Bud, how long in advance did you have to make your reservations? I checked and they were full months ago.

I'm not going and I'm bummed.

This year, the tickets went on sale July 9th.
I purchased space in camp lot C on the same day, first thing in the morning.
The track-side campsites were already presold out, previous year track-side campers get first dibs on the next year.

Remember, between Birmingham, Trussville, Leeds and Hoover there should be accomodations available with 15-ish miles. But then, I do a 100 mile round trip commute every year...

There's lots of motels on hiway 280, 15 miles from Barber. I got a room at the Marriott for $60.00 plus tax on priceline.

I'll mostly be in the pits with these guys,



but will hopefully find some time to wander about too. Dunno what I'll be on, look for a silver Norton Interstate or my "92 GS bumblebee.
Bob and Champagne Racing is still going....That's awesome!

I tried to write an article about them for Classic Racer. It didn't get picked up, but their pits were always a fun place. I'll try to stop by and say hi. It's been about 10 years since I've seen any of them: great bunch of people with LOTS of history in bike racing.

No Nobby this year, he has other plans today. But Bob & Joe are here, along with Alex.

Barber Motorsports

Got to the hotel about 3. Great weather all the way from Charlotte. Got Barber at 4 and went to the ACE Cafe. Looks like that will be some fun tomorrow. Did the track ride at about 5. That was a bunch of fun. I hope that the GoPro worked. We had a good time even though there were a number of bikes on the track. Everyone acted like they had some sense and there were no issues. Lots of great bikes here, all kinds and in many different stages of repair. Did I mention that I was cruising around one of the turns on the track and got passed by one of the Cannonball guys on an old HD. That was special.
Im expecting tomorrow to be a great day as well, Im going to try to get there early and spend some time in the museum. With all the old bikes here its like a rolling museum around the track.

This and I asume there's probably only the One King Dick present at Barbers will be running in the Century Race tommorrow at 11-11:30 A.M. Be there or not.
The bike has a Kentucky Wrecking Crew connection and will be fetttled on the 2nd level of the pits by Duddles of ADV and K.W.C. fame.
I'll be there too after checking out the Unclaimed Baggage center here in Scottsboro in the A.M.
Where is ADV central ? And does anyone know what row RTW Dougs swapmeet set setup is on ?
I'm riding {the piss] out of my '92 KLR. Come on baby, show me 54,000 tommorrow!

I was really hoping to make it this year after visiting Barber Museum for the first time earlier in the summer.

Unfortunately, obligations in the form of a garage-mahal I'm trying to get dried in before all this rain turns to snow have prevailed...


Please, keep the pics coming !!!

+1. I could written the same thing...except it's not raining here...yet! I had a revelation that if I clean up the garage around the area where the CB360T is currently dis-assembled for the past 2 years, it will magically get put back together and I can go ride it again! And get the van inside the garage this winter; Mrs. RAGBrian would be amused.

At my visit to Barber a couple of months back, I got an autographed copy of David Haynes book Motorcycling Alabama in the gift shop. I figured I would use it to help me find some great routes into the next Vintage Festival.
