    My wife just moved her new bike inside to the living room, next to the TV this evening, so I can help her do a few upgrades.

    Surfboards are in the way.....

    I don't need to move the bikes anywhere in the northern house since I can go downstairs and stare at them all I like but in the shore place, the surfboards take up the extra space in the living room. I do sleep about 18" from my road bike which is the only necessary bike in the flat coastal plain.

    The surfboard situation will only get worse when I get a SUP next spring.

    Thank goodness my wife is understanding.

    Mine as well as my girlfriends reside right next to the TV! Mostly because we live in an apartment without a garage.

    Two in the living room, three in the basement. The living room spot is closest to the front door and I don't have a garage.

    I used to keep 4 or 5 in the bedroom, but that was in college. They stay in the garage now.

    A while back, I rode one up the front stairs and did a loop through the living room and kitchen and back out, just to show a friend I could clean the front stairs. Probably won't do that any more after we replace the carpet.

    I leave it in the garage, I do however, find myself standing out there staring at it lovingly. Sometimes I wipe it down real gently and caress it.

    I never move any of mine out, unless it's to ride them.

    I've always wanted to do this when I get my own place. The girl wouldn't mind it either, in fact she would be down to bring hers inside too. I wouldn't want it to be tracking in dirt though.
    You can find me in the woods -- playing in the dirt and mud -- on my 2013 Trek Mamba -- or in my 1984 Chevrolet K10.

    No. It proved too dangerous for the walls when I tried to ride them around in the living room. I see a bike, I want to ride it. Seeing my bikes in the living room after a few cold brews allows me to hear their pleading to go for a spin.

    Attempting to bunny hop the bike under a ceiling fan: bad idea.

    Mine and the wife's bikes have their own bedroom. Of course they have to share the room with all the climbing and camping gear, but everything works out.

    baha ha. i have to keep mine in the livingroom. no garage here.

    me and the stud have literally sat on the couch and stared at our bikes for two hours and talked about them. we make fun of ourselves about it too. i swear it almost becomes sexual, like "that curve of the downtube is so sexy"

    Mine is in the living room. But not so I can look at it while I watch TV. The real reason is so I can watch TV while I work on it. I also have my 5 dirt bikes in the house for the same reason.

    That house for sale? Don't worry about cleaning up the yard. Well maybe get rid of the swingset, the trampoline and the pool. I need room for a few bikes.
    I have a device that can access the total knowledge of man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and argue with strangers.

    it was an airbag. you huck the stair gap and trick off of the trampoline into the pool now but on windy days belly flops are safer. the hoa doesn't like me but whatever..

    @trailninja- i'll trade you the house with all the bikes for a Spesh Demo and an all expense paid summer @ Whistler or French/Italian alps combo!

    Haha, this is good stuff

    All of my bikes live inside the house, but most are either in the workshop room or the foyer. Being 120 years old, the basement is too dank to keep anything nice in, and I don't have a garage. My one retro bike lives in the living room more as a decoration but my MTB or road bike get moved in from time to time..

    Being apartment dwellers, our bikes are right behind the living room couch.
    Yes, kinda nice to pinch the tires, or stare at them when I'm fed up with all the crap on the tube after about ten minutes.

    Looking forward to having a garage again someday though. Would be nice for my lazy male self to just chuck the muddy f---er against the wall in the carhole. Now every ride involves "THE RIGAMAROLE". Poaching the building hose if I can get it, or garbage cans w/ water and rags out in the hallway. To be fair, my wife loves to clean the bikes when we ride together.
