DO THE TON Mama Tried #7!! Oct 7-9, 2016 in the Dirty South

No Purple Hearts, No Blue Ribbons
I didn't take many pictures, but here you go....

It all started with a beer:



Then I found this guy at the airport:



You have to love Mr. Barber's sense of Whimsy, he has fun art all over the park:





Yes, that is a Honda Dream (click on the smaller pic for a video):





This dude was incredible:



Dave/Doug monkeying around (again, click for video):



If not for the incredible people I was surrounded by, I would have spent all weekend just like this next to the track:




And in a haze of smoke and exhaust, the weekend was over:



So long Alabama, thanks for all the fish:

Barber 2016 has come to an end and I wanted to take a moment to do a few shout-outs to some folks that really went above and beyond this year.

*E/Mr. E
From setup to teardown and everything in between, you rocked. Even with the task of working the Member Ventures booth, you still made time to work a shift, do store/errand runs, haul coolers, and run me back and forth. I'm so appreciative of your support throughout this process.

*Chris/Redbird
Thank you for providing the snacks for the volunteers. (You guys should thank Chris for feeding your tummies!)
You listened to my incessant ramblings about the prep work leading up to Barber, did setup/teardown, worked a shift, helped with the Member Ventures booth, and made the DTT bike display look fantastic. I could not have done ACB2016 without you- thank you so much.

*Charlie/ricerwannab
Not only did you work a shift and help with teardown, you also shuttled me all over the place, chauffeured us to WaHo at 1am, arrived early and stayed late, and did Ace Corner teardown. Your encouragement and support throughout the planning process are so appreciated. You are amazing and I'm proud to be your bff!

*Eric/deviant & Ash
There are no words to express how appreciative I am for the way you guys busted butt on the Member Ventures booth. Ash, we all would've been rather dehydrated if it wasn't for your water distribution! You guys put in long hours and a lot of work. I'm so happy you were both able to make it- thank you for everything you did.

*Chris/ccrider
You were a tremendous help with the setup/teardown process and I so appreciate you contributing tables and a popup. Thank you for always being willing to pitch in and help.

*Nick/adventurco & Kayla/sealedwithakay
Nick, your bike writeups were beautiful. Thank you for the time and effort you out into designing them for everyone, printing them, and bringing them. Aaaaand you and wonderful Kayla worked a shift to boot. You guys rock!

*Levi/hurco550
For starters, I think you're the best salesman EVER. Watching you run that Member Ventures booth like a boss was a highlight of the weekend for me. I appreciate your friendship and your mad sales skills. Thanks for hooking us up with the pucks too!

*Kiley/Kanticoy & Denise
*Jared/cyclefreak & Melissa

Thank you guys for putting us up, putting up with us, feeding us, and loving us. We sure do love all of you!!

*Tim...
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be a bigger part of Ace Corner 2016. It was the highlight of my year. Can't wait to have you and Dutra here for our 10th DTT anniversary!

To ALL the ACB2016 volunteers...
Will, Levi, Nick, Kayla, Kelly, Patty, Cory, Justin H, Jarret, E, Chris V, Charlie (thank you for treating us to WaHo!), Ted, Charlie O, John, Dean (thank you for the extra parking pass!!), Garry, Eddie (you rocked the shuttle service, dude!), Justin S...

You guys made this year the best ever. It was an honor and a privilege to work with you all.

Last but not least, for those of you that submitted Bike Writeups... thank you a million times over. I loved watching everyone getting recognition for the builds.
Kiley (2 submissions), Chris V, Nick, Murray, Levi, Ted, Jared (2 submissions), Jordan, Chris C, Cory, Al, Charlie
Special congrats to Jordan, winner of Best Japanese Cafe Racer!

Love you guys!!
I can't speak for everyone here, but I'm gonna try. Jenn deserves a huge thanks for everything she did this year for the barber vintage festival. We don't know the half of what went on behind the scenes and before the show, and we all saw her busting her tail during. Big thanks for everything you do, not just for barber, but for all the DTT events. Just wouldn't be the same without good ol haircuttergirl. Your the best Jenn. And again thanks!!!!!!

+1000 Jenn you are like the DTT anchor. You work really hard to make us all feel at home, welcome and you organized the shit out of Ace corner. Next year can only be better since you'll be in charge again. Great job. I hope next year to be more than moral support to you at the event. We do all love you for who you are and what you do to make us all feel like family.

Ted did a fantastic job on this. I didn't even recognize it compared to the before pic!


CharlieT, I dig this. It's one sexy ride.


My girl, Bree, part of the brains behind Ace Corner. She works her tail off for this event and I'm proud to call her my friend.

There was a whole lotta wrenchin' going on this year. Here's Charlie, Levi/hurco550, E






;D


FRIDAY

More of the DTT setup...


So proud of all the DTT featured builders. The writeups came out awesome, thanks to Nick aka adventurco!








One of my favorite moto babes! So glad my girl Stella was able to make Barber this year.


Presh.


Mr. E Machines (E) and Utilitarian Art & Machine (Eric) rocked the house at the DTT Member Ventures booth. These guys busted their tails prepping for the booth and selling their goods at Barber. So proud of E and Eric.
Special shout out to Eric's wife, Ash. She went way above and beyond helping in the Member Ventures booth. She's an amazing woman- you're a lucky man, Eric!

The entire DTT setup


Love Sofi of GT Moto. If you haven't checked em out, you should...


Mark Wilsmore, the face of Ace Cafe London. If you ever get a chance to have a chat with Mark, you should. He has the most interesting (and colorful!) stories.

Huge shout out to Graham. There would be no Ace Corner without his event coordination skills.


Amanda, just after finding out she is the proud new owner of the beautiful CB400f that's been living at Kiley's.


Congrats, Amanda!


Weldon Jack, ACB2016 Barber. These guys are awesome!


Jared/cyclefreak's beautiful wife Melissa is always a joy. My favorite memory of her is from Thaw 2015 when she outdid the fellas in a pushup contest. ;D


Herm, Dime City Cycles. He's the man! A big thank you to him and his team for all they did for ACB2016.


Beware of Stella. She'll swipe your Fireball even if she already has a beer ;D ;D She's tiny but fierce!


Adam (Ace Cafe London) was hilarious on his golf cart. Reminded me of Mr. Toad's wild ride. He celebrated his birthday by shuttling us back and forth all weekend. Haha
Than you to everyone who chipped in on tips for him and Sam. They were very appreciative!
