I used to park my bike outside my flat with ground anchor and chain with a cover on, but some scumbag tore out the battery, broke my seat to get it!...so now with my bike has to be kept at my Dads 'safe house' for protection in Cleethorpes!... Luckily I don't need the bike for transport, just fun....but still indicative of the society we live in that nothing is safe from thieving scum.
At last! Woohooo! I have a garage space for my bike!..I printed some leaflets and posted them through 100's of letter boxes this morning in my local area and bingo!...a lad whose just moved in around the corner has space next to his bike! He said I can park it there rent free! ...so an end to an epic saga, meaning I can get out and about on my bike more this year! Now...looking for panniers to fit a vfr800....
Glad you've finally found some A2P but can I just make a suggestion. ...... though you may have thought of this already.
As well as having bike locks on the bike whilst it's garaged, take photos of the bike (and any other gear you intend storing there) when it's in this lads garage - both interior and exterior shots showing the bike and identifying (to the garage) features.
Plus, ask for your own set of keys to the garage.
Also, have a written (signed by both of you) statement/agreement that you began garaging your bike with his permission, rent free, on xyz date. Plus any other details you may think you need. To prevent any possible disputes re alleged owed monies later on.
This lad is probably ok, but you need evidence that your bike is in his garage, because if it disappears from there, how else can you prove that it was there?
Suspicious? Moi? Nope...just covering all bases! Good luck!
Nuff said PB...sound advice that I will follow, gonna get a written agreement/consent, didn't think about photos, so will be doing that. I've got locks for bike and garage, ground anchor etc. Third party involvement... Good idea, perhaps I should drive with someone to pick my bike up from Cleethorpes and they can follow (try! ;-D ) me to the garage...
