This bothers me

I went to pick up some Korean food for dinner tonight and saw this bike parked on a sidewalk. 

Good grief! Does the world owe this person some kind of favor! I can't park a car where he did. And I wouldn't park Max there either.

It's wrong. It's rude. And I think people will  react negatively to bikers in general.

Ironically, probably about 30 yards away is a covered parking garage with designated motorcycle parking available. 

Maybe this person can't walk that far but I doubt that. 

It just bugs me.

Ride on and Carpe Diem my good friends.


  1. Bugs me too, the arrogance of it is so annoying!

  2. +1, add me to the "bugs" list. And it isn't any one "type" of rider either. Almost like an entitlement...

  3. Jimbo cpa etc:

    don't get me started on cars in handicapped spots

  4. Sometimes this kind of thing bugs me and other times not. It's probably more about some defect related to my ego than any real injury or insult. The case pictured didn't bother me at all but that could be because I'm in my easy chair with a hot tea and a cookie. Maybe I should look again after I get out of some annoying meeting at work.
