On the way out of Salem is the Tye- Dye Shop—a funky shack straight out of the 60s. And hey, have you been noticing all the bike traffic ‘round here, especially café racers? I’d say that was a sign, wouldn’t you? Cruising down Route 19, the road rises then falls, dips then climbs, twists, turns and sweeps and then runs straight. It’s followed by a series of roller coaster hills, some shallow and some deep, but all of them rising in elevation. I could swear the engineers designed this road just for motorcycles. A great number of the turns are banked and a lot of the straights have whoops (a series of shallow dips) built in. I’m wondering if it’s even legal to have this much fun? Unfortunately, there are all kinds of vehicles lumbering around on this path, so caution is the order of the day. The crooks in a lot of the roller coaster hills are so deep that you’ll feel like the bike is going to launch as it crests the hill. Man, what a dream! Just remember to ride within your skill level! The roads up to this point have been very smooth and gravel-free, but they have their share of road kill.
