Happy New Year!
Over the last year, I have noticed a peculiar trend in Bangkok. Almost every parking area in Bangkok has a separate space for big bikes/superbikes. These separate parking places are generally better than the regular motorcycle parking spaces. Sometimes they are even free to park at. Here’re some examples
Terminal 21 has a separate space for motorcycles >500cc. The floor is even a different colour and the spaces are wider than usual.
CentralWorld not only has a separate “SuperBike” section, but also a SuperCar section (Not even BMWs/Audis/Mercedeses are allowed). The floor has a deluxe veneer. You can even see your reflection on the floor.
River City Bangkok has a separate space for “Big Bikes”. The parking attendant took pity on me and let me park there.
Bumrungrad hospital even has a whole separate ramp to enter the parking area for “SuperBikes”.
IconSiam‘s parking is probably the most exclusive with the cutoff at 800cc. Nothing below that is allowed.
I wonder if people are civil enough to not park at such places if their motorcycles don’t qualify, or if there parking attendant needs to check some kind of documentation to verify.
