This is the newest and largest motorcycle museum on the East Coast. It's a 150,000-square-foot facility inside a 200-year-old textile mill.

The museum displays the personal collection of Kenny "Kaplan America" Kaplan. It includes a 1937 BMW with an engine so powerful that it once set its rider's leg on fire.
