Let's just say I lose things often in the garage and I wouldn't post a picture of it.

One day I hope it looks like yours but that but the kids ruin all attempts at organization.

I finally had to get my wife her own little tool box so I could find mine when I went to the work bench peg board! Organized isn't her middle initial.

This is the detached garage (called a "pole barn" around here, and also known generically as "post-frame construction"). This was the site of 2 Tech Sessions last year. The bike stays here, along with the tractor, mowers, yard implements, work bench, and all the crap that we keep stuffing into it. Nothing fancy inside like that first garage photo, but lots of concrete inside and out, electrical outlets, lights, a fridge and a phone.

The attached garage has been gutted and is being turned into an apartment for my father-in-law. No floor in there, presently. The drywall and concrete have been removed, in preparation for a rebuild.

Well, no pics of mine after seeing these!

I consider it a success if I can keep the basketballs, soccer balls, bats, shoes, bikes, mops, rakes, mulch, etc... on the other side where it belongs!

I may do like Les Nessman used to do and put tape on the floor for the imaginery wall.

Unfortunately, mine looks a lot like my back yard!.... I have a tall 12'x 16' building to stroe tools and other fun stuff, but the door is about 2' off the ground and it's full of bicycles and model car stuff (other big hobby), so the LT can't go in there. I'm hoping to eventually come off the roofline with half a car port to put the bike under.

Garages are nice. Maybe someday....another house with basement and garage.

You guys in the States, with garages bigger than my house, and gardens bigger than the county I live in - well here's mine - only enough room for one car and two bikes (the Norton is hiding under a cover in front of the LT) - my Duke & Bonny are parked up in a mates garage, and the Vauxhall lives outside.

If my wife see these photos of neat clean garages, I'm going to be in deep doo-doo. I always tell her, do you want "stuff" or have a clean garage? I have 2 motorcycles, a jetski, ATV, freezer and refrigerator, camping gear, huge safe, 8 new tires and a bunch of junk in mine. If I want a view, I'll go sit on my deck and look at the lake!

Current rides:
2003 BMW 1200 LT (bought in 2006)

Past rides:
97 Kawasaki ZX11(bought new in 1997, sadly sold in September 2014)
89 Honda Hurricane (sold)
88 Honda Hurricane (traded on an SUV)

Geeze, looking at those garage pics, then looking at mine was more humbling than being the only white guy in the YMCA shower after basketball practice...


In all fairness, you could EAT off my garage floor.

Very impressive organization. It does look like there's room for some more bikes on the top lift.

What a cool storage idea. Looks like those Manhattan surface lots you see stuck between buildings. They stack 'em two-high, also.

Well, you may notice that I only showed an outside pic of my garage. During the Tech Sessions it was relatively organized. Since then, the entire contents of the attached garage (except for the 2 cars) have been relocated to this building because of our rebuild project. Imagine taking all the junk from one garage and stuffing it into another already-full garage. I know I'm lucky to have the facility, but the remaining garage is essentially useless except as storage. Room for the LT, though.

Yep -- proper prior planning, ya know Although it looks like the next one will be SWMBO's -- she's eyeing the new R1200R. Somehow, her owning *3* of the 4 bikes in "my" garage just ain't right ...

That's a tasky looking garage! I've seen those lifts, that's just awesome. Just showed my wife where the GT will sit, the 749R, the Brutale, the 58 Duo Glide and the R1200S...

Then I woke up.

I put yellow duct tape on our garage floor and asked my wife to keep her auto on her side, but her auto just keeps creeping over the line. The trick is to over-reaact like Les.

I have a three stall garage and with two Ford Explorers and my LT it was OK. Now I keep adding tools and equipment it seems to be getting smaller.

Nope! Single income family.

Nice solution to the space problem but we don't do "short" cars here! Cheryl has an Aviator and I have a Ramcharger! but with an LT, KZ750, Honda VT500 trike and a delapidated GS850 in the garage along with the usal array of homeowner/kids stuff the chrager is stuck in the driveway!

Don't forget Mark has said he sleeps just a few feet from needles and lots of sleepytime meds! Don't want her going to bed "angry!"

I don't have a Porsche anymore. I used to have a Boxster S but I never drove it so I sold it. I drive a Jeep now.

Over the years I have had several Porsches. When I get too old to ride a motorcycle I'll probably get another one.

Besides - this is my "Motorcycle Garage". The cars are parked somewhere else.
