Like the movie, "Night at the Museum", the bikes do come alive. Outside of Wichita, Kansas at a wonderfully outfitted motorcycle museum uniquely named, Twisted Oz, things do happen after hours. The museum curator, Paul told us every motorcycle in the museum, apart from one, is taken out and ridden. This is particularly amazing because half their collection contains bikes from the early to mid-1900s as well as many custom bikes and sidecars. It is a thrill to look at a bike from history and know it could still carry you to new places with all the unique rustic starters, time owned sounds and bare minimum seats.
Also, after hours the museum curators and owners create their own riding stories and they share them with you as you tour the museum which truly enhances the eye candy experience. There is a guest book there for you to sign. I would not be surprised if when the doors are closed for the evening, they don't occasionally take a peek to see what far away destination people have traveled to see their one-of-a-kind collection. I heard a story about someone riding through from Australia. Ask Paul about that one.
