Motorcycle practice place?

Hi everyone! Does anyone know of a place (Like a parking spot, size maybe 10-20m) outside of any residential area, where it would be possible to practice with a motorcycle without disturbing people nearby?
Somewhere inside the triangle Zurich - Schaffhausen - St Gallen if possible, but even till Bern would be helpful!

The local official places are full nearly 24/7, with 3-4 others already practicing and swerving all around, to the point where I am always nervous of driving into them, or them driving into me.
Have been looking at Google maps, but the potential places I found turned out to be gravel, or "private area, no trespassing", or closed by a barrier after working hours, and in one case it was an industrial area but apparently with a flat on the top floor of one house, where a window promptly opened and asked why I was making so much noise.

Re: Motorcycle practice place?

I know a place that people use in the evenings for this once everybody has left the office. It's an industrial estate parking lot.
Are you looking for during the day or in the evening?

You can try the parking lot at the intersection of Schaffhauserstrasse and Balz-Zimmermann-Strasse? It is pretty large and normally quite empty. I did my first drives there

Re: Motorcycle practice place?

Time of the day is not important, evening after working hours is probably easier in an industrial parking space?

And will also try the one near the airport, thank you!
