Has anyone actually tried to sleep with their bike?

Ok hear me out...

I don't mean the "ol'heave'ho" I just mean have you been in a situation where you have had to sleep next to your bike?

If so, do share?

    He probably began by idly wondering if anyone had slept with his bike too. A warning for the curious.

    One of mine was on top of the wardrobe whilst the other was in the living room. On top of the wardrobe was the only suitable space to store a 2nd bike in my flat.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    I've, on occasion, had 2 bikes in the bedroom at the same time. The Felt (Felicity) and Delta.

    Usually when people are staying over and said bicycles have to move out of one of the other bedrooms, or the diningroom, or the hall........ :D

    Well it's cold outside, they wouldn't like it in the garage (The bikes that is, but then I guess the guests wouldn't like it either)

    Yes, did a 1,000 km/.600 mile ride across Pacific N.West, USA/Canada. in 1995.
    Had to put me, bike and all my kit into borrowed 2 man dome tent.

    Once the wheels are off, bike upside-down, and it was fine.
    Occasionally used motels. No joking, felt scarier, some like the Bates Motel in "Psycho!"

    Worst night- Radium Hot Springs, BC. Campsite backs onto main USA/Canada rail line.
    Their trains have over 100 trucks behind! Not good all night long. Needed my beauty sleep.

    Best morning - Radium Hot Springs, wild birds/rodents coming to feed out of your hand.

    Best evening - Radium Hot Springs, swimming in hot-thermal swimming pool, open-air,
    watching the stars, mountains silhouetted by the moon, and "FIT" German girl in pink and when wet, see-through swim suit.
    Also met Otto, German site handy-man/Cowboy. Just like the one out of Malcom in the Middle.

    I'm lost as to how that's a crime - unless he did something deliberately to those cleaners it's his private room and they just caught him enjoying himself. If he had music on, didn't hear them and was just having a quick one under the duvet surely that's not a criminal offence :shock:

    He wasn't under the duvet, the bike wouldn't fit.... only problem might have been is if the bike was fairly newish, I mean maybe it wasn't 16 years old, and he had the saddle off, maybe greasing the chain, or worse still, giving the rear derillier a seeing to.....

    The mind really boggles.

    But seriously, he was locked in his own room when the cleaners entered, so what is the problem?

    Was a big news item at the time. Some things just stick in your mind, for some inexplicable reason. Google does the rest...

    Holkham Beach in Norfolk - I used to ride my motorbike up there from Cambridge on summer weekends and sleep next to my motorbike......does that count?
