Museum Director James Hewing stated “we have tremendous plans over the next few years to make The National Motorcycle Museum a truly dynamic resource for everyone who loves old motorcycles. Building on Museum founder Roy Richards incredible legacy we want to give enthusiasts the chance not only to be part of, but more importantly, to take part in some unique activities that just wouldn’t be possible otherwise.
