You may read this in your motorcycle magazines but their has been ahuge fire at the British motorcycle museum in Birmingham England.650 bikes worth over 14 Million dollars were destroyed. These bikes went back to the start of motorbikes and will be a great loss. Passersby managed to push 250 bikes to safety. Disapprove [V]

I unfortunatley don't know much about those bikes in England, however being a fellow biker, I am sadden by this....

I think the passer-by who saved those 250 motorcyclesshould be greatly rewarded....

It never fails every now and then to hear about a fire that destroys something like that. We had a Christmas day fire one year and the only thing we were able to save was the motorcycle the wife had bought for her husbands christmas that was in the basement.
