    Ah yes…
    A reminder of the days when motorcycles were actually valued for much more than just a “personality accessory.”

    I have been to the “old museum” several times when Esta had it in the old Indian Building, Great Time, Great Bikes. I was out there 2 weekends ago. I was told it was next to the “Basketball Hall of Fame”, it’s not ! Nobody, ticket office, security guard in car, knew where it was ! I was pissed, drove home, I’ll do it another time. So, do your homework, checkout website, mapquest it ! I knew where old museum was, I knew where Basketball Hall of Fame was, don’t do what I did ! Plan ahead ! BJ
