Shed Floor Covering

Hello All,

        I've been lurking for a while, finally getting around to posting.  

        We've been building a small (10x10) shed this summer.  Its almost done
now and I need to figure out what kind of covering to use for the floor.
The floor surface is 3/4" plywood.

  The main purpose of the shed is for storing motorcycles, so it needs to 
be something that will be okay with tires.  The only covering I found at
Home Depot which was safe for tires was Behr garage floor paint.  Of course
this is only meant to got on a concrete floor (and specifically says not to
apply to wood).  The deck coatings are good for wood but say not to leave
in contact with tires.  Also, the floor should be oil resistant so the wood
doesn't soak up any oil from the motorcycles.

        I've heard of some two-part epoxy kit, but haven't been able to find
out anything about it (like a name).

        Any suggestions would be appreciated.  TIA.

P.S. If you want to see an "in-progess" for the shed you can check the
following link.  The walls are now up and the the only major construction
is to build the ramp/door.

        For a little more background, this shed is mostly post-consumer
recycling.  We tore down an old shed last fall and used the lumber for the
framing of my new shed.  The floor and wall surfaces are fresh.
