Will be even more to see!! Now you have an excuse to go for the first time or even for returning. Link: http://blog.al.com/businessnews/2012/01/barber_motorsports_museum_expa.html BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- George Barber, who built the Barber Motorsports Park and Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum with tens of millions of dollars of his own money, expects to complete plans for a 100,000 square-foot museum expansion this year and break ground in 2012. The new building will be built on the inside of the racetrack and will be connected to the existing museum by an enclosed bridge over the track. You'll be able to stand in the walkway and watch cars and motorcycles race below, he said this week. The existing museum is 140,000 square feet and has space to display about half of Barber's mammoth bike collection, which is widely viewed as the world's best. __________________ “There is only one reason for pavement and that is to get to dirt.” - “King” Richard Burleson

This is great news. The Barber Museum is one of those places that, once there, you just don’t want to end. Actually, the entire Barber Complex, of which the museum is the centerpiece, is first class and they seem to keep making it better every year.
Teaser for those who’ve not visited. __________________ 2019 KLX650
