Barber Motorsports Park: Some Boys Have All The Luck

I blew Kenny a kiss as the black limo drove away from our house last night. The windows were tinted so dark, I couldn’t tell if he saw it or not. I went on blind faith that the love was received on the other side of the glass. He was on his way to the airport, flying to Birmingham, Alabama.

Kenny’s trip to Barber Motorsports Park was set in motion at Christmas time. Each year at Christmas I wrestle with the same issues. What do you give someone that doesn’t need anything? What would really make his heart sing? For 2009 I decided that it would be the chance to ride at Barber. He’s attending the Kevin Schwantz 2-Day Motorcycle Riding School. It seemed like the perfect idea.

A few years ago, he attended Keith Code’s 2-day California Superbike School at Willow Springs and came home recharged and full of excitement about what he’d learned. Given the track at Barber, the museum and yes getting instruction from Kevin – I hope this trip is something special for him as well. He deserves it and then some.

This morning I received one lone photo from his mobile phone:

And so, his day begins…
I’m probably more excited about it than he is!

    Hi Fuzzy,
    I’ve been a lurker on your site for a little bit, I had an 06 Speed Triple that’s how I found your site. I enjoy reading your adventures on the Triple and all your write ups. I just had to post to let you know that you give the BEST gives. I’m sure Kenny will enjoy this one too among all the others in the past! Can’t wait to read all about it.
