    Barber Motorsports Museum

    One of the largest collection of iconic and historic motorcycles in the nation.

    So, I spent a couple days in Birmingham Alabama. It was rainy .. what better than to look at bikes.

    Full gallery here: https://www.facebook.com/jeff.loh2/m...9796582&type=1

    Too bad the track day season is pretty much over, looked like a fun track with elevation and flowing corners. If you're ever out in Alabama you owe it to yourself to spend a couple days at the Barber Motorsports Museum.

    If I win the lottery, I kinda want my garage to look like this.

    I love that place!

    It's a very fun track, only a couple of blind turn entries.

    According to Guinness its THE largest, and they don't have enough room to show off the entire collection so it rotates. I also understand that most of those machines do actually run.

    The track itself is very challenging with no room for rest as the straights are fairly short but the turns are very flowy. You can get air off the curb in the museum turn if you dare. If you get a chance to ride it, its well worth the high price of admission. Trackdays there cost almost double what Lil Tally cost an hour away. The entire facility is gorgeous and very well manicured.
    The whir of gear driven cams makes me giddy.

    The second day I was there, they were having some sort of Porsche driving experience. Watching cars go around is less exciting than watching riders go knee down round a track.
