Oh boy did Jr get in trouble today!

His new tires arrived, and the shop was cold so he brought the bike into the mud room and was changing the tires when momma came home!
Had the front done and the rear off, told her he might as well finish cause he couldn't move the bike with out the rear wheel on, smart 16 year old!
Now I am in trouble for being a BAD influence. Just because I bring in JUST the wheel and not the whole dang bike! But my excuse is I need to warm them up in front of the stove so it goes faster if it is warm, and now that I am in it will only take a few minutes to do the rest. Heck it is the MUD room!

I need more examples, so I can show her it is OK. The mud room is a bunch warmer than the shop ever is! I need to adjust the valves this weekend on the DR and some dewinterizing on the WR!

I had no garage. I am not about to work on my bike in cold, damp, freezing temperatures. So I rode it into the kitchen. Worked on it in comfort, with an adult beverage, nice music, a few snacks. Much better.

I stored my 92 cbr 600f2 in my 3rd floor apartment every winter in Canada when in school as a kid.

wrestling it into the elevator (it was too big so we had to stand it on its back wheel) was always an adventure


the only real problem was the "mid winter fire sprinkler inspection" - you'd be amazed how with some creativity, cardboard, duct tape, and lots of blankets how you can get a motorcycle to look like a book shelf.

Tami has been known to bring her bike inside, too.
