Where is there residency in the Loop? I'd put a call into the companies that own all the garages in the loop. Standard Parking, GO Parking, etc - Drive thru the area and get the names of the garages - Then call their Corp offices and discuss rates and such

Theres residency all over the loop, you just gotta look for it lol ... as far as the parking garages, they want RIDICULOUS rates just for parking a bike there ... my work already pays my 250/month parking bill for my car because i work from my car every night...

Haha, it is a bit of a haul, but if it would save me that much dough, it might almost be worth it ...

As far as tucking it in front of the car ... we dont have assigned spaces, so the garage is frowning upon that lol

Why not call a few of the "Storage" places over in River North or River West and ask $$ on a Storage Unit - Might only be like $50-$75 a month?
