But you just never know.---Yes, that super dangerous gallon of fuel in a sealed tank on an injected bike with a carbon canister to catch the miniscule amount of vapor that might try to leave in a climate controlled environment. 🙄 Safety nannies of the world love applying blanket coverage. They think if one person did something dumb, everyone will be dumb so we all need more laws and rules to control our lives.
I would drain the carbs on a non-FI bike and drain the tank for long storage no matter where it was stored. Storing a carbed bike inside, full of fuel, especially with an open petcock is just asking for trouble.
Meanwhile, an infinite source of natural gas is pumped into homes all around the world and space heaters and candles are sold everywhere. That's never gone wrong, has it? We build the majority of our homes out of kindling, after all.
Most people's risk assessment skills are lacking, plain non-existent in some. That's why you can buy alcohol and cigarettes at any corner store, but you have to wear a mask to walk ten feet to a table in a restaurant. Our 🤡-world is full of brain-dead overbearing authoritarians with zero risk assessment skills.
Worrying about a bike kept in the house makes no sense whatsoever when riding that same bike is infinitely more dangerous. Hell, a very large number of people's jobs are far more dangerous.
That being said, I personally wouldn't have a bike inside an apartment because the situation is wholly different than a house you own. In that case you are adding risk to others without their knowledge. It may be a minor risk, but that isn't the point.
If he's like this guy I can understand why she would put her foot down as she would have to sleep in another bed.-----View attachment 48940 View attachment 48941 I'm jealous of my Dad keeping a few of his bikes in the house. The vfr has only done 1000 miles and the 1979 cbx has only 12 k on it. He has 2 other Vfr750's in the shed. Mum put her foot down after 2 bikes in the house. I've ridden the cbx and it's so smooth and easy to ride
