What an ideal place to store your bikes. Secure and would be very temperate I would imagine. Wouldnt it be nice to be able to have your bikes on display and to be able to walk amongst them instead of (like me) having them all jammed in together with covers over them all.

Wouldn't it be nice to have space, (and money and indulgent wife) to own more than one m'bike.

Space wise I'm maxed out at 12 bikes and not all of those are easy to get to. And yes, I do consider myself as fortunate.

Regrets, I have a lot, but I can sit in my garage of an evening with a scotch and a pipe on the go and look around and figure that the 17 yr old me would reckon I'd done pretty good.

You can only ride one at a time GB!

The A10 would always be first choice anyway, so no point me having other bikes.

I've only got room for two bikes.

My wife won't let me keep any in the conservatory, so two it is.

flashblack give her the sack, my girlyfriend of 20 years demands I bring the A7 in from the garage and asked me if the yonda four was coming in so I could work on it in the warm. I had to tell her yes if we took the door and frame out to get it in *bright idea*
