List of Motorcycle Museums of the world

I'm collecting a list of your favorite motorcycle museums from around the world. I'll keep them in a blog so that next time you're planning your trip you can check through the listings for the nearest museum.

http://motorcyclemuseums.blogspot.com

If you've visited the museum tell me about your experience and if you have pictures include those. If you post pictures please let me know if I can use them in the blog. Thanks!

I've added two museums so far... and not from the same country so technically they are from "the world".

The national motorcycle museum in Coventry, England claims to be the biggest in the world http://www.nationalmotorcyclemuseum.co.uk/museum/

The Sammy Miller museum in Hampshire England is also fairly large http://sammymiller.co.uk/

The London motorcycle museum, well the name speaks for itself http://www.london-motorcycle-museum.org/welcome.html

The York motorcycle museum http://www.cravencollection.co.uk/

Here is a list of 30 odd museums in the UK which have at least some motorcycles http://www.enginecycle.co.uk/motorcy...eums-directory

"Built to ride, not to hide" or "built to go, not to show". Take your pick. Mmm, the last one may not be the correct choice seeing as it's a museum

Anyway, as they are British bikes in their own country, they are not leaking oil! No, they are marking their territory

I haven't been since they had the fire but it was very good before then. I may have to pay it another visit one day.
