In Virginia, if you have a permanent placard, you can get Handicap plates (including motorcycle, I have one).

Just last week when I went to Home Depot I say a guy on a bike with a passenger park in a handicapped spot. On the way into the store I noticed he had a handicapped licence on his bike. So I guess in Arizona you can get a handicapped plate for your bike if needed.

I wonder, like @X'N , if you could semi-permanently mount it partly under your license plate on the back. The license plate pinching it between the plate and the backing would most likely keep it from getting stolen, or it would tear trying to take it out, deterring thieves, and it would be easily visible to LEOs being right with the plate.

Hear in Idaho people who are not Handicapped use the card to get good parking. When I see them hop out of there car after beating me to a spot I tell them they don't look Handicapped to me, They just walk away.
Besides there are too many really fat people who use the card as well.

Sorry guys, I am simply not buying the notion that someone who can ride a motorcycle, especially a heavy cruiser (Trikes excluded) can at the same time claim they are sufficiently handicapped to not be able to walk an extra 10, 20, or 100 ft from a regular parking place to the door of the place of business.

You would understand if you had COPD. Riding the bike is, indeed, easy but pushing it back or forth will damn near kill you. It's not fun stopping every 20 or 25 feet to take a several minute break to catch your breath. The guy had to get his Doctor to write the DMV for him to get this place card perhaps you could get a clue from that.

Unless you have to deal with a handicap you have no idea of what you speak. I know plenty of prior service who are handicapped but you'd never know it. It isn't your place to judge and it's a shame that it happens. You don't have to like it but oh well deal with it.

I just had a bout with Vasculitis which left me weak in the legs and winded after just a small amount of moving my bike around. I know some would suggest getting a smaller bike but there no other bike other than my 1800 T.
I'll give it up when I die.
