Can you park a bike with gas in public storage?

I get two bikes in there with a shitload of junk for 100 a month.

It's not one of those indoor places. It's a little mom and pop place. They're outside ground level, maybe 8" off the ground, wood floor made of sheet metal. Not heated, not electric, but it's cheap. I have two parked in there and the owner knows about it and has never said anything other than to compliment the bikes. There are a few people parking bikes in there.

When you said Tillary, I think you meant Boerum Place- I'm close to that, on the same block as Pacifico (a crappy hipster joint). It's the ugly* block!

Vax is great, esp. if you work on your bikes a lot, or have a lot of tools/gear/parts/junk (I do). I checked out Machina- the owner was a nice guy, but the place was too small. I considered a regular storage place, but I like the comforts of a garage- utility sink, bathroom, oil disposal bin, bike lifts, tons of tools, grinder, air compressor, and stuff I don't know how to use (but others can help with), like welders and such. Plus, there's a fridge, BBQ grill, stereo, alarm system, etc. I'd rather have my own garage, like when I lived in the 'burbs, but that's not an option at this phase of my life.

*But, it's constantly improving.

Ahhh Boerum Pl, right you are. Well I'll see you around man. I ride a black '02 Honda 919. I might pay the 1 day fee at Vax to use a lift for some work I have planned in the near future.

Maybe we can meet up for a ride soon. Have you been to Union Garage on Union and Columbia at all?

Sometimes this occurs in older vehicles or when you have used the spare tire recently. Luckily, you can get a payday loan and have a tow truck come out and get you. They will tow you to the nearest tire place, so you can get a brand new one.

Hey, where's the guy...

...with the payday loans? I was thinking about getting a flat, and I rarely ever carry a spare tire on my bike.

I haven't been To Union yet, but I've been to Moto Borgotaro which is next door (Union garage wasn't built when I was there).
If you go to Vax, ask Justin (owner) if I'm there (Ron), and I'll say hello.

Tonight I'm heading over to the Radegast Bier Halle in Williamsburg.

I'm sure you've all been there before, as have I, but figured I'd share the fun.

They have a band called the "High and Mighty Brass Band", free admission, and per their website:

$5 Half-liter daily special beers
Free bratwurst with every liter of daily special beers.

EDIT: Disclaimer - I have no idea if the band is any good
