I guess this thread is more relevant to states where you can park for free on the footpath. For the commuters out there, would you pay for secure parking in the city rather than for free on the footpath? I have the option to park under the building at work for $44 a month. Sounds cheap and convenient (car is over $300pm) but over a year its about the same as my insurance excess any way. 24/7 secure parking if I leave the bike at work and get on the turps after work is about the only justification I can come up with so far. Any thoughts?
