  1. Do you mean pre covid? Or just recently in general? With the recent social distancing measures in place I think the dining side of things would have changed and maybe how many can stay there. I haven't been there for 5 months but if you've never been it has pretty much everything. Its no 5 star resort but it's pretty good considering what it has.. Rooms that sleep 2 to 6 with a bunkhouse that can sleep upwards of 12 i think, swimming pool, bar dining area, lounge, fire pits, TV's and so on with 450 acres of private property to play on. Mild to wild just depends on what you want to tackle. Good place to take anyone who has no rec reg to learn or to go run a muck in the hills. I always have a good time there. Go off the property and you have the pines, look outs, waterfalls, plane crash site mine shafts. Pretty much has it all
  2. @99percent Brilliant 😂 Option 1 is out. option 2 is the winner. Her cars kicked out I've taken over the garage and weirdly enough she hasn't complained about it. In her words "as long as you wash it from time to time i don't give a s#$t if it lives outside" she's a good egg but I heard when you get married they aren't so kind lollll
  3. Okay I'll give this a crack 👍
  4. @Gypsy501 I usually use wd40 on the bike while some say not to I've never had a problem coating the motor after washing it, repels water and easier to clean later. I think this stuff lasts longer though
  5. @Dann thats a proper man cave! Haha yes lubes and oils are better off outside, even then the smell comes in the house depending what you're using
  6. @dalesween she's pretty good but in the new places my chances of ever bringing them in are zero. Which I guess is fair enough 🤣
  7. @ktm-sean 😂 might settle for the spare room because i think she'll kill my ass before the bike would lol @dalesween I have pulled them inside before to do light work and if looks could kill I'd have been dead on the spot. She hit me with "do you know what those floorboards cost? I replied yes because I paid for them!" Not much was said bar please don't scratch them lol @Dann what a set up! Escape all the cold, rain even heat. I wish I had my last bike in a couple times but needless to say people thought I had lost the plot
  8. @ohmygewd I have a few blankets that were going to be thrown away so they're sitting pretty under them. I think I'm being a little too pedantic with it but when you spend that much money and time on it it's silly nit to protect it
  9. Definitely don't want them rusting away so they've been moved until i sort it out
  10. Thanks for the replies guys, looks like sisalation will be something to look at. It was -1 here last night so obviously everything was frozen and wet. When it gets like that I don't think much can help a tin shed. My main concern is moisture playing with the electrics and getting into everything but without insulating it properly I don't know what will do the trick bar changing the temperature inside the shed or circulating the air. That being said maybe the garage is the best place for them atm
  11. @Gypsy501 I got some shopping to do i think
  12. @Gypsy501 haha It was horrid I know! I usually try get home in daylight to clean everything but that didn't happen, I left in darkness and got home in darkness. Bike is now shining again after I spent yesterday on it it's as good as new. Except for a broken throttle tube from trying to use your line up that rock face haha oops
  13. Mate some of the google searches I did weren't far off suggestions like that lol one was "use a light cover and run a fan or heater" I have no power in there so it's out but would it be if I did... haha Yeah I'm getting a little bit of that which is a pain because I didn't have the space to go any bigger
  14. firstly if this has already been covered I apologise. Okay, so I've recently moved and the new place doesn't have as big of a garage which means either a car stays out or the bikes need somewhere else to sleep. I stole 3X3m of my yard, poured a slab and erected a colorbond shed, beauty it's tucked away at the back both cars in happy days. Except for one small problem, its cold and damp outside which of course means condensation. I walked into the shed and the bikes were literally wet! They were covered with blankets (not touching the floor) with the blankets being damp also. After seeing this I put them back in the garage and kicked the mrs car out. Obviously insulation would help but I've never seen anyone go this far for a garden shed. I can't be the only one storing a bike in the shed so what do you guys/girls do to prevent rust and moisture getting in and around everything? I get "its a dirtbike they get wet" but getting it muddy and wet on a weekend is different to it being moist every night for weeks at a time through winter. SO, what do you do? Carpet under the bikes, special covers or just move them all together?? Or am I just being too pedantic about it
