    Finding storage

    I can't keep a bike at the condo complex I'm at. Is there any good place to store a bike that I wont mind keeping my car at?

    BTW: Your house isn't a good place :p

    It wouldn't have been a problem untill 2 weeks ago. My GF and I have 3 cars, My 96 Impala SS, 95 Subaru wagon (commuter/winter ride) and her Jeep Cherokee. They instituted a '2 car maximum' rule so as it is were screwed They just got real anal about parking cause ppl were parked everywhere this winter.

    Were on the 2nd floor and theres a guy downstairs from me that has a sweet R1 parked on his porch, too bad I'm not on the 1st floor!

    I was thinking about self storage units, but I dont trust keeping a car there while the bike is out, and its generally a PITA.

    no friends nearby that live somewhere with more parking or their own garage/shed????
    Yea, that definatly wont work. I'm trying to convince my GF we can keep a bike at her parents house though Dont think that'll fly though

    No family, I just like my space in the car As of now, its got a cam, basic intake and exhaust mods, some suspension goodies too. Best so far (and I have a new fuel pump coming) is 14.2@97mph, 2.2 60 foot time. With the cam I should go 13s

    As for the GF's parents house, It is an option, but more of a last resort. Its like an hour away, and keeping my car there while I have the bike out isn't an option.

    rethink the self storage unit

    I know that it is not the best but I've done that in the past and never had any problems. Get one to store the bike in and use it for any other crap too. Check around-I used one in Lowell that was great-I stored a bunch of stuff including my bike and a couple of portable generators.....but check the fine print regarding the storage of flammable liquids, etc.-that may include the gas in the bike so be careful saying more than you need too

    PD

    How much was the unit? Did they care if you had your car parked there while you had the bike out?

    I was under the impression that it was somewhere near $100/mo and getting dropped off if I want to ride would flat out suck.

    I suppose if it was close enough I could have a mountain bike ad store that in the unit while I have the bike out

    Finding storage

    RE: Use

    I just parked my car in the regular parking lot. The business was run by a very nice older couple that had no problems with me leaving the car. Also, the units do cost 100+ (depending upon size) but I had other crap to store so it made sense. I was living in an apartment the size of a closet. I have multiple skis, bicycles etc.- Is you condo unit packed with stuff? Try a 10x10 and call around.

    As far as the locks go-the self-storage place I went to allowed you to use your own lock. The only way for someone else to get in was to cut mine.

    PD

    Yea, I dont have much other reason to get a self storage other than a bike. I'd be happy with a 5x8 closet type

    Maybe I shouldn't have counted out the 'At my house' option for responses
