No motorcycles allowed......

I had an interesting encounter today. I was scheduled to conduct a class at a large (300+ acres of land) crane & lift manufacturing company this afternoon. It was a nice day, the first day without rain in awhile, so I rode my V to work as I usually do on nice days. We have a brand new client and I was scheduled to conduct a training class at their facility. So I arrive about 15 minuted before the class was to start so I would have time to set up. When I got to the security booth at the front of their facility (on my V) the security guard came running out of the booth and told me "Why are you here? No motorcycles are allowed beyond here", "you'll have to leave it here at the gate and walk back and its a heck of a walk". I unhelmeted and proceeded to tell them who my contact person was and where I was supposed to go. Long store short, I had to leave my motorcycle outside the gate because apparently they do not allow two wheeled vehicles inside their facility. They did give me a ride in their truck back to where I was supposed to be, but I just thought, what a strange rule, and after talking with a few of the people who work there, its not a very popular rule either. They never bothered to mention the motorcycle rule when we were scheduling the training nor did I think to ask if motorcycles were welcome.

Strange. We have some large timber companies (whorehouser) up here that don't let motorcycles on thier land or roads either. Of course they don't seem to mind the dumbass that goes up and shoots his washing machine to death and leaves it in the forest.:eek:fftopic:

On the flip side of the issue, I stayed at a small B&B down a dirt road in Northern AZ. where the couple had placed about a half dozen metal plates in the ground for kickstands. Never saw that before but obviously M/C s were welcome.

It has to be for liability reasons...some over zealous safety nut thought it was a good idea or maybe they got a discount on their insurance for not allowing motorcycles.

This would be my guess also........

I'm a truck driver, we have a couple of customers that we deliver to who have policies like this. One customer has a large area off to one side with it's own entrance, and very specific signs at the other entrance's: No Motorcycles, ATV's, 3-wheeled bikes, trikes, or other open vehicles permitted.
