Gorgeous, wonderful machines. This does suck.
... big time... I always wanted to go there and visit the museum on our trips to northern Italy, it´s just a less than 3 hrs drive from here. I´ve seen some photos showing a few Harleys and Indians unharmed out in the snow, so I guess they were able to safe a few bikes from the fire. A shame none the less...
This is the one
That wood floor and ceiling probably made that a hot blaze. What a shame. A lot of history lost.
No Fire Extinguishing/Suppression System for a Facility like that?????
That is terrible!! Even the night security camera video was most likely destroyed.
Mental Note * don't build museum from timber
Britain's National Motorcycle Museum burned in 2003, destroying 380 bikes. It didn't have a sprinkler system either. After a massive effort 150 bikes were restored. It has a sprinkler system now.
