    Well hopefully he at least fired it up.


    I'm bummed that I missed Barber's this year. I've been 3 times and enjoyed each one immensely. Night time campground shenanigans are a must.

    Are they doing the vintage mx/off road races this year?

    I can't say but I've not seen or heard of it.

    Last day at Barber's. Walked the pits and spoke with some of the racers. This guy wasn't around but had plenty to look at ready to run. IMG_20191006_102314908_HDR.jpg IMG_20191006_102319778_HDR.jpg IMG_20191006_102323902_HDR.jpg IMG_20191006_102540393_HDR.jpg IMG_20191006_102330914_HDR.jpg

    Interesting boxes. What are they and where did you get them?

    The panniers (side boxes) are Touratech - typically found on BMW GS and such.

    The top box is made by a fellow inmate - he sells them in the vendor section.

    Plenty of good, waterproof storage for my stuff!

    I rode my Ironhead to the Barber Vintage Motorcycle Festival this past weekend, a 250 mile round trip. Temps in the 90s, no problems with the old machine, and a good time was had by all...[​IMG]

    The rear brake and shifter are both on the right side, flat track racer style.

    Bumping for this older post, what bars are those? Looks like a pretty comfy sweep and rise

    They are really comfortable. The chrome version of Harley XLX bars, used on various Harley models over the years.
