    Barber Vintage Festival

    So the big weekend at Barber is coming up in a few weeks and man, do I have a lot to do to get ready.
    Last year was a pretty good year for me at the festival so this year I have reserved two vendor spots.
    I'm going to have some NOS Honda parts and along with a couple of buddies will also have some bikes
    for sale.

    Just putting the word out on this forum only that I will be happy to provide a space for anyone that may
    have a bike they want to sell. No fee is required. Of course donations to offset my cost will not be refused.
    One of my buddies is bringing 5 CT70's, another has a 77 CB750F tracker, and we'll also have a 83 CB1100F.

    This thing gets bigger every year and there's no telling what may be available. If you've never attended you
    should try to make it this year. Last year almost 65,000 people strolled the aisles of the swap meet. Barber has
    again this year added vendor spots so they are up to almost 500.

    Would love to meet some of the guys that contribute to this forum. Geeto if you show up I'll have a cold one
    waiting for you.

    Hell yeah! I'll be there Thursday night until Sunday afternoon, flagging races Friday and Saturday. I hope to spend some time walking around the swap meets, would be cool to meet a few guys from CR.net while I'm there.
    I'll be on my Guzzi, and my wife will hopefully be riding our cb350.
    Post your location once you get setup, and I'll try to come check out your booth!

    Tried talking some of the board members into a road trip this year - hell it's only 1,000 miles from my house or a little over 1,200 if we travel through Ohio to get Geets - but I think I started too late. Not enough time off from work/no money/etc... Maybe next year? Would love to race at Barber as well but I suspect it's like Mid-Ohio in that if you are racing there is no time to enjoy the rest of the event.

    Barber is not my favorite track, but I have only raced it once and it rained most of the time. Maybe I will get a chance to get back there again. My race season is pretty short since the students are all back and we have been in school for over a week, now. Barber would have to be a fly in race for me.

    Definitely looking forward to seeing two of the Britten bikes in action. The Britten Motorcycle Company put two of them on a ship from NZ on Sept 1. Said there is also something coming that has never left NZ. Didn't say what it was, though.
