Neither had I, until a YT video randomly popped up about securing them to the wall and I thought... is that really necessary?We have had those for many years. Never even thought about strapping them down. If the base is solid and level then the but will go nowhere. Even a few inches in the bottom will be heavy enough to hold it in place - think how heavy a bucket of water is.
Missed the bikes. What's the problem?As long as they don't freeze
When we lived in France, I had to change the tank for the heating oil. I thought I could use the old one to store water from the barn roof. I made a base in the barn, connected it all up and it filled very quickly, all 1500 litres.
This is the new oil tank and the base for the old one

A couple of years pass and we have a very cold winter.
I am outside when i hear a loud bang in the barn. I go and have a look and see this.

A 1500kg ice cube has decided to fall over and smash most of our garden furniture. The base of the tank curved as the water froze. It took about 2 weeks to thaw and drain away. Surprisingly there was only a tiny crack near the top, so I moved it outside, buried about a third, so it would not fall over again. (I seem to remember the temperature tha previous night was something like -15 deg C)
