Got together for a good ride today with the RC I ride with. It was our 1st ride of the year and although conditions were less than optimal, 45* with occasional rain, the 4 regulars showed up as always. After stopping in Salina for lunch we went to the Kansas Motorcycle Museum in Marquette, Kansas. Marquette is a tiny town of about 580 people, for a town of this size it's pretty amazing that the museum is there. The museum was started in 03 as a tribute to Stan Engdahl a local racing legend. He was a 5 time national champion aboard his custom built Harley Davidson. His career spanned 6 decades from the 1940's to the 1990's and over 600 of his trophies are on display. Unfortunately, Stan passed away in 07 but his wife continues to be the curator of the museum. There are over 100 vintage and rare motorcycles of all makes on display along with race memorabilia. Onto the pics! Sorry for the quality, but all I had with me was my phone.

If you're ever in the area, this is one stop not to miss. Other than the weather, I couldn't have asked for a better day, good friends, good food, and great miles, all 300 of 'em!!
