Too late now, but the AMA museum and Iron Pony are worth stopping at.

Actually... not too late. I am back from dinner. Other guys I am here with didnt want to do anything. some excuse about having to be to the plant at 5:30.

I am not sure what time I am leaviing the plant tomorrow... but, I will have to see if I can stop at one of those places and still make it home in time to watch the game.

We'll see how much time I have as to if I can hit them both or not. I dont think so.

Gota make it home in time for the World Series.

If I had to pick one or the other, I'd go to the museum. However, if time is a factor(you need at least an hour and a half to two hours for the AMA)
you can get in and out of Iron Pony quicker and they have some killer closeout deals.

I think I am going to hit up Iron Pony. Since its the kind of place you can go back to multiple times.

Because I know on the next trip I take with my brother that if we go by the museum... we will stop for sure. And I am just the kind of person... seen it once... I probably wont go back.

Iron Pony it is.


Thanks for reminding me that I am this close. Been meaning to go there the past couple years.

Rotate Exhibits

At at the Motorcycle Museum they rotate the exhibits. Right now they have the History of Motorcross.

Just like at most museums (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and DIA). So if you go back at different times it will still have some new things to look at.

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

If its a penny for your thoughts and you are putting in your two cents, hey someone's making a penny.

It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

I ended up leaving the plant later than expected... so I didn't have much time.
I went to Iron Pony. Nice place and some good deals, but I didn't buy anything. If I found a killer deal, I would have got it though. I just don't NEED anything right now.
