Wow, if he wouldn't let a fellow BMW rider park next to him, just think what he would have said if you rode a KLR!

That may have been selfish asshat behavior on the other GS rider's part, but then you go and post a pic of his plate number here?

This thread needs to go to the basement after you prune the offending pic.

Not sure what the big deal is about a plate showing, but there you go. Pic removed.

Mondays get the best of us all. I would probably blur that number, but I would leave the Austin dealership plate frame showing.

I don't know if this is a basement worthy thread, it's GS specific, but it might be better in Tejas regional or the dark arts section.

There was plenty of room on the burned out grass next to him or on the patio...big to do over nothing.

We know nothing about the guy.

Perhaps he trailers because he is physically unable to ride far?

Perhaps he's a recluse/loner?

At least we know he OWNS a bike, that's a step in the right direction.

Judge not unless you be judged.

I'd never park in front of someones trailer, how's he supposed to get it out?

You suppose that's his Honda Element with the tow ball and plate showing? Looks a little too crowded in that corner to me.

I went for a Sunday ride a while ago and noticed a Harley taking up a parking space all by himself. What a jerk I thought as I drove past. Luckily I found another empty spacer and backed my bike in taking only a bit of the spot for my self. When I came back there were four other bikes sharing the space with my GS.

I hope that helps to make things better for you. :)

I plan to hit Ruidoso, NM from Hell Paso TX in Aug and if I park, I definitely leave enough room for others. If I come out of my motel and see a bunch of other bikes next to my Shadow Aero, I think "photo op!"

Normally, I'd agree that a fellow rider, of any brand, that wouldn't share his spot is an asshole. In this case, it looks like you parking next to him would have blocked in his trailer. So, given those circumstances, he probably didn't want blocked in.

But even if he was an ass, let it go man! Ride your ride and be happy! It's not worth the heartburn you got from being angry enough to post this.

PPS He did have a trailer parked there. Maybe he was concerned he would be blocked in when he was ready to leave.

that has not been your attitude to me jimmy
you ignore my pm's about buying your dvd's
you attacked my disabillity

i would still share my spot with you
i would like a friendly cat with other riders
i don't care what they ride.
i do have 4 bmws
i am also old and fat

When I'm on a road trip and parked for the night, I tend to encourage some other rider to park next to me. 1) I might have someone to talk to and 2) more than one parked bike in a stall makes it seem like a gang is near. It's easy to mess with one person, but harder with two or more.

If you ever meet me parked at a motel then, by all means, fill up the space.
