Im a new bike owner and rider. I'm wondering if anyone has built a shed or storage container for the spyder. I cant find a shed with big enough doors to house my ride without being an eye sore. Need help I'm at the jersey shore and winter is comming fast.:(

Im also reading post about over heating I have the SE5 2011 and I notice that the temp. bars are reading close to H since I dont know what is normal what should it read.

I have been looking at plastic garden sheds BUT you need to find a 8' x 10' with a door opening of 66"

the bike will fit inside that with room to spare but you need to find out the door size first..

a 10' x 8' won't work as the bike is 8'6" long

I bought a shed from walmart (on line) that had doors that open up I think 78 inches it is a metal shed that is I believe 99 inches deep by 112 in. wide I can pull my bike in at and angle and have about 2 to 3 inches to spare to close the sliding doors cost about $ 400.00 plus dollars you have to put it together but it works have had it for about 2 plus years PS you should make a floor for the shed to sit on keeps the shed stable so far the shed has gone through 2 very heavy snowy Vermont winters still in good shape I have a 09 SE 5 gs model bike

I contacted Overhead Door here in Idaho and they fixed me up with a roll up door for the shed I had built that works so slick. They had to order it based on my measurements so I would imagine that any garage door buisness could do the same.

As far as the temperature bars, mine is an '08 RS SM5 and runs 4 bars most of the time, and 5 bars when I'm riding in 93+ degree temperatures at slower speeds. Depending on what make/model you've got, you may want to look into Spyderpops missing air dam and .... dang it, there's something else, and I should know it because I've got it installed... criminy.... anyway, check Spyderpops. Or hang around a bit, someone who knows what I'm trying to think of will be by and fill in the blank!
