...started at 4:30am, woke up, ate breakfast, loaded last minute stuff in the pickup truck and left at a quarter to 6. The truck bed was loaded with used tools for sale at the swap meet and behind on the trailer is the '67 Interceptor for display. The morning fog lifting while crossing the former potato fields just north of Montezuma Wildlife Preserve

Stopped for a cup of coffee and pulled into my spot less than two hours later. The guy on my left had this sharp B50...

After I unloaded the bike and displayed the tools on the bike trailer I went for look around. This wild looking front wheel...

I was very pleased that I got to park the Interceptor almost directly in front of the museum entrance, next to Bob Harris' two American Eagles (Laverdas)

Hope this will not get anyone upset but Tony has put a 4 stroke Honda in this AJS - very nice work

The museum brought some Indians out in the sunshine including an inline four behind the other two.

Really stunning XS Yamaha - the guys were working on the BMW which appeared to have a gas leak.

The view of the field from truck/trailer. Bob stuck me over here behind the rock - but I did well anyway. Paid for the spot and the gas to get there and got to add some cash to my Project 39-1/2 fund.

On the way home a shot of the house with tree coming through the roof. The house does not look lived in. Maybe he couldn't afford to move the treee when he built the house? Or is it a case of "When house plants get out of control!".
