The ride is a celebration of old Route 66. In fact, it IS old Route 66. This sign, visible on the way back to ABQ remains in its beautiful, slowly deteriorating glory. The motel itself has been converted to apartments.
By the way, don't try riding out Central from Nob Hill unless it is very early on a Sunday morning. The "best" route goes up Ridgecrest to Idlewilde to Southern, Utah, Trumbull, past the Costco, through the Trailer Park, then Singing Arrow to 4-Hills and out the Canyon. It sounds complicated but if you think you are lost, just head uphill.
