I finally got around to posting some pics from our Barber 2014 Festival Trip.

As usual, a huge turnout of the faithful. This is an event that has some real momentum and seemed even busier than last year. Parking was at a premium due to the large turnout and I hope they have plans for more as it could put a damper on the event.

Friday may have been the peak day but Saturday was no slouch either.

Even the “Globe of Death” was a big hit. Imagine three bikes inside a 16 foot globe with a hot babe in the middle of this mayhem! Barely enough room turn one bike around let alone three of these guys whizzing around inside a teacup. Then one of the guys gets a flat and calmly finishes the show like it’s no big deal. Yikes.

Jerry Wood’s auction was the usual collection of junkers and jewels. A few bikes went out the door for bargain prices IMHO and some brought top dollar. Ya gotta love auctions.

Anyway, here are some pics.

Enjoy.

Yet more Vincents….I mean you couldn’t swing a dead cat without hitting a Vincent at Barber’s this weekend. They were everywhere, I lost count at 60.

The Legendary “Gunga Din” that Rollie Free rode in his abbreviated swimwear.

They did an obligatory start up which deafened half the crowd. No matter, most of the old geezers were hard of hearing in the first place. What???!!!
