Barber Vintage weekend

We loaded up Friday morning and headed for Barber Motorsports Park. It was a nice ride even though it rained for the whole four hour ride. We camped at the track and the first day it was a muddy mess but by Sat. evening it had dried up. It was one of the best events I have ever been to. Have never seen so many old bikes in my life. Some I had dreamed of owning and some I had never heard of. Some great racing ,if you like racing it is all day long.

Nice shots. Isn't that a great facility? Did you check out the museum?

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

Sounds like a challenge to me!

Now I have four!

Nice shots. The track is 15 minutes from the house. This is the first year we have missed it. We went to Daytona this year. Covered 1900 miles in 5 days. I think the Versys will go down in history as the best bike ever built with that bad of a seat.

I modified my seat and it is better. Could have never made it if it had still been stock.

Tried to video some of the racing. Listening to all the different sounding bikes was great.
