Vintage Days at Barber Motorsports

Great time at Vintage Days. A lot to see and do. Really fuelling my desire for a café bike, and a vintage trials bike.

They had vintage road racing going on all the time. Everything from 2 strokes to sidecar racing. There was also vintage motocross, trials, and cross-country events. There was a huge swap meet area with everything from parts to complete bikes for sale. There was also an area with some exhibition riding.

All kinds of motorcycles riding around and parked everywhere.

I was an observer at the vintage trials event. major difference between those vintage trials bikes and the modern ones. also a major difference between the obstacles they face at each section.

Here is a pic of vintage Japanese trials bikes.


Here are some pics of a modern trials bike




The MC told us they train on bicycles before moving on to motorized







There was also a wall of death. OMG! Those guys are insane! No pics of the ride because I didn't want to risk dropping my phone on the rider.





They rode those old machines around the wall with no helmets or gear. The wall would move with every pass. Insane!

Here are some of the bikes that interested me.
