The Skip Barber Motorcycle Museum is located in Birmingham, Alabama and is arguably the world's best, biggest, containing the most extensive collection of motorcycles from around the world.

The collection belongs to an ex-racecar driver of considerable fame, Skip Barber. His family owned a successful dairy business, of which he didn't want any part. He wanted to have the best car museum in the world but he quickly discovered that he didn't possess enough wealth for that endeavor. A friend of his talked him into the current venture and he never looked back.

Connected to the museum is an active car- and motorcycle-racing facility. The back of the glass-covered museum building look over part of the track and the day we were visiting the local Porsche club's members were having a blast on the track. It sort of reminds me of the Limerock racetrack in Connecticut, as spectators often sit on the sides of hills, picnicking and observing the race. I would love to do that some day.

Skip Barber is in his eighties now but he can still be caught in the museum from time to time, which he visits in cognito.
