Parking the bike in <insert UK city here>
Quick question: how do I know whether or not I have to pay for parking the bike in any UK city? We're currently in London and I never know whether those pay & display bays are free for motorcycles or not.
Is there maybe a list somewhere that I could print out and carry with me? I am really not willing to pay 120 GBP just because I didn't know how the system works. We're leaving London tomorrow but may be visiting other bigger cities (Liverpool, Leeds, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Nottingham, etc.). Also what about parking the bike on the sidewalk - good or bad idea?
