    Bought this property in May of 2012. My first house and a garage that I can finally call my own (it's half the Fiance's though, but that's okay because she is as much of an enthusiast as I am).

    Alice, the white one, is her's. No longer have the F800S, unfortunately.

    The house, because it's okay for the whole thing to be a man castle? It's the biggest thing I've ever lived in!

    No more X5 either, went domestic and got an '05 Yukon XL.



    Tons of plans for the garage, but who doesn't have those?

    Nice diggs. About $740k in Cali I presume, maybe more in 10k Oaks! :dunno Work for Amgen by chance? Looks like my buddy's place in Moraga, CA.

    Nice wheels too. And the garage, I don't think can ever be too big! Have fun customizing it.

    That's very cool! Great use of a modest space! I like it!

    It is with extreme joy I can report the house was quite a bit less... which is a good thing because we absolutely SCORED on this house last year. We've been doing comps on it and it has appreciated immensely just within a year.

    It would be difficult trying to get something for 700k with the same dimensions/amenities as our house. Don't forget the interest rates!


    When our roommate moves out we have big plans for the garage- I AM EXCITE.


    What a classy setup. Well done.

    Nice! Who makes the bike lift? It looks very compact and also looks like it has very good lift height to it.

    That sir, is very good use of space.

    Where is the rest of that Triumph, frame, engine etc...? The tank looks to be the paint scheme of a '70 Bonneville...? :lurk

    I just got a Goodyear hose reel. A shop I used to work at had one it it worked great doe daily use, I figure it should last just about forever for my limited use. You can find them on ebay for a decent price. The hose is great and remains flexible in cold temperatures.

    Beautiful place. I especially like the roll-away for getting underneath the bikes! :lol3

    And screw that second wife. My second walked away with a bike on her finger. And it wasn't a KLR.

    Any better shots of the wall just to the left of your tool box? Are those tools hanging on the wall?

    They are just storage bins for parts, screws, fasteners etc.

    In reality is not so compact, but you can take out the ramp and rear tyre extension to make it small. I modified the total height by placing and aluminum block on the last step. With this height it becomes a good working table.

    Close... it is a 71 Daytona destined to become a custom cafe racer. Someday I will finish it. The rest of the bike is somewhere distributed in those cabinets.

    I have a '71 Daytona but it is this really odd orange with white... Maybe it's a '72... I'll look when I get home. It is in line for resto.
