Places to Park

Hey guys,

I tried a search, but came up with nothing.

So, I've got tickets to the Houston Rodeo again this year, but I've always caged it.

Seeing as how bikes can practically park anywhere and I was hoping to save a few bucks, where can motorcycles park near Reliant? I'm completely sure of all the "rules."

Does anybody know of a sweet spot?

I'm also told that parking at the end of car rows in the yellow striped lines can get you towed. It's normally a no parking zone for cars, but bikes...?


Sorta like this, but at the end:

NoParking Spot 217475



Map of the area:

2012ParkingMap







Any help or parking advice is appreciated...


Pete

striped zones are the best spots, especially the ones next to the handicapped spots since they're extra wide.

Behind Sam's, lightrail. Got it. Thanks.

The free option is also the best option.

I've parked bikes at the rodeo. Still pay to get in the lot but you get to park right up front with the other bikes. It makes it a snap to exit after the show.

I never park in the handicapped spots or the striped area but I do see alot of other people that do. I see cops here in Houston don't care much if you do but in Cali if your car or bike touches any part of those blue lines your getting a $380 ticket, you don't even need to be parked there all you need to do is touch the blue line and they can ticket you for handicap parking.
