All you guys and your road-access and garages.... Some of us live on traditional Wellington sections up wonky pathways and mossy steps.

All of the bikes live inside the downstairs garage, taking up an entire parking bay that would otherwise be used for the wife's car. No carpet, but there is a stereo and decent workshop setup to make it pleasant.

Some bikes live in the garage (with TV and stereo and one car, the other lives on the driveway.) and some live in the flat under our house (with carpet, central heating and sky), the others hang in the stairwell between the flat and house.

Sometimes bits sneak inside....at the moment I can see 2 wheels, some random handlebars and some tyres.....

Bikes live in either the single internal access garage ( with one of or 3 cars ) or in the room beside the garage which has some of my other toys, small stereo and other cave type items

I still miss the shed we had at our last rental that fitted 3 cars plus bikes, work bench massive couch etc

The bikes live in my man shed (almost a house its 80sqm with three rooms) with all my other toys. I'm still working on clearing out the storage room to be a dedicated bike park :) I don't remember collecting all that crap but i should get around to finding a new home for most of it.
At the mo they have custom made floor stands (screwed to the floor)to park in and share a nice warm carpeted room with couches, t.v/games set up, gym equipment and a rowing machine oh almost forgot the most important bit ,the beer fridge.
I have been trying to persuade she who should be obeyed that it is necessary to have a proper coffee machine out there so I can relax on the man shed porch after a hard ride with a freshly made cappuccino I even presented her with a cost benefit breakdown , it seems shes somewhat dubious about the savings to be made over the local coffee shop.
I cant put my bikes in the garage cause I don't have one , I deliberately brought a house with no garage, after nearly thirty years fixing cars the last thing I want to do is come home and have to bugger round with them,besides it gives me a great excuse not to do homers as well :sly:

Got a pass to assemble the new bike inside at the moment but other than that they are relegated to the garage

Once upon a time we had three motos in the house.
Mind you, we were renting at the time :paranoid: . Now that I an responsible for my own carpet and walls, all bikes live in the garage, mancave and sheds.

Once upon a time bedroom:

Where do you guys sleep, in the shed?
:p

I manage to sneak mine inside to true wheels or do fiddly stuff mid-winter. That's about the limit.

It's a three bedroom house so there's still a room for us.
We might have to move some of the bikes out the garage. We've just registered on https://www.warmshowers.org/ and we are getting a lot of request from people to stay.
We'll see if we can get all the bike into one room before taking the drastic action of moving them to the garage.

without clicking on that link, can i just say, it sounds SO dodgy...


I assume it's an airbnb / couchsurfer type set up?
