When we purchased our shed last year it was from Lowe's. They installed the 8 x 10 for 1500.00. You just have to make sure of the door opening orientation when buying an 8 x 10. They wanted to put the opening on the 10 foot side. I made sure that I had it put on the 8 foot side so that I could pull a bike in that's longer than 8 feet.

Even if you get a 10 x 10 you will find that there really isn't much room. You could fit 2 c50's side by side and that would be it. You would still be limited on your options for pulling the bike in. The doors would have at most a 5 foot opening. If you pulled your bike in straight then you wouldn't have a problem. If you pull your bike in at an angle and have to back out on an incline you may find problems.

Make sure you buy a wheel chock so that you can just pull your bike in straight.

You may be able to find a decent used trailer with a drop down rear door for less than the shed.

If you do go the trailer route. Make sure that you get a 12' long trailer if there is no v-nose. If it is a v-nose you can get away with a 10' long trailer.

Now I have an 8x10 and swear if I had a 10x10 with the doors on the 10 ft side, that would work for me. I opted to keep the smaller bike in the existing shed, and put the bigger bike in a cycle cover, next to the shed. Primarily because I didn't want to spend the money for a good bigger shed and then do the work.
