Not too sure how this is going to turn out,
but I only have 3 or 4 weeks to get something built.

Current plan is a 6m x 9m steel "3 car"
About 20 x 30 foot, with 2 roller doors,
and lift the ground 400mm "ish"
Hopefully something like this....

I've worked long and hard for the last 30 years,
always wanted a "bike only" shed, no kids push bikes,
lawn mowers or the usual junk that fill's it up.

Im also looking into breaking a few bikes up for spares / parts.
Ebay cheapies, damaged auction bikes etc etc,
but ONLY 4 cylinder 1000cc+ Suzuki's.

I have a 2nd bike bench on order to match the current one.
Cheap chinese crap but I've used or had a bike sat up on it
everyday for the last 2 years and it works well.

Old house is now sold/gone so I treated myself to a 2nd bike lift,
a 2nd roll cab tool chest and so decent racking / shelving.
Loads still to do.

Bought a heap of timber,
Put up 5 rack's of shelves,
Sorted out most of my tool's,

Slowly getting organised.

Might get to look at a bike soon !!!

Managed to find time and $'s to put a front tyre on the B-King.
Pilot Road 3. New one for me, looks different.
Any good ? Time will tell.....






....and im still collecting / finding / buying Busa bits.
Not 100% sure why !
Might come in handy if I drop on a wreck/crashed bike?

Managed to convince everyone to get me shed
related gifts for Xmas, and had a few days over
Xmas to sort things out.

At least now I can find things and do a few jobs.

Have an endless list of "projects" id like to do,
but as is normal, my time, money and ability
is going to bring me back to reality!

Called into the tyre fitter after work and had him put a set of
Sportsmarts ( multi compound) fitted to my spare rim's,
with my favorite 190/55 kept in stock.
(tip's in better than the stock 200/50)
Fitted and balanced, $365 / 248 pounds.
Im happy with that.

Not sure what Gold wheels on a Black B-King
will look like but i've seen gold wheels on
a black GSX1400 at I thought it was OK.

They are from a later 2010 model,
same as Dave's. Xmas gift from the Mrs.

Where did you check ?

B-King has always been 200/50-17
Busa is a 190/50-17.

Same size wheels on both bikes.

agree
Got PR3's on the Ducati, they look a bit odd with those little slits but they are great in the wet or dry and appear to be lasting ok.
