    Exactly! Then you could probably even get away without building a fancy display case until returning back to work on a regular basis.

    Winterize & find a spot in the shade. Wait till first snowstorm, then shovel a big snowbank ontop of bike. Heated space is for working on projects.

    Only the bikes that are rideable get any attention. In Winter: studded ice tires & timbersled. Summer: Supermoto, knobbies, and highway.

    ^ exactly this. I dont use garage for any storage, except some small spare care parts. Maximize space for projects and repairs. I found fuel does not degrade nearly as fast if the bike is stored outside in the cold - didnt need fuel stabilizer if parked outside for the winter.

    I used to park mine in front of my car for the winter on the side stand. It was a double garage in a newer neighborhood, so it wasn't a big garage.

    At my new place, I'm sure I will do something similar. My new garage is bigger, but there's a huge work bench in there taking up a lot of space.

    Build a display case in your office at work and store it there over the winter.
    Thats what I did last year, hahaha.

    All ideas are more expensive than renting some space from @90_Shelby or myself.

    Last year I covered mine with a sheet and bike cover, cut tarps to wrap around the wheels and zip tied the whole thing up. got my rear wheel off the ground. Made some space in the garage this winter
