dude this is a great idea. i asked about something like this just over a year ago but never followed up.

i'm in nyc (riverdale) and i can offer a couch or thermarest. the place is a studio so don't expect a ton of privacy. but one or two people could crash with no problem. plenty of safe on the street parking. safe residential neighborhood just north of manhattan. public transportation to anywhere.
bmw makes motorcycles now?

In between houses at the moment so I can only offer a floor to sleep on. Though I do have a well setup garage, tools and a lift for a passing through traveler.

I'm In Atlanta right where 75/85/20 all meet, pretty much in the middle of the city. No tent space but I have a spare bedroom, shower, and a garage with limited tools if needed.

I'm in too...

About 10 miles NW of Terre Haute, Indiana. I've got space for several tents either in the woods or at the edge of a field (we have 16 acres, my folks next door have 70, most of it's wooded). Liquor store is roughly 8 miles distant. I have a small collection of cheap tools and a cheap motorcycle lift in a very cluttered and crowded garage. A little advance notice via email is a good thing, and I don't always check it on the weekends...

Oh yeah, wireless Internets, too..

Like it says, I'm just 3 short miles north of Baja in beautiful Chula Vista, California. Futon, huge couch, HDTV in every room, I'll move my car outta my garage for a couple days if you need wrenching, etc.

You can pitch a tent in the yard, but you might have a goat trying to sleep with you.

I also have a futon you can use.

I'm 50 miles west of Chicago in St Charles, Il. I am south of Interstate 90 and east of Interstate 39. I have space for camping, a garage with lift and tools for repair, and a trailer to help haul you if you need it ( sometimes ). Well versed on the whole northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin area. Have a Honda dealer 5 miles away, Yamaha about 20 miles, a BMW dealer about 25 miles away and a Kawasaki about 20 miles away.

I'm in Cary, NC (outside of Raleigh). Plenty of yard space for a tent, as well as a spare bedroom. I've got a garage you can park the bike in. I can also provide the food and beer.

Stop by anytime.

I'm in TJ (that is... Tijuana), la libertad section, west side of the airport. 4 bedrooms, plenty of room for a few. I have some tools, but not much, I know a few local bike shops here in TJ + there is one under 10 miles away in the US.

EDIT 02 Jun 2011. I don't live in that big house anymore, but I can offer a place to sleep, fewer tools than last time, and still close to the Otay Mesa Border Crossing.

EDIT 20 Mar 2012. I'm building out my tools and space again. I have capacity for most repairs, compressor, a few spare (used) knobbies, work bench, lighting, couch and TV.

EDIT 21 Mar 2013. I'm now located in Herlong, CA, 1 hour north of Reno, NV. I have tools, garage and a fridge to store your beer. I still have a place in TJ that is available, but only to sleep for a night.

IN - what a great idea!!! Thanks for organizing it.

Fairfax, VA - 1/2 mile from the Orange Line Vienna metro station & on-ramps to I-66.

Unfortunately, the most I can offer nowadays - I live in an apartment now - is a safe place to keep your bike for a few days and maybe a hot meal & a shower. Happy to help you out as much as possible if you're in a pinch, though, so don't hesitate to get in touch.
