Motorcycle in Museums

Last week, as part of his family’s "Stay-cation" in Ventura County, Simi Valley Police Officer Chris Coulter brought his family up to The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum.

Not only is one of his police motorcycles on display as part of the Library’s "Born to be Wild: Vintage and Celebrity Motorcycles" Exhibit, but Coulter was also part of the team that moved all 40 motorcycles into place the night before the exhibit opened.

Chris Coulter
says: "It was a pleasure to be invited to help. The Reagan Library is such an incredible venue that combines history, patriotism, and the beautiful scenery of Southern California all in one place. To now showcase some of the most unique and amazing motorcycles only makes it better. It is incredible to see the difference in scale between our motorcycles and Air Force One and I was proud to bring my family down to see the show."

The "Born to be Wild: Vintage and Celebrity Motorcycles" Exhibit, which chronicles the history and rich tradition of motorcycle culture from around the world, is currently on display at The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum through Nov. 9, 2010 within the Library’s Air Force One Pavilion.

The exhibit includes the display of dozens of iconic movie and celebrity motorcycles as well as rare and vintage motorcycles dating back to 1899.
