I lost my parking spot during Ike

I went for a post-Ike ride Saturday late morning all around downtown and Heights and when I got back to my apartment Saturday evening, there was a bike parked in my spot. It's a mid-rise apartment with a parking garage and I've been parking in the same spot near my apartment for over a year with no problem and now there's a new gsxr parked there. They parked right next to my lock (still on the rail) so they had to have known someone parks there. I've been watching for them to leave for the last 3 days and I can tell that the has moved but now there's a scooter parked there too. I was going to park right behind them but I didn't want to block them in and also didn't want them to think that I'm too close to their nice shiny new bike.

I'm going to start parking up in their with them soon, but I think it's a resident's friend or something cause I've never seen it before and we didn't lose power and lots of friend/family are staying with people there.

I know I don't own the spot or anything but it always seems to be an unspoken rule about the bike spots in there cause the same bikes are always parked in the same spots. None of them are real parking spots.

If anyone drives a new white/silver GSXR please give me my spot back. PS, I like your bike.

I parked at a chikfila once and someone with a weird older buell with american flags hanging off the back parked my GSXR in. I started it up and revv'd it thinking he would hear and come move it but he didn't and I had places to be,

so i just pushed that out of the way myself.

I can't tell you what is right for you, but I have a feeling I'd be moving it. Throw the scooter off the side of the garage while you are at it.

(I rode a yellow 50 cc gely jetstar for 2 years so I'm allowed to say that)

I'm really thinking about parking in the space next to it and kinda behind it. There's enough room for him to get out. I just think it's a move on his part especially since he's parked right next to my big @ss lock on the ground and it's obvious a bike parks there. (not just the lock, but the 1,000's of kickstand scrapes and some oil spots from before I got a new crush washer.

I'm not going to throw the scooter over the side cause they're like the freaking banditos in my hood and they'd probably shank me. The Heights is being overrun by scooters I tell you.

Leave a note and ask the guy to ride with you. When he accepts, take him to some back roads and bash his skull in. He gets taught a lesson and you get your parking spot back - everyone wins!

Well I know it doesn't have the security system where they'll call you if anybody jacks with it cause my buddy was sitting on it last night. I was hoping someone would run out and ask us who's messing with it.

But on a serious note, if all u lost during Ike was ur parking spot, then consider urself lucky!! We all know that thousands of people actually lost their homes during Ike, so we shud be thankful that we even have a friggin parking spot to lose instead of our actual homes. So let them have the spot for now. But TRUST ME, I know how u feel. Jus look at the glass as half empty...at least u still have ur bike...

I hear you, I'm just being sarcastic about losing it during Ike. My dad lost his whole house (on Trinity Bay) so I understand the gravity of the situation.

I checked yesterday around 5:30 and he was still in my spot but 5 minutes later when I was going to get my satellite signal meter from storage (friends dish got blown sideways) the bike was gone. I ran inside and grabbed my keys and put my bike in it and locked it up so that he sees that the lock was actually for locking up a bike and not just looking cool on the rail. I then went inside and washed my hands and continued on my errand to my storage room at the apartment and he drove up. Fool was gone for less than 10 minutes! He went to pull in and stopped like WTF? and looked around and parked in the full parking spot I'd been in earlier.

Oh yeah, I took some pics last night when I got home and was drunk, bored and the water was out.

Why not just leave a polite note explaining that that lock belongs to you and you would appreciate him not blocking the spot where you lock your bike up? Or even offer to lock his too...
