For those that have been to, or live near Barber, where are some good places to stay? What should I do with my bike when we are away from the track? This will be my first track day where I can't go home and sleep. I am unsure about leaving my bike at the track, but some of you may be able to relieve me of this. We do not have an enclosed trailer, so that is the problem. I thought about camping at the track, and sending the women-folk to go civilized in a hotel, but I don't know about their camping facilities, showers, electricity, etc... Thanks to those that can help.
Yea there's a decent motel on the same exit as the track... best inn I think. I don't think you have to worry about your bike too much there, it's well lit and you could park in the back where nobody could see it from the road. I'll let you keep your bike in my garage if you're worried about it, but I got nowhere for you to sleep... sorry.
When's your track day? I'm going to the Talladega GP track on 7/9... first time on the track.
Not sure on the pricing though, about 4 miles up the interstate in Moody there is Days Inn, Comfort Inn, and I think a new Holiday Inn Express. Leeds/Moody are outside birmingham and typical interstate type places (not much there once you get a mile from the interstate). Inverness/280 is a traffic nightmare most of the time as it's part of Birmingham and it's a good bit farther from the track than the others.
