I also think you handled it well. Remember it's easy to pick a fight and be a aggro and moer the kak out of him. No solution- Let him feel he is the winner and give him some credit and let him feel good. On the end of the day you get out of the situation as a the overall winner without any issues and he will not give you any kak in future.
Since I have changed my attitude towards others and (trying) to be kind- things have worked out a whole lot better in my life. He has a job to do and most probably had a complaint regarding your bike- now he has the answers.
He needs some training in human relations by not even introducing himself, but again you handled it well. :thumleft:

But there is an interesting question here. I dunno the answer.

Could a duly elected body corporate of a sectional title pass a rule that bans motorcycles (of any type) in a complex ?

I checked the act :-

Sectional Titles Act, 1986 (Act No. 95 of 1986)
Part VIII Rules and Bodies Corporate
35. Rules

. . . . .

3)        Any management or conduct rule made by a developer or a body corporate shall be reasonable, and shall apply equally to all owners of units put to substantially the same purpose.

http://www.acts.co.za/sec_titles/index.htm

Now is it reasonable to say a quiet bike (like mine) is not allowed, but a noisy car is - that does not seem reasonable.

I think it is reasonable to argue that if a bike is allowed on a public road it may not be prevented from a complex.

I think you need to check the house rules and if there is a "no bike" rule the that is another fight.

If there is no "no bike" rule then you can gently tell him to mind his own business.

basically the house rules are there to make sure that all the folk can enjoy their ownership - "enjoy" in the legal sense.

Wonderful idea.  As he owns a house in the complex,  he will return pretty soon to face the Manager backed by many other irrate owners.  That would keep him busy for some time.
