We’ve been going to the Barber Vintage Festival since its 2005 inception, and each year we’re blown away by how much bigger and better it gets. And 2011 was no exception. Perfect weather drew thousands of attendees Friday to the Expo area, where the Motorcycle Classics tent was set up along with the Antique Motorcycle Club of America, vendors and more.

Sponsored by Moto Guzzi, Saturday’s Motorcycle Classics Vintage Motorcycle Show was a huge success, featuring 61 classic bikes, including 42 Moto Guzzis. Yet more Guzzis took advantage of our MG Parking Corral, which was filled with more than 100 cool rides. Guest judges for our show were motorcycle journalist Alan Cathcart, Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum Technical Director Brian Slark, the National Motorcycle Museum’s Mark Mederski and Moto Guzzi brand manager Rick Panattieri. If you keep missing this one, don’t; it’s the best show going. MC
