Winter storage for bike || NY/Brooklyn

Hi Colleagues,

I live in Brooklyn (Greenpoint/Williamsburg), NY and almost purchased a motorcycle.
Unfortunately, I don't have proper storage for winter.

I don't like local prices when you should spend a lot on such simple things.
It would be great if someone could provide some options for private storage in some other place.
Ready to discuss using your garage for some time =)

Wow, that's a very unique first post. I'd say it was spam...but it reads almost like a real post. Welcome aboard...I think. Hehe

So you are actually looking at getting a bicycle now because you don't have storage for a motorcycle?

If that's the case...then I'd say just take her inside! Put down some towels or a mat if you're worried about getting the place dirty.

Thanks for a tasty reply, but still I didn't get an answer.

Sure, I got space in a barn here for $10/mo.
That's the problem with local stuff, price is based on the local market.

I'm still not sure of the question. This forum is not about motorcycles.

sometimes when I mention that I ride bikes, a common reply is "what you got a Harley?"

Wisconsin, unfortunately you're in NY so you can expect to pay $100 & up.

Sorry, I found this in google using "motorcycle" tag.
Looks like its a bit difficult to find an online community for motorcycles, but even posting on this forum actually helped =)

No need to apologize, I just was confused.

motorcycleforum.com seems to be pretty active...might get more motorcycle specific info there!

If your apartment has elevator access, just get a Honda Grom and take it inside with you

I think you're right) Maybe there is admins who could help to create a separate thread for motorcycles.
Btw I was riding a lot MTB and BMX some time ago..maybe that's why I posted there =)

One would think the image of the bicycle would be a dead giveaway. And then there is the name of this very subforum: "General CYCLING Discussion." (Emphasis added.)

OP should just rephrase the question as looking for storage for their e-bike, then all is good.
