Chuck, our favorite scooter aficionado and photographer extraordinaire from One A Day - Mostly Seattle commented on Tuesday's shot of the motorcyclist and pedestrians on the sidewalk that motorcycles and scooters definitely are not allowed to ride on the sidewalks like bicycles, but parking them on the sidewalk was not as clear--sometimes you might get ticketed, sometimes not. Well, no sooner had he said it than I found an example of someone who won't be having to worry about being ticketed, and thought I'd show it to you. A motorcycle officer needed to help some other officers direct a particularly tangled couple of intersections worth of bumper to bumper traffic on 5th Ave. There were no on-street parking spaces to be had, so he parked his huge, pristine HD up on the sidewalk. Here's a close up for you, too.
