What do you think?
I am making my license here and my teacher said that motorcycle parking is a mess: In every other country I know, you are by default allowed to park a car unless there is a sign that prohibits it. In Switzerland it is the other way around: it is illegal to park anywhere which is not a designated parking space. So far so good for cars. But: It is of course illegal to park a motorcycle on a car parking space.

So in principle it is illegal to park it anywhere unless the handfull of designated, as in "painted", motorcycle parking spaces. Rule of thumb is: Make sure it is not on the street, but on a broad line of sidewalk, easily leaving plenty of space for strollers/wheelchairs and being far away from any potential fire access.

Still: If the traffic police has a PMS day, you have a fine. Accept it as some sort of tax... otherwise you just get annoyed on a monthly basis.
