Took a day ride to Warm Springs, GA famous for Franklin D. Roselvelt's Little White House and the FDR State Park. The is a west central Georgia Motorcycle destination point with the park and hills around Pine Mountain. In Warm Springs is the Motorcycle Museum and the Art in Motion museusm Entrance to both is a total of $10 for a year. The museums are packed with an assortment of vintage motorcycles and a few scooters plus many more items. At Art in Motion you can pose for pictures on vintage bikes in front of a painted background.

Some pictures:

Cushman. Seems like the gas tank cancels the advantage of the full width floor board.

Drive on a Yale 4P. Pushing the lever put tension on the belt to transmit power. Started on the center stand by pedaling.

I wanted to stop there Friday or Monday, but the weather was bad both days when I passed through. Looks like fun!

You'll have to come back. There is some nice riding in the area. The state park has a great campground on a lake. Unfortunately Calloway Gardens will not allow motorcycles on the property. One more place the folks with loud pipes have generated a ban for all of us.
Scooting the Ozarks is a scooter rally held in Eureka Springs, Arkansas offering riders scenic twisty rides, poker run, and more.   Vespa Wasp Pin Badges   Cool Ass scooter seat cover
