Hi all. when I talk to most bikers (anything 2 wheels with a motor) they generally say "Man cave!" (nothing sexist intended) Well just to be different I have a "Man tent!"

What say the rest of you ?
Ps the circle used to be a turntable for the Burgman (worked great) but the Swings stand is further back so won't work, the slabs are a patio
and the tent is for welding/fabricating.
Access is via a removable draw bridge.



Be safe be seen!

A turntable? Jeez Johny, and here I thought that circle was the off-center of the universe. Rolling Eyes

Good use of tent technology there, although you should have a carpet in there too to keep their little wheels warm. Bikes have feeling too you know.

Mine hides in the far corner of the garage. I can just manage to reverse the car into the garage with about 2 inches between the car and the bike and also 2 inches between the car and the garage side wall!

It's a PITA and scratching the bike (and car) is a real possibility, but I like my car to be garaged too. As most of us Europeans know, standard garages are tiny. My neighbour has an Audi TT and the car is too wide for the garage entrance. Even if it went in, she wouldn't be able to exit the car!

I live in a former miners house in 'Billy Elliot' country so have a proper back yard with whitewashed walls that leads into a lane running at the back of all the houses.
I had the single wooden gate replaced by a wider roller-shutter door in order to get my Silverwing in and now the Forza and NIU.
Both bikes have decent covers although I park the electric scooter under an awning as I use it nearly every day.

I have so much crap in my garage that my triked SWing just fits. My son is going to MMI school in Phoenix, AZ and I have a couple of his rolling tool boxes and other stuff in the garage. Not to mention the boxes he has in the room he lived in when he lived here.
For those that don't know, MMI is the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute and they've been around for years. I remember seeing their ads in magazines when I was a youngster. Now I'm and Oldster!!

My precious baby gets special treatment. She is very easy to put on center stand. Platform is easily adaptable to any bike with center stand. I used to lift a Honda ST1300 before getting off the bike.
