Hi all Got my shiny new toy today, rode it around the block a few times and had it parked underneath our pagola for me. Now I can't get it back out... (any Brisbaneans want to come help? ) Feels like this belongs in the "Your embarassing newbie mistakes" thread. My options: 1) Wheel bike through garage to pagola. Not good idea a) have to move my car every time, b) glass sliding doors between garage and pagola give maybe a finger width playing room to get through, and c) not strong enough to push bike over the ledge the doors slide along. 2) Between garage and side fence is a gate. Park behind gate. Issue is maneuvering as the concrete path is reeeeally narrow (and I'm too small/weak/gumby to actually pick the bike up and carry it which is what was done for me today), though it could be widened if I destroyed mother nature's gardens and put some huge wooden planks/similar down. 3) Park in driveway. Behind a kinda low bush or in front of Dad's truck (which isn't home between ~3am and evening). 4) Park on road/nearby cul-de-sac. 5) Leave car elsewhere (possible if I had other undercover parking options), park bike in garage and have Dad rip my head off/slash bike seat and tyres. I would leave the car outdoors if it weren't a 2006 Mazda 3 bought for me... Issues with 3 and 4 are protection from the elements, and security. Regarding security; I live next to a park. Very quiet area but soooo many children and some nights you hear drunks and find many empty bottles lying around. Anyone else had space issues? How have you dealt with them? DIY projects? Suggestions? Stories? That's the thing with Asian families... we have these tiny pieces of land with massive houses on them to store our bulk-buy toilet paper, so sfa in terms of yard space. WHAT DO?
