Downtown Houston Motorcycle Parking

Hi all - so I never really had to park downtown. Anyone have any good parking suggestions downtown. I am near main st, fannin, and san Jacinto area.

There is a parking garage but $8 a day :(

I think you can park really close to the stairs that go down into the parking garage along the curb on the corner by Slick Willie's and Hard Rock on Texas and Smith.

Oh, during the day...umm...I usually see bikes parked along the bridge in front of the theatre (not sure what street that is). I don't know how safe that would be. I pay for the parking garage at work.

Many of the office building parking garages have free bike parking. I work downtown for Continental. We are in 2 different buildings and I can park in the garage for either one for free, but now that the fair weather riders are out in force spaces are near full. There was a Busa stolen out of one of our garages, but I think it was at night.

Bikes at my old building Smith and Jefferson just rode around the barrier and parked in the motorcycle parking. Never got towed. Didn't have a bike when I worked there so I didn't do it myself.

I am assuming they rode around the barrier as well on the way out?
