Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question but what are the rules for parking motorcycling in cities and towns in the US?
I know how to park a bike but what are the parking rules (if any) which apply specifically to motorcycles?
In Sydney and other major cities in Australia (my home) we have dedicated motorcycle parking spaces and special rules for paid parking and parking time limits in spaces used predominantly by cars.
There are also allowances for motorcycles to use transit lanes (lanes reserved for cars with 3 or more people) and taxi/bus lanes.
So, what's the deal in the US (and Canada)?
If I want to park in San Francisco or LA city, do I look for motorcycle parking, can I park without paying the meter rate, or possibly stay longer than the declared time, or maybe park for the time but not need to put a ticket on my seat?
