indoor storage solutions

Hi all
just wondering does anyone have any solutions for indoor motorbike storage solutions.... (hmm one too many solutions)
Ive got three bikes sitting in my loungeroom in my townhouse, and as much as i thought id like it i hate it. HAs anyone tackled this solution by boxing them off in an enclosure or something. Three bikes in the house take up a lot of room, so just wondering if anyone has thought of anything to tackle this. Unfortuantely i don't have a garage, i have a carport, and they are not going outside.

you can try one in each room like one behind the couch, one at the foot of the bed and one next to the desk . That is if you have 3 rooms.

B750 and B1078 RR both gone now.

You could always try one of the secure self-storage facilities (we have kennards near us) for two of the bikes then just keep one at home and rotate every week or so

You could always set up the lounge furniture in the carport...
Depending on where you live, it might offer you some additional entertainment of people watching, whilst offering that air conditioned feeling.

At least the bikes will be safe.

(1) Put them in prominant positions around the place on slowly turning podiums.

(2) Now set spotlights around and above each bike to compliment and highlight their individuality and sexiness(i'm suggesting three with each and consider colour filters for a couple of them for porno like affect)

(3) Play music to suit mood.Turn on spinning mirror ball. Sit on divan (divans are a sure hit with the ladies). Look at bikes.

+1 - I would also think of a way you could get one into the bedroom?

good idea. Make sure it has electricity available so that you can keep a battery tender going.
