Talking Another Bike in the Cave

http:// What do you have in the Garage? I have a Pair of "Dirty Boxers." 1994 ('93) R1100RS w/ 40,000mi & 1995 ('94) R1100GS w/ 105,000mi. They're about a year apart by Production dates.

ill prob. end up using MELAMINE MDF board since formica is more work and more expensive.... i would have to put down 1/8" plywood anyways so might as well finish it in one process instead of a couple...

You've got me thinking...

I sold my '94 RSL and replaced it with a '96 GS. But I miss my RSL for road trips...

Seems like this would be a great combo and RS's are very affordable now.

Nice Ranger, too. Best truck I ever had (and I still miss it).
Thanks,

97 2WD Ranger LB, bought new by my Uncle and was a hand-me-down to me in 2001. 116K miles, 3.0V6 AT with upgraded 4.10 gear and beefed up suspension. Mechanically excellent and Mobil1 since I've owned it.

Side note about garage space or lack of.
I recently bought a No-Mar tire changer on CL, actually swapped a revolver for it, and didn't want to leave it mounted to the floor of the garage.

So I have this wood floor 5'x10' trailer and made me some 1/2" T-nuts and will mount the changer in the trailer when I need it. When I'm done with it I can unbolt it and store it in a corner of the garage. Secured the T-nuts from the under side so they're permanent.
Most likely will get as much use as the trailer.

I used to do that, but, with a flatbed truck.

I bought a No-Mar hitch mount and haven't looked back. It's so easy to just back the truck up to the door and the slide the changer into the receiver. Furthermore, it allows me to go to a customer's location to do their tires.

Updated and cleaned up a bit. Feels like a lot more space now.

Messing with a few new cameras for some different views of the Man Cave.

Inside.




Outside. Das Autos. All 3 are 4L turbos which a great motors for mountain driving. The bike has the whole 3rd stall to itself 9 months of the year except when my kid is home from college for the summer.
