I've used the Bike Barn www.thebikebarn.net for a couple of years and 
then switched to the Cycleshell http://www.cycleshell.com/. The Bike 
Barn is a quasi permanent structure without a floor and I have a tiny 
house with a parking pad in front. Of necessity the Bike Barn was 
broadside to the prevailing winds and and as a result there was some 
snow drifting inside. I needed to take it down each spring just to 
create some room in front and that was a pita. I gave it to my riding 
buddy who has used it for his ST1100 for the past two years. It's quite 
roomy and sturdy. The Cycleshell is much easier for me to use, it 
collapses for storage and has a floor. Tighter fit than the BB (had to 
take my Jessebags off. I found both to be useful products for the 
garageless. You can contact me off list if you want more details.
