What a great place...

My wife got a picture with Mr. Barber, funny thing is Alton Brown snapped the shot....lol....


Once we cleared out of the industrial area we headed for the famed ďBarbers Vintage Motorcycle MuseumĒ and Porsche race track. (http://barbermuseum.org/) The museum was fantastic though we didnít have a lot of time to visit before they closed. During the visit of the 600+ motorcycles (1500 total in rotation) we met Mr. Barber, a real gentleman and motorcycle enthusiast. Of course Deya needed a picture of him unlike me who doesnít like to bother people so I donít ask. Turns out to be a good thing for us though because Deya has a way of meeting good and interesting people and that is just never a bad thing. As it turns out Mr. Barber and Deya made a deal that had Deya sending him a letter and photo at the end of our trip so he could place it in a spot of distinction amongst the other travelers in his museum.



So Deya runs over to a small group that Mr. Barber was touring around, not wondering why the man himself is doing the tour when heís got enough staff to do that himself. She interrupts and asked if she could get a photo with Mr. Barber and a gentleman in the group takes the camera for the photo. What Deya didnít realize and made me laugh is that Alton Brown (feasting on Asphalt, Iron Chef, Good Eats, Food Network Stuff) was behind the lens. I didnít tell her because again I donít like to bother people but maybe that was a mistake. I later realized this because Alton might have been able to give us some great culinary tips with our tactical budget that would have significantly improved our food intake. Damn Iím dumb some times because the thing I love next to motorcycling is food. Either way these are two more fellows of note that have been good for motorcyclists everywhere. Two degrees of separation here is that Deya worked with Iron Chef Rob Finnie for a short period, who likely knows Mr. Brown, just thought that was odd.

Give us a heads up if you make it to Barbers. Maybe some of us can break away and ride up..

Incredible! I went to Barber several years ago for the AMA race. The museum alone was worth the 800 mile ride. I think museum is the wrong word it, it's more a motorcycle archive.

So I went to Barber in 2011, it was my first visit to Alabama, and first visit to the Barber Vintage days, it won't be my last...

Cool licence tag, are they telling me something







I helped judge the Japanese bike show which was cool, I got to speak to the owner of this Kawasaki, he bought it new direct from the factory in Japan, and bought it to the US on the deck of the aircraft carrier he was stationed on!

I got to have a look around inside the workshop here...



where people more famous than me get to sign the pillars...







I have a load more from inside the museum too, if you would like to see them...
