The owner of this one and his dog were quite amused when I asked if I could pose my bike right next to his car for a picture and why.

I really wouldn't care if that were my bike, in the photo. However as soon as the bike pulls away, you have a completely different scenario. Another Cager is gonna want that spot, and then it gets contentious.I was parked in front of Panera in the center of my space. I watched a gal in a quad cab pickup pull the nose of it into MY space, almost touching my bike, before backing and straightening out and pulling into the space next to me. I was hot. Gee, if Bug had been sitting there instead, she would've just plowed into him, I'm sure.
Was this "rally" in Germany in the early 1940's? Time to move where people are free of overlord do-gooders...when you find that place, post it here.I remember at a motorcycle rally years ago, every bike registered for the rally was given a sticker to put on their bike that would serve as a waiver for the rule of limiting one bike to one parking spot.
