Motorcyclists know the thrill of the open road... and those without garages know the hassle of securing motorcycle covers to their bikes in inclement weather. For garageless riders, a host of companies have designed a variety of solutions to keep bikes dry, ranging from flimsy to whimsy.
For those seeking a little more structure, from Poland comes this steel Moto-Box Roller with a sliding track that locks the front wheel into place (warning, turn your sound down):
For those that don't want to deal with the ergonomics of hunching over to pull the bike back out, from Germany comes the BikeBox 24, whose hinged-front design means you can both ride the bike into it and back it out while sitting on it:
Also from Germany is Die Motorradgarage, a peculiar telescoping design presumably meant for tight spaces. It features the capacity to store tools and can more or less get out of the way when you want to work on the bike:
None of these are as secure as a permanent garage, of course; these mostly appear to be solutions for those living in low-crime areas. Let's take this very basic Cervocav model from Germany, for instance:
That would be neat to have in front of your building in NYC. Since it's transparent, you could look out of your window and see if your bike has been stolen yet.
