Doing a little expansion and refinement of the Motorcycle Cover Shop, I came across an arch-shaped folding tent garage just for motorcycles called the Bike Barn. It is an arch-shaped frame tent that folds like a Bimini top on a boat to create a portable garage space, providing protection from rain, sun and snow without the bother of a soft cover and without contacting the surface of the bike. The frame can be weighted or secured to the ground with pins or bolts to resist wind and owner testimonials indicate they can carry a heavy snow load.
The Bike Barn is not alone in this market, facing competition from the similar Speedway shelters, CycleShell and MotoShell portable garages and others. Slightly larger shelters with a more conventional tent shape are made to fit not just motorcycles but also ATV’s , personal watercraft, lawnmowers, or any other small machine that can benefit from indoor storage. With a rubber motorcycle parking mat, any vacant patch of lawn can become the new motorcycle garage at a very reasonable price!
