Helmet and gear storage

Just a little something to store the gear and stuff. Keeps it all together and out of the wife's way.

Looks Halloween-ish? I store my extra riding gear and helmets in a plastic closet enclosure I picked up at a garage sale. It hangs in the garage and is convenient.
Keeps the spiders out.

I like the idea but I have to keep mine in my office closet to keep out of sight from my wife.
How does the jacket, pant and glove collection get so big anyway?

Some people just don't get how a 300+ mile round trip for lunch makes sense.
If you are reading this, you probably do.

This is down in my shop. She rarely comes down. So the "occasional" new gear that she sees, I usually explain away with "oh, I've had that jacket forever...it was down in the shop." ?

Brilliant!

If it's a good day to wash the bike, it's a better day to ride the bike.

While she's holding what appears to be two new pair of shoes and asking you which one you like better with the outfit she's wearing!

That's why my plastic closet is in the garage!

Hmmm... Sounds like with the right cover, it might work with a new motorcycle:

"Oh, I've had that one for months, hon. It was tucked behind the snowblower."

That's exactly what my wife say's to me when I comment on some piece of clothing she is wearing !...h.

I love the smell of wd40 in the morning.
