I like what they've done with various W650's.

Creating an environment
 
It is human nature to want or create an environment that reflects their interests. Great environments tend to develop over time. If not they always seem to have the air of contrivance. Maybe it will become a bikers Mecca in another 25 years or so. I can't help but like the idea regardless. The boutique descriptive makes it sound a little faggy if you ask me.

It's truly a cool place. I got to visit it during a follow-up report on the facility/business we'll be publishing in a couple of weeks. A wide variety of interesting items on display or for sale, plus an on-premises cafe that brews up a great cuppa expresso.

Vintage bikes and audio, live music, food and beer. Sounds good to me!

The girl and I want to ride up.

It's right near our old hometowns. (me Santa Monica, her Hawthorne)

The problem with cool places is that they get discovered by the "cool" crowd. Then they ruin it. Park City is a good example. Jackson Hole. The Rock Store.

The squidlies and rubbies will ruin this too now that it's being revealed broadly.

Good point. If I want to show up, it is over, as I am decidedly uncool!

Still love those 70's era MacIntosh amplifiers shown in the photo though, with their blue VU meters...

Are there hyper-pale skinned women with straight black hair, Wayfarers, black jeans and tall black boots hanging around? You know, the ones with the surly look that says "don't even think about checking out my side-boob or I'll kick your ass" while they carefully pose to expose the maximum side-boob.

It seems like that sorta place.
