IDS aside, I was hoping we could all share good locations for parking downtown Minneapolis. Our new office is up by Kieran's and I was hoping for close-by parking, but it's pretty hard to find full-on legal motorcycle parking just looking from the street. Especially this early in the year when the lots don't have many cycles parking.

And has anyone had luck going to their building management and asking for permission to park in a corner or nook or cranny? Can't hurt to try, I suppose, but I'm assuming they'll default to "no" just because they don't want to worry about it. Pessimist, yeah.

$5 a day for this spot in the middle of the warehouse district:

This lot has parking (you can even see 'em!):
http://maps.google.com/?t=h&ll=44.979675,-93.269173&spn=0.000835,0.001684

And at $4 a day, you can park inside this ramp, southeast corner:

The Gateway ramp supposedly has parking, but the drone at the paybooth said they didn't:

In my building, 50 south 6th street, down by the loading dock, there is a bike rack that they allow tenents to park scooters at no charge.

You turn in right after Ike's on the downhill portion, not the regular parking garage, which is the second entrance. And the rack is tucked to the side of the ramp.

I imagine that you could say that you work for Fallon or Dorsey & Whitney or pick out some other tenent and just park there. If you wanted to give that a try.

HCMC Parking Ramp, Chicago and 6th or 7th street, $2/day

City Ramp at 6th street and 5th Ave (enter on 5th), top secret motorcycle parking on the ground level, $4/day.

I think that most city owned ramps with special motorcycle parking - parking is $4/day.
