Vintage Days @ Mid-OH

Went up to Vintage Days on Friday and boy this economy seems to have hit hard. The junk pile appeared to be half the size it normally is. Vintage racers were down 70% this year. The paddocks and vendor areas looked like an abandondoned parking lot. The crowd seemed to be the same and the vendors that were there were very busy with test rides. All in all it was kind of disappointing. Didnt even see that many LT's there. Oh well there is always next year.

Re: Vintage Days @ Mid-OH

Thanks for the report, Jim. Too bad it didn't live up to its reputation.

I was going to go this year but couldn't make it. Maybe next year!

Re: Vintage Days @ Mid-OH

Another factor may have been the MOA rally and the RA rally being so close, at least for the beemer folks. Some people that may not have gone to the rallies if they were across the country and gone to the vintage days instead. Only so much time off and could not do both. Then again, maybe not.
