should have dropped a duece right there on their sidewalk. That would have really showed them. Non-violence! Non-violence!

Im not far from my bike at anytime when out. Otherwise I dont go out.

Usually the courteous parking areas are very obvious. As mentioned, consult owners/bouncers/cops what they would prefer.

I park in the handicapped spots. Not the striped part but the actual spot. I also pick on little kids and kick puppies. If that is taken I park on the sidewalk directly in front of the emergency exit. Parking perpendicular on the sidewalk is good too. No one will even walk on that sidewalk because they can't. Perfect.

I have been told at some places I can't park my bike on the sidewalk or in the dashed lines (malls, mostly), so I just park in a regular spot. When I'm at school I always park in the bike parking. At home my bike is garage kept.

Seriously though, I have to admit that if I can't find a good spot that my bike won't get hit, I will park in the dashed lines next to a handicap spot. I personally think that if you park right there is plenty of room to pull out a wheelchair in the off chance that somewhere parks there and is actually in a wheel chair. I've had my bike hit too many times parking in regular spots and every time it happens the person asks me why I parked it there. LOL. I know a lot of people think it is wrong, but don't blame me, blame the who didn't put in parking for motorcycles. I've been doing that many many years and have yet to cause any problems. I've even seen someone get out a wheelchair with me parked there and they had plenty of room. People are too hypersensitive about it in my opinion.

Parking Update for Downtown....

1. i took my car to downtown for lunch. met my sister. left 60 mins later, got THE BOOT :( $113 later it's off. A lady offered me her parking receipt she had recently bought, and it was for ALL DAY. so i figured it was good. Nope. They are strict on NO in/out privaleges. it's whatever. i took it as a lesson learned. i've gotten away with some $hit in the past, finally caught up with me.

2. while the meter guy was running my CC, i asked him about motorcycles and how u can park them since the paper could be taken/ blow away. he said try to Take a pic with ur cell phone showing date / time in case u get ticketed. i found that interesting and kinda clever

I generally park on sidwalks up next to the wall of whatever business I am going in, and when i say by the wall I mean as tight in as i can get it without leaning to park. In the Woodlands area I've had to go to the mall for one reason or another, and parked it next the the bicycle rack. The Mall ninjas never even looked twice.

If theres a bike rack out fron, thats my official parking spot. Just keep it out of the way so bicycles can still park in there.

I've asked managers of stores/restaurants if I can park my scoot up on the sidewalk, out of the way... never been told no.

Parking...Usually in the Yellow stripped areas, but occasionally in front of the restaurants or stores on the side walk area. As long as its not in the walk way or Fire Lane area...Ya gotta respect the Fire Dept.
