Scenery

Very beautiful when the trees have leaves!!! Not just a flat ride... lots of hills.

Drive Enjoyment

The best road to really sweep through turns... 30mph turn ahead signs are in extreme abundance... Another great note is that this road is not frequently traveled, so you don't have to worry too much about traffic

Tourism Opportunities

Since it's only about 100 miles... gas is really the only thing you'd need anyway! There's a gas station or convenience store at every town you come to.

Cont... Try 1827, 1377, Road 470, 2933, 413, 272, 816, 546, 1378, and 3286. Those roads are all a little more exciting, and just South of there. Also, THE MOTORCYCLE OUTPOST rules, but has now Moved to Westminster off of 2862. It is downtown, right next to Big Slick's. Bikers are in abundance at both establishments.

Great route. Good roads, fun, and not much traffic. Stop in Westminster for a burger at Big Slicks & Check out the stuff in the Motorcycle Outpost. Jerry is a good guy.
