OK - back to Man Caves. The Three Abreast view of the motorcycles only side of the Man Cave.



As you can see, cardboard works as a floor cover surface too.

Nice space and collection of bikes!

I keep any big pieces of cardboard exactly for that purpose.

KLR?
What because it's next to the Ninja? Or you just calling my Tiger a KLR?

Easy, Killer. It was a feeble attempt at humor. (Please see inserted at bottom of post.) We just got through a discussion on high end/long dollar garage floors and a piece of cardboard is posted along with...

BTW, I 'get' using the cardboard. I've even got one with a baker's tray under it. Again, it was an attempt at humor. Got no issues with yours or any bikes.

In the early steps of fixing up my garage. The power company in Georgia, Georgia Power is offering $50 for old refrigerators. My garage frig was from 1985 so I had them pick it up. The contract the work to another company. The contractors say it is a profitable business. They suck out the Freon from the old frigs and sell it, recycle all the copper and other metals. They said the insulation is worth money too.

They made it sound like the power company was making more money giving $50 for the frig than the savings of having power hungry appliances removed.

Back to Castle pictures and stories.

There must be something to it. I hauled a 53' semi-trailer of fridge insulation, from MN to Indy's powerplant, where they burn it for electricity. Seems like a lot of transportation costs for powerplant fuel. Maybe, the other recyclable value makes up for that.

What some may not get is that some of the older refrigerators although they may use more energy, they don't break in five or six years and go directly into the dump. My current refrigerator is at least twenty years old and although I hate the top freezer (it was my Mom's) it is still humming along.

More than I can say of my six year old big $$ Maytag front loader washing machine that just cost me $250.00 for a control board that I replaced.

Gotcha, just wasn't following the KLR reference and the emoticon looked like fun to use.
I still have 3 large pieces of cardboard from when I moved into this house that were used as box spring and mattress boxes. Turning out to be about a 5 year supply!

Best accessories in your Man Castle?

Here are a couple of mine. That air hose reel is the best thing ever! The winch/lift ain't a bad thing to have hanging around too.

Aircraft hangar? RV storage? Indoor hockey rink?

My budget is less than 1/10 of that.

Was wondering about the brand & size of that air hose reel. I've been looking at some and would like to get a good one with will hold a long reach of hose.
