Check out this motorcycle museum if you’re passing through Pennsylvania…

If you’re like me, you like to check out cool automotive and/or motorcycle museums as you travel. You might not have heard of Bill’s Old Bike Barn, which is in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. It looks like a great place to visit, although I admit I haven’t been there myself, at least not yet.

How many of these dangerous stunts have you seen before?

Watching someone jump their motorcycle even just a short distance can be exhilarating.

TAMPA — A memorial service is planned Monday at Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church for Taylor Koulouris, 15, a Plant High School student and a member of the church’s youth community who died from injuries she received in a South Tampa motorcycle crash Friday.

The same guy who famously played Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequel trilogy and has been in a long list of films like Trainspotting, Moulin Rouge, and Doctor Sleep not only has an extensive motorcycle collection but also rides his many bikes often.
