Like most of us, John Kerechek, an AMA member in Baltimore, Maryland, has had issues with a parking gate and his motorcycle; I ride a BMW R1200CM to work most days. I park in a multilevel parking garage and have a monthly parking pass. The problem I'm experiencing is being able to leave the parking lot. It seems, depending on the position of the motorcycle, the gate either opens or not -- mostly not. Most days an attendant has to manually open the gate.
