So I guess apartments aren't allowed to have gas appliances either?

Do you have any awnings or anything there? So you can chain it to a post or something when you take your truck?
I thought of this, and the only thing that I could find was some kind of huge utility... I really don't know what it is. Just looks like if you started trying to cut on it something bad would happen. I was thinking of wrapping it around that when I work nights and it is raining. I should be back in time in the morning to move it before someone notices.

Apts are hurting for residents these days & i doubt they would evict you on something other than non-payment of rent.

I'd park that bike in my living room too. Nor would i stop a resident from doing so. If they end up messing up the carpet... thats what a deposit is for, or they get charged for repairs.

Good Luck.
She said it was a fire hazard.

nah the firemarshal would fine the apartments for not enforcing it. And I asked about the appliances ( I was all electric) but still a valid point. They stated that the bike tank was considered an explosion risk. I told her the changes of the bike exploding were next to nothing and she said no. So I did it anyways.

Just asked my manager about this... She said the resident would be ticketed/fined. We (office) would need to send them a letter explaining how it's a fire code violation, but if the resident refused to take action, then it's on them. We would keep a letter on file showing we notified the resident.

Now if there was something against fire code outside of the dwelling or in common areas, etc. I'd be a different story.

I mean it's not like apt management could physically go in & move said motorcycle, so yes... Resident would get the punishment from the fire Marshall.

She's just being a basically. You her off before this or something?

I had mold growing in my vents and notified management. A month goes by. I call them again. 2 months go by, and I called again. She came in herself, saw the bike, told me to move it, and did nothing about the vents. Told me to do whatever I needed to do. I finally called the Health Department. The guy said I needed to make notification in writing, and then they would have 7 days to respond (if I remember correctly). Two weeks pass and nothing. He finally had to come out in person to get them to do something about it. BTW, he said that they were required to hire someone qualified to take care of the problem, and she had her own maintenance guys do it. I said it and let that part go. I now have mold again

just a suggestion, but sounds like you could put the bike inside and just make sure it's not inside whenever she's supposed to come over.

an alarm & full coverage if you keep it outside. thieves want it quiet, an alarm will spoil that. i know you said you're upside down, but if it gets stolen, you don't want to pay it all, right?

i have a silverado and had the stock wheels stolen off my truck in my driveway (i'm in pasadena too). words straight out of the pasadena cop's mouth were "i wish to someone would just walk outside while it was happening and shoot these sob's."

i know he had legal bills and headaches, but joe horn got away with it in the middle of the day, on someone else's property.

This also occurred to me, but they have started doing construction around my place, and they tore up the sidewalks. Not even considering a rainy day, it would likely take me 20 minutes to get the bike from the apartment to the parking lot, also disregarding the fact that it is a small apartment with the maintenance guys walking around all the time. They were in the apartment when the manager jumped my about the bike. You can see where I am going with this. I also have too much furniture to do it anymore as well. I'd have to park it in front of the TV.

I know the thread's a bit old and you may not have read it all, but I did say a couple of times that I have FC. I'd have to be crazy(er) not to.

the chain is wrapped around the frame. If you can think of a more secure location on the truck to wrap it then by all means, share

Sorry, missed your point. I get it now though, which is why I started locking it up even during the day. Sorry you got jacked. I've been there a couple of times myself.

this is true i live in a house in a neighborhood with no young people and my friends dirtbike was stolen out of my garage. Luckily the police found it about 3 weeks later. I am in dickinson and its a quiet neghborhhod and the kid that stole it did not even live near us he just happen to see it one day and came back for it.

a garage isnt a full proof deterent, but its quite effective. the old "out of sight, out of mind" bit, and the thieves will just have to flat out work for it and risk getting caught with the time it takes. tho, there are some brave/stupid ones out there that just dont give a but it does greatly reduce the risk of theft greatly.
