Now you know
Now you know what it's like to find a little slice of Heaven on Earth. To echo other sentiments; even if you had to travel 12 hours or more to find it, you'd have awesome rides and scenery on the way and real family when you got there.
If there was ever a place you'd like to hang as long as possible, the HUB is definitely it. Different from most bike resorts you've ever stayed in, with management you couldn't stand [or understand, for that matter] you'll be shocked by how Debbie and Randall seem like old friends the first day you meet them. They aren't acting, they are good bikers who enjoy the company of good bikers. They don't begrudgingly tolerate bikers; they embrace us, literally from sunup till sundown and late into the night around the fire, even though we dare to talk, laugh and make noise. Our celebrations and pipes don't piss them off, they make them smile.
Next, you think maybe a place that sounds like this is overblown, overpriced and too far from the rides, since that seems to be the norm when it comes to B&B's, bike stuff, fishing resorts and stuff like that in general. At the HUB, they've tried to keep things simple, "downhome" and very cost effective. Scooters restaurant has been kept homey, friendly and has some of the best food you're going to find and it doesn't cost much either.
Yes, it seems like me and everyone else who's been there is bragging constantly about the owners, the location, the food and the bonfire. I can tell you that if anything, it's actually an understatement because the experience is deeply moving in its elemental simplicity. A natural place for bikers in the middle of nature and some of the best twisties in the entire SouthWest. There is no hype here and you won't be disappointed, until you have to leave.
Returning to the HUB to ride and bonfire with my friends was the goal that got me through a long period of Hell during cancer treatments. It really is the kind of place I'd like to spend a LOT of time. Ginny and I can't wait to get back, hopefully for the BVR in late May. If you haven't been, GET THERE. If you have, we hope to see you again.
Dean & Ginny
Enjoying every mile I can.
