dude this is a great idea. i asked about something like this just over a year ago but never followed up.

i'm in nyc (riverdale) and i can offer a couch or thermarest. the place is a studio so don't expect a ton of privacy. but one or two people could crash with no problem. plenty of safe on the street parking. safe residential neighborhood just north of manhattan. public transportation to anywhere.
bmw makes motorcycles now?

I'm In Atlanta right where 75/85/20 all meet, pretty much in the middle of the city. No tent space but I have a spare bedroom, shower, and a garage with limited tools if needed.

Bountiful, Utah.

Tools air and hand, garage space usually for bike, and varying degrees of remodeling will dictate type of room available. Wifey likes to make me tear things out.

Fairly close (five minute ride, but you can't hear it hardly) to freeway interchange, just a few minutes north of Salt Lake City in Bountiful.

Tent space, couch space, hammock space, blow up mattresses, floor, shower, laundry, movies, can't move in, but up to four days is ok. :)

We love bacon. Mmmmm...

Have a dog and a cat, so try not to have allergies. You can bring your dog, we've had folks visit us with their dog (dogs)!

Have knowledge of area roads, restaurants, etc.

You can email us at cleenjeep at, mramsey at, or just PM here. Advance notice best, but not absolutely required. Last minute drop ins at 8oh1 too hundred too five Juan three.

If you need a pickup and are broke down nearby, we can probably help, we've got a tall van and a ramp.

I'm in too...

About 10 miles NW of Terre Haute, Indiana. I've got space for several tents either in the woods or at the edge of a field (we have 16 acres, my folks next door have 70, most of it's wooded). Liquor store is roughly 8 miles distant. I have a small collection of cheap tools and a cheap motorcycle lift in a very cluttered and crowded garage. A little advance notice via email is a good thing, and I don't always check it on the weekends...

Oh yeah, wireless Internets, too..

The road to Hell is paved...

With a little notice....

I'm in Port Townsend, WA. I have basic tools and access to services in-depth, including dead bike recovery. (not necessarily resuscitation) I have a fenced yard and carport. We have an independent Honda dealership in town with a BMW mechanic and enthusiasts, vintage freaks, a KLR clique and the Olympic Peninsula for a backyard.

In the beautiful Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, a hop skip and a jump from Wolfville. Have room for some tents or if your slightly sensitive to bumpy ground floors in the house or even an extra bed. You can lay in your tent and hear the waves of "The Bay of Fundy" crashing on the shore.
If you want to stay here your problem will be you will have to listen to me drone on about my trip to Ushuaia and watch endless hours of out of focus, badly structured pictures but your always welcome.

Conway, AR

You can pitch a tent in the yard, but you might have a goat trying to sleep with you.

I also have a spare bed plus inflatable one.

Warning 2 dogs, 1 parrot, 1 teenager.

I'm 50 miles west of Chicago in St Charles, Il. I am south of Interstate 90 and east of Interstate 39. I have space for camping, a garage with lift and tools for repair, and a trailer to help haul you if you need it ( sometimes ). Well versed on the whole northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin area. Have a Honda dealer 5 miles away and a BMW dealer about 25 miles away.
