Vespa parking in Basel/Mulhouse

Does anyone here know a safe (i.e. ticket-free and criminal-free) place to park a Vespa in Basel for a couple of days, as convenient to Mulhouse Airport as possible. Prefereably free.

The flight to Alicante out of Mulhouse is generally cheaper on the Saturday when it leaves at 6.30am. At this god-awful hour, it is not possible to take the train from Zurich and still arrive punctually. So, I'm considering riding there. (It's a 250cc, so will get there comfortably).

Thanks.

....hmmm, no response.

There must be someone on this forum living in Basel who can recommend a safe spot to park a motorbike for the weekend at least? I'd appreciate it.

Re: Vespa parking in Basel/Mulhouse

a) a Vespa is not a motorbike
b) Parking at the EuroAirport : car parks of the Basel-Mulhouse Airport

Re: Vespa parking in Basel/Mulhouse

1.) Well, It's a bike with a motor...
2.) I deliberately want to avoid paying exorborant parking fees

So, to summarise; free, city-based parking, that's safe and free. Oh, and also I don't want to pay anything cos I'm cheap. So, just to be clear: it must be free.

Cheers.

Re: Vespa parking in Basel/Mulhouse

And you'll be hitch hiking to the airport or paying for public transport?

Safe and free? So who pays for the security you want?

Re: Vespa parking in Basel/Mulhouse

Train the night before and sit in the airport overnight?
How cheap is that?
