    Where is the Museum of retro motorcycles?

    Hi guys ! A question. Where is the Museum of retro motorcycles? I wanna go.
    I was recently in Germany and got into the Museum of BMW, it impressed me and inspired me to visit new places.

    I temporarily moved to Italy, and now I want to come to the USA for a while. And I would like to visit such a place there.
    Preferably in LA.
    Thanks for your feedback!

    Alabama - the Barber Motorsports Museum. Over 1,000 motorcycles, all brands. Some were part of the Guggenheim Art of the Motorcycle exhibit.

    Didn't know about this Museum, thanks.
    Have you been there yourself? I looked at the photos of their exhibits on the Internet, it looks cool. I wonder how live.)

    Wheels of Time! Maggie Valley North Carolina. Not at all uncommon for them to start up some of the bikes. Simply amazing as some are a century old!

    I was there a few years back and Dale, the owner, cranked up (as in "kick-started") an old v-twin INSIDE the building, asked everyone to stand back, and he did a burn-out in the aisle of the museum exhibit! Smoke everywhere, kids screaming and jumping up and down it was awesome! Then later that day, he cranked a vintage sidecar rig and took visitors for a spin around the museum grounds.

    Wheels of Time is my favorite motorcycle museum ever!

    Yes, I have been there. It is a better experience than any video can try to illustrate. You should plan to spend half a day there and even more if you want to take photos to capture it. It is wonderful.

    Been there multiple times, and it isn't far from the Dragon.

    Just a note of correction: we (myself included) are all calling it the Wheels OF Time museum, when the actual name is Wheels THROUGH Time. Probably not important since it is easy to find, both on the internet and on the road.

    2 others to consider are the AMA museum in Pickerington Ohio, and the National Motorcycle Museum in Animosa Iowa.
