You learn something new every day.

I still think it's okay to have multiple bikes in a spot in SF.

For starters, it's not a DMV thing. I did learn, though, that there's a local ordinance in Hermosa Beach, CA against this.

In Hermosa Beach California, the metered parking places on the streets have a white circle painted on the curb. A motorcycle must have its tire against this circle or it will be cited. I was told that it was to make sure that multiple bikes could not park with only one of them having to pay. The first bike in should take the dot that is exactly in the middle of the space.

Or you can read it here:

10.32. 290 Limitation on Number of Vehicles per Marked Parking Space.

Only one motor vehicle at a time shall be permitted to park within parking space marks indicating authorized parking. (Prior code 19-78.1)
