How Large Is A Motorcycle Garage Mat & What Products Work Best?

By Paige Cerulli Created: January, 2022

Whether you have a Suzuki, Harley, Victory, Honda, or Indian motorcycle, you’ll need an appropriate space in your garage to maintain and work on your bike. With a quality motorcycle garage mat, you can safely work on your bike without damaging your garage floor.

Reasons to Use a Motorcycle Garage Mat

A motorcycle floor mat serves multiple important purposes. Also called a motorcycle parking pad, this mat helps to protect your existing garage floor.

By adding a mat, you’ll be keeping potentially damaging substances, like fluids and oils, from coming into contact with the floor. This can also make for easier cleanup after a spill.

The mat also helps to contain the dirt and debris that your bike might track in. You can just wipe down the mat, rather than having to wash or sweep your entire garage floor.

Mats also enhance the look of your garage, creating an ideal space for parking or displaying your bike. Choosing a color that complements your bike can transform your garage into a mini showroom, so you can showcase your bike in the best light possible.

How to Size Your Motorcycle Garage Mat

A mat will only be effective if it’s the right size for your bike. That size can vary depending on your motorcycle and the types of maintenance that you typically perform, but common mat sizes include 3x8, 4x8, 5x8, and 5x10 feet.

Keep in mind that, rather than buying a mat that’s already designed, you can use tile kits to custom-create a mat to the dimensions that you need. When you use tiles, you can ensure that the mat is large enough for your needs, and many tiles can also be cut so you can fit them around objects like support beams or workbenches.

If you use tiles to create your mat, you can add on tiles and make that mat larger in the future as needed. You won’t have to buy another mat, and can customize it to your changing space needs.
