Does the motorway count? Parked on the hard shoulder?

This does beg the question, that if I can finally pry a Blue Crippo Badge from Northampton Council, how do I leave it securely displayed on the bike?

You could go for an allover blue paintscheme with white wheelchair symbol, fairings and all ...............maybe.

Depends if it was to do something unrelated to emergencies. I'm unsure how it stands for say parking under a bridge to change into rain gear, which I have done a few times. Possibly naughty.

Mind you, keep safe, folks the hard shoulder's a dangerous place.

The other plus of this thread is its trawling up a few scenic pics, but mainly truely mediocre pictures

Hmmmm, tempting - if only as it would stop people saying my bike's 'black'.

Couldn't you just fit it into a second tax disc holder?

It would about fill the screen seeing they're the size of numberplates

Hmmm interesting way to avoid a parking ticket? Crippo badge and covering your number plate

Got lots of pics of us illegally parked in the UK

I thought a few from further afield would do instead

On the pavement in Arras


On the pavement in Turin


Chained to a bollard on a pedestrian island in La Rochelle


On the pavement at the top of Los Ramblas in Barcelona


Nearly had our bike towed away in Barcelona
