Not my bike, but the lengths security went to to keep me from parking in the "Staff Only" lot (I am staff).

Of course I can just ride around the exit gate as well, not to mention over the grass, it is an ADV bike after all...

And yet that picture appears to be taken from a cage.

Sorry i don't have any pictures but living in Honolulu in the 50's guys use to park there bikes 3 or 4 for each parking place along Kalakaua Ave in Waikiki. Police would come along and book all bikes except for one. To solve the problem, early on a Sunday 50 or 60 riders parked one bike for each car space along Kalakaua Ave then moved the bike forward one space as the meter ran out. The problem of parking more then one bake was soon solved

Yeah. This idea we have in the 80's in Mönchengladbach, in the center. You have to see the happy cardrivers, on saturday, keyday for shopping, when the see one bike per place with enough space for a big car between. But we didn't allowed it. . .

I'm a rigging engineer. I can't begin to list the "all kinds of wrong" in this photo.

Tough wing mirrors though!

Thanks! I was trying to get the "Classic" Monument Valley pic (like the one shown below... taken a few years ago on an RV trip with my wife and our friends from Brussels, taken just a few miles further south from the one above), but, believe it or not, there was too much damned traffic!
