Why do people think parking a motorcycle in the living room is so strange?
Our friends always burst out laughing when we open the door, and there’s a bike.
But we’ve had a range of motorcycles in the house over the years.
(There’s a Triumph Thruxton in the living room right now.)
It seems pretty normal to us.
Because here’s the thing…

Keeping a motorcycle in the house has many benefits. It’s not just a beautiful addition to your living room – it can be useful too! It can be a bar, a bookshelf, or even a toy box. It’s now harder to steal, and it’s an inspiring work of art you can enjoy even when you’re not riding it.

When it’s too cold to ride motorcycles, you need a Plan B. Parking your motorcycle in your living room is a good place to start. You could also research your next bike, buy some new bike gear, or check out a motorcycle blog. It all helps you make it through winter to the first motorcycle ride of spring.

The thought of being cut off from motorcycles for months is beyond depressing.

Well, I’ve got you covered.
Here’s a whole list of motorcycle themed stuff you can do in the meantime.
With any luck, they’ll keep you distracted enough until it’s time to find your bike key again!

Let’s think this through like rational grown-ups (heh, heh, heh)…

You can’t just rush into buying a motorcycle. You have to think about it carefully. But it’s true that motorcycles can improve every aspect of your life: from your mental health to your work day. A bike can even add a spark to your relationship. And what else but a motorcycle can make you look cool without even trying?
