at the local malls i park right next to the security tower, in the same spot, everytime. both hulen and the parks mall the tower is out in the parking lot next to one of the little islands. there is just enough room for me to get in between it and the curb. i have always parked torwards the open end of the space in hopes they see the back end of the bike. also try to park where the camera has a good view.
Mental stability notwithstanding, what differentiates the road racer from his "short track" kin does lay somewhere between the ears!!
