Question Anyone headed to Overland Expo East or Barber Vintage Fest?

I'm going to be taking off on a road trip the last weekend of September for a multi-week ride through the back roads of the South East (FL, SC, NC AL, TN and maybe a few others) as well as attend these two events. Any other Flat Landers going to either event?

I'm heading out to the Barber event. Going via western NC with some buds. I plan on camping at Barber if I can find space.

It will only be multi week if the bike holds together

Probably going to have to take the truck to NC as the wifey wants to go to NC. I'll leave her there then head out on the bike from there to Barber.

How many days are you planning to take to get from NC to Barber? And will you be on a DS or street bike?

I have my ticket for Barbers, but don`t know if I can get there on time. Camping in Lot D. Leaving Newfoundland next week. Lotsa places to go, and people to annoy along the way.
Will be home for voting.

We are heading out to Charleston to see the G'kids for a few days, then to the north Ga mtns for a few days, then to Nashville for a few days, then to the Festival.

Yes I am putting the bike on a trailer. Even if my wife didn't have a bad back there is no way I could carry 14 days worth of her crap on a motorcycle...

I may wind up in lot D as well. Some local chopper guys invited me to camp in their spot so hopefully that pans out. If not I may be commando camping.



2tall, Don't you know that you can't go camping without a hair dryer, curling iron, straightening iron, summer and fall colored makeup "just in case" as well as shoes that are outfit specific??!!

Oh I know...

While she's catching up with her friends in Nashville, I'll be putting some miles on the pig...

Overland East

I will be riding up to Asheville from Gainesville, FL for the Overland Expo East. I plan on leaving Sept. 28 or 29 and riding the eastern portion of the GA TAT solo up to atl, where Im meeting up with some fellow riders and heading to asheville. I think they have to go back to work the following Monday, and I don't. If you wanted to ride after the expo I would be interested.

A group of five of us are riding from East Texas to Barber on Friday the 10th. Everyone else's rides sound a lot more fun. We are slabbing it 500+ miles there and back on I20.
