    Where you keep your Bikes

    On a recent thread, the question was "How many bikes do you have?". The most
    listed was Paul and Voni with 11. Show us a picture of where you store so many
    bikes. Show your garage, shop, barn, or storage building.

    Don't have a picture to show, but I've only got four bikes and am about out of room. My bikes share the two-stall garage with my woodshop. We joke that with more bike purchases planned, we will need to add on the garage. So a 26 x 40 addition is going on sometime in the next couple of years. That should work - for a while.
    '09 BMW 1200 GSA, 2013 BMW 700GS, 2000 Goldwing SE, '09' V Star 950, '09 Honda Rebel,
    '77 Honda 750A. Holding at six til I get new garage built - need more room for more bikes!

    I don't know if this applies since I only have one bike, but here's where she rests between runs:

    I try to keep mine on the road...

    Seriously, in the garage.
    The jeep is relegated to the weather.

    It's a new garage. A work in progress if you will...

    That would be a pretty impressive clean and jerk, to get those bikes down.

    I keep the mower in the back part of the garage in the winter so I can keep it hooked to a battery tender. In the summer the mower is in a shed in the back yard.

    I usually tell people I bunny hop them up onto the deck
    I have a sliding door at the back of the main garage giving me access to the bike parking area.

    Can't really do a photo right now. We are in Minnesota riding 2 of the bikes, an R1150R and F800S. One K75, 2 F650s, an R27 and Honda CA160 are parked in Kansas. 2 K75s, an R1100RS, a Kawasaki KL250 and Yamaha TW200 are parked in Texas. One K75 is in Iowa.

    Whoops - that's 13, not 11

    I'll see if I can find any existing pictures on this computer but they are probably stored on a hard drive in Texas.

    The bikes in Kansas are in a 30'x40' shop building. In Texas they are in a separate garage or room off the carport at the shop building. In Iowa - in a garage. Lots of room several places.

    Paul Glaves;

    And we thought you were a good mechanic. Instead of fixing your bikes while
    on a long trip, you just hitch a ride to the next big city where you have another
    bike ready to go.

    Three go in my garage - any more and the cars won't fit. My most recent addition is in a 5X10 storage space in a storage facility close by. I always feel bad leaving whichever one it is off by themselves, but they all get to spend quality time with their siblings.
