Topic: The Mike Barry Motorcycle Museum

The Mike Barry Motorcycle Museum on the Brampton to Gretna road near Carlisle is nice discovery - classic British and foreign classic road and racing motorcycles of all sizes, with a good range of memorabilia based around the proprietor's interests, restorations and classic racing career - see the IoM reps in the display cabinet and scattered photos, posters, models and upcoming projects. With a Classic Motorcycle restoration business in the adjacent shed with customer's bikes in preparation and a Gates and Railings business too, there's plenty of background patina. With a large garden with seating out back, and a kettle available the welcome mat is out for visitors whether individual or en-masse on motorcycles - a good 'run' destination. Entrance fee is £4 - phone no. 01228 675 117, post code CA6 4LY. Mike's a nice chap and gave me the full guided tour - but on a very wet day the camera got a bit steamed, hence the soft focus!

That chap seems to have cornered all the available Coventry Eagles in that museum.
