It is interesting how Urban Legend even makes it into print.

I just assumed it was a typical Harley guy bringing his bike in the house to clean it.

This was also busted on "MythBusters." Not that they are a definitive source or anything.

Hey I resent that. I only rebuilt one of my Harleys in the livingroom when I rode them in my sordid youth. I would only bring them into the house if it was raining or cold outside otherwise. Let's have a show of hands, How many of you have worked on your BMW in the house? Don

Hey , not so fast. There is a disabled vet in OZ. (2 plates in his skull - had TWO tanks run over his head on two separate occasions - talk about bad luck) He talks a bit funny now. I knew him from the McMod list and met him when in OZ a few years ago. Anyway, he has a small flat with no garage but builds and rebuilds his bikes in his living room. He has a 45 WLA that has been campaigned in many forms - all done by hand in his living room. Oh, yea, BTW, he is a bachelor. Used to be some pics of his bike on the McMod site but I can't find them now.

Remember a neighbor in college who brought his bike up to the second floor of an apartment to work on through the winter. Was not a harley, could not afford in those days.

Amen when I lived in an aprtment on a busy street my then new Kawi 750 sat in the livingroom when not being ridden!
Hey had a bundle of old newspapers that made up half the distance from the sidewalk to the threshold and kept a couple of papers under it "just in case", after all it wasn't a Harley so didn't think it would mark its spot!
