MOTORCYCLE SHOWS AND MOTORCYCLE MUSEUMS: I simply cannot get enough of these places, so much to see and discuss the various advantages and disadvantages of so many machines and accessories.

Please click on the heading or associated image to be taken to the dedicated page/s covering the event.....

HONDA HALL, MOTEGI - RACE BIKES:

The Twin Ring racing circuit at Motegi includes a somewhat plain looking building called the 'Honda Collection Hall'. The contents, truly magnificent, the exhibits cover the full spectrum of Honda's achievements in motorcycle racing.

The 'clickable image' is a close up of the magnificent Honda Six DOHC race engine, circa 1964~1967.  Many variants of the engine are exhibited both within motorcycles and pedestal mounted.

HONDA HALL, MOTEGI - PROD'. BIKES:

The Twin Ring racing circuit at Motegi includes a somewhat plain looking building called the 'Honda Collection Hall'. The contents, truly magnificent, the exhibits cover the full spectrum of Honda's production motorcycles.

The 'clickable image' is a close up of the magnificent Honda CB750K0 engine, truly the best motorcycle ever made.

U.K. MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM, ENGLAND:

Wow, I thought I had viewed a few Museums until I went to the United Kingdom National Motorcycle Museum, staggering!

The 'clickable image' is a close up of the Brough Superior COPPERKNOB.

THE SAMMY MILLER MUSEUM, ENGLAND:

The Sammy Miller Museum at New Milton, Hampshire, England.

The 'clickable image' is a close up of the 1939 AJS V-Four, supercharged and water cooled motorcycle.

THE BEAULIEU BIKE MUSEUM, ENGLAND:

Located on Lord Montagu's Beaulieu Estate, the Motorcycle displays form part of the overall Beaulieu Museum. The Museum hosts a wide range of mainly British Motorcycles.

The 'clickable image' is a 1961 Honda RC162 250cc, four cylinder race bike.

LONDON BIKE MUSEUM, ENGLAND:

The Museum is rather small and the facilities definitely need an injection of capital. Nevertheless there were some interesting exhibits in particular early incarnations of the Triumph Trident T150V and suspect attempts at massaging an SOHC configuration onto the Meriden Triumph and BSA Triples of the era.

The 'clickable image' is a close up of the Triumph Trident T150V (P1) Prototype engine.

A.R.E. CLASSIC BIKE COLLECTION, IOM:

Located most appropriately at Kirk Michael in the Isle of Man, the A.R.E. Classic Bike Collection is located on a property accessible directly off the TT Course

The 'clickable image' is a close up of a Douglas Mark 5, 350cc Twin.

SOLVANG MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM, USA:

Located northwest of Santa Barbara, California, the Solvang Vintage Motorcycle Museum is a privately owned museum offering a select collection of motorcycles, both original and high quality replicas.

The 'clickable image' is a close up of the Yale V-Twin.

SAN DIEGO BIKE MUSEUM, USA:

Forming part of the overall 'San Diego Auto Museum', I have collated the Motorcycle display records here. The museum has an excellent display of motorcycles with a considerable leaning toward the Indian motorcycle brand.

The 'clickable image' is a close up of the 1914 Indian C-3 Big Twin Sidecar Outfit engine.

PETERSEN BIKE MUSEUM, LA, USA:

Forming part of the overall 'Petersen Auto Museum', the museum is located in the city of Los Angeles. Most of the displays are car orientated, however there are some interesting and some 'unusual' motorcycles on display.

The 'clickable image' is a 1907 Indian V-Twin.

THE NATIONAL 'MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM':

The National Motorcycle Museum is located at Nabiac on the New South Wales North Coast, how does eight hundred plus Motorcycles on display sound, not including the monster machine parked outside!!

The 'clickable image' is of the main entrance to the Museum.

THE NATIONAL 'MOTOR RACING MUSEUM':

Location, Location, Location... at the bottom of Conrod Straight in Bathurst, New South Wales. The Museum has very high quality exhibits of Motorcycles and Cars. Some of the Motorcycles bring back huge memories to me, in particular machines ridden by Ron Toombs, Gregg Hansford and Wayne Gardner!!

The 'clickable image' is a close up of the venerable 'Number 63', as campaigned by Ron Toombs.

 

VINTAGE JAPANESE MOTORCYCLE CLUB:

The Australian Chapter of the VJMC holds a wide range of rides and displays of some of the great Japanese Motorcycles of the last century, tremendous equipment from a great era of motorcycling.

The 'clickable image' is the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club flag.

THE CLUB LAVERDA CONCOURS:

An annual Motorcycle Concours d'Elegance the Club Laverda Concours was initially held in the heart of Brisbane, under the Storey Bridge. From 2011 onward the expanding level of entries and spectator numbers necessitated a move to the Cleveland Showgrounds on the Bayside, southeast of Brisbane.

The 'clickable image' is the Club Laverda Qld. Inc. logo.

PHIL IRVING CONCOURS - 2012:

The 30th Anniversary Phil Irving Concours was held at Yeronga, Brisbane. A wide range of Classes facing the Judges included Veteran, Vintage, Post Vintage, Post War, Historic, Competition, Military and Sidecar divisions. The Veteran Class had very few entries, however the quality and finish of the exhibits was magnificent.

The 'clickable image' depicts a Veteran Class - 1913 Sunbeam 350cc headlight.

AUSTRALIAN MOTORCYCLE SHOWS:

No cars needed, dedicated Motorcycle only Shows are becoming the norm now throughout Australia.

The 'clickable image' is a cutaway engine display.

I LOVE NEW TECHNOLOGY, TABLETS, LAPTOPS, DIGITAL CAMERAS, MOBILE PHONES/WIRELESS BROADBAND, GPS, ETC.  ALL SO COOL AND 'PORTABLE'......
