My garage now. In the past in my basement. In the months when I'm riding buggy (Nov - Mar) in my minivan.

No museum here. Just a messy garage with a couple of kayak lifting racks.

That's a nice system eric. Though I would have to wear a helmet in the garage, I'd destroy my skull there...

I keep waiting for Cheeze to post a pic of his kids playing video games sitting on his new GT in the living room...

Don't get the really cheap one. It only has one line that you pull on. It pulls one end of the buggy up and then you need to grab the buggy to level it, then pull again.

The nicer ones have two lengths of rope coming down (as a loop). You can pull both and keep the buggy level or hold one rope and pull the other rope thay you desire to go up. Much smoother operation.

Mine are in the basement. Kind of a pain. Should probably sell the PL Comp XR+ and get the BBS overhead in the garage. It's on the to do list...

During the non buggy season it goes into hibernation in the garage or basement. In buggy season it sleeps in my car.

Not yet my friend. The summer months are dead for wind, and now that the wind is starting to pick up so are the hours at work. Going to try to get her out next weekend though! I'm itching for some seat time!!!
