Compared to the floorspace given over to four wheelers the motorcycle hall at the Haynes Museum is modest in size but holds some gems. A visit to the Museum is well recommended: the four wheeler collection is very impressive and two wheeler fans have the speedway collection and the British Motor Scooter collection to amble around as well as the motorcycle hall. Below a few pictures from my after hours wander around the Museum on the night of the Exeter Trial.

|That cut away A7 again.|
