Where do you keep your bike in the winter?

I recently moved house. My old place had a heated attached garage, so the bike was always kept nice and warm. My new place has a detached garage which is not insulated. So last night I did what any sensible RC51 owner would do, and brought it in the house. Now it has pride and place in my living room. This is the one upside to going through a divorce. Woo hoo!

Where do you keep your bike through the winter?

I keep my bike between my legs during the winter as I live in Phoenix AZ and this is good riding weather for the RC..........one of the reasons I moved here...it hardly ever rains and the tires get nice and sticky in the summer.

Cheers...........

I built a room in my house specifically for motorcycles. Black and white tile floor pot lamps enough outlets for ten tenders to be plugged in. Comfortably parks 6-8 bikes.

rode her right into the basement last week. Pipes sounded pretty freaking loud in a basement! Now i will be able to do all that maintenance stuff i wanted to get done this summer...and stay warm doing it. Getting her out next year is going to be a 65-point turn at least and a good hour though....I'll deal with it when spring gets here!
