    Motorcycle ban???????????

    I had some business earlier today at an apartment complex in a nearby city. Not a run down hole in the wall but fairly expensive places for this area.

    It's the first time I had ever been there so when I was driving into the complex I was looking for the signage to tell me where the main office is.

    I noticed a maintenance vehicle approach me form the opposite direction with a guy with his head out the window and gesturing to me.
    I stopped and he pulled up and said you had better turn around with that thing and get out of here.

    I said, first of all what is the that thing that you speak of? He said your motorcycle (I was on my Harley) you had better get out before she sees you coming.

    I said before who sees me coming? He said Sharon, she hates those things. Well who is Sharon I say, He says the director.

    As it turns out she is the one I am going to see so I proceed to the office. Before I am parked Sharon is half running to me yelling who are you? I state my name and she calms down a little and says well I guess you can come in for a minute.

    She tells me they had an accident some years back involving a motorcycle and have not permitted them on the grounds since. Wanting to make points (not really) I say it's a good thing no one had an accident with their washing machine everyone would be walking around in stinky, dirty clothes.

    The moral of the story, it's not just guns, stupid is stupid no matter what the inanimate object is.

    Actually in Boca Raton, most neighborhoods banned trucks and motorcycles. You cannot own or park one in the community. They will not let you through the gate driving one.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Boca Raton is were all the upper crust natives of Miami live. So needless to say I am not happy my sister lives there, thankfully she does have a gun. Which has already gotten rid of one burglar, you shout out "Thats it I'm shooting you" they tend to run out of the house.

    She lives in a gated community with security and had a burglary? Shows you are in charge of yourself, no one else can protect you all the time.

    I did not think that would be legal to do

    It is private property and according to the Admin (read Commandant) is OK'd by NYS. There are over 100 apartments there so they effectively have banned hundreds of people from owning a motorcycle.
    That is unless they don't mind leaving it somewhere else and never bringing it home.

    You also have the choice of not living there.

    You agreed to abide by their rules when you signed the lease, if you live there. If you don't like my scoot I just take my money elsewhere.

    I know of one upscale tourist destination in southern Florida has an outright ban on motorcycle on their property. There is motorcycle parking but it's located OFF PROPERTY!

    This type property has rental property for people like the Trumps, Gates, etc. They rent to multi-millionaires. They are VERY picky about how their employees appear to this high end clientelle.

    The same thing applies to mustaches UNLESS they were hired with the mustache fully grown. It's amazing what some places ban all the same.
