Took a nice little day ride down to the Wheels Through Time museum down in Maggie Valley yesterday. I have rode by it about a dozen time in a cage and bike and never had time to stop by so me and the better half rode on down to check it out. Very cool place and if you have never been then you need to. The owner was there and he fired up a few bikes and took one of the 100+ year old bikes for a spin! The biggest downside I found of the place is that the owner only keeps American made bikes. I am all for anything American made but I love all kinds and makes of bikes and was hoping to see some old Nortons, Triumphs, etc. There was also maybe 50 bikes in the parking lot, all HD except for my Vic and somebody had a Vision tucked under a shade tree. I could not believe the sea of HD shirts on the people in the museum! I thought they all looked funny dressing the same and I guess me and the better half stuck out since we both wear mesh riding pants with shorts underneath (took off riding pants and put in saddlebags) and I was wearing an old polo style shirt. I did get some very good compliments from my XR though with one guy coming up to me at MickeyD's and was nice enough to ask permission if he can go out get a close up look at my bike. On a side not I filled up while down there and got 47.5 mpg's!! Most of the tank was the ride down there and mostly interstate doing 70 mph or so but thought that was interesting since my best so far has been 43. I think the bike is getting broken in plus the warmer temps is helping the mpg's inch up some.
