Safe moto parking at apartments?

I know that keeping a motorcycle outside an apartment is just asking to get it stolen, but I will have to do just that in a short while. I was thinking about chaining it to the stairs in the breezeway, but someone told me the firemarshall would be all over the apartments about that. About the best I could do is pull it up on the sidewalk and chain it to a small tree. I'd like to buy some kind of concrete anchor thing (seen them advertised in British mags) to chain the bike to. Or, maybe I should just break my lease and share a house with a few college cuties.

Maybe not so much for security, but it'll keep it out of sight at least (and out of the weather, too):

I'm thinking that's what it's gonna come down to me doing. If the apartment makes a fuss about it, then I will ask if I can have a reserved parking spot with a permanent anchor in the concrete. At my buddies apartment in Memphis, they built things under the stairs to keep people from parking their bikes in the breezeway.

Make sure you have insurance. Cause most likely you'll have it stolen...

As said before, just get a storage unit or get a car...

Nice. I would need a crane to get mine into my apartment. But then if I had a crane, I would just chain it to that and be done with it.
