A few months ago I had the opportunity to visit the Barber Vintage Motorcycle Museum in conjuncture with the 2011 Suzuki GSX-R600 First Ride and 2011 Suzuki GSX-R750 First Ride reports at Barber Motorsports Park. In between flogging the bikes on track we were able to peruse the museum and check out some of the 1200-plus motorcycles on display. If you’re even a little into bikes than you simply must visit this museum. From 1900s-era Harley-Davidsons to one-off MV Agusta race machinery from literally every era the collection is astounding. Here are some of my favorite bikes on display. Make sure to check out the photo gallery for even more images.
