im just curious on how you guys store your bikes, my bike gets left outside because the fuel really stinks up the house and the garage
i tried to put a tarp over it but the winter weather just blows it over.
so how do you guys store your bikes?
(pics would be cool too!)

Here in MN best way is to put a little additive like sea foam, run them dry ( out of gas ). We have snowblower, lawn tractors, mowers, keep them under covers, as any rain will seep into bearings, do this and shouldn't stink so bad, what we do anyway.............Curt

curtisfox is right. i assume you are not going to use it. seafoam ($5) it before storage, tarp ($1) or cover, and seafoam it on first tank of gas in the spring.

I use sea foam all the time as tractors set for a while and is good insurance against gum up, also takes any moisture and passes it through..........Curt

Stored in my house inside a closet with blue shop towel under it JUST IN CASE. i keep enough fuel in it to take it outside and start it up once a month to keep everything flowing.

LOL used a old 40's car V shaped hood behind a car back in the 50's, fun when you can get out on the ice. Even a pair of regular skies, long rope, out on the ice.............Curt

Grow a pair and man up. It's bike weather unless the wind is horrible.

Amazon. $15 and it's locked up.
I'm using this same cover. I really like how it fits, and the buckle underneath. The wind doesn't blow it off.
I'm kinda in between living situations right now. I don't have a garage or shop anymore at the moment, so the bike is outside, but not fully in the elements. I've only had the cover for a few weeks though. It is such light material, I don't expect it to last more than a year the way I'm using it now.
We'll see.

Edit 12/4/2018 I just bought another for my new Felt Cruiser, $9.99 shipped from ebay 210 nylon.
