    At this years Barber Vintage Festival. I was able to thank Brian Slark for the great job the museum did displaying the Patrick racer. The large photo murals behind the bike are spectacular. I now call it the Patrick Corner. There was also a pretty newly put together Ranger 750 in the Motorcycle classics show and a P11A riding around the park. Always great to be there. Yikes, I don't know why these photos appear twice? Sorry about that. DSC01271.JPG DSC01275.JPG DSC01277.JPG DSC01288.JPG DSC01302.JPG DSC01303.JPG

    Here's what I was trying to say...even the edit wouldn't make it right? "At this years Barber Vintage Festival.

    that's my ranger in the motorcycle classics show, nice to see that it's appreciated! it's been together for a couple of years now but was involved in an accident in june of last year necessitating some serious work (as did my leg!). After some persistent clutch issues were overcome it has settled down into a role of daily rider for the last year or so.

    Thank you for posting this link Ben. The Barber Vintage Festival has become the premier vintage motorbike event of the year here in the United States. Hopefully, all that love our old & modern bike lifestyle will be able to visit this world class facility at least once in their life. For me it's become a must. Next years event is Oct. 9, through Oct.11, 2020. My friend Mike Tyler, active on this site and many others, created these little video gems and has a very good YouTube channel. I highly recommend it.

    My racer buddy says if Barber Vintage Fest were in Europe, there would be hundreds of thousands in attendance and it might be the biggest motorcycle event on the planet.

    It was light this year, but I want to think the oppressive heat had something to do with it. It would have melted Europeans.

    But there have been years when it's been massive. I want to say like 85,000 over the weekend.
