Sounds super reasonable. I imagine that's heated etc A thought on the location: somewhat close proximity to a hotel or hostel would be great for riders who would use the garage as a pit stop on a long ride? I like the idea of being close to cta etc as well!

roughneck - The idea would be to create an environment that feels like you're doing your own repair in your own garage in terms of cost. Personally, I do my own repair because I want to save money but we'll get everyone's input to get the best balance. Even though we don't have a location, it's safe to assume that the facility will be heated to a reasonable amount through the winter. Excellent idea on the being near a hotel/hostel! We're starting to create a criteria list for the facility and I'll be sure to put that on the list. Thanks!

robertg - that's one of the pillars of MotoGarage, not only to do your own work but also to learn how. We plan on having classes ranging from very basic (cable maintenance, oil changes, tire pressure check) all the way to advanced classes (rebuilds, engine swaps) with the idea of making MotoGarage a place where you can learn to be the mechanic at your own pace.
All - this poll will remain open for the foreseeable future. Thank you for your votes and please continue to comment and question on anything you have in mind! Hopefully we'll be able to reference this graph in the months ahead to get a clear picture on where we should look. In the interim, please check our update page (more specifically the location portion) to see updates on the facility hunt!
