This road is superb...I will admit my bias towards it though as it happens to be my favorite local ride. The best part of the trip is the southern portion. So if you can only ride part of it, definitely go with the Salem to Winona part. The road around Eminence is the most technically challenging. The corners are not really that tight, but they are very long, linked together, banked, and have several elevation changes which together can make holding the 55mph speed limit tedious in some places. The only thing that you should be aware of is that some of the locals have years of experience on this route and are comfortable with driving just way too fast, so be prepared for an angry large pickup or even a bus pulling a load of canoes to be on your rear-end for a portion of the trip; even if you think you are Valentino Rossi.
