Okay, Ill play this game. Bikes are parked on other side of garage



That's just not right.  :chugbeer:


Yeah, it's way too clean and neat (or "ship shape" if you prefer  ;) ) but it's got a floor standing drill press, a welder, and a beer koozie so it's darn good in my book except for the neatness factor.

Clutch time on the R1



I need to get a lift...that just looks so handy to have. (said the ole man that doesn't fold, or squat, or crouch very well anymore.)


 


O.C., is your C14 the only 4 cycle bike in that photo?

Yes it is....I have a bit of an addiction towards strokers.

There have been others apart from those shown in the photo's    ;) 


EDIT:...actually no  bottom left is a N.O.S  KZ400 that I bought as an investment, it had 1 mile on the clock  :o

Neatness is an absolute must!!! Over the years, I watched my dad scrounge around looking for stuff in his garage, and couldnt find anything. I like knowing where everything is at.

It's G-A-R-A-G-E.  A free standing or attached structure found with most houses in the U.S. Originally designed for temporary storage and protection of the family automobile. It replaced the barn/stable about the same time that automobiles replaced the horse as a personal transportation system. It is often the largest room/open space under the roof line in the typical U.S. free standing home. Currently it seems to have evolved (for many but not all) into a local storage area where families keep various items often with a total value of a few hundred dollars while their vehicles that may be worth many tens of thousands of dollars remain outside to weather the elements. Some few have made theirs do multiple duty as a vehicle storage area and home maintenance center, containing lawn grooming equipment, snow re-positioning tools, rudimentary carpentry tooling, Corn Hole gaming materials as well as automobiles. A small percentage have been converted into so called "man caves" where the purpose seems to be the consuming of alcoholic grain based beverages while watching various sporting activities on television. This activity is usually accompanied by false-macho-bravado-speak wherein they try to convince themselves that this is a desirable outcome to hide the fact that their significant other has emasculated them by making them stay in the garage.

However, this thread was started in hopes of exchanging ideas about those that have primarily used the garage space for the storage of motorcycles and the tools and implements used in the maintenance and farkling of same. This latter being the only completely sane re-purposing of the space for right thinking individuals of either sex.

Apparently Garage is also this: http://garagemag.com/  ...but it appears to be mostly nonsense so I wouldn't give it much thought.

The same thing happens with the employees at my business....'The workload expands to fill the allotted time'.

Since ZG doesn't come around here anymore (Last Active: December 13, 2015, 05:05:15 pm), I gleaned a shot of his garage from some other forum.

Here is my bike storage/workshop.  It's actually above my garage, which is nice.  Doesn't everyone have a pool table in their shop?  It's actually a loaner from my wife's nephew who doesn't have room to set it up and use it.

I don't know why the attachments are upside down.  They are fine on my computer.  Anyone know how to fix it?
