Storing a bike in Miami

Hi, a few months ago I was looking for a place to store a bike on the West Coast. Plans change .


I wanted to ship my GS and ended up buying a 2009 klr in Illinois in April (4500 miles). I rode it all the way to Vegas via Arkansas, New Mexico, etc. I went back to Belgium to work and I have just spent August riding from Vegas to DC, with a little detour to visit San Francisco. I will be in DC until the end of the week, then I will ride to Miami. Originally my plan was to ship the klr to Chile but for personal reasons it will have to wait. I will store the bike somewhere in Miami, preferably for a reasonable price. I still dont know where though - any ideas ? - until May and then do the TAT. Travelling in the Western part of the US was really amazing.

normally i'd offer you space in my garage, but i will be moving in 2 months and not sure what facilities i'll have in the new place. there are plenty of vehicle storage places around but they're not super cheap.

how much do you feel like spending? i have some friends with a garage a bit north of miami and they might be convinced to rent out some garage space.

Hola Javier ! Quizas ... Estabas en la boda ? Estoy buscando en Miami porque estare alli con mi novia y tendremos poco tiempo.

Hi Teevee, thanks for the idea. I would be happy to pay something like 50 - 60 a month. It is what I pay to park my bike normally.

Yo conocí en BA un Laurent Bertin (¿Francés?) de Bélgica con una Voxan Scrambler que volví a encontrar en San Rafael Mendoza para el 1º Rally Dakar en Argentina…
No sé de cual boda hablas. Tal vez dos personas distintas o una perdida grande de memoria…

Saludos
