So much to do in Warm Springs Georgia
KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN!
The Honda crotch rocket rider was traveling at approximately 85 mph.
The VW driver was talking on a cell phone when she pulled out from a side street, apparently not seeing the motorcycle. The rider's reaction time was not sufficient enough to avoid this accident.
The car had two passengers and the bike rider was found INSIDE the car with them.
The Volkswagen actually flipped over from the force of impact and landed 20 feet from where the collision took place.
All three involved (two in the car and the bike rider) were killed instantly. This graphic demonstration was placed at the Motorcycle Fair by the Police and Road Safety Department..
Pass this on to car drivers or soon to be new drivers, or new motorcycle owners and especially everyone you know who has a MOBILE phone!!!
A picture is worth a thousand words.
Save a life. Stop talking on mobile phones and Texting while trying to drive.
The life you save may be your own..... Or mine...

Museum of Vintage
Warm Springs, GA
Foto Excursion offers you the opportunity to take a trip down memory lane without leaving Lil' Sturgis Street in Warm Springs, GA.
In late 2008, we purchased an old house in close proximity to the already successful Extreme Rider Leather Shop. We have worked on a series of changes that have helped turn the old house into a work of art. Upon entering, you will see some amazing artwork. Look to your right, and you will see scenes from downtown Sturgis, South Dakota. Look to your left, and you will see some fabulous scenes from Route 66. You will have the opportunity to make a photographic record of your travels or to have it done by a professional photographer. We are set to take your picture on your bike, or we will provide a vintage bike for you to record your visit.
Throughout Foto Excursion, you will find no less than 15 perfectly restored Golden Age Triumphs and BSA's dating back to 1939 among a total of 30 amazing bikes and memorabilia. There is a room especially designed for children. Additionally, we have fantastic old pedal cars and bikes that offer a great photo opportunity for your little riders.

Museum of Vintage Motorcycles and More
Warm Springs, GA
Art In Motion Vintage Motorcycle Museum:
This museum is among the best small museums of motorcycles in the Southeast. Included along with the cycles are jukeboxes, slot machines, and early advertising.
About the Collection: Among the forty plus cycles is the well-known collection of Art Sigal. Sigal was a pioneer in the collecting of vintage bikes and was the second president of the Old Bike Club. Even though Jay Leno was in attendance at the auction of Sigal's estate, it was a Pennsylvania investor who ultimately purchased most every bike in the sale. They were subsequently purchased by a Georgia collector. Now they will be on view for all to enjoy when you visit the Art in Motion Vintage Motorcycle Museum in Warm Springs, GA.
