I asked for it when I convinced her to learn to ride when she turned 50. Just never dreamed she would turn into a bike hoarder ... Oh now she's shopping around for a track bike - where did I go wrong ?
Absolutely nothing wrong with a woman like that!!

Thats the way my gal and I are too.

I have to buy everything in twos:

Two snowmobiles

Two dirtbikes

Two quads

Two Waverunners

Expensive? Yeah, maybe...but I wouldnt have it any other way.

Its great to have a riding partner any time your ready to go!

Tuff Shed

So since I don't have a garage to put my bike, does my Tuff Shed count? This is an act of desperation to get my bike off the back porch. The porch is covered, but even with my bike cover on, condensation from rain, builds up inside it.

I tried to roll in front wheel first, but there isn't enough room to roll back on the center stand and close the door. I may resort to just using the kickstand with shim under it so the bike doesn't lean too much.

The next step is to get pavers outside the shed, since I have to roll across grass/dirt, then up a series of pavers and rolling a 474 lb. bike BACKWARDS uphill is a pisser.







And a few inches wheel clearance.

Thanks....this is actually the 2nd garage. First one burned and so did everything in it. I have a pic somewhere on this forum.

Many thanks. It was actually an afterthought and there isn't much head room. I access it with a set of rolling stairs like u see in big box stores. Great for storage.

The shed of junk. Old pix - Vmax and 640e went in 9 days on CL and on the 10 I added a 12 exc 500.

But I collect (take) bike event posters. Let me know if ya have any you want to swap.

Oh my god...I'd be in tears. All those toys gone to waste...

I watched the video, but I cant tell what the hell happened exactly? Gas siphoning gone bad?

How did it rampage through everything so extensively? I mean, I realize toys=gasoline, but wow...

Im sorry man.

He was stealing gas from that black tank. Spark ignited somehow. He paniced and split. It just spread to the interior via heat.

I was pretty pissed. All he got charged with was criminal trespass and petit larceny. Probation was the penalty.

I did ok. Cant say enough about how well nationwide treated me. I lost about 65k in depreciation and uninsured items....but they covered other things I didn't imagine they would. So in the end it all worked out. Plus I got a better building.
