Well, one could say that the whole gate problem hinges on those
biker/hiker assholes who do not respect private property and think that
they are somehow better than everyone else because their chosen activity

Yes, really. What do you think I said it for.
It wasn't a truck, it was a white or cream colored car. It might have
said amzn** on it, on a magnetic sign, or maybe nothing.
**But I might have only seen amzn in the tracking. when Amazon
delivers, the tracking says amzn.
And I talked to the driver and he said he worked for Amazon. Satisfied
How this goes with what the mailman told me, I'm not sure. Maybe two

I can't speak to their employment status (part vs. full) but they sure dress
like USPS employees and they get to drive those red, white & blue right-hand

These are good ideas, and we've thought of a few others over the past few
days as neighbors wandered by our local roadblock:
1. Put up a gate, with good signs, but leave it open.
2. Same as above, but make it a proximity open.
3. Make it open at the time the post office arrives.
4. Put *one* mailbox outside the gate and have it open whenever *that*
mailbox is opened (and stay open for, say, 1/2 hour to allow egress)
5. Close the gate only on Sundays
Everything really hinges on the post office who won't do gate codes.
Can you say 'cluster box'?
It's what people who really live on private roads around here use. Large
parcels are left in bigger lockers and the key is left in your mailbox.
Maybe use an audio signature where any motor noise and the gate automatically opens.
However, that obnoxiously loud potato-potato-potato noise,
unique to a douche bag on a Harley, would keep the gate locked.
You might be surprised at the folks who ride Harleys. Farmers,
lawyers, and people that belong to groups like Bikers for Christ.
Some are baby boomers that missed out on riding when they were
younger. Better the Harley sound than the rice rockets that sound
like they're turbine powered.
You probably won't see "kids" riding a Gold Wing or HD trike.
New ones can run in excess of $35,000.
