Hi all,

Just a heads-up, the Petersen Museum in L.A. is debuting a new motorcycle exhibit this Friday:

https://www.petersen.org/events/custom-revolution?utm_source=Master+Opt-in&utm_campaign=d818dc59bc-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_04_10&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_b7d474b575-d818dc59bc-36795601&mc_cid=d818dc59bc&mc_eid=bdec193832

I'm a weekend tour guide at the museum, and have been seeing these bikes roll into our garage to be prepped for display. Very artsy bikes, worth taking a look. Plus, the Petersen has free, bike-friendly parking - just go around the parking barrier, and the motorcycle parking area is on the first floor in the northwest corner.

Thank you for posting this. How long will the exhibit be on display for?

I'm really not sure how long the exhibit will be on display, and they don't have the run dates listed on the website, so chances are they aren't really sure just yet. But, I'd guess not more than a month or two. They just did a Harley vs. Indian display that only ran for a few months.

If you go, check out the Porsche exhibit. One of the items on display is a prototype Porsche motorcycle that wasn't put into production, and looks very weird...

It's been almost a decade since I was last there, but relax, you have almost an entire year before that exhibit goes away: https://www.petersen.org/custom-revolution

Saw the exhibitís final installation go in. Cool bikes and dramatic staging. A few are suspended by cables from the ceiling. Worth checking out. Also if you havenít been there for a few years, the place underwent a huge renovation in 2015 and is totally different.

Went there for the Harley vs Indian exhibit also for the Bugatti exhibit.

I told Kim we gotta go there, and I told Repsol there is a Porsche exhibit there right now as well!
