Coming from interstate 20 heading east from Birmingham Ala, take the Leeds exit. You will see at the stop to your right the sign for the motorsport museum which is about a mile in that direction. If you go straight ahead past the chevron station at the stop, you will go through the town of leeds and about 3 miles through town you will see hwy 25 south sign to your right. hold on and enjoy about a 9 mile thrill ride ending at 29 dreams motorcycle resort right on hwy 25, have fun .
On this route you will find several homes and plenty of wooded areas ... very dense in some areas. Overall a nice scenic drive.
The road is nicely paved and marked and has numerous switchbacks and horseshoe curves, nice up and down hill grades with straight-aways to enjoy. If you have ever heard of "The Dragon" (AKA Deal's Gap) in Carolina this my friends is the mini dragon, without having to go all the way to Carolina. What a blast my girlfriend and I had in the curves and swithbacks. I scraped the pegs several times with the enjoyment of hitting the straight away running it through the gears, just in time to break it down to lay into another curve what a blast!
Upon getting to the Leeds exit from interstate 20 two miles ahead is the motorsport museum with the greatest collection of motorcycles you have ever seen. Five floors of bikes and several dozen race cars inside. Go through leeds about 3 miles until you see the 25 south sign and ride the mini dragon to 29 Dreams Motorcycle Resort, a great place to visit and hang out, food, cabins and lots of bikers.
