Normally stored at an apartment parking lot or the open-to-air parking of a condo tower, during a hurricane a motorcycle is in serious risk of being thrown about like a toy. Where can I store one in safety? Assume "friend's garage" isn't available.

Rent a storage unit when you get warning of impending hurricane.

Aren't parking garages essentially open to hurricane force winds? Do they actually protect the vehicles inside?

you might want to get that storage shed before the hurricane. They are not easy to find when a hurricane is coming. I keep mine in a climate controled unit helps keep the salt off

Who makes hurricane-resistant storage sheds?

A basement level parking structure? Wedged in tight somewhere. I assume you live in a tall condo building. You would probably be able to find somewhere to sneak it.

I would bring that bike right into your condo, get a heavy duty piece of cardboard to park it on.!!! Take it up the elavator and bring it in. I've done that with one of our ATV's. We have french doors, and it fit right in. The garage was already filled with the other ATV's, and motorcycles. This is done everytime we have tornado warnings. I'm thinking about taking them with for a hurricane evacuation, but am afraid they will get taken off our trailer at a hotel. Still trying to figure that one out.

A motorcycle could be a very handy emergency vehicle when the traffic is gridlocked and the gas is hard to find. Can you get a carrier for your car or truck?
