Huge Motorcyce Museum in Birmingham

I'm stuck in Birmingham til tomorrow (here for my brother's AF commissioning) so me and my dad decided to hit up this motorcycle museum and was pretty freaking cool. There's a track here too but nobody was on it.

Anyone been here?

Your at prime motorcycle history museum, my friend. A lot of great bikes there as well as the track . Barber is a must see place on the AMA season.

You've "Stumbled" onto a little slice of motorcycling heaven known as "Barber Motorsports Park".

I've done a couple of track days there as well as attended two AMA races - "GO Ben Spies"

The museum is awesome too.
