Couldn't figure out where to put this----so don't edit me out.

Decided to go to event at Barber MC track in AL. Rained FRi so Sat AM decided on another try----rain so my TU250 kinda out, decided on SilverWing...but then my wife said she wanted to go.....if I would DRIVE my Hyundai Genisis, which I hadn't driven in several months....so gave in. At least the 2ton plus tank, 3.8 liter got 35mpg in the rain.

POINT: I had seen ticket prices in the ads as $20 a day, $45 for 3 days. High

Got there----they wanted $40 for one day, so did a U turn and went home. No MC event worth that much. This $40 did not include Museum visit which would be another $15.

Saw lots of trailer bikers,dressed in short pants and slippers, one big scooter and me in car. Last time in car for me = no fun.

Having walked thru the Museum before, it is worth a visit @$15 for the day as it is probably best in world at this time----fun to see a lot of the bikes you have wasted money on in the past.

My take is: they had probably advertised the prices, turned the ticket sales/gates over to a contractor who just plain ripped people off at the gate-----has most customers had ridden/driven some distance to get there.....they just paid.

It's not uncommon for advance purchase ticket prices to be discounted, but day gate rates marked up 100% is pretty outrageous.

Barber's website does state that ticket prices increase on Oct 10.

I would have thought that this would be rather closer to .. General Chat .. than .. Maintenance, Tips and Hints


As a passing thought that line would have read better for the addition of one word IMO ... Couldn't figure out where to put this----so please don't edit me out.
