We're just back from a great trip to northwest Arkansas to ride motorcycles with the Triumph Rockets Owners association.This is the Tenth (X) RAA expedition,.
The group meets twice a year in places with good riding...like Montrose, Colorado; Maggie Valley, NC, and here at The Hub in Marble Falls, Arkansas. The Hub is part of the former site of Dogpatch USA, the Lil' Abner theme park that ran from the Sixties to the Nineties. Rumor has it that it will reopen soon, but that's been the rumor for a long, long time.
Here's a good article about the place and the people who run it.
Here are some of our friends from the group:

You've heard it said that motorcycle folks are some of the nicest around...and it's true. And one of the things I really appreciate about hanging out with them is that they are from every walk of life, people I would not otherwise meet or get to be friends with. Our lives can be so insular, I think it's a terrific opportunity to spread out and learn more.
