I'm in preliminary planning stages to maybe run 4 events this year, or AT LEAST 3 event (must run 2 events or you don't qualify to run at Barber's)

So here's looking at you lads who might be at -

Kershaw, NC March 18-20
High Plain (Colorado) April 22-24
Topeka, KS May 27-29
Barber's (Birmingham, AL) October 6-9

If you've never been to Barber's Vintage Festival, you are REALLY missing out on one of the top motorcycling attractions in the U.S. every year.

Now that my middle son has returned stateside from his tour in Germany, he'll be stationed at Fort Riley, KS; so, a VERY good chance that he and my oldest son can race with me at the Heartland event! Too bad my youngest is only 11, I'd LOVE to have all 4 of us on a track before i get too old (still possible, based on how old BritBodger was when he last raced with me).

I sure hope to meet some more fellow AccessNorton.Com members out there this year!

At this point, I'm hoping it'll be:

Me - '65-69 Bonneville in Production Heavyweight, '83 Honda VF750F in NexGen
My oldest son Jason - '74 Yamaha RD400 in Prod/Heavy
My middle son Kevin - '72 BMW R75 in Prod/Heavy, '02 Ducati Fogarty Monster in NexGen 3

Still trying to figure out if I have another bike that Jason can ride in NexGen so we all get to race together in both classes.

I will likely hit Topeka, Little Tally and Barber for sure. Colorado and Gingerman are strong possibilities.

What GPZ said about Barber Vintage Days is a huge understatement. If this event and this venue were were in Europe, there'd be a half-million in attendance instead of the 50-70,000 it normally attracts.

Brilliant, I wish I could be there. Looking forwards to the reports. I have been to work on my ZRX today, I have wondered what it would be like on track, which reminds me, I must put it away.

And start the prep… like NOW…!
Oh yeah. My only problem is that I'm not 100%. It's a long story, but I have to get my strength back after allergies, infection and constipation kicked my butt (going on 1 week now). I need a few more days, then I'll start slowly.

Kershaw is on March 18th, so I really only need to prepare my Bonneville to race, maybe the Interceptor so I can race AND ride with the Britbike.Com guys the following week.

Good to hear you're giving it another shot, Paul. And particularly with your sons. I'm way past giving racing another shot, but I've enjoyed a lot of riding with my grandson for the last 10 years.

I've only been to Barber once, back in 2004, but had a great time . By then I was just wrenching for friends who were racing my bikes, but it was still fun. It's a beautiful track, and the museum is amazing.
