Be there in the vendors area at the Nashville Ton Up booth. Stop by and have a beer.

Hey Pete!! If you want some pre Barber fun, the AMA is Flat Track racing in Elbridge NY this Saturday Nite. It's close to Syracuse. I drove up to Charlotte a couple of weekends ago to watch the 1/2 mile there. The GNC-2 winner in Charlotte is from Canandaigua NY. Colby "The Flying Tomato" Carlisle go cheer him on!! We have been 90 or more degrees here for a record 54 days. It will be Halloween and cooling off before my T-160 comes out of the house and the AC!!! Not doing Barber this year CJ wants to ride the mountains and see the leaves change. Going to Tellico Plains or Suches. Later Bodine

I am really looking forward to Barber this year! Triumph Dealers of America is the major sponsor. Don Hutchinson and John Healey will be putting on seminars as well! Reminds me of VMD Mid Ohio in 2008 when there was an incredible turn-out. There is talk that this event is becoming the premier vintage motorcycle event in the country just as VMD Mid Ohio once was.

I am hoping there will bea at least one organized classic British ride...anyone?

Great Event with the ARMA racing and last year the paddock was packed. There is a 55,000 sq. ft. annex being built next to the museum to house the pile of bikes in the room off the resto area.
Over 60 thousand fanny's through the gate last year!!! Big Fun
If you make it, you will have a sore brain for a week checking out all the insane stuff!!
PS how did you end up being GEE-OFF!! I'm 63 and suffered many years where the dumb asses could not pronounce Jeff correct.
1953 Sebring 12 hr. Geoff Duke running an Aston with the Aston NA team. Moms there in the pits with Dad and my Godfather racing an MG-TD. Godfather has an Aston connection mom meets Sir Duke and I end up a GEE-OFF. Nik name from some dude I met in the early 70's that raced Modifieds around the North East and would win the Daytona 500 and build some kickass Bob Sleds!!
Later Geoff in Melbourne Fl.

I'll be at the swap meet in F14-F15 with a trailer load of mostly pre unit BSA junk (emphasis on junk). Drop by for free advise and pontificating.

Mid Ohio is just as good as it ever was(minus racing)...I went to barber two years ago and found it cool, but not as appealing as mid O ...but that is just my opinion....

Bad news. The band I drive around has a gig booked in Chicago that weekend. Can't let some rookie drive the bus that far.
