Milwaukee sidewalk parking?

Does anyone here live downtown Milwaukee and get away with parking a real motorcycle on the sidewalk? I currently have a 78 Yamaha Chappy, but I want a real motorcycle again. Street parking is out of the question. I see the big scooters don't get tickets, but I'm afraid if I get something that actually looks like a motorcycle I'll get a ticket. Don't tell me to by a grom I want something that goes at least 80.

Probably best to call District 1 of the Milwaukee PD and ask what the facts are. That is what you will need to deal with.

The facts are that it's not legal to park anything on the sidewalk other than a moped or a bicycle, but the big scooters don't seem to get tickets despite the fact that they are technically motorcycles. The Chappy may only go 40, but at least everyone thinks it's cool. A 150cc scooter not so much.

Why is street parking out of the question, are you in an area with marked and metered spots? One of the main benefits of a motorcycle is that with parallel parking there is almost always a partial spot nearby.
