The Founders!!

Uncle Roy and BC are brothers who grew up in Mississippi.  Their addiction to motorsickles began in their pre-teens, and continues today.  For years they were both mainly commuter and weekend riders.  As fate would have it their first extended motorsickle trip was from Florida to Sturgis and back, in 1983.  From that ride, the die, as they say, was cast.  Over the next 19 years, many road trips followed, both together, and solo, covering countless miles.  Roy's 89 Softail has over 250K miles; BC's '90 Softy is nearing 200K.  Both have owned several other bikes over the years, so you get an idea of how their lifetime mileage might stack up.

Being perpetually on a budget, the boys usually camped out, seeking more affordable lodging.  But not too many years ago, bikers were often unwelcome at traditional camp-grounds.  If you did get in, you were made to feel like the proverbial "turd in th punchbowl".  Worse yet, you had to share your seven square feet of overpriced, muddy dirt with Ultra-Citizens, and their nosey, noisy, spawn.  As for biker camaraderie in theses places?  Well, it was rarer than an honest politician.

It's a given that at day's end, scooter types want to kick back, discuss the ride, talk scooter talk, relax and party with others who share the worship of wind and wheels.  To this end, in 1989, Roy, BC and two other of
their brothers, decided to build a mountain haven EXCLUSIVELY for motorsickle people.
