I had to cut it down I was going for 6 car but would not quite fit where I wanted it so went for only 5 car but each one over 3M.  :001:  Nicely it is over 6M deep as well.  SO even with cars in you can get a good bench or whatever in front.  OK I have to fit two cars in but after that all space for bikes and benches.

Looking to kit it out.  I have bought a new set of TENG tools (sockets and spanners) and now looking for benches and even a motorbike lift table.  If anyone has any suggestions as to what is good I would welcome it.  Then need compressor and I think I have the rest. 

Got to wire it all up no power at the moment.

I do have another double garage but that one is difficult to get in to as they face the wrong way???  No idea why.  The problem is there is gravel everywhere so you have to be careful on the bikes.

Impressive space....but what about the Headroom ?

Getting a Motorcycle Lift would be something I would consider essential and you need at least 600mm above the Bike windscreen to make that viable..

You know I can recommend the Big Blue Bike lift and you can probably still get the deal from the company if you ask nicely!

Headroom is an issue so a low lift would be good  too old now to grovel on the floor.  I will check height etc.  I have different bikes so need something easy for wach of them.  I will check out big blue.  I do have a hydraulic lift but it is just a flat bed so no good if fairing or exhausts underneath.

Thats the joy of big blue.... you can lift it just enough to get the wheels off the floor or if the weather is nice... take it outside and lift the beast high enough in the air you can virtually walk under it!
