Where do you keep your strom?

I am curious as to where/how you guys store your stroms when not riding. I have a cover for mine but have been finding that I leave it uncovered most of the time out in the driveway. If you have a particular reason for where/how you store yours, let us know!

Mine sits outside 90% of the time, no cover but under the roof overhang. Stays fairly dry.

Basement garage. My truck sits outside (we have to have our priorities right!).

Garage, next to ATV and portable ice fishing hut with enough space for snowmobile - a man for all seasons. Truck sits outside. Priorities are priorities.

Most of the time mine sits outside on a slab w/o a cover. I do cover the bikes when we expect bad weather for a month or 2 every winter. We usually have several warm spells between storms so it is not unusual to ride in December or January.

On the other hand I've had bikes covered and buried in the snow for a few weeks.

in the parking area under the carport (apartment) with a cover on. The bike sticks out a little and when it rains (it hasn't yet) it will roll right onto the bike. I have a nelson riggs cover and i put in on every night.

Next to the cage in underground parking of apt. bldg.(actually ground level) Front disc lock and big ugly chain through rear wheel and around a concrete pillar. Amateur thieves have tried two other bikes but mine is too ugly to steal.
