All change at the Hippo-Cave
Time to get my Moto Guzzi V7 road legal so I can play on it once again. The Beta 390RR is a cracking bike, but it is my winter toy, so not gonna be used for a bit... especially seeing how awesome the Aprilia Tuareg 660 is on the trails!

Do you have bikes that only come out certain times of the year? I am an all year rider, but my V7 is not an all year round bike, so gets tucked away once the English weather takes a turn for the worse, and my Beta is more fun in the mucky winter weather than it is in the summer, so they switch places in Spring.
I'll need to swap the tax around on them and get an MOT for the V7, but can't wait to take it out again, only rode it a handful of miles last year.

Nice fleet! I love having bikes for different purposes... right now my Kawis only come out when it's > 60F out, but the Harley gets ridden all year long, except for when the roads have salt/snow/ice on them.

Seriously though, awesome work shuffling the bikes in that tight space!
It certainly worked up a sweat getting the Beta ito the house... I had to remove the handlebars to get it out the garage and between my sheds while pushing it up a ramp over the steps backwards :D Am glad it is light! :D

Dammit! Removing bars and pushing backwards is too much. :oops:

Is the next mod to the house an easier way to get the bikes in and out?

Sadly I didn't think about this when I built my mancaves, so is something I'll just have to deal with.
Maybe I'll look into moving my front door to the living room, although it is only 2 times a year I need to do it currently.
