    I intend to stay over the road and take time off maybe a couple times a year, and I need a safe place to store my Indian motorcycle, along with a few other things. Currently keeping the bike with family in a garage. I'm hoping to find another place to store it where it can be just as safe. My company doesn't have that many drop yards where I want to live/move, but I'm really happy with the company and not sure if I should find someone I can trust or find a different company close to where I prefer to live close to good secure storage. With the high cost of living going up in a place like Texas, I'm still not sure where/when I want to settle down. It just seems like a really nice place to ride. There are storage units with alarm in Huston that I couldn't find anywhere else, by far the best place I found. But overall I don't know if paying $1000 a year on storage is a good idea for a $20k bike that i really don't want to get rid of. I'd like to find a cheaper option

    Things to remember, make sure the storage you rent has an outlet to plug in a Battery tender. also consult your dealer about recommendations on fuel and long term storage.

    Our local Harley Dealer has this available (storage) for its customers, and they will prep the bike for storage as well. I keep my Dyna's suspended on a bike lift to keepp the tire off the ground when not being regularly ridden. I also keep my fuel full to the top but the carbs and injection ran out empty, meaning I turn the fuel off and let them run till the die. I top off my tanks with a Stabil fuel Stablizer mix well before capping the tank. Same thing on my Honda CR450r.
