[Tagging] NEW APPROACH : Feature Proposal tag "motorcycle friendly" for accomodations

Hello all,

there's a totally different, interesting approach from Dieterdreist :

Assessment of tag
Here's an example: drying_room=yes, motorcycle_parking=yes,
motorcycle_repair_tools=yes, motorcycle_tour_tips=yes. I.E. these are 4
tags rather than one, and the drying room for instance isn't something
particularly related to motorcycle tourists, it can by used by everyone
with the need to dry his clothes. --10:55, 7 March 2017

As I mentioned above this discussion entry, I'd tend to the "KISS" solution,
unless I see that especially the tag "drying_room" would make sense for
(mountainbike, hiking, ski/snowboard etc.)

motorcycle_parking already exists :

So what's left is

Regarding the latter, I just don't see how this may be bound to either
"motorcycle" or "skiing",
as several Hotels have Skiing in Winter and Motorbike guests in Summer.

Any Ideas how this may be solved ?

I could imagine
motorcycle:parking=yes (then the existing key would need to be changed)
drying_room=yes (new key necessary)

Just don't got a good idea about the "information material" (how to be
used with other items ?)

I think shop=motorcycle should stay a "shop"?

There's currently a problem to differ between a motorcycle dealer
and a motorcycle clothes shop, for example Louis, Polo, Hein Gericke.
According to the current definition you may use
together with
clothes=motorcycle (this is still in "draft" status)
I could imagine to use
instead ?

Hi all,

thanks to Martin for the clarification.

In the discussion of the (former voted) wiki entry :

I referred to the definition of the German automobile club :

The German automobile club has the following criteria :

  * (Theft) safe and secure motorcycle parking areas.
  * Facilities for wet clothes.
  * Tools for minor repairs
  * Extensive information material (including tour suggestions,
    excursion tips, road maps, useful addresses for motorcyclists)


Those four points should be given if an item is categorized as "yes".

"No" means they don't accept motorcyclists (seldom, but exists).

As there are certainly accommodations
which just don't care about your means of transport,
there is also a third option, which I called "customary",
as this categorization is already in use (for nudism)

So I think the criteria is quite clear and not "opinionated".
In case the description could be improved, please let me know in the
"discussion" :
