Awesome. That's a lot of space to play with.

Are you losing two garage bays with that desk and wall between them?

If the XR1200 already went the way of the Dodo, I doubt Yamaha has intentions on bringing this bike to the US. :(

no just one space.. the one on the far right side... thats ok though cause thats where the washing machine/dryer and storage are.... that big table will be almost perfect for building motors etc. once i get some formica down on it...

I did not think formica would hold up to heavy duty usage.

I don't do heavy duty engine work on my workbench but the linoleum I put on the work top is holding holding up well.

I went with raw 3/4 inch plywood, which i oil periodically(usually with oil i spill by accident and spread out over the bench). Holds up nicely.

Ive always toyed with the idea of covering it with a sheet of stainless steel.

I used it for several years. It is amazingly durable unless you are doing major hammering on it.

Here are a few pics of my storage area/'garage'/home brewery/reloading room/gun room/office... in other words, my man castle. It's not as extravagant as some of your guys' setups, but it works for me for now. Normally I'm pretty anal about keeping my place clean, but with board exams coming up, I've let my office get a bit cluttered lately.









This is one of my favorites yet. Very nice dude. When were you in the 'Stan?
