Bike shelter

Postby GillesGLW » Fri Nov 11, 2016 7:29 am



Hi everyone,

Greetings from Switzerland!

I'm currently looking for a solution to protect my bike during winter as I don't have a garage or something similar to allow my GL1500 to sleep in a dry and warm place.

I currently had a simple cover which does the job but I've seen some shelters that would completely cover the bike and which seems to be more resistant.

One comes from the Bike Barn (http://www.thebikebarn.net/) and seems quite good.

Could you please let me know which cover you have, if you have any?

Thanks,
Gilles

I have the BikeBarn for my 2000 Goldwing trike and I really like it. The workmanship is superb!!

I got a cycle shelter from a friend a couple years ago and kept the wing in it last winter, it worked better than I thought it would. this winter I'm going to put the wing in my neighbors garage and put the mighty ST 1300 in the cycle shelter

You could bring it in the house. If I wasn't married.

There is also some diy motorcycle shelters out there.

Definitely going to look into this as I'll be moving in with my fiancée at her mother's house in a couple months, and there's no garage there.
If my gal ain't happy, I ain't happy. Thank God she loves bikes.

Thank you everyone for your replies, I had a good laugh!!!!

I just ordered a shelter at the Bike Barn, it's a US made product so I'm confident it will be a product with high quality (like my wing!)

I'll share some pics once it will arrive!
