The American Motorcycle Association Hall of Fame just outside Columbus, OH: it is more about motorcycling than motorcycles, although they had 100 or so with a nice historical overview and even a lovely art presentation. The AMA has a powerful lobbying group in DC. Thanks to them we still have motorcycles on the road.

CC1 composite Another treat was found at my destination at Brother Ted and wife Carol. Carol has a lovely fairy garden; she could charge admission. Thanks to them I had a great dinner and an easy night after 500 miles (too many). Ted was also a great help installing a blue tooth transmitter and receiver in my helmet that “talks” wirelessly with my GPS and iPhone. Back in day, I used a map and magnetic compass. I will let you know if all this fancy technology improves the ride.
