism for sudden shock changes? For example if someone hits a bump and their body mass lifts them off the seat and then back down, you'll have almost double the weight on impact. 240-400lbs of force on the actuatopump. (parts that move are typically points of failure) Adding to this idea, if a passenger was on the back of the bike, you could double the amount of weight/stress on that lift mechanism.
  42. I've noticed that the actuator extends at an angle and that the seat is putting horizontal pressure to the actuator whereas the actuator goes up and down. Any risk of that part bending over time? https://imgur.com/a/hTjnLZS
  43. How quick does the level 2 Fast charging handle with the battery? The included charger can only pull what it is rated for so fast charging doesn't really add any additional benefits then what the charger can output. (it requires an adapter to utilize the charging stations like chargepoint, evgo, electrify america)
  44. Also read on the forums from a Zero FXE owner: "I get 50 miles at an average speed of 40mph" which is with a 6.3kwh pack. So with a 4kw pack, a realistic range of 25 (at full throttle) to 50 miles (conservative 35mph speeds) achievable? (depending on rider weight/riding conditions obviously)
  45. Will there be a digital display/volt meter on the battery pack itself?
  46. Are there any adhesive rubber blocks that will be available so that your knees can brace on for additional points of contact on the bike? https://imgur.com/a/XSBTTGE Right now it looks like the inner thigh is responsible for most of the grip vs your knees. I've also noticed that the riders ankles look to be hitting the ankle area. https://grizzlapads.com/. I suppose one could sit on the bike for an hour and think what areas of my butt are getting uncomfortable. You could also ask yourself: If i lean to either side of the bike, what pressure points are hitting my inner thigh/leg and is it doable for sustained periods of time? This is pure speculation as I haven't sat on the bike. The metacycle fell short in the comfort department and designed a bike around aesthetics vs practicality. Most metacycle riders wouldn't be comfortable riding riding for more than 40 minutes due to the narrow width of the seat.
  47. Can you remove the passenger pegs/bracket? (what weight savings will you gain?) Also, is there a real need to have passenger footpegs? I suppose the passenger footpegs would be useful for wheelies, something i hadn't considered but now could see that it might be beneficial to certain users. https://youtu.be/vg7pJgzGShg?t=1312 If you pause at this point of the video, there doesn't seem to be much room for a passenger unless they would be sitting on the edge of the seat/plastic bracket that holds the rear brake light. (might want to test the plastic tail light bracket behind the seat to see if it can actually handle someone accidentally sitting on that.
  48. Have you considered moving the foot peg to the kickstand to gain a few more inches of leg stretch? This might solve the issue of riding with your legs flared outwards as seen in the videos but then your toes would be exposed to the floor first when cornering which would be a safety issue so I suppose there's nothing you can really do in that regard. https://imgur.com/a/LYQn5I9 (dumb idea in retrospect)
  49. Saw this tech feature on a BMW ce-04 electric scooter. https://youtu.be/RZClWcL4D44?t=192 pretty neat idea to have a kickstand that auto locks the wheels when it's down and unlocks the wheels once the kickstand is put into the "up" position. it's probably patented. otherwise this would be a neat feature for future performance models.
  50. Thoughts on studded footpegs? (probably aftermarket for sure) https://www.amazon.com/Footpegs-Roating-Chopper-Bobber-Sportstedp/B07Y8B3T44/ref=asc_df_B07Y8B3T44/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=432911248979&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=2271204340628136653&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9030947&hvtargid=pla-906995888563&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=102283076762&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=432911248979&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=2271204340628136653&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9030947&hvtargid=pla-906995888563
  51. Does the front fork "dive" like the metacycle does? Not sure why the metacycle has so much forward dive but that's something that other riders have mentioned in their riding characteristics.
  52. Has there been any tests to show how the battery would react if it was fully charged and the bike was then sent downhill with regenerative breaking enabled? So for example, if I lived in big bear, California and had to go to work after having fully charged the bike, would it be able to go downhill all the way without any issues seeing as the battery is already fully charged?
  53. Is there a warranty on the frame/moving parts like the seat actuator?
  54. What components would be possibly bent if one were to place the ryvid anthem in a hatchback. (battery removed would still bring the bike from ~265lbs to ~200lbs - (35lbs for removing the front wheel) = 165 lbs of weight. If it is placed on the left side (drive train side) will the plastic cover covering the drive train crack? If placed on the right side, would the foot pegs bend? Will the tail lights get torn off/break?
  55. Would tire plugs be a useful emergency accessory in case one gets a flat while riding paired with a xiaomi portable pump?
  56. Will the seat padding be sufficient enough so that the contact point on your inner thigh won't be exposed to the metal edge of the frame? i.e. is there foam padding that goes over the edge of the frame to the seat edge.
  57. What would be the repair process entail if one were to get into an accident on the frame? Since the frame is lighter (a huge win for sure) if the frame gets bent and the bike resembles more of a potato chip, would would the repair process entail? I remember there was a mention that the frame had additional glue/bonding for structural support
  58. Cost for an additional charger (for leaving one at work and one at home)?
  59. If the ryvid anthem is towed behind a car with the front wheel elevated on a rack like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09XMLC3RF/ref=sspa_dk_detail_6?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B09XMLC3RF&pd_rd_w=fVfQG&content-id=amzn1.sym.46bad5f6-1f0a-4167-9a8b-c8a82fa48a54&pf_rd_p=46bad5f6-1f0a-4167-9a8b-c8a82fa48a54&pf_rd_r=SR5FVBW65D5NTHAWZWZ6&pd_rd_wg=y3rAb&pd_rd_r=8d6c9335-55f8-4399-a479-b7eeb3be0397&s=automotive&sp_csd=d2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9kZXRhaWw&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExQjVEOElIV1NBMk9UJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwOTMyOTcxMU9QQlNQTVVONEJYVyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNDA1NjU3MjdSQU5XMkVLMjNLNyZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2RldGFpbCZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU= would there be any issues if the battery was still attached (rear wheel would inadvertently be rotating the belt drive possibly "charging" the battery. If the battery was removed for transportation but still mounted in this matter, would there be any issues if the bike were transported this way?
  60. Can you "recharge" the battery by towing the anthem? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cY2Wf2tmqk also a zero motorcycle getting back 4%: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RT2uXNvReN0
  61. Battery charging software restrictions? Is there a way to limit the charging to 95% via software to prevent aggressive battery degradation? Batteries are most effective between 20-80% where it gets harder to charge the batteries at 80-100%.
  62. Will there be online videos on how to replace a belt, change a tire, replacing a throttle, removing the controller, replacing the rear turn signals, tire balancing?
  63. Paper or digital pdf user guide manual that comes with the bike?
  64. Cost of replacement keys for the bike/battery lock and or cost of replacement for a spare key fob?
  65. Possible option of having a custom NFC key to turn on your bike? (the segway gt2 scooter has an NFC chip instead of a physical key) https://www.youtube.com/shorts/_fGMUhKIVsk
  66. Option for installing aftermarket underbody lights or an extra usb port option would be awesome so that USB LED strips can be used.
  67. Aftermarket wind shield options. https://madstad.com/products/windshield_zero_sr?variant=603951398926
  68. What tools will be included with the bike?
  69. Can the kickstand support the entire weight of the bike? https://youtu.be/QbIaEwp6chY
  70. Are there any aftermarket "sliders" that would be able to be mounted to the frame?
  71. When turning off the bike, can you lock the brakes to the brake discs to prevent any wheel movement?
  72. Any updates to the prototypes undergoing rigorous testing?
  73. Are there any design elements to make the ryvid more aerodynamic?
  74. Does the strength of the frame really rely on the adhesive or the rivets?
  75. Are folded metal pieces susceptible to fractures during manufacturing?
  76. Will there be a secondary safety strap if the battery clamp fails while riding? If the battery falls and hits the ground while moving at 65mph on the freeway, it could be a huge liability for the company. A secondary catch bracket or even a ratchet strap would at least give the rider time to pull over to safety since the balance shift would immediately be noticeable if the battery dropped downwards. Safety is sexy.
  77. How's the software tuning coming along for the regen braking? Is this something that the end user can adjust with an app or is this preprogrammed?
  78. Do you think there should be a standardized range measurements of "City, Highway, and Freeway range stats?" i.e. a city range is 18-35mph, highway is 40-55mph and freeway is 60-75mph
  79. Is there phantom battery power drain when the bike is not being used? This is a pretty serious issue with the zero motorcycles in which the battery drains 1% a day when not in use. Is there phantom battery drain when the battery is plugged into the bike as opposed to unplugged?
  80. Since the bike is relatively simple to assemble, would it be wise to delay the release so that the ABS braking can be implemented? I think it would have a more polished product with a nice feature like this. (also increases brand perception.) You also wouldn't have to store separate parts for non-abs and abs parts for inventory/repair.
  81. Is the front fender too short for actually preventing water splashing onto the rider while riding? There is no real fender to prevent water splashback. it's design element takes more of an offroad approach similar to the zero FXE (rider is going to get soaked when it rains).
  82. Will we have all the necessary documentation to register the anthem at the dmv? linked from the metacycle forum: "dealership letterhead and include the purchaser’s name and address, year, make, CC/HP, color, model name, model number and snowmobile identification number (SVIN), date of sale, purchase price including all sales and/or use taxes collected, dealers facility number, dealers tax IDnumber and signature of the dealer. "
  83. Will there be any thermal limitations to the motor since it isn't liquid cooled? The sondors metacycle can sustain over 70 mph for about a minute before the software limits the energy being sent to the hub to prevent the hub motor from getting too hot and melting the wires leading to the hall sensors. After all, it isn't the top speed that's the issue, it's how fast you can shed the heat from the system before wire connectors melt: (see ninebot g30p melted connectors on a scooter: https://www.google.com/search?q=ninebot+max+melted+wires&rlz=1C1GCEB_enUS973US973&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjVi7Ptyej8AhU2LEQIHXpcBGIQ_AUoAnoECAEQBA&biw=1920&bih=937&dpr=1#imgrc=O8TRegXn60cFHM)
  84. Would it be wise to invest in rubber blocks to be placed underneath the seat once the desired seat height has been set by the user to keep the stress off of seat lift actuator?
  85. Is there a square footprint dimensions for the bike when lying on the floor? A hatchback has a 48" x 68" footprint with the seats folded down. If the ryvid can fit in a hatchback with the seats folded down, this would be a gamechanger since it would offer the flexibility of a sur ron ultrabee while offering a sustainable higher top speed. lifting 175lbs out of a hatchback is feasible as long as the plastic parts of the bike don't break/crack if the bike is on it's side.
  86. Since the bike is relatively light, instead of implementing an ABS braking system, wouldn't it be easier to implement a thumb lever that triggers regen braking? Or will that put too much stress on the belt system? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYl9dXPn4tk
  87. Could it be possible to use the battery as a portable battery pack for charging electronics and such in a pinch?
  88. What purpose does the J1772 adapter merit if the stock charger can still only pull 120V from the wall? Yes you can charge from a normal charger like: chargepoint, electrify america, and possibly even tesla in the future, but you will still be pulling whatever the stock charger is rated to pull from 120V max. example: https://www.reddit.com/metacycle/comments/11iqnvq/public_ev_charging_station_with_a_j1772_adapte
  89. Thoughts of having a mounting hook for locking a helmet to the bike somewhere on the frame?
  90. Will there be any additional security points to lock the battery to the bike? There is a lock mechanism at the handle area to the frame, but due to the high demand of catalytic converter thefts/Sawzall attacks, the anthem's batteries are HIGHLY susceptible to petty thieves. https://www.amazon.com/RYOBI-18-Volt-Cordless-Reciprocating-Packaging/dp/B08DG7RQY1/ref=asc_df_B08DG7RQY1/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=459730407112&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=759003998785892555&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9030938&hvtargid=pla-967010648139&psc=1
  91. Can you put a section in the owners manual about safely storing the ryvid anthem? As in taking security countermeasures to locking the bike, securing the battery, wheel locks? Since the ryvid is a middle weight class of an ebike and a electric motorcycle, ensuring security measures would be a wise notation in the owners manual. Some people will be able to store their bike in the garage, but some might not have that luxury.
One of the core questions of the battery mounting mechanism still hasn't been addressed/revealed which is why I haven't pulled the trigger on my order.
Side observations:
  1. Competition for ebikes/mopeds/e motorcycles will be absolutely fierce going into 2023-2024: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMwKhpYulEU (these are gray area ebikes/e-mopeds)
  2. This doesn't apply to the anthem but here's an example of a disadvantage of hub motors (besides the unsprung weight:(https://www.reddit.com/ElectricScooters/comments/101qjhp/this_what_happens_when_salt_gets_in_the_hubs/) The advantage of a hub motor is that there's no maintenance since there's no moving parts) Mid drive systems like the anthem do have moving parts.
  3. Acerbis handguards seem like a really nice accessory to have to prevent your fingers from getting too cold but also a shock absorber if one were to hit a car mirror. (it's featured on your demo bike. this isn't a question, just an observation.)
  4. The seat raising and lowering is a huge selling point for the ryvid anthem. Moreso then I thought. I tried sitting on a zero DS electric motorcycle which has an inseam height of 32" and the awkwardness of not being able to flatfoot was worrisome as a new comer into motorcycles/electric motorcycles.
  5. Just learned that the Zero DS only uses 4 screws to hold the battery to the frame. I suppose the anthem's latching arm can do the same however the angle of the arm does not have as equal of a weight distribution compared to the 4 points on the bottom that the zero uses.
  6. Really enjoyed the podcast session: https://micromobility.io/news/an-electric-motorbikes-for-the-masses-with-ryvid-founder-dong-tran
One of the reasons that the metacycle did so well on pre-orders was that there was a $100 refundable fee. The checkout process only gives you two options: 1) a payment plan option $8,190 in total and 2) full payment up front $7,800. There is no 3rd option for just submitting a $500 reservation system that can be refunded at the purchaser's discretion.
