how annoying is it to bring a bike indoors ?

hey..

i will hopefully be picking up my new bike soon (assuming i can find one i like) anyways I used to keep my old bike outdoors, but i want to keep the new one inside. I have a spare room that i used to keep my 250 dirtbike in, not to hard to get in, but do you think taking an R6 or GSXR600 through a normal door will be difficult ??? the bars and foot pegs on the dirtbike were sometimes annoying, but sportbikes are a tad bulkyer.

oh why cant i have a garage ???

thanx

Just remember any fire insurance on the home will be dropped if a burned m/c is also found in the home if said home has a fire, be it your home of that of some how owner.

As a licensed insurance agent, I would have to ask for a quote from the home owner's policy before I buy that one!

Arrow How annoying you ask

Depends how annoying it is to your wife, g-friend, sig other, etc.,

I kept my bike in the house for 8 months while my garage was out of commission (from a tree) but my g-friend gave me crap about it the whole time (so what if they were in the living room, wasn't like they were sitting on the couch ....)

Easier thru a sliding glass door. I agree with okie on the insurance thing... I asked my agent when they came to look at the rumble that was my garage and he said as long as the bike didn't cause a fire, your good....

I'll Sleep when I'm Dead....

I've shoved my bikes through a lot of motel doors so I would think you will not have a problem as long as you have a pretty straight shot at it.

I walk my TLR in and out of the house all the time. My living room is my garage. Thankfully, we have a seperate room for the TV etc! Fold the mirrors in, don't sweat the pegs etc since my double pipes clear the door np.
