    This scoot was designed to fold up like a suitcase and could be stowed on a small plane.

    Great pics from the museum -- I am so envious of your visit! I especially love the turn of the century motorcycles before there was an standard form factor and each manufacturer had their own thinking with where to place the gas tank, fork geometry, drive train, etc. Fantastic visual history of the past 100 years

    He's heading into an area with a lot of cool stuff. Too bad he needs to make time. The Lookout Mountain Parkway, Little River Canyon, and even the famous Hog Jowl Road are all ahead:D

    I think he's stopped to take a pic of the welcome to Georgia sign.
