Dodging the Roadkill: Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyLeeds, AL – Since I began this journey, I’ve been amazed at some of the people and places I’ve discovered along the way.  When a college buddy told me about the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum, I was intrigued.  After doing some research, I discovered that this place is probably as close to “heaven on earth” that a biker can experience. 

The Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum is the masterpiece of George W. Barber, a businessman, racer and philanthropist.  His vision to build the world’s best and largest motorcycle collection is what stands before us in Birmingham Alabama.  In fact, the Guinness Book of World Records has certified the museum as the world’s largest motorcycle collection.

Dodging the Roadkill: Barber Motorsports Park – First Impression

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyLeeds, AL – I had heard nothing but great things about this place when I announced I was going to visit.  Even the bikers I met along the way down I-65 told me I was in for a treat.

They were right.

I cruised down to Birmingham this afternoon and after fighting the wind and several road projects, I pulled into the Barber Motorsports Park.  It is a sprawling facility, cut out of the Alabama countryside.  

It’s the home of the worlds largest motorcycle museum, which I plan to visit tomorrow, but today, I went to the race track.
