National Motorcycle Museum — MidWeek Blues — Jim's motorscooter
We didn't pay to go in. Rather we looked around through the 'teaser' windows, one of which is shown here, and then to the gift shop.
We ended up not spending any money at all there. The rest rooms were free which is a good thing for travelers. At the other end of the paved lot was a McDonald's where we did spend some money.
My driving license has a motorcycle endorsement. I renewed it for another six years in October too. The endorsement was an extra $2.00 but it will save me money and headaches if and when I get another bike. My license is good for another six years. I can renew once more with just an eye exam. After that it will be harder for me due to my age. I will be 93 on that birthday.
The pictures below (click on any for a larger size) are also from the museum except for the one on the lower right. It shows three of my toy cars and my toy Vespa motorscooter. If I had not have had that one I would have bought one of the cute little ones, shown in the upper right, from the gift shop. Next time I may buy one anyway.
It did get it moved to New Hampshire by my civilian employer. The movers said I should take it and that they would call it a lawn mower so there would not be any problems. Up there it had to sit under a canvas most of the winter time. Snow and ice are pretty treacherous for two wheelers.
This accident story is from a previous post, January 31, 2009:
One of the worst woman drivers I have ever known lived in El Paso. She ran a stop sign right in front of my Vespa motor scooter. I was riding it down a main thorough-fare, she was on a side street.
Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)
I clicked the Jim's Little Blog link on quilly's Quintessentially Quilly blog.
So if I want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, I go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo picture on the right. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions.
Just do what you did. Or do less?
Maybe I might try that.
Interesting museum. I love that first motorcycle photo - so patriotic. How ever did you end up in TX from NH? Talk about opposite ends of the earth...or country rather.
Hope says you better be careful out there :)
Others drivers are so careless over motorcyclists.
I am going to make sure I do all of the things on my list now so I can beat you, Jim.
And you never bore me.
The needs of these wounded warriors and the estimated 300,000 (RAND 2007) veterans battling post-traumatic stress disorder and depression will require specialized attention for years to come.
We provide services and programs that ease the burden of the wounded and their families, aid in the recovery process, and smooth their transition back to civilian life.
