Think about it this way, what do you think Nikko from GTA would do? Park that right in his bed room.

I think the bike has to be a minimum amount of feet from the building. Not sure the amount though.

When I was living at my last apartment complex, I was parking outside (non-covered parking) for a good month or so. That's when I noticed someone punctured my front tire with a nail, It was placed there on purpose.

After that I began parking inside, 1st floor ftw.

The neighbors never complained nor did management. I moved out of that apartment complex into a newer one. I now park in a covered parking spot outside.

I'm sure it's not permitted, it is a major fire hazard and could cost you a fine from the Fire Marshall.

I hacked my patio gate and installed hinges and an upper/lower lock on the inside when I was an apt dweller. I'm sure it wasn't allowed, I modified the gate after hours, and painted hinges same color as the fence to conceal.

Park inside. If you park it outside. It might get stolens bikes are 3 time more likely to get stolen form an apt complex then a neighborhood.

Completely agree. Back when I lived in an apartment, thieves were kind enough to help themselves to my brand new bike. It was awesome walking out to head for work only to find it gone.

Park it inside if you're able to do it.

That happened in the parking lot of my townhouse. With the layout, I couldn't get the bike onto the patio (L-shaped sidewalk w/trees). Ex wife wouldn't allow it inside. Walked outside, and POOF. A 5 month old, 5000 mile ZX10R gone. I was . I come from the country. People dont mess with your . Just the thought of someone disrespecting my property drove me nuts!

Rent a storage garage for gods sake. WOrse thing about parking a HOT bike in your apartment that these people arent telling you. You're apartment will smell like and be HOT until the bike cools down. Go forbid you got oil leeks...and what happens when it rains...

i live on 3rd floor...so parking in my apt i out of the question.

But i usually park underneath the stairwell which is hidden from the parking lot. No problems so far. also keep it chained and covered.

In our previous unit (same apt) one of the females that worked in the office lived right above us so 3-4 days after i got my 1st bike she told me i couldnt park under the stairwell...we moved to a new unit a month later & i resumed parking my bike under the stairwell of our new building. All is good.
