Love the way Yahoo! and/or the AP have put this under "strange news." Yep, it sure is strange that property owners believe that they -- and not the COMMUNE-ists -- are the real owners.

What if it fell and conked someone on the head like a coconut?

Heh... that would tick me off too I don't blame the guy. I lived outside city limits or any jurisdiction for over 20 years. 4 years ago I moved into a town. Dang. I'm moving out again too. I can't believe how many stupid regulations all the city folk have to put up with!

2 counts against him:owning a dreaded internal combustion engine and not wearing a helmet around his place just to be safe.
I'll bet he smokes, too.

(The MRS wanted to go to an expensive place to eat so I took her to the gas station.)
For Woodworth, that meant receiving a city inspections letter telling him to pay a $100 administrative inspection fee and demanding that he remove the bicycle.
Harley Davidson Bicycle?

"Just because it looks funny doesn't mean we ought to be telling people how to run their lives and what they ought to do on their own property," Regan said. "Just because it's hanging doesn't mean it's going to fall."
OK, I give up, who is Regan? Stoopid AP writers!

Even though you purchased it, you insure it, you maintain it, and you live on it you do not own it. The town/city owns it and allows you to do the above for the privilege of paying an annual rent called property tax. If you do not pay this rent they will evict you from the property and rent it to someone else
Property rights do not exist where a property tax does.

When I lived in the hills of New Hampshire, my neighbor would host a party every fall, where we would hoist a foreign built bike into a tree, get drunker than the skunks, and beat the heii out of it, until it fell from the tree. Some were bloodied, many were bruised, and all were sore. In other words, everybody had a great time.
