Barber Vintage Festival
 
Whew!

Got home last night. Me mates and I worked with the Triumph folks on the Demo runs. I think we put 150 some-odd folks on bikes over the weekend.

Friday was rather soggy, but Saturday and Sunday were picture-perfect! Lots of folks, the swap meet was happnin', and there was lots of racing action.

If you haven't been to Barber, you need to make a trip. Although I never got a chance to get into the Museum, the grounds are fantastic! The track sits in a natural bowl, so there are great vantage points almost all the way around the track. The landscaping is on par with the big amusement parks (Seaworld, Disney) and parking is plentiful. They have a tram system that runs continuously around the perimeter of the complex.

I've gotta come up with a reason to drive back up there...

The sculptures there are truly something to behold.

Like the 40-foot-diameter Tarantula......... or the Giant Ants making-off with bike and rider.............(my particular favourite!)
