Do you park in the garage?

The cage that is... Do you park it in the garage?

I'm house sitting for a friend this week, and I'm definitely enjoying putting the truck in the garage, it's very nice, even though there's only about 5" of room left on either end

Re: Do you park in the garage?

Nope. We only have a 1 car garage and it's used for the bikes + storage.

Re: Do you park in the garage?

Only for the last year.....it's awesome, especially in the winter. Up until that point the garage only held the wife's car, the bikes, and my shop....

Re: Do you park in the garage?

yep, both cars and both bikes.

i have noticed alot of people use their garages for storage. My question is why? if there is that much stuff in your house, then you probably need to get rid of some of it.

Re: Do you park in the garage?

No, because all the bikes (and other bike stuff, and lawnmowers) are in the garage, leaving no room for trucks or cars. Hopefully the garage addition will get going first thing this Spring. Then the trucks can go back in the garage. I used to put the truck in the garage and it was really nice not having to scrape it in the Winter.

Re: Do you park in the garage?

Unfortunately no, too late on my home equity to build the garage. It would be soooo nice. This spring I will finally have one!!! Bike is in basement.

Yep. First time since I got my Dodge 2 yrs ago that I can finally put it in a garage.

Re: Do you park in the garage?

My new truck won't fit in my garage so we are having a house built that will accomodate. Used to keep both cars and both bikes in. The new house is a side entry 3 car that we are having the door put in the front of the house so it will be a 2 car, 27 feet deep. The truck and car will fit with the Doo, and bikes in the back of the garage. They can't build it fast enough. The morning dew is making my truck dirty.

I really enjoy it after an ice, snow, hail, etc. I used to ram my bike and cage into a 1 car, but I have 2 garages now

Re: Do you park in the garage?

I have a small garage. I can barely fit my car and bike in it. Only problem is that I have to take the car out everytime I want to take out the bike, which really sucks. But I like it because I know they're both safe inside.

Bikes and women - both have nice curves.

Re: Do you park in the garage?

Currently I park my 2 cars, and 2 bikes in the garage. I have a drive through garage so I can take the bike out the back and down the side ally. The wife now wants to get rid of the drive through garage and put another room there. I agreed if I could add a 3rd garage in the front for my trailer and rides. More to come as the contractor is coming today for an estimate and ideas.

Re: Do you park in the garage?

I could probably make enough room for the truck now, but currently my 2 car garage just houses two bikes, mowers, etc. Need the space to tear the bike apart.

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?
