Thanks Terry.... you know who I was talking about...
The bikes are currently stored inside the house,
He has come to the realization that his love of his bike is ended & he will never be able to ride again
& unfortunately seeing them upsets him greatly.

I've passed on the thoughts posted here to his wife who will come to a solution soon. 

Many thanks guys..

I live in Southwest Florida, USA and we have a hot and humid environment to deal with.

I store my stuff with a good coat of cosmoline wrapped in plastic cling wrap (like for sandwiches).

If he plans to use a storage container he could keep the inside dry with a dedumidifier that was set on a timer to run a few minutes a day with an outside drain hose.

If the seals on the door are reasonably good that method should keep things nice and dry inside.

Worked at Triumph/Norton dealership back in the day.  Also had Bultacos for the racers and sold Yamahas to keep the lights on and the doors open.

Must be the best solution ,Wozza, hope your mate recovers enough to enjoy what time He's left with his family and may it be a long time,( that looks more harsh in words than I meant so I hope you know I mean in in the best way ).Think you've set more than a few of us to thinking about things regards BobH.
