    Yes a bunch of us will be there. I'm staying at the Drury inn

    https://druryhotels.com/ ...
    3510 Grandview Parkway ...

    Kevin (forestrider) is sharing a room if he gets his bike fixed in time.
    I get up early, so come bang on my door.
    You ought to bring your DR on the trailer and ride the back road with us to Barbers. A fun/short ride.
    You can leave your car/trailer at Drury Inn.
    It's easier getting around Barbers on a bike. But do a go-around on the trolley to get a overview of the entire place first.

    If this is your first trip to Barbers Vintage Days you will be blown away.
    No other way to say it.

    I was going to enter the XR in the cross country, but between not fixing the blown shock, soft seat, and the sticking transmission, I gotta pass this go around.

    Riding the VStrom up to Barbers and then it's on to the Smokeys for the rest of the week.
    Lee Glaze (the fella that bought your 450 Kaw) is going with me on his 1400 Concourse.


    EDIT: Jim, I'll pm you my cell number.
    All going ought to share cell numbers in case we want to gather at some point, or share info about event times.

    Jim, Madhouse,

    I'll be up there also this week (Thurs - Sun). The people that I'm going with, half are staying in a hotel and then the rest of us have a sweet little plot of land rented sitting right above the track where we'll have a motorhome and some tents pitched overlooking the races. I'll be bringing the 530EXC in sumo trim to do some local rides with the guys who will have street oriented machines. It's my first time also and hear that it's quite the experience. I'll PM you guys my #.

    For those staying the weekend, you can get a 3 day ticket at the window with the "AHRMA" sign taped to the glass. 35$ for all three days:clap Skid, the price of admission gives you full access to everything(museum is extra but a must see). If possible,you need to be there more than 1 day. Once your there, you will regret not having more time. We will be there Thurs-Sun, parked above the MX track. All welcome to come say hi. We will have room for you to park, shade, & cold beer:wink: If anybody sees my KLX (Team USA graphics) holler at me to stop so I'll get to see/meet the Pcola guys I haven't met yet......

    New rider here from Niceville. I just got this 04 XRL a couple days ago. Been riding it around Eglin a little bit. Not confident enough to really take it into traffic to or too far from my house yet, but hopefully soon I'll be exploring the area more!

    Yeah, my original plan was to be there for 2-3 days, and possibly bring a bike, but since this is the first time, I AM expecting to be overwhelmed, AND I am bringing girlfriend who really only wants to stay for one day. Next year, I WILL plan better and earlier, but will have some idea on what I want to do. :clap

    A few years ago, I sold my '88 KDX to a guy that was going to start doing vintage races with it. I was like- Damn! I wanna do that! So that is something down the road I may have to partake in...

    If you can, bring a pit-bike, it will make it easier to get around but.....if you don't, no worries, they have trams running around the grounds constantly, kinda like disneyworld. Come to lot "D" and look us up.....look for hurricane rv + KLX+VOR etc.
    P.S. you would love the vintage stuff.....at Diamond Dons last year they had OVER 800 entries:eek1:eek1

    Hey, we're gonna be up there too, no tickets yet. Do we need to be AHRMA members to get the $35 price? We'll keep an eye out for your KLX. Thanks for the info!

    Technically yes but they don't ask for your card. Just walk up to that(ahrma) window & say you want a 3 day pass, if you go through Barber its about 85$:eek1 If your camping ask for that too its 25 for the wknd

    Well, we just finished day one in Rome, GA. 100 miles.

    I picked up Barney at his house at 8 this morning. Started from Cheaha after lunch in Goodwater at 1pm and rode the dusty gravel into the hills. I can't post pics because Photobucket uses Flash so my iPad is being treated like a second class device...oh we'll.

    Cold, cloudy and breathtaking!

    Tomorrow we shoot for Franklin, NC..........:freaky

    Thanks to Dr Z for the lead on the Moab bag! It rocks!

    I recommend doing the museum first thing Fri. am, there's too much going on Sat/Sun to take it in (& you HAVE to take it in,hence the Fri. push):D

    Just read that KTM has already stopped production of the 990 Adventures,so the 990 Superduke will end to. To make way for the New 1190 Adventures.
    So if you wont a 990 better get one now.
