The world's largest small bore event is back! June 4-6 at the 880 acre Barber Motorsports Park. Great routes, road racing, drag racing, stunt lot, parade laps, Moto-soccer, Creek Bottom Classic off-road racing, hill climbing, bike shows, swap meet, industry wide displays and support, games, demos, prizes, food, and the world's largest motorcycle museum to get started... More details coming soon.

Thank you for not calling it the Smokey mountain crawl this year. That continues to live in in the proper location, Tennessee!

We didn’t call it that last year, nor should anyone else, as that was our event, and please don’t start down the road of bashing one event for another. Helps no one, or the small bore community in the least....

you did the first year and received much deserving hate over it on the socials, then threatened others for using the name like you owned it LOL. Both events are going to be great im sure.

We used both as it was a transition year, so the enthusiast would understand it was a continuation of the brand we had built, and yes, we do own it. We worked full time for 4 years to make the best event in the country, so I have to disagreed with you on "much deserved hate". There's no room for hate in having good events to attend, but a small part of the internet would rather troll than ride. Again, that doesn't further to scene, which has always been our focus.

I hope to make it to this event this year. I was really bummed that it got canceled last year, but I completely understand, given the circumstances. I wanted to do some parade laps around the Barber track! After watching the MotoAmerica race there in 2019, I wanted to experience the track from a different perspective. Looks awesome.

I’m going to be really busy for the next six months, so I will have to force myself to break away from what I’m working on. Maybe I can squeeze in one day of fun. Maybe Ninelives17 will be there...???

In all honesty, the concept of parade laps didn't overly excite me, then we did it... It's AWESOME to lap that place. Pretty sure the couple hundred others that did the parade laps felt the same, and that's only one of 20 cool things to do... Hope to see you guys there.

$40 is worth it just to see the museum. That place is awesome. To anybody on the fence, you will not regret it.

It's funny how many times I've heard "I don't care about a museum", then watch the JAWS DROP when they walk in the door.... If you know, you know. See you there.

Swing by the TB Parts swap meet, June 4&5 at Barber Small Bore...
It’s tempting to bring the mountain of take off parts from my Grom and give them away...lol. They take up so much space.

A little over a month to go. I hope the weather is good. I watched an Indy Car race on TV recently from Barber. That track is so nice. The speed those Indy Cars go around that track is just about terrifying.
