Coming soon. The new bicycle mancave

Hey guys,
Been gone from here for a while so I'm a little out of touch. Busy keeping the business rocking during covid. However Ive been going back and forth for over a year now on whether or not I'll upgrade the mancave. I finally did it. Check out the video.

So much space!
Seems like a clear indication that the bike collection will be growing, eh?? Any planned acquisitions?

or... it would be a great venue for roller races in the winter! Rollers... the training device for those that aren't afraid to fall off the bike at 0 mph.

had a hard choice a4 quattro with stick (8.5 2015) or avant with auto......went with the stick and good roof racks. Avants (wagons or estates in britich) are so under appreciated in the the US)

That’s going to be an awesome space. Looking forward to seeing the progress. No more flooding concerns! So, this is going to be a purchase rather than a rental? Is it far from home? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone into my basement/garage to do laundry and end up distracted by my bikes. If I had an off-site man cave (especially one with such promise) my wife would start getting suspicious about my all-too-frequent “trips to the store.”

I have to build the place out. It will be done by spring. Id like to have some vintage shows there. As you know I like my cars. They will be in front, bikes in the back. Just wait till you see what I have on the back wall when im done! You'll love it.

I had a 15 sportwagen and because of Diesel gate they gave me what I paid for it even after having 65k miles on it! Thats how I got the A4! I used the extra doh to upgrade! lol The RS6 is awesome. Id have a hard time justifying it! I like My TTRS. its just as fast and costs about half.

I cant wait till i get this finished. It will probably take till the end of the winter. I purchased it. Its a condo. I am also housing my business there as well so its a write off. I enjoy cars too. So I'll have a couple of those in there as well. My wife likes it. upstairs will be a nice living area. The entire complex is one big party place. Its a country club for car people. Check out these videos.

Not quite what I meant. Am thinking to when all are built and there are noisy parties with cars revving engines and music cranking from a half-dozen nearby units when you're trying to have a less raucus gathering.

Doesn't look likely to go that direction, but being the relative introvert that I am - and liking my space...

So far I've been hanging out there a bit and find that most are adults. I'm probably the poorest guy there and nobody has sized me up or anything stupid. If you dont like a little party here or there your in the wrong place.
