Motorcycle Museum in Hudson Valley

"NEWBURGH, N.Y. — When it comes to assessing the motivations of a motorcycle collector, it is never clear exactly where to draw the line between a hobby and an obsession.

  

But it seems quite likely that Gerald A. Doering has crossed it.

 

Evidence to support that conclusion is spread over the 85,000 square feet of Motorcyclepedia, an expansive museum that Mr. Doering, 84, opened this year with his son, Ted, 62. The eclectic collection, assembled over several decades and comprising more than 400 motorcycles, occupies two floors of a former lumber warehouse and showroom in this careworn Hudson River city 65 miles north of Manhattan.

  

Mr. Doering’s interest in two-wheel vehicles took off with his first motorcycle, a 1929 Indian Scout that he bought locally in 1947."  See the full article at

"However, my favourite feature is the “Plan winding route” function which suits my spur-of-the-moment sense of adventure and the need to try different roads. I reckon it’s brilliant and just what many bike riders have always wanted. We don’t always head out with a clear intention of where we are going, so this is very handy for those riders."
