Fancy parking on the path. We would get thrown in jail, if we got caught doing that in the UK

Generally accepted in Australia so long as you don't impede pedestrian traffic. Odd that you say that though, last year I took my Norvin to England and rode it around for 2 1/2 months. Not knowing any different I just parked on the foot path every where. Only one instance where a parking inspector asked me to move my bike about ten feet further along the foot path.

Yes, same has happened with me; although parking officers are just as aggressive in both countries.

Cambridge though, is home to the elite and residents must subscribe to the 'thou shall adopt all manner of moral and public etiquette.'

I fondly remember the Elizabeth Street motorcycle shops (Melbourne) and other city street parking:

In LA usually no one will say anything. The civilians will typically key your bike (or car) and the parking enforcement will simply walk up and issue you a fine even if you are present by the vehicle. Funny part is that if you are familiar with LA, with exception of Downtown and Hollywood blvd thereís hardly any pedestrian foot traffic. Yeah,itís a great town alright...

Parking on the foot path is a Victorian thing. You can't do it anywhere else in Aus, so I just take a whole car park I heard Victoria were looking to do away with it. While motorcycling groups in other states are pushing for it.

As above - do that in New South Wales and they tow your bike.

Only allowed in Vic and SA?

Faster and Faster untill the fear of death subsides.....

Didn't think it was in SA. Some parts of the Adelaide seem to have specific areas for bikes. But I'm pretty sure you can't just pull up anywhere.
