Well for starters that big green thing is taking up way to much room. I'll come haul it away for free.

The best improvement I did to my garage was adding heat. In about an hour the garage was warm enough to work in with just a t-shirt. No more numb hands from working in the cold.
I also have an adjustable mechanics stool
and lots of lights, (around 1500 watts of fluorescent shop lights)

Tile the floor with VCT. Super easy, durable, looks great

May I suggest Pinterest for ideas?

One I'm planning on adding is a recessed bike lift.

remove bottom shelf of the metal shelf so generator and other large things can more easly be stored under it, and peg board.... loads and loads of peg board...

also take 3" pvc pipe and cut it at a bit at an angle and it make great loops for mounting to the wall or ceiling for storing garden tools, fishing poles , or any of that kinda crap,and get your ladders up on some hooks (cant find a pic of the work area where all the tools and work table area is)

A Motorcycle dolly that gos under the center-stand, makes it easy to move the bike around, and out of the way. If you have limited space.

Mirrors on the ceiling, some black light posters...

Hang those bikes up from the ceiling or the wall with some "J" hooks.

As some Others said ditch the lower shelf on the workbench get the tool box and genny underneath it And hang the ladder on the wall hang the bikes From the ceiling. But it looks pretty functional as is.

I made my garage 2 cars wide and 2 cars deep. I also put in a floor drain and a heater so that I can wash my cars and bikes inside in the winter.

With all due respect to Mudslinger, I almost agree with this, until I remembered how many times Iíve scalped myself... I like to keep the bicycles away toward the wall as much as possible. Wall-mount works for me. I say this, but my MTB still hangs from the rafter, but closer to the wall now.

I agree. Mine is mounted to the wall with "J" hooks. I was just throwing out different options.(picture is not my place).
