My absolute SUPER pet hate are those (bikes and cars) who leave their vehicles next to the fuel pumps while they go into the shop.  It is the ultimate of selfish behavior.

So being a BMW or HD rider counts as a disability  :peepwall:

Mentally disabled maybe?

BMW & Harley riders tsk tsk tsk.... :peepwall:

Identifying a Triumph as a BMW certainly qualifies you for parking in the disabled spot.   :imaposer:

Daai was die enigste kiki wat ek geneem het, maar somehow dink ek nie dit sal enige verskil maak nie.

Are you absolutely sure?  They do not seem to be able to choose a decent bike?   :peepwall:

Nor are they able to read a simple sign ....  :ricky:

I know this is just me, and my view won't be supported by the majority.
Whilst I fully acknowledge the fact that a biker has the same entitlement as any other vehicle owner, I still can't get my head around the idea of a single bike occupying a car parking slot.
Different if there's two or more bikes, but alone I generally look for a 'bikes only' area or otherwise a non-designated spot where I'm not in anyone else's way.
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

I kinda agree with you. What really gets me revving is the bloody scooters that park in a cars parking. 1 tiny little piece of mechanised steel and it takes the whole spot. It also parks right in the parking spot between two cars and guess what. . . . . . the rest of SA cagers all gap it for the spot and then see the scooter. The swearing and fingers and hands is hilarious sometimes.

Eish guys, we're wondering of the topic a bit but.....  I posted the pic cause I thought it tereblly selfish for an able person to park on disabled parking, bike or car it makes no diffs. He has owned up to it, and will probably do it again but hopefully think twice about it. For what it's worth my 640 with panniers take up a full car parking, my local mall has no bike parking other than a small open parking that is full most of the time, I pay the same fee as a car for parking in covered parking. What difference does it make weather I go there in my bakkie or bike, I spend the same amount of time and money there.

I think it depends on the layout at that specific marking area or mall. Some places cater for bikes and have a bike parking section, others have a lot of "islands" where you can park, others have lots of space next to the entrances, others again don't allow bikes around entrances etc then you have no alternative but to park in a parking bay. If it is paid for parking and there are no bike parking bays, then I also take up an entire parking to myself
