Just curious to see for those who do not have a garage for their bike how they park it outside. Do you have a cover for the bike? If so, which one do you have?

I have two cars and only one carport, which my wife uses for her car. I am hoping that the bike will fit behind the wife's car, but I won't know until the bike gets delivered this Thursday. I want to have a plan in case the bike does not fit in there. We're expecting rain later this week for a few days straight.

Thank you in advance!

That makes me feel better that you can fit your bike in front of the Murano - gives me hope that mine will fit...unless you have a really deep carport :D.

I've been there once to check out some helmets, but it was right around closing time, so didn't get much of chance to browse at all. The helmet guy, Todd, is really helpful. I need to make another trip out there to check out all their stuff.

I love my girlfriend. She is hot, considerate, loyal, kind, sweet, hot, caring, nurturing, fun, dedicated, fit, hot, loving, understanding, patient, flexible, affectionnate......need I keep going?

Oh....and she has two garages at her house. One of them is empty. She told me I can store all of my motorcycles in it whenever I want. Even work on them in there - in my "man cave" - to my heart's content at any time.

Did I mention I love my girlfriend? :)

Wow, I bet there is a magazine rack for moto-porn, a fridge for cold "beverages", and a direct line to the local pizza joint in that "man cave".

Gotta find me one for myself.:D

i don't have a garage and keep my bike outside all the time. i only cover it when there is possibility of rain or when it's humid enough that there will be condensation overnight. I use a black nelson rigg cover.

Actually - I feel strange saying this - but she would provide me with those items (at least the fridge full of cold beer - which in essence is the most vital anyway). From the responses here - maybe I'm more spoiled than I realize.

The funny thing is - she really is hot looking. All my friends keep saying so. I'm just not used to dating someone so hot - who also embodies all the other virtues I've described. Now that I'm older - I realize just how hot that truly is!

Parked at work I don't have a garage. So I use a top only 'bike condom' most days to keep off the sun, light rain, and bird $hit. If heavy weather is coming I use the full Honda bike cover which goes all the way to the ground.

No garage here but I went and bought a small economy shed for the winter hibernation. It is nothing fancy but has plenty of room for the bike.

no garage, On my other bikes I only used durashield cover. they work well. on the cbr250r, the mirrors and the tail light form a pool area, so I may have to put a cardboard tube or something in there to form a ridge, so the water does not pool.

I've been looking at this if I have to store the bike during winter. I think i will continue riding through winter though.

I've seen this before, but what about the extreme cold won't it affect the bike fluids tires, etc?
I don't have a garage or caport either so come december I will have to get a storage unit for at least three months.
