So how do you guys store your bikes. We have a good size garage but with tools and such there is enough room for a car and not both a car and my bike. Giving how we never park in it it might be ok there.

here is my issue we have a business we run remodeling houses, trailers, and what ever else and we have employees coming and going plus one guy who were friends with brings his kids over. 4 boy all under 10 who I am sure would see the bike as a toy to sit on :spank::spank::bash:

SO I am thinking about getting a portable shed with a garage door on it. No windows a garage door and a regular door to walk in. Should be nice and secure. What size do you think I need, I would like to walk around the bike with enough room if I am carring say a tool box or something, I would guess atleast 2 feet each side 3 would be better?
I would like it long enough to get around the front and back side with a 10 foot long work space for tools and a welder I will be getting. Think 20x16 or some thing close.

A 20x16 is HUGE... way more space then needed for just the v-rod and work space. A 10x12 would be enough, but if you can afford the xtra space I say go for it! :thumb:

The need for storage space always expands to fill the available space. Get one as big as you can manage.

If you can blow it past the wife, go for the biggest!

Luckily no wife to deal with, Being a college student I still live at home so blowing it by dad is the issue. I doubt I will have a issue since I will be buying a nice portable garage that I would likely leave when I move. Plus like I said the garage is cheaper then lawyer fees when I kill someone who scratches my bike

Put a little Sea Foam in the tank, start it up for a few minutes. Put the ramp to the door of your house, Drive it up and into your spare room. Thats how i do it.

I leave both of mine in my shop. You can get a cover for under 40 bucks. The kids won't think of it as a climbing toy with a cover on it. It makes me cringe just thinking of little snotty-greasy kid fingers all over the chrome with Bubba sucking on a long neck and saying, "dang younguns!!! no matter what you tell em.....they just won't listen" And this is coming from a Mississippi native. Just my thoughts...
