This might be ob­vi­ous, or it might not, but park­ing the Har­ley-david­son Street Glide can be a real pain at times. It’s very long, so sticks out of the end of mo­tor­cy­cle bays, which al­ways leaves me wor­ried that some­one will clip the front wheel. It’s also very wide, so it needs a lot of room to get it in and out, and it takes up the space of two bikes. Fi­nally it’s very low, so the ex­hausts strike kerbs when on the side stand mean­ing you can’t al­ways push it all the way into a bay, leav­ing it to stick out even more. I’ve taken to park­ing the Har­ley across bays now which kind of negates one of the main ben­e­fits of hav­ing a bike and it seems to up­set peo­ple quite a lot!
