I've always thought that a cup should (somehow) be designed which would enable a person to be lying down in bed and drink a hot beverage without scalding him/herself.
In my mind's eye, it would slightly resemble a bed pan/urinal thingy , a bit like this
After the soaking I got tonight, I might design a very wide plastic tape measure type of thing - curved in cross section. It could be pulled out to the appropriate length, stand your bike in this 'guttering', and all the drips would be caught...thereby protecting your Vladkrapt laminate floor.
I'd call it 'Sdroflah'
Of course, a garage is cool...
