(Trip I Photos Are Here and Trip III Photos Are Here)

I was invited to visit the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Birmingham, AL. with a group of V-Strom riders on September 29, 2007.  Having been there a few months ago I jumped at the opportunity.  The Barber Museum is a fantastic place for motorcycle enthusiasts and I could spend a week there looking at the motorcycles.  Thanks for the invitation, Todd, I appreciate it and had a great time.

Below are approximately 124 photographs of the facility.  OK, 121 photographs of the facility.  The first three were taken at the I-24 rest stop outside of Chattanooga, TN. and are of the Nickajack reservoir.  Anyway, most of the cars and motorcycles have information cards located near them to provide information about the display and I have included photographs of those in most cases.  Some of them were somewhat difficult to photograph due to their proximity to the display (Please Do Not Touch Or Sit On The Displays!) or because of the overhead lights glaring on the plastic enclosures.  I apologize for some of them, but I think they are all readible.  The photos of the information card for a particular display immediately preceeds the photo of the display itself.  All images below are links to larger photographs.  You can click any of the photos to view a larger one.
