Just dont tell anybody. I am pretty sure your leasing office would shit if they knew about it.

Sneak it in at night...keep blinds closed = win.

I park mine inside. I think just about everybody in my building knows I keep it inside. Yesterday afternoon I was pulling her out and the guy above me was walking down the stairs and started laughing, and asked if i needed help. I just responded "Nope, do it every day." he said that his wife told him, "You know the boy downstairs has a motorcycle in there?!" then he said "I thought she was seein shit!"

There was a letter distributed to our complex by management saying that it was against the rules to keep "Motorized Vehicles" including but not limited to motorcycles inside the apartment. It was a part of the new Resident Parking stickers they distributed for some deal they made with a wrecker service. You think I'm leaving my bike outside an apartment complex?! Chained, Alarmed, Disc-Locked, Covered?

its against fire code and will get you evicted if you get caught and the manager is an asshole. Plus the gas fumes are a bitch. Screw it i wouls drill into the concrete and sink an eyelet anchor with concrete epoxy and cable lock it. I wouldnt put mine inside ever again after Daytona and the gas fume incident. We were dizzy for hours and i had a headache all weekend.

Maybe there's a utility shed that's somewhat secure that you could use? I would also think about getting/installing a Scorpio, disk lock and a tie down anchor there if it has to be outside.

Do you live in an apartment??? Did you just throw the little garage thing in a parking spot or what??? I've heard this suggested but never known it to actually happen.

The gasoline fumes may give you a headache, but not close to the one you'd get if a furnace happened to ignite those same fumes. There are reasons why this usually is illegal. But, if you keep all the windows open all the time, it might be OK. :)

i kept at least one bike inside my apartment for 2 years no problems. you should only smell fumes if the gas cap seal is leaking or if you have a petcock that leaks. the only time I smelled gas was when I had a leaky petcock and gas flooded the carbs and drained on my floor.

and that was with smoking in the apartment

Now apartment managers would really not think kindly of someone using a water hose inside. :eek:nfloor
