Well we went to the Museum Sat and the weather was great! I posted most of the pics from the ride on MSN and some videos from my $50 camera of us drag racing. Hope you like them! There are pics from our 4 wheeler rides too. I wish I had time to put more info on the pics.

That is one museum on the list. They all look pristine from here. Did she have to point at the Sportster like they are AMF bowling balls of oil, leak-leak. Thanks for the pre-visit.

Lol ! They had fancy little drip pans under a lot of the bikes. It really brought back memories seeing all the old bikes. I went a couple years back and they had a 500 Kawasaki with 5 cylinders. It wasn't there Fri so I ask about it and they said they still had it in their warehouse and it and all the bikes there would still run. I wondered where they kept the keys! haha
Did you see the Quicktime videos of my brother and me racing in Huntsville? He was on the black 07 and I was in the far lane on the green one. He won the first race and I won the 2nd and last race..

Did you see the Quicktime videos of my brother and me racing in Huntsville? Yeah, and she says, "... make bug happy." How did 'bug' get his name? Hold on, cowboy, we need 'Flo' to check his teeth?

haha, His sister named him.
Neither one of us ran a better time than I ran on my old Busa. And its because I need some practice on the 14. I hit the rev limiter in the second race in second gear. I've never did that on the Busa. Most of it was because it had got dark and I couldn't watch the tach and the road at the same time. No more night races for me.. :-)

Just searching around old titles that catch my interest. It's a 'you had to be there' story. The short is, yes I did make it to Barber museum. Went with a friend who knew a friend and we got to see the warehouse in the back. Literally, in that line of hundreds of bikes sitting on the floor, stacked on rafters to the ceiling, a few classic open race cars, was a basket weaved looking motorcycle in actual size. As fast as these stupid things popup in my head, I asked, 'did you buy this as a basket case?'

Motogp race - check.
WSB race - check.
Barber museum - check.
