Blokes living room/lounge...

Hmm, Hi-visibility builders jacket, dartboard, multi-gym with drying clothes hanging from it, girl calender on wall, motorbike...this is what can happen when the only people living in a house are a bloke and his teen son.

It is not a view usually found in the TV ad's of a media acceptable 'perfect' home but it is perfect for me and my lad.
Oh, for any health n safety doom porn types out there, my home is well ventilated with multiple escape points and smoke/heat alarms. If you don't like the idea of a bike in a living room thats fine, I would probably feel uncomfortable visiting your 'perfect' home as well, but as far as crying 'danger!' nope already risk assessed so leave comments like that to your own thoughts cheers Wink

Nice photo! Looks perfectly cozy to me. At least you haven't put the bike to bed with blankets and things to keep it warm. Think it will only be then I'd get worried if it were indoors. Razz

Haha cheers Dean, I think you're right about the blankets!
My lad has named 'her' as well, she's called Cherry, and my cat Molly has discovered the saddle as a comfy perch to stare down at me on the sofa...weird special needs cat to be honest but that's another story Razz

Cheers Dude, it's my son's bike, just waiting a few more days for his 16th birthday and a simple 'riding round cones' test when he'll be legal on UK roads.

...the picture was actually inspired by a conversation with a mate. When I told him the bike was in my living room he laughed that it just added to the scene which clearly indicates that no girls live in my house.
My sons mother has already told our lad that it's not going anywhere near her front door, so I've been booked to build a bike-port/shelter at the side of her house in January Smile

Hey, the bike has to be stored somewhere right? As long as the bike is reasonably clean and you not working on it (changing oil, etc.), I don't see a problem. Yes, I do know two people that work on their bikes in the house even though they have garages. Kind of explains why they are divorced!

Ah, you see where I'm coming from, I've got no garage on my yard so my living room is the next best option to keep the elements at bay!
...I would do an oil change indoors if it was raining outside though, just more carefully haha Wink
