You'll enjoy the museum *A LOT*!!!
Bring extra batteries for your camera, and film and flashbulbs if your camera uses them. There are more things to photograph than you can imagine. The bike you rode long ago ... it is there. The bike you wanted to buy ... it is there too. Remember when you studied an in-line four and wondered if some mad genius could take two of those engines and make a V-8? Well, he did, and that is there too! What if we retired the horse and put a bike between the wagon's poles? Yup, it is there. Why is that bike's left handlebar sticking up in the air? You will find out. And that thing, is it a motorcycle or a car? It is a matter of opinion.
Here is the cherry on the sundae: about 1.5 miles southwest of the museum is Bailey Road, joining Red Lake Road (the street the museum is on) to Cahaba Valley Road (aka 119 aka Montevallo Road).
Ride it! Bailey Road is the hilliest and twistiest piece of asphalt I have seen since Highway 250 in Virginia (which ties a bowline twice in four miles).
I rode it with a ridiculous load of luggage, and I managed fine, and I look a lot like my avatar. If I can do it, you can do it.
When I go back, I will make sure to ride Bailey Road again. If I have time for the museum, I will perhaps drop in. :rolleyes:
