I have a 24 ft by 24 ft garage with a 2 car door and I have a corvette, S-10 blazer, and the R1 to put in it. Also, I have been considering building a trailer to haul 2 Sportbikes. I was wanting to see some pics or get some ideas. All help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Later:cool:

I thought the picture really helped put the issue into perspective. Plus I liked the fact that it was a faster RED car. Nice job!

Sorry man, you story is a little too abstract. I have two bikes, a mountain bike, and an SC300 to get into a garage that's 10x22. Needless to say, one of the bikes doesn't fit... I wish I had your problem!

I for one don't have a house or garage. Maybe most of the people that read your post don't have a garage. I'm sure someone can relate and give you feedback.

I wish I had a garage. I have to keep my bike in storage!!!!:mad: :mad: , cause my Jerkass Apt. complex doesn't allow bikes on hte property!!!! How [email protected]*ed is that!!!:machinegu
You should be happy that you have one period :) :beer

Btw, at my parents house we got a small house.. kind of place for my brother's bike and mine. They fit nicely in there. No heat or anything, just a shelter from rain and general bad weather. Works perfect.

I have a Bravada, an Explorer, an R1, an SX700, an SXViper, a two place snowmobile enclosed trailer, and a single place motorcycle trailer. All to be fit into a 15 x 25 garage. Oh and a buddy of mine that wants to put his new 02 R1 in there too.

But I am not sure what you want pictures of, the trailer? or the garage.

If you are looking for an enclosed motorcycle trailer, I think that you are going to be better off buying a WellsFargo or something like that. If you just want an open two place trailer then you should try to buy a used boat trailer and trim it down and put a couple of pieces of marine grade plywood down and get some wheel chaucks (sp) fastened to it. Not sure what you are looking for though, not trying to be a wise ass either.

Later on

Is the Blazer not short enough to where if you pull it all the way forward, you could park the R1 sideways behind it? I have a small 2 car garage and I manage to squeeze 5 motorbikes and a car in there. Sure it's a pain in the ass to move everything around just to get to something (like the lawnmower), but that's just the way it is. :) I can't help you with an idea for a trailer because I myself don't have one. I wouldn't use it enough to justify spending the money on one. The only time I trailer a bike is to take it to the shop when it will not run, and that is where my local U-Haul comes in handy. ;)

I have an average two car garage and an additional single width garage that has a higher door and is two cars deep (built for an average sized RV to fit in).

In the main garage, I have the wife's Ford Explorer and my Ford Taurus, bicycles and assorted garage crap.

In the other I have a Honda CB1000, a Honda ST1100, a Yamaha YZ-426 and a Ducati 916 along with my two bike trailer. It's a bit crowded to say the least.

I've seen a really neat folding trailer in some Harley magazines and in a few shops. Ultra heavy duty, 13" wheels and yet it folds up to go along he back side of the garage wall. Wish I'd bought one! I think they're around $1500 - which ain't cheap but it's cheaper than buying another garage or renting space. I'll see if I can find a picture of it.

Hey everyone, thanks for the ideas, I now realize how lucky I am to have a good size garage. Maybe this was a stupid thread I started. I just know how many knowledgable(sp?) people there are here. oh, and "bekustes":finger I ride the crap out of my bike, but if I want to go 3 hrs to Kandsas City or 5hrs to Tulsa or 7 hrs to Denver, then I have to ride it and not trailer it? What if it rains or hails? I am not a wussy, Let's be practical here. In Tulsa at WSRC those guys were trailering there bikes. I guess all those bikes are trailer queens? Sorry to get off on a rant, just po's me when some jackass totally misses the point because of his narrow minded view. Later.....
