:evil: I'm not in a very good mood now. I just copped a $75 fine. I saw the parking inspector doing the other side of the street, so I went to my bike (which admittedly was overtime by a fair bit) to move it. Helmet on, motor started and warming up. The bastard crossed the road and fined me while I was getting ready to move it. If I'd been in a car I would have been gone, and no problem, just another anonymous cage in the street, how would he know which one I was after a couple of laps? But because I'm on the bike I get pegged. Me being one of two motorbikes who park on the street (the other being a black spada), he's going to be able to get my plate at some stage. How would I be able to argue that he didn't see it as I moved off, or had already recorded it earlier in the day? It's bad enough that there's no official bike parking in the streets around here, and that I have to contend with people moving their cars and looking for parking spots instead of paying attention to the road while I have a warm engine. I'm not prepared to do that on the bike when the engine's cold and likely to stall or not rev. It's just not safe.
