10. Barber Vintage Festival

Barber Vintage Festival

Where else in the U.S. can you see all of yesteryear’s iconic and historic racing motorcycles all in one place? The Barber Vintage Festival brings together many of these famous racers from decades gone by to re-live their former glory. And we’re not talking about parade laps, either — these bikes are routinely raced just as hard by their current owners as they were in their heyday.

On top of all the cool bikes on display both on track and in the pits, the track itself has much to offer. From the expansive swap meet, to the amazing museum, if you call yourself a motorcycle enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit the Barber Vintage Festival.

    Isle of Man, by a mile.

    • Oslo Norway

      Good over all list too…Man, the TV thing just doesn’t do a mile track justice. Hockey and dirt track miles seem to suffer this fate. A mile race on the dirt in person is a must see deal…

        Agree with the hockey part.Maybe you’re right about the dirt track part too,wouldn’t rule it out…

    If they were still doing Spa franchorchamps on motoGP,I’d still place it second to IoM.But it would have been a great second:)

    Great list

    Edit:Should be needless to say,but check out TT3D:closer to the edge.It’s documovie from IoM which comes also not 3D :D

    I was hoping #1 would be the Isle of Man! I’m going to make it over soon and bring a bike. They say you can ride the course. The Videos are Unreal!

      Have fun! Yes, there should be opportunities to ride the course. Quite jealous. I’d love to go back.

      If you go there,I would recommend riding around the track very early in the morning (around 5am) rather than mad sunday.Do mad sunday,but be careful then as there are alot of nutters there then.
