Fellow Motorcyclists: Where to keep my new toy?

Afternoon all, I've searched and found a few similar queries on the ole forum here but none seem to have had much luck.
Rather unfortunately the parking allowance in my development changed the week after I purchased my little 125 and I now have it in a friends front garden in Brixton!

I'd love to bring it back, somewhere reasonably close to Long Lane (Tower Bridge end if we're being picky) and am currently battling the agents and landlord of Clay Court (next to Blue Lion place) to allow me to use the redundant space in the car park there.

In the meantime, surely there must be either someone paying for a car space they would like to split; someone that has off-road space for a little 'un or someone that could advise me of where to put it. I see numerous bikes locked to various railings all over the place (in estates, on the road, down little alley ways) but I'm never quite sure of their legality and as such am loath to risk the fines and pain in the bum of retrieving my MBX from an over zealous clamping co.

So, SE1'ers, any suggestions.

PS my pocket doesn't stretch to the asking for any of these offers:
100-180p.c.m. (I'd rather sell the bike than add that to the running cost, as I currently have a car and park that in a non regulated back street in Rotherhithe.

Cheers all.

You might get away with leaving it at the Corporation Minories Car Park...
City of London - Motorcycle Parking

They seem to suggest that there is a 24hr rule, but I'm not sure if it's all that well enforced...

The Pie Guide is good - I did some work for them on the heavy goods vehicles, loading unloading restrictions in Hackney.
