I was reading the topic about the Evel Knievel museum, and it got me thinking about searching out some other motorcycle museums. Maybe I could string together a trip that hits several of them, like some baseball fans like to do with ballparks.

I of course know about the big ones, like the AMA Motorcycle Museum in Ohio, and The Barber in Alabama. And the Harley-Davidson Museum is just up the road from me. I've also heard the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles has a good motorcycle collection. Any other must-sees?

Other than the HD, the only other MC museum I've visited is the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, IA. It was a nice day trip for me, and had a good selection of bikes from all eras. They also have a great board track display that gives a real appreciation for how crazy those tracks were in their day.

Any other suggestions?

I can't personally vouch for either of these, they're on the wrong side of the continent for me. But if your road trip crosses the Canadian border, I hear good things about:

Dreamcycle motorcycle museum gift shop and cafe in Sorrento British Columbia owner Mark Lane

Been to Dreamcycle museum in Sorrento, quirky little spot - closed on Tuesday. Every bike on exhibit runs, and has a story - you can rent a voice recording that describes the bike and its history. He has several in the back shop he is working on. The museum is owned and operated by the owner of all the bikes.

The bad thing about Barber is you go into sensory overload and I was there before the addition was completed. Literally 1000's of bikes on display.

The Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum is the MOST AMAZING MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM ON EARTH!!!!!!!!!! Plan on at least 2 days to see it all.

Here's a qick look inside. These may look like model bikes (below) but they're all The Real Deal

I am backing you up and was just there this weekend for the last Moto America race of the season. It is the best motorcycle visual you could imagine of dreaming up. It is surreal.
