Use amenity=motorcycle_parking tag to identify a designated area for parking motorcycles, used by the public, customers or other authorised users

How to map

Use a node for smaller motorcycle parks, or an area for a larger motorcycle park (but not both for the same facility) and tag it with amenity=motorcycle_parking. If you don't know the actual motorcycle park area or don't have time to draw it out then just tag a node.
