Wheels Through Time

Wheels Through Time is 100% worth a detour! It's huge and beautifully done -- and kids get a side car ride on the way out!

I was very reluctant to pay $15 to see this but did it anyway and enjoyed the visit. ~350 motorcycles inside and set up with super cool and artistic displays. I enjoyed all the tools and old signs and shop sets.

Wheels Through Time Museum

Probably the world's most complete collection of motorcycles and various vehicles. Not only does it have some one-of-a-kind motorcycles, it has on display one of only four "Amazing Custom Motorcycle Waving Arms."

[Andy, 02/20/2016]

According to "Frank the Real Biker," who invented the arm, it was designed to prevent arm exhaustion in bikers who have to wave back at everyone who waves at them on the road.
