At a Glance

During the Roaring Twenties, Centralia’s chief of police was a regular at the poker table of its famous Olympic Club. In fact, the relationship between this “gentlemen’s resort” and the authorities was so tight that the place not only acquired an old police motorcycle side car to add to its turn of the century décor but actually thrived during Prohibition. Ah yes, to serve and protect. What you’ll appreciate about this DH — equally hospitable to the needs of both lady and gentleman motorcyclists — is that it, like the club, has kept its traditional ambience, in spite of the redecorating impulses of nearby Pugetopolis. It doesn’t have middle-of-nowhere Remoteness but at least this is a result of farm buildings rather than towns or subdivisions. And the consistent Twistiness played out through the farm and forest Scenery of four different creek valleys add up to the best pot of curves for miles around. For a tertiary road, Pavement is surprisingly good — smoother than even the best bootleg hootch. The equally fine Engineering shouldn’t give you any hangovers, either. Of course, we have no idea what your relations with speed tax officialdom are. But, given local history, if you are stopped and cited, you might suggest double or nothing on a hand of poker. Everybody in?
