Barber Motorsports vintage motorcycle races (12-14 Oct 12)

http://www.barbervintagefestival.org/

Who's in? It's just east of Birmingham, AL. I'll be riding down from Chattanooga, TN with a few friends on Saturday (13 Oct 12) on a VFR. I'm just curious as to who else may be attending. It looks like it'll be a really great day.

It's my first time down there. I thought it was just a race. I didn't know there was a swap meet as well. I told my wife I don't think I want to go now; it's too much awesome for me to handle!

I was asked by a few friends of mine to go down with them. My bike is unavailable and Casey is letting my borrow his 25th anniversary VFR. Score! It'd be a nicer ride on that than my F650.

I can't wait!

It is too awesome to handle. It's sensory overload the first time you go.
As cool as it is to see a perfect vintage bike in the museum, seeing the same bike loaded up in the parking lot with oil, filth and tags from a couple states over is even cooler.

You ain't kidding! That's nice to see. I hate to see "trailer queens". Plus, I've got a special place in my heart for BSAs. Great photo.

Thumb Two's in!

This will be my 5th? Vintage Days at Barber.....FANTASTIC time every year, air show, swap meet, vendors out the wazoo, bike auction, great weather geeez I think it is the BEST weekend Barber puts on.....and I only live 3 miles from the track, so I go to about every event he puts on.

Come on down, over, whatever from wherever, the weather is supposed to be great this weekend and I can guarantee you won't regret it!

See you guys there, Fri, Sat, and Sunday!
