Just cool bikes, nothing but cool bikes

OK not KLR's but I saw some cool bike today at the museum.
















I'm off to Springfield Mass. to check out a museum that has lots of Indians tomorrow.

Nice photos of some cool bikes. So, after seeing the Harley, how many KLR riders are now going to start experimenting with attaching ammo boxes to their front forks and fenders?

Thanks for taking and posting the photos.

If you guys are ever in the Birmingham, AL area, a MUST stop is the Barber Motorsports Museum.. Mostly bikes, but some race cars.. The cool thing is that the bikes are all supported by a couple wires, so you can get as close to them as you want..

Double A and I spent a day there a couple years ago.. Fantastic place!!!

Ha, I didnt even think about that, or looking up anybody.

Those bikes are located at the New England Aviation Museum at Bradley Airport.
Really nice museum, great collection of airplanes, worth checking out if you are into aviation..

Im working on the uploads from the Springfield History Museum which has the Indian Motorcycle collection. Look for a new thread dedicated to these..

You want to see some cool stuff…. Directly across the street from the air museum is the National Airport fire fighter training facility. They have a full size mock 737 that they load up with jet fuel and light on fire…… Its unbelievable.
