Wow an upscale retreat for podiatrists, stockbrokers and other RUBs to trailer their bikes too. Count me out.

What the heck is the "New demographic"?? I ride my bike to get away from smarmy, whining, I'm-so-special, folks. In my opinion, motorcycling isn't supposed to be "up-scale". It's supposed to be gritty, a bit dangerous and sometimes solitary. If I wanted to spend my hard earned money (and not to brag, but I make a lot of it) I would just ride my bike to wherever I wanted to go, pull up to the door and walk in. I like being unique in the hotel lobby. I use my bike to start conversations and as a vehicle (pun intended) to meet non-motorcyclists.



Just go for a ride. It's the ride not the destination, folks! This is a chick resort and a resort for guys who can't leave the missus at home. Count me out.

I think I'm counted out before I could opt in. Doesn't look like a working man's option.



Onsite track would be amazing though

I think I'll just stick to riding backroads. Most of the people I've met at luxury resorts just suck. They're too interested in showing everyone else just how well of they are. Everyone has their head so far up their own arse that nobody notices anything but themselves. I'd rather look at a steam.

Make that "stream". Thank you ever so much.

Although steam would probably be preferable too!

Dang. A resort like this is bad for business. These people won't be much of a market for the stick-on bugs and spray-on road grime that you can sell at Sturigs.



Seriously, though I'd never go to such a place I have no problem with it. Otherwise they might be cluttering up my favorite roads. And, like it or not, more "upscale" m/cers means more political power. That can't hurt. Especially when Sean is singlehandedly making the case for horsepower limits.....

That does it. I'm packing 40 lbs of beans and fatback on the DT1 and heading for parts unknown...and if I run across any "Upscale" bikers I hope the noxious 15.1 mix of Pep Boys Pure as Gold gags them right off their upscale motorcycles.

A big bucket of steam. Kind of like a bucket of prop wash but different.

I'm more partial to 50 feet of chow line.
