2014 Barber Motorsports Vintage Motorcycle Days

Mmm. No ride or event section in this forum. Guess this is as good a place as any to put this thread.

Had a great weekend at Barber. The weather cooperated. There was a good turnout and I believe everyone had fun. Well, almost everyone.





There is a lot to see at Vintage Days. Some go for the racing.













Sorry for the image quality. 10 year old camera on max zoom.

Some go for the Vintage Trials and Cross Country events. I was a section judge for the Trials Competition. These bikes are 40 or more years old.



This rock was kicking folks butts. It was definitely a mental game to maneuver around and over obstacles. It may not look like much, but they had to make a really tight turn and it was right in the way.





This is a 1930s Royal Enfield that he did not want to drop so he took the Dab for putting a foot down.





Success!

Some of the custom vintage bikes were rolling art.

Some of the Custom Vintage Bikes Not so much...









This Indian Inline Four and this Morgan Cyclecar were pretty amazing. The Cyclecar was driving around and it is amazing anyone can even fit in this thing.

There were also a couple of death defying shows to get your adrenalin going. The Wall of Death and the Globe of Death drew the crowds.













At one point they had 3 bikes riding while the blond stood in the middle of the Globe of Death. I was too mesmerized to take a photo.

There was also a New Bike vendor area where Triumph, Moto Guzzi, BMW, Motus, and Indian were represented. If you had $300k burning a hole in you pocket you could take home one of these custom built Motus machines.



and triumph showed off this bike that was ridden hard and put away wet, to show off how tough their adventure bikes are.

The Swap Meet area was very interesting. Everything from small parts to complete bikes. One guy had a Kawasaki Gas Tank sitting on a stack of bins with a $2000 price tag on it. I asked him if the rest of the bike was in the bins, but sadly no.

I did find some tanks that to me made good subject matter for still life photos.





and I did find a Moto Guzzi sign to hang above my Café Classic.




Barber Motorsports Vintage Days is a must on your motorcycle bucket list. I hope this thread has inspired some of you to make the trip next year.



That's all for now. See ya!
