Problems parking your Rebels?
Where do you park your Rebels? In your own garage? On the street? In a garage, leased from a landlord? Are there any problems? What kind of?
I´m living in a flat; in a 24story-house.
The basement is designed for parking lots, mostly for cars and a few are for bikes and mopeds. As I got my bike, I leased a parking lot for it. They gave me one, but after I leased it, I saw , it was a small area with a curb all over it of ca. 5 inch hight.
I asked for another one, but actually there are no vacancies. All full. So I tried this "curbed" parking lot, but I could never climb with the Rebel over this peak of 5 inch.
So I parked the bike on the edge of the dedicated parking lot and told them so. I never hindered any other traffic. In the end, the landlord said, either I have to park the bike on my place (over this curb) or I have to leave the place.
So I leave it the next month and I´m searching frantically for another parking lot in another garage. I don´t like to put the bike on the street, because of weather, dust, dirt and bike - vandals or thiefs.
How do you manage such problems?
Are any of you able and willing to climb curbs in very small places every day? (I´ve learned the techniques of "curb-climbing" aeons ago in my drivining-school with sport touring bikes like Honda Dominator, but I think the Rebel is not the typical bike to do that...)
Here is the parking lot they gave me. You have to climb this curb in a very sharp angle and in the same time make a sharp turn to avoid the wall before you.
