    104.1 on my dash yesterday on the way up. This afternoon spent staring at Lotuses. I love Barber.

    Was good to see everyone, and the ride up with @sperz1 and @dwrobin (who’s a superstar for riding a heavily laden 390 Duke up and back!!)was some much needed fun! I’m still not sure what all you high dollar guys are talking about when you say stuff like “modes” and “water cooling” :scratch
    Overnighting at MMS with @Mugwest is always a honor and the hospitality is off the charts! I’m lucky to have the CEO/CFO/Guru as a family member :nod
    Thanks to @YJake for the campfire and the chatter.


    Quote of the weekend came from @Mini Trail "It wouldn't be Barber if I didn't have to work on something to either stay alive or get home"

    That completes most of my ride report

    My drive home was uneventful if long. I got unloaded, showered & dressed & pushed on to the airport where my flight was delayed until it was inevitable that I would miss my connection. I drove home through a terrible storm & have to try again in a few hours. So for what it's worth the Mini Trail were more reliable than Delta today.

    Some realizations from the weekend:

    1) I still pack way too much shit
    2) Packing too much shit leaves too little room for beer
    3) Having friends with hard luggage is a good thing when buying beer
    4) I need a Honda Monkey
    5) I also need a Trail70
    6) The stock UGS seat is better without the Sheepskin
    7) I hope BMW makes the 1800 Cruiser Concept because I’ll have to own one
    8) slow racing will get you sent to jail just as much as fast racing evidently
    9) @YJake is not as good at promoting me to demo something as @Dr.Z is
    10) Friends are good. Beer is good. Friends who can tote beer is good.
    11) Greek guys running food trucks are evidently under a LOT of stress- could be from the liquid diabetes he’s serving up and calling it lemonade.
    12) The UGS is a shit ton of fun no matter what environment I put it in
    13) You can use a minitrail for downed rider rescue, but ratchet straps on an ATV are worth more than life itself
    14) if you lose the key to your 250 Rebel you just yank the tank and fill it from the petcock side
    15) fresh “blue juice” in the shitter will set your eyeballs on fire

    Another great Weekend at Barbers and another goofy tale. Sat in line for a while to get Mr Pentons autograph and about 5 seconds of chat time
    (First photo). Went over to the lunch/brunch set up for a break and he sat at my table and we watched the Mizzou game together. (Second photo) all good, peace, out

    Just arrived home in the torrential rain. (Why is waterproof gear not waterproof?)
    This was my first trip to Barber, what a great time! No way to see it all in 3 days, guess I have to go back next year.

    16) you could always just come to my camper & drink my beer - out of a cooler - full of ice
    17) you could always tell me you will come to my camper & I'll bring burgers & such to cook (instead of me mooching off of the other people who have campers & tons of extra food & beers)
    18) I can't pack too much shit, (I can pack more shit than I care to unload)
    19) Pensacola is a lot closer to Birmingham than Jacksonville
    20) I'll be back there next year if I don't have too much cancer from the shitter juice

    21) At 230lbs, it’s still possible to accidentally loop a

    My COG friend has this rig in red. Picked up at the swap meet a couple years ago and it is a frickin hoot to ride at BVF.
