    Since we're in regionals....

    Anyone know what happened to that bike museum that used to be tucked away unseen just north of downtown Denver?

    The guy who owned it passed away, and his children split up his collection. Most of it was taken out of state. He had some amazing bikes.

    My question also. I used to go there once a year. And it looks like Forney museum is still open.

    I grew up in that area, they have such a amazing collection of cars and bikes, Packard's where awesome cars for the day. Too bad the area is so depressed anymore, not a lot of reason to visit.
