So far I have only liked one house, but most all of them we have seen have garages about a few feet too short. I would have to air down tires just to drive into them. Forget about jacking anything up once in them. What happened here in the seventies that garages got so short? :lol
i've been looking into it for a while with our new house. There are some very cheap vendors that build garages complete with concrete and all work on KSL, about $10-12G for a decent 2 car garage building it seems...

I used A-Shed about 5 years ago. 24X24 level lot. I did have them vinyl side it. I think it was 18K.
They did the cement and permits. That did not include any drywall work.

If anyone can offer up use of a tire changer, or some expertise, I pay in wobbly pops or good company.

My wife wants to have her front tire on the SV changed out, and I don't know if I can just spoon it off, or if I really have to pay a shop to do it. We have the tire already, it's a half used unit from my Triumph. Well, someone else has the Triumph now, but I still have the tire. They have a tire, oh you know what I mean.

I just looked up the process for those fancy pants street bike wheels. I don't think my ol dirt bike tire spoons are going to work.
Maybe it's worth just paying someone, and I should stop being so darn cheap.

It isn't that bad. I did my V-Strom last fall. Two things you have to be careful of. First, trying not to scratch the paint on your street wheels. Second they need to be balanced. I bought a set of rim protectors that worked quite well for $5-10. (They are reusable). I opted for dyna beads instead of wheel weights. I have about 1500 miles on them and they ride real smooth. I'd be happy to help you if you still want to do it yourself. Send me a pm and we can set something up.

Well, keep looking. You might find Susan Powell instead.

Let the fantasy go. You would never have ended up with one of the girls.
You may have had a shot at Charlie Sheen.

Charlie Sheen was in that movie? I remember Patrick Swayze but that is about it.

Something is wrong with that.
