Where is the best spot to park a motorcycle within a parking lot space?

Park so the rear of your bike ( or the front, if you’ve backed your bike into the space) is at the entrance of the space, similar to where the rear of the average car would be positioned.
In this way, a driver or other rider hunting for a space will see your bike and not start to enter the space and then come upon your bike at the last moment. If you are traveling with other riders, park two to a space, when possible, to minimize the group’s “footprint.”
In some lots the spaces are narrow, so there may not be enough room for two motorcycles to park side-by-side and still leave enough room for the doors of the adjacent cars to open. In that case, try staggering the bikes fore-and-aft.
Also when leaving a parking space, be alert for motorists distracted by their own quest to find a parking spot.
Keep it between the lines.
