Today I finally got round to visiting the London Motorcycle Museum, tucked away down a side street over in Greenford. Rode the bike through the gridlock that is London during the Olympics and got soaked a couple of times by the sudden downpours that characterise our 'summer'. It's a quaint little place, full of interesting bikes and enthusiastic staff who're happy to spend time explaining the detail of the bikes they have there. What was impressive was the mixture - in the main room were loads of different makes, including some real oddities, while in another building around the back were the Triumphs, including 4 or 5 notable prototypes. Here's some pictures.
