Friday June 22nd

Dear Family & Friends,

Still so much to see and do and I need to be back in London in 5 days to meet Bonnie, Hannah, and John… busy, busy, busy.

First there is always a funny moment or two on every trip. 

If you have looked at the photos of my bike is has large aluminum boxes on it. They are great for long trips because they hold so much and can be safely locked, but sometimes they give the bike a very utilitarian look. The other day I was riding through a town in very heavy traffic so I was moving slowly. Suddenly a woman ran up to the curb and excitedly waved at me so I pulled over. As soon as I did she handed me a box and started giving me directions… I had to explain to her I was just touring and that I am not a courier service (Motorcycle courier services are quite common here) she was so embarrassed and we had a good laugh…..

So this morning I got up in the most wonderful inn I have stayed in so far. Classic British country in. Warm and inviting. I went down stairs and the owners (husband and wife) warmly greeted me and made me a delicious breakfast.

Then I loaded up my bike and went for about a ten minute ride, and low and behold the Haynes International Automobile Museum was there. Could that have been coincidence ??? Maybe yes, maybe not… Either way I spent the morning there. A very impressive museum with quite a variety of cars. They had one LARGE room called “The Red Car Room” and every car in there was red, from brass era cars to classics from the 50s and 60s.. 

It is an impressive museum. I wish we had something like this in our area. Not only a museum but a car themed restaurant, meeting area, test track, restoration facility, and go-cart track. Plus they sponsored various car and motorcycle gatherings there every weekend.. My kind of place!

I really enjoyed it and at this stage of my life you just have to accept I am a rabid gear head. Anything with a motor and wheels gets my pulse going….

From there I rode up to Oxford. The straight way was about 1 1/2 hours but I took every twisty meandering road I could find passing through quaint villages and lush farmland so it took me close to 4 hours to get to Oxford. 

I have been going to Oxford for almost 40 years. What a wonderful city with such rich history.. The only down side is it has grown tremendously all around the out skirts and the traffic is horrendous!! From my B&B to downtown is 9 miles and it took 45 minutes, but worth the effort. 

The city is so vibrant. Because has a world famous university you have thousands of smart, free thinking, motivated young people from all over the world. It reminds me of UC Berkley but with much older buildings and more British accents. The interesting thing about Oxford University is that in reality it is not one big school, but a collection of many smaller colleges, each with their own specialties and interspersed through out the city.

I spent the late afternoon just walking around, taking in the sites, taking a few photos, and enjoying a good Chinese dinner..

So now it is time to rest up for another big cultural event tomorrow.



Arriving at the museum…. an NO that sky is not photoshopped, the weather was wonderful today.. Clear, warm, and sunny. Almost felt like a green California!

One of the earliest known tanks from WWI.

Some people just hit the genetic jack pot. This is Mark Webber, successful and talented racing driver with rugged movie start good looks.. There has to be something wrong with him?? Webbed feet???

The Jaguar XJ220. Still one of the best looking super cars of all time, but the few I have driven were not fun to drive.. Way to much Turbo lag.

American Classic Cars are very popular here. There were a lot of them on display that still had their California license plates on them..

Even a few motorcycles…

This tiny in size and displacement (1500cc) F1 Turbo motor put out 1000 hp! From the exciting Turbo era of F1.

Beautiful model cars too!

A great room if you like red cars..

Scooter room

F1 Race Car Room

Don’t get excited, this was not about our president.. Trump in England  are playing cards…

A stop for a quick spot of tea on my way to Oxford.

This me parked at the City Center of Oxford. History and learning surrounds you here, wherever you look.

I love the way they save every old building. You are not allowed to tear down these classic buildings but you can completely gut them and build a whole new building inside the original shell. It makes this country a living museum.

OK one quick food pic… After a while I can’t take any more “Traditional” food so I sent to a local Chinese restaurant and had something we don’t get in the USA.  The pot has a boiling spicy broth, then all the meat and veggies are brought out raw and you cook them yourself in the broth. Then they have a sauce bar that you can take different cups of sauces to dip the food into after it is cooked. VERY GOOD!

Just in case you need to exchange some corn..

The building with the big wooden doors is one of the colleges tucked away in the commercial district of Oxford.
