...Sydneysider's don't have motorbike parking allowed on footpaths like you do in Melbourne. my question is, do you think allowing the footpath parking impacts on general public perception about motorbikes? And if so is this, or could this be, a positive perception? Eg: when I do visit Melbourne, I really notice the parked motorbikes and they are much more visible by their presence. Especially if you need to navigate round them etc. It also seems to me, that it could assist in positive perception or acceptance via close proximity to motorbikes by the public, which then becomes the norm. Whereas in Sydney, they are visible on the roads, but not so much anywhere else. Was going to post this on another thread, but did not want to take it off on a tangent.
