I had some HPD officer tell me to move my bike off the side walk once. In downtown meter parking gives you a slip to put on your dash. What are we supposed with it on our bikes?

Park on sidewalks if it is out of the way and not in an area where it's likely to be messed with (directly out front of malls or bars by the doors seems like a bad idea to me). Do know though a business owner has the right to tell you not to put your bike on the sidewalks/entrance to their business. If it's their property, it's their rules. Don't like that, take your business elsewhere.

Other than that, most things are free game, but DO NOT PARK IN HANDICAPPED LOADING AREAS. These areas are marked off for a reason, because wheelchair vans and such require a certain amount of room to unload.

i've had pretty good luck in large parking lots parking in the yellow striped lines. but as mentioned, i stay farrrr away from handicap zone. bikes stick out easily and i'm sure a cop would LOVE to write up a big fat ticket for that

i'd be more worried about an aggravated handicapped person knocking your over. there is a pic someone posted on here before, can't find it at the moment, of a cruiser knocked over on it's side by a side exit wheel chair van.

Yes, Thank you for not parking in the handcap zones and marked off areas, its hard enough in a wheelchair with out obstacles in the way. I had a guy block me in at baybrook mall with his bike and I was more than off. Almost to the point of pushing it out of my way and on its side. But I controlled myself, called mall security and had them remove it for me. lol

You have a longer fuse then I do. I think I would have just knocked that right over. Bet the guy wouldn't do it again. You have enough to worry about as it is just getting around, shouldn't have to worry about not being able to open your door and get out of your car. But then again, brians vehicles are too pretty to risk scratching on some dumbasses bike!

in slanted parking lots i park in the slanted white lines at the very front. they are not handicapped areas they are just to even out driving lanes and normally have a stop sign p[ole or something of that sort in the way so your bike can't get hit easliy. but knocked over is a different story

I just slide the slip between the seat and the tank. I've seen several tickets on bikes that park on the sidewalk during the day downtown but I've never gotten one when parked at the Saucer.

That's where I had a parking ticket placed, so I'm assuming that's the expected spot.

+1, I have never parked on the sidewalk. Nothing against it, just always fear getting a ticket or my bike "removed" because of it.
