Dodging the Roadkill: Barber Motorsports Park – First Impression

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyLeeds, AL – I had heard nothing but great things about this place when I announced I was going to visit.  Even the bikers I met along the way down I-65 told me I was in for a treat.

They were right.

I cruised down to Birmingham this afternoon and after fighting the wind and several road projects, I pulled into the Barber Motorsports Park.  It is a sprawling facility, cut out of the Alabama countryside.  

It’s the home of the worlds largest motorcycle museum, which I plan to visit tomorrow, but today, I went to the race track.
