This might sound like a cop-out, but my favorite thing is the collection. All of it, in all of its incredible glory. The business documentation, marketing literature, periodicals, memorabilia, riding gear, dealer and club materials—and of course, the fantastic vehicles. The photography collection is a seemingly bottomless well of beauty and information. Every time I go digging for something, I find more new favorite things. When I'm trying to figure out why the founders made a decision or started an initiative, I can go straight to the handwritten meeting minutes, read the typescript of a Walter Davidson speech, page through news clippings, or pull out a bound volume of The Bicycling World and Motorcycle Review. That it exists in this state says so much about the founders and the generations of employees who followed in their footsteps. They started saving this material right from the beginning, and kept it up through triumph and adversity, recessions, depressions, world wars, buyout, and buyback.
