While I was out of town over the holidays visiting family, I took some time to head over to Newburgh NY and check out the relatively new Motorcylepedia museum that opened up there. I gotta admit, this place is kind of amazing.
There is currently a Vintage Japanese bike exhibit that should be up through next summer that is pretty good. They also have a room full of Indian motorcycles (one from every year they made them from 1901-the ’50’s) as well as some badass choppers and tons of pre-WWII makes etc. that I had never heard of. I could have easily spent a full day there just trying to take it all in.
My camera battery shit out on me not long after I got there so I didn’t get anywhere near as many pics as I would have liked though.
If you find yourself out near Newburgh sometime. Do yourself a favor and stop in and check this place out. Or better yet, spring camping trip anyone?

Video about riding a cycle around the world
Def watch this video. It’s about a group of friends that did a full loop around the world for a year. I like the part in the video when he talks about; all you need to do is get an old cheap bike and leave in the clothes you have on.
Sweet pics, that Yammy racer is crazy badass.
Awesome pics! Yeah, I need a TZ250 before I die.
Is that the place that Billy Joel opened?
I’m pretty sure the Billy Joel museum is on Long Island. This place is about an hour or so north of NYC.
Great pics, thanks! I’ll have to make a trip up there!
Yes, Billy Joel’s place is in Oyster Bay, Long Island.
