    Be sure to visit the Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Vally, NC. Maggie Valley is about 15 miles north of Cherokee, NC and this museum, even though it is dedicated to American made bikes, will simply blow you away. The owner Dale and all his staff were super friendly. They have over 300 bikes, most of them predating 1950, with 98% of them running. Get there early and ask for Scott, one of the many volunteers that staff the place. He will probably give you a personal guided tour that will take about two to three hours. The museum is moving to Arizona this winter so see it soon.

    Dale likes BMW guys…I know because I was passing through there this last Sunday and stopped to look through. Almost four hours later as I was getting ready to leave I thanked him for having a great place and I told him this topped my day. He told me to wait a couple of minutes and he would really cap it off. Out he comes on a 1942 Harley XA (copied from the wartime Beemers) and told me to ride it around the parking lot. I did a few loops around on this once-in-a-lifetime museum piece because he said he knew I would appreciate the layout of the bike. It seems you could see some of the Harley guys gritting their teeth because this interloper got to ride on this great old war horse.
