Help your fellow members out with winter storage here

I am thinking it might be a good idea to put together a list of people who have extra garage space they would like to loan out or rent out. I have no problem with people charging a little rent for this since it is taking up some of your personal space in your garage. Thats only natural. ut remeber it is your fellow riders so lets give them a break. Some people arent lucky enought to have large garages like some of us.


I persoanlly have one space in my garage that I would let be ocupied for $50 a month. if someone needs it. Now price directly reflects the fact that I will no no extra spce in my garage to do anything in there. Someone who has a third car space sitting empty might charge a little less.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Feel free to post if you got space either for rent or for free.

I've got some space I'm willing to rent out too. It will be more than Tony's Hella deal since a 5x10 storage garage is almost $100/ month. It will be quite a discount to that though. You must have your own insurance, I'm sure I could squeeze two maybe three bikes in. PM me if interested.

Does the going rate include a ride back into the city? ... you guys might want to list where these garages are located... I'd rather keep my bike closer to home than 1.5 hours away in Wisconsin

But my garage is in Romeoville. If you need a ride and I'm available to do it I might be nice enough to do that.

I've got room in my garage for $1 less than Tony and Brian....


Just kidding....I already have 3 bikes in a one car garage...no room.

I wish Dave (DJS) could see this thread as his R6 has been sitting in my garage RENT FREE for the last year.....never ridden either except for trackdays. That thing needs to go....

For those in Chicago:

I have an unattached two car garage behind my place. I have my car, and bike in there (along with Moto178's Gixxer...which I really haven't learned how to hot wire and ride wheelies on...honest ) There's room for another one in there however, and for a small fee (higher than Tony and Crazy of course as real estate in the city is harder to come by, and always more expensive ) I'd be happy to help out.

PM me if you're interested and I'll work out the details.

Right on.

LOL How could I charge more than $50 a month when your charging $50 a month down the street from me. Sounds like we should have started a Cartel before this was posted

Yeah but its supply and demand. The people who jump on this right away will get it cheap. But the people who wait will end up paying more. Like I said I only have one spot.

If I somehow managed to sell the Maxim, I'll have one spot open in front of my car. Need it's own stands and insurance. Not heated.

You can help this cause by finding a buyer for that Yamaha Maxim, 1983 with 15,500 miles on it.

If the Maxim doesn't sell than this is voided.

I can take 4-6 bikes if I park my car outside or 1 more if I leave the car inside. Could take 2 if I get creative.

Covered and secure garage, but not heated. It's usually 10 degreses warmer than the outside.

The bad thing is that I'm 1 hour away from most people.

a good friend of mine, mike (he came up to strats one nite), picked the bike up from BusaFreak. it ran for 2 days after he bought it. there's something wrong with the electrical system. its probably a bad wire somewhere or something. we changed the battery and the starter solonoid. at the battery, we have 12 volts. at the starter solonoid we read 11 volts. at the fuses, we read anywhere between 9 and 11 volts. so its basically been sitting there in my garage, and i've been trying to get him to take it to different people and places to get it fixed, but he hadn't done it. so now i told him to come pick it up...so now its sitting in a garage in addison. he doesn't really know what he wants to do with it. he was thinking of maybe trying to fix it himself, or rewire the whole thing, selling it as it is, parting it out, or maybe take it in somewhere.

Actually price gougers are those who withold supply on a certain item until demand becomes extreme (i.e. bottled water when a hurricane is coming) and then jacks the price up beyond all belief... because he or she knows people will pay any price for that commodity .

Terminator is simply undercutting the 'competition' by offering his goods (space to store a bike) at a 'lower' 'price' (free). He doesn't need to turn a profit to 'pay' for the 'space' he already owns, and has instead decided help on an oil change would be better compensation. All about how you look at it.

I think i can handle an oil change hehe

From where you met Ken, my house is about 10 minutes from there. I dont think the Jackhammers are a Double A club. I think the are in an Independent league just like the St. Paul Saints.

BTW Brian, I may take you upon the offer. I have never changed the oil on the R1, and I kinda like to see how its done before I go and do it myself. And yes, The oil has been changed before by the dealer. What does it take 4QT's? Hmmm wonder if Tony has Yamalube for sale.

Life is too short to ride anything but an R1

It usually takes a little over 3 qts. Tony sells the Amsoil and that stuff works great. you will immediately notice the difference in the smootheness of the motor and especially shifting. I've already changed mine a couple of times this year, and it's real easy.
