Good timing for that visit to the AACA Museum Biff. Here's a description of what will be on display when you folks will be in town (in addition to their wonderful antique car and bus presentations):

"A Welcome Invasion: British Motorcycles in America" (https://www.aacamuseum.org/events/event.aspx?id=445)

"Mar 15,2013 - Oct 17,2013 The British are coming! A retrospective of the classic British motorcycles imported to America from 1940 through the 1970s, when the power, performance, chrome and color of the great English machines dominated America racetracks and streets! Welcome Invasion focuses on the motorcycles as aesthetic British motorcycle industry."

I always have a good time visiting: www.aacamuseum.org (https://www.aacamuseum.org)
