I think it is a real dumb idea to have a busa in a bedroom! Would agree if it was some age old vintage bike. That said, the bedroom looks fabulous

The two and four wheeled beauties were designed to thrill on the road and be seen on it, and when it comes to the bedroom, I'd rather not check out a parked bike...

Agreed but, Busa in a bedroom seems more like a statement:
"You think you are cool riding one ? I keep such things in my bedroom"
I'm not sure what the guy has in his bathroom.

This bike used to be in the livingroom of an person I know in the US. This led to a new BMW club for people with a BMW single in their livingroom. Sadly it now colects dust. Mind you neither the owner nor his wife are to blame. Because he only needs to make a mount and lift it up onto the wall directly above the sofa.
I've used to know of a Parsi guy in Bombay who kept his BMW in his bedroom. Later on heard that his wife divorced him. So beware!!!

I showed this thread to my manager, and he responded by saying that there nothing great about all this. These guys are poor who cannot afford garages and hence have to literally live with their vehicles.

The one parked at Canon store is because they conduct a lot of photography workshops there and they use the bike as an object.

One of the reasons to park these bikes at home is maybe to avoid the DRI and make sure the bike is safe as well.

Parking a bike inside the house? Sounds like a silly idea to me.

For an enthusiast, yes, very silly.
For an enthusiast in some other domain: Style, Status, etc..

I doubt that, A person having a living room like that can afford an official busa or can easily pay the duty to the dri

cheers..

Come on! that is the costliest garage he can get; cozy and safe for his bike.

Have been a house in Bangy; the owner is a well known guy in the biking scenario. He had few vintage bikes/scooter inside his house and even a side car; all in pristine condition.
