Man Cave or Hoarder's Hovel?

Time for another Blog Challenge via A View from Above.  This time the challenge is to post pictures of where my bikes live.  Well, I think I've posted something like this in the past but anyway...

My poor vehicles are forced to live in very close comfort in a single car garage.  Somehow I manage to wedge two big bikes in with my 'baru wagon.

Count 'em
Bench needs a tidy up (again)
Naturally the Connie takes pride of place in her very own parking spot.

Heed the sign!
To access a particular vehicle I enter from a side door and then squeeze past the Connie, then the DL, then I can open the roller door and start making my selection.

Suck it in.
And for those out there that are fans of the great Aussie film "The Castle", to get the Connie out I first take the car out, then move the V-Strom and then I can get her out.  I then have to put the DL back in place and put the car back in the shed before I disappear.  The DL can be extracted by carefully squeezing past the car...

Out in fresh air!
Definitely a bit of a hassle but always worth it - remember that great old saying "The worst days riding is better than the best day stuck at work/home."

  2. I think you have getting the vehicles in and out down to an art form, at least you can get them all in there. Good job.

  3. Such luxury for bikes and subaru. Fun challenge. A little juggling is well worth it for a roof over your head. PS the work bench looks fine to me.

    1. Excellent, so the bench can go a bit longer without a tidy up then?
