    do you think it will cause a split in "cafe" bikes?
    like people will start building different bikes for going to the ace cafe as they would for going to Starbucks?

    I'm not too concerned. I've been riding what I've wanted to ride,,, since I started to ride. So how is an eatery/watering hole going to change that?
    At least the decor might be a little more interesting than the typical crap you find at an Applebee's/Chili's/ Unos'/etc/etc.

    I dunno, you guys can hate on the posers and hipsters all you want...but at least a new kind of motorcyclist is becoming a bit more mainstream then the typical full dresser hog types. The more people we attract to the industry the better it is for us all. I'm with tabby....I'd rather drop my lunch dollars at a place that at least pretends to give a shit about motorcyclists.

    Id go instead of applebees if the food was at least okay and it had cool decorations like fairly nice looking bikes why not? Its another place to eat. Who really cares. Theres sellouts/cashins in any hobby. In music punk has been a fashion statement for the masses for the past 10 years. I bet die hard celtics fans get angry because jerseys cost an arm and a leg because everyone wants one. I know I get mad when a "ricer" with a body kit and fart can rips up and down the street and since I drive a honda I must be just like him. Hooray somewhere else to eat that kinda sorta pertains to my hobby, and at least is good for a laugh. A different laugh than my underpowered cheap(well it was supposed to be a year ago) decrepid cb350 gives me, but at least its a laugh. I hope they serve pie.
