Guy Webster/Michael Taggart Collection
Many, many members of this forum will have a far great appreciation for the following than I do, but I can't help that I'm a lunk head.
My buddies Brad and Tim invited me to go on a ride today to check out the "motorcycle museum" in Ojai. I knew about the museum in Solvang, but had never heard of one in OJai. Well, it turns out that this "museum" is the private collection of [URL="http://www.guywebster.com/"]Guy Webster[/URL] and [URL="http://www.ojaivalleynews.com/issues2003/02-February2003/02-28-03/02-28-03photostory.html"]Michael Taggart[/URL]. they share a passion for Italian motorcycles and British automobiles, among others. If you don't know (I didn't) Webster is a preeminent celebrity photographer, documenter of such luminaries as Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, Jack Nicholson, and Rita Hayworth. He still works at his studio in Venice, CA. Taggart is a retired English teacher who appears to have inherited money from the Budweiser fortune. However these two gentlemen came by their money, they sure know who to spend it. Here's a brief tour of their two facilities, within one block of each other in a nondescript industrial park in Ojai, CA.
Here Guy Webster allows a young museum-goer the opportunity to sit astride and rev the engine of whatever bike he chose. He chose well.
Sure was a fun and interesting day. Great ride, great food, good buds, and lots of really cool bikes. Thanks for looking. Rest of the pictures are [URL="http://SNC1923.smugmug.com/gallery/4763639_khagK/9"]here[/URL].
