Today I assembled my new trike sized Bike Barn motorcycle shelter. Since I recently bought a Tow Pac for my 95 Aspencade, my old Bike Barn tourer model was too small and the cover needed replacement. The polyester cover is good for about 5 years before needing replacement. The tourer model is designed for big touring bikes like the Goldwing and is plenty big enough for a 2 wheeler. My Tow Pac measures 63" wide as the 72" trike model is very spacious and roomy for my new trike modification. Assembly is a few hours. I bought my original Bike Barn in 2008 for my Burgman Maxiscooter as it was always waterproof and never blew over even in high winds. It has a security locking device as well to prevent opening. The Bike Barn is a quality product which brought me back as a returning customer to order again. As you can see in the pics it opens nearly completely for easy access to bike and provides a bomb proof shelter against the elements for those without a garage or shop. I am not associated with Bike Barn as this is simply a users review. http://www.thebikebarn.net/
Hey Ron and Ref, may not survive a nuclear blast or an East Texas tornado or an East Coast hurricane but it will survive a turd floater of a rain storm. My old one has been through a few marble sized hail storms too and straight line winds that broke the umbrella off our outdoor table. Never been through a rain storm with horned toads falling from the sky however.
I'm excited Val to try out this new mega sized Bike Barn with the Trike.
"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph." ~ Thomas Paine

when i got the 1200 wing i thought about getting a bike barn but the squirrels would just claw through the side, too bad there isn't a bike barn made of plastic
As you can see from my pics I live in the woods as we have lots of squirrels but they never have been a problem and no critters have ever tried to nest in the shelter. One of my customers uses moth balls on her roof where squirrels were chewing on woodwork.
