I wasn't sure where to post this one, as it isn't really a bike mod or maintenance but is a mod that prevents maintenance.
I always reverse my bike in to my workshop and have to be careful that I don't hit the wall and damage the arse end. So I reversed my bike up to the wall then got a piece of wood coated one side with silicon and stuck it to the floor. Now I can reverse in and the wood stuck on the floor will stop my bike 2" short of the wall. A quick, easy and affective fail safe mod.

To be honest it has become a habit for various reasons:
The bike is never ridden as a rule for at least a week after the roads have been salted, so in winter it will sit up for long periods without being ridden which would mean a lot of dust sat on her. My bike lives in my workshop, not a garage so there is often a lot of dust of one kind or another in the air so if she wasn't covered up I would spend more time cleaning it than I ever would riding it!
About a year ago I noticed rust on my chrome wheels which really pissed me off but as it turned out it was simply down to metal filings/dust settling on the bike which was simply cleaned off and has never happened again since I keep her covered.

This thread reminds me of something my dad once told me,

his friend had a bubble car in the '60's, and there was some rule that you could drive one on a bike licence if you disabled reverse gear, and as his mate only had a bike licence, that's what he did,

He put a bit of wood on the garage floor so that when the front wheels were against the wood, he was in the garage fully and still had enough room to open the front opening door on the bubble car to get out, (garage was partitioned off for a workshop the other side of the middle wall or something)

Dad used to take great enjoyment from moving the bit of wood towards the back of the garage a couple of inches, then watching as his mate drove into the garage untill he touched the bit of wood, then tried to open the door to get out,

having the reverse gear disabled ment he was stuck untill someone heard him shouting and pulled the car back, lol.
