Barber Vintage Festival is a Must-See Event for Motorcycle Enthusiasts
For motorcycle guys, there are a handful of events that are considered "must-see"...you have Sturgis, Daytona Beach Bike Week, Davenport and so on. We're adding another one to the list and it's not too far away from our headquarters in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It's the Barber Vintage Festival, held at the magnificent Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds, Alabama (near Birmingham). The 12th annual event was just a couple weeks ago, and we went down to check out the action, and of course, represent our company. We're constantly trying to broaden our product lines, and the motorcycle market is growing quickly, so setting up at the Barber Vintage Festival was an excellent opportunity for us to reach some new customers. It is certainly a fertile market for our product offering, so we're excited to attend more motorcycle events in the future, and we will definitely be back to the Barber Vintage Festival. First of all, the Barber Motorsports Park facility is nicer than you can imagine. The property is perfectly groomed and the track itself is top notch. We also made a pass through the Barber Motorsports Museum, which is one of the most spectacular collections we've seen...we'll make a separate post about that later. For now, let's take a look at some of the awesome stuff we saw the 2016 Barber Vintage Festival. Thousands of motorcycles invaded the property, and parked along the road that surrounds the race track, and we simply couldn't believe the range of years, makes and models covered in the group of bikes. It wasn't just American bikes--if you're into vintage dirt bikes, vintage scooters, mini bikes or anything on two wheels, this event has it all. From the swap meet and vendor midway to the special stunt shows and racing action, the Barber Vintage Festival kept us entertained, and we hope you can make plans to check it out next October.
