i need a spot for my bike...where is the love clsb?

so i live in schaumburg and the spot where i have been keeping my bike (a keyd garage w/ parking) is soon going to be unavailable. i though i had a few more options but they fell through as well. so with that said, does anyone have any ideas or even, covered/secured spaces that theyd be willing to rent to me? and, if you tell me 60 bucks a month, i am going to tell you to f'in pound it.

ive looked around too and some of these storage places, for a drive up unit/motorcycles/ground level access, want 65+...and thats too much. and i dont want to leave my bike, locked and covered, in my lot.

so, who has some ideas? id be looking to drop the car off and take the bike for a few days and vice versa. i have options in chi but i dont want to have to hike it to foster and cicero every time i want to pick the rocket up.

so whose got some options for me?

$60 / month seems like a good deal for motorcycle storage, especially if it is a garage.

Agreed. Going rate for 1-space in a 2-car garage around the city is usually $80-100. Not sure how much better than $60 you'll find.

you can store it at my house for free.

*please note that you must leave the keys, sign a binding waiver of liability and understand that i will ride it when ever you are not riding it, so please be sure to return it with a full tank of gas when ever you are done with it*

Oh, and I am not giving you a key to my garage, so somebody will have to be home to let you in, and if we appear home and nobody answers the door, its not because I had plans to ride your bike later.

This was going to be my suggestion. I know a few people how park their bikes in the kitchen, living, or dining room.

I'd offer you to keep it at my place, but the garage is literally full. I parked one bike inside the house over the winter...

You're gonna have a hard time finding a closed spot for less than $60 a month, especially since you're not just storing it, but will be using it quite often as well.

Like someone said above, $80-100 is normal for a 1 car garage spot, I'd be happy if I found one for $60.
