Garage Insulation

I'm considering not insulating the garage floor. There is about a 1.5" transition from the ramp to the floor, If I add the same insulation as the front it would add another 1.5" and be 3" lip to bump over with the bikes. The finished floor will be a poly diamond plate mat glued down. I'll still do the walls and ceiling,but not the floor.
Any thoughts I should be concerned with??

I think it would be fine to not insulate the floor there. Probably better. Less material, less issues if you get a leak in your bike there.

The garage/workshop in the back of our bus will have the original flooring and walls. We did insulate and install wood on the entire roof just because it flowed better. I figure when we are at the races, we'll have the rear door or wheelchair lift open so extra insulation won't do much good. We will insulate the wall between this space and the living quarters well, though.

Noise - no, its a garage. Not a problem as long as there's good acoustic insulation between the garage and living space.
Condensation on the cold floor surface? - not a problem if well ventilated which you'd want with gasoline in there anyway. You'd want good air sealing between the garage and living space.
I think I'd worry more about traction, especially if the floor was wet, and wonder if diamond plate is good for that. An epoxy garage floor coating might work well.

Not aluminum diamond plate, diamond plate patterned poly rubber mat. Not concerned about noise back there. Pocket door separating the garage, so sealing might be an issue.
