Garage/ Storage/ Shed

Hi all. I got a small yard and my bike is currently under a cover and a tarp. Its not what I want to do but it serves its purpose for now. I seen enclosures for just a bike to big 10x10's. Any advice or direction for storage? Again its a small yard, no garage, and the wife wont let me park it in the kitchen!!!

I have an 8x10 shed. It is really too small to accomodate a bike and other things. I had to keep the Boulvard on an angle. I was looking for 10x10 before I settled on a pop up tent for one bike. The Bonneville fits perfectly, straigh in to the existing 8X10 shed, the Boulevard in the pop up tent. My .02

shed is the most sensible solution especially since you live in an area that does experience the winter elements.If you go that route and could afford the extras consider a power source and some extra footage that could comfortably let you work on your bike and store some of the bikes needs...oil...filters...cleaning supllies, bike lift..etc. Good luck

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!

I have an 8 x 10 shed and there was no room with the bike in it so I went out and purchased a 6 x 12 cargo trailer from Lowes. It was 3k but well worth it. Now the bike has a place of its own and I have storage for helmets and other things.

Thanks everyone! I will check out the different options. I am leaning toward a 10x10... just space is an option. But having power and HEAT would be a nice plus. Thank you!
