    Snapped a pic of bikes on my way to work tonight. They're tucked away for the winter.
    My big Burgman isn't showing in the pic. It's just to my left out of the frame.
    There's another Honda PCX behind my wife's RS on the left.
    The Toro snowblower is right behind the RS on the right.
    It's going to be a looooong winter.

    I don't think I could stand to have a stable like this and go more than a day without at least running to the coffee shop.

    Did you put a saddle on it?

    How in the heck do you find enough time in the year to ride that many bikes, with almost half the year spent in storage??? ;)

    My final mileage tally for the season was just under 19K for all things 2 wheeled. I know that's what Darrell does in a month LOL, but I'm not retired yet.

    That snowblower will move closer to the overhead door in the next couple of weeks. I need to get mine fired up this week but first need to finish getting the last bike serviced and doing a few hours of detailing so all are ready for spring.

    I like the idea of having the motorcycle coat/gear rack in the garage. My coats/gear are in three different locations through out the house and the garage.

    My RS should arrive mid February and my garage gets very cold that time of year. I have a 32" door straight into a second unused family room which is heated. I'd like to roll him into there but not sure of width required to work the bike through the door. Any ideas what door width is needed to wind it through? Besides, in there I could sit on it and watch TV while it snows, LOL.

    Our bikes are tucked away for the winter and the snow blower was moved from the lower garage to the main garage.

    Which one works better?
    When I looked at the Barkbusters this spring in Arkansas they looked like a good fit.

    Lee,
    I have a set of the Barkbusters that I have not installed. I have not decided if I want to have them on the bike or not for a couple of reasons. I will probably make up my mind sometime after the first of the year. Too much going on right now to deal with deciding (moving to a new house, medical problems, holidays). If you are interested in them, I will let you know when I decide.

    The Barkbusters work very well on Dawn's. The used bike I bought came with GS handguards installed. They both block wind/bugs. If I didn't have to buy a bunch of extra parts, I'd put the Barkbusters on mine. Previous owner used a bunch of extra hardware from GS and I don't have the original stuff.

    Always the professional:
    • Raised floor.
    • Insulation.
    • Battery tender.
    • A radio on the floor to keep the mood perfect.
    • And the all important bedroom wall poster of a glamour model for inspiration.
    Amazing my bike hasn't left me to move in with you.

    Debbie has mentioned several times I should drywall the bike parking area.
    I find it easier to just slide the door closed.
    Out of site out of mind :)

    Minnesota snow blowers are turbo charged and come with a plug for heated gear :)
