Damn that is sad to hear. We stopped in there last September for breakfast on our annual Rattlesnake Run.

Hope they rebuild and open for business.

I bet if every motorcyclist who ever had a nice refreshing stop there donated one dollar, they would have a decent rebuild fund started.

it's like Puerto Rico or the Banks in Florida - maybe rebuilding isn't always the best option.

Huge loss for sure.

I remember a ride some years ago when a group of us.. SteveO, Scootergirl, slow Eric, Buz, ZXmurphy, racerone, and myself stopped there.

We came down Rattlesnake on our way toward Enterprise. We were just taking off our helmets and the guy came outside with a pitcher of ice water and a handful of glasses.

Talk about cool.

I sincerely hope they are able to, and WANT to rebuild.

Bummer. I do wonder if there is financial incentive for anyone to want to rebuild. If there was enough steady business, someone will likely want to give it a shot.

Looks like at least right now, they're planning to rebuild!! Looks like it will very much come down to what insurance pays out

Hope rekindles for fans of Boggan's Oasis | |

It's baaaaack!

No kidding. A couple weeks ago, my mom and her boyfriend took a roadtrip down rattlesnake (WTF, mom...really?) She mentioned they stopped at the bottom for a milkshake. I called B.S., but was intrigued.

After a short convo, it seems they are back in business! First nice day, imma ride down and check it out. Might not do it on two, depending on the weather. I'm sure my wife would be down for a milkshake...if not for the winding curvy road.

I shall report back.

Good News!

They are open and the place looked great. Road down this morning for breakfast and actually two other guys on Victory's were already there. Waitress said we were the first bikes of the season she has seen. The road is in good shape, they need the business.

The thing about reviving old threads is that it can give the wrong impression. I saw this one at the top and went "oh, no, not again!"
