You need to buy this helmet quick! LOL...

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=80845

Sorry to hear about your lid homie. 50% I just slap my helmet on the seat and go. I will think twice about that from now on...

Anyway, what I don't get is these people that steal other's items of clothing and wear it (possibly)? I wish a bacterial infection lodges somewhere on their body and eats them to death. The itchyour-assoutis strain. Freaking thieves.

PS. Want to keep your stuff safe. Just put a Hepatitus club sticker on your bike and no one will touch it.
That area is striped off for a reason, and yes you can get ticketed for it. That's the access area they need to maneuver around, and get into and out of their vehicles. It's my job to know this. Sure I see many people park there, but I know I don't. I have relatives, and friends who are handicapped, and parking there does constitute an obstacle for them to get around, if they can at all. It's not striped off just for someone's un-rightious selfish convenience.

I think Magic Johnson owns that business park now but ever since he took over it seemed like it lost most of the business. Sorry to hear that though man.. and it's funny cause Most riders wouldn't mess with another riders helmet so it was probably some kids that cut the strap and now have no use for the helmet...

the lines are the same as a handicapped spot. they're actually part of the handicap spot. parking there is the same as saying "**** you" to a handicapped person.

Stereotypical? often times yes, but not in this case.

I never said that I did it, but no need to jump on the guy like you have never ever seen in your life that someone parked in that striped area and becoming all outraged as though he was in the actual blue area. It similar to someone saying, " you pee'd in the pool??" and becoming all outraged. It not unheard of. No need to be outraged, just tell the guy he should stay off those areas.

As far as saying F U in a handi-spot, I prefer to refer to that area as a handi-spot: Handy when there is no other spots available to park.

If I ride up there I usually go to the designated motorcylcle parking in the lot between Red Robin and the movie theatre. Sometimes I'll carry the helmet if I don't lock it up there. Sucks that people can't respect others property.

I'm sure it off a HC person every time he/she sees someone NOT disabled parking in your so-called "handi-spot". As far as telling the guy he should stay off that area, it's not as if he's that stupid not to know he shouldn't park there.

............. no, its not.


those strips are there for people who need that type of space to get out of their vehicle. it may not be a motorized ramp, it may be someone like me that has a fake leg above the knee that when im able to, opening the door all the way makes it much easier for me to get in and out of vehicles.

there is ALWAYS a different spot to park in, it may be a much farther walk, so get off your lazy and walk, if your that lazy, it would probably do you some good anyways. Funny enough, those "handi-spots" as you like to call them, we have to actually pay to use them.


btw: i am a double amputee, left leg above the knee and left arm above the elbow, and majority of the time, i dont even park in those spots. there is always someone worse off than me that needs that space more than i do, and im pretty such they need it 100% more than you.


either way, its against the law for you to park there, when i see that , i call it in.

Hate to Hi-Jack this thread but has anyone noticed that the healthy walking people you see coming out of Handicapped spots are disproportionately black? Wonder if it has anything to do with that black judge that got caught that was writing all her friends and their friends free passes a couple of years ago.

Well I got slapped with a $300 ticket. yea thats right, a $300 parking ticket...... Went to court and to my dismay the judge was a old fat HANDICAPPED guy.....needless to say i paid the fee and will not park there again.

Also about the helmet, I got a $20 4' cable lock from home depot and use that to go through my back tire, around the tail and through my helmet that sits on my seat. Been 4 years not of doing this any no helmet loss yet. I leave it like this EVERYDAY, rain or shine without any problems.

You went to the YMCA in Pearland? Because yea, I see those Citizen Patrol peeps every now and then. They ride in a car that looks like a cop car and are usually old people that go around checking for Handicap Parking Violations. I laugh to myself every time I see them.

Maybe its just a sense of entitlement amongst a few? Who knows either way its just what i've noticed. Nothing racist in pointing out the obvious. You would be racist if you acted like you didn't notice!

it could be the case, but look closer, if they have a red tag hanging, it means they are mentally disabled.

i have a friend that walked around a parking lot 3 hours looking for his car. he looks fine, walks fine, talks fine, but he has a bit of a memory problem from a wreck that happen several years ago.

LOL i'm pretty sure anyone can get a tag like that but I don't think Mentally disabled is a reason to park closer to the store. Let those Mo**F**ers walk it off! Closer in means they can walk in shoot up a store and walk right back to their car and take off. Plus I don't think it would be right to advertise to the public this dudes crazy on a handicap sticker it probably means something else.

I hate when obese people get stickers. They REALLY need to walk more.
