ya i know about BC, my brother lived up there for awhile. i remember when we used to go up there the starbucks (i think starbucks) robson near the cactus club, always had a ton of bikes just line up right outside.

and rusty that seattle dot map, just had me smashing my mouse and keyboard like a crazed monkey trying to figure it out.

also just to be clear, i am looking for a long term secure (preferrably under ground / covered) parking near belltown, because that is were i will be getting a place. i would wish for 24hr access but sometimes you cant get your wish.

i posted something about this a few weeks ago actually. you can park in restricted parking zones in seattle with a motorcycle. so when it says RPZ - 10 for zone 10 or something and like 2 hour parking from 6a-6p etc, you can just park there and it's legal to stay longer than the posted 2 hours. its in the seattle municipal code and was legal as of january 2010

here's link to thread
Seattle Motorcycle Parking

Seattle Municipal Code 11.72.351
Restricted parking zone.
A. No person shall stop, stand or park a vehicle in violation of the posted or marked restrictions or when a permit or other authorization issued by the city is required as a condition for parking unless an RPZ permit pursuant to chapter 11.16 SMC or a disabled placard permit or license plate pursuant to RCW 46.16.381 or 46.16.390 is displayed in a specified place on the vehicle. As of January 1, 2010, motorcycles and scooters are authorized to park in an RPZ without an RPZ permit.

i find it funny that they improperly used an instead of a in front of RPZ in the law. unless theres some strange rule in english i'm unaware of

I run the valet at the Crowne Plaza at 6th and Seneca. I do a 50% discount on posted rates for bikes, so if you are in before 9am it would be $7.00 for the day.

This is not true. There are a few spots in pioneer square that are not marked where bikes can park free and not be ticketed. Granted, they have recently become farther and fewer between.

I have used them for the last few years and not received tickets. Before using them I spoke with two separate parking enforcement people. They told me that if there was not a no parking sign or striping on the ground, they had nothing to ticket me for. They also said this was true even if I could clearly see that there had once probably been a sign or striping.

You could debate the semantics of legal vs not illegal, but you still won't get ticketed in those spots if you follow a few simple guidelines.

I bet the posting of your picture on the bike with a sign saying "ticket this bike and I will date your daughter" helps just a bit.

You really expect a blind senile old fuck like me to check the date on a thread before commenting? Go whine to the asshole that bumped an old thread and leave us gibbering old fools alone.

Besides, haven't you ever heard the saying 'better late than never'?

Yeah...I don't really think we need to get bogged down in the details do we?
