    BMW Parking

    I've been working most of the year on an addition onto my garage and a makeover of the rest of it. Just got the bike parking space all done up. I seperated the bike space from what will be my woodwrking are with a partition wall and then spruced up the spot to make it worthy of the marque.

    Hope the logo police don't come and confiscate my new floor. Its RaceDeck tiles in a familiar looking patern.



    My wife hasn't ridden her Bonneville since getting the F800ST five years ago, so I made an elevated platform for it to reside on until she decides what she wants to do with it. At least its not taking up floor space now.



    Her F800ST on the parking dolly tucked in under the Triumph. The reason the platfrom is not to the other wall is to make a space for my Kendon stand up lift to live when not in use.



    My K1200GT is next.



    And finally, my F800GS.

    Very cool. I have to make sure my sweetie does not see your pics (unless you want to come out to Vegas and do my garage.) We have a 3 car garage and she can't understand why I need two bays of it for 3 motorcycles and a golf cart!

    Very nice

    Sometime could you roll out the dolly with the bike on it and get a picture from the left side?

    You're crazy to park a bike on a platform

    That's a very nice setup you have made in the corner of the garage. You must have very strong friends.

    Just one strong friend. I used my engine crane to lift it up there.

    Since you said bikes, I'm guessing you're talking to me???

    We have an addition on the back of our two car garage.
    When we looked at this house and saw the space on the back of the garage, we knew it was meant for us
    I need Ed to come down and work on our walls and floor.

    BTW - My compliments on a nice job.

    Nice job !!...

    I have a question, what is that insulation material on the garage door? Is it one sheet, or sheets butted together? Looks very nice & efficient !
