This road is called the Alice's Restaurant
road, though it's not about Alice and the restaurant, so it's
not the real name of the road, that's just the name of the
restaurant but that's why we called it the Alice's Restaurant
road. Now it all started many years ago when riders went up
along the spine of the Santa Cruz Mountains for the good
Pavement and Twistiness and to get away from the traffic and the
crowds and the heat of the Bayatopolis metropolitan area. And
ridin' along like that, they’d get some decent Scenery when they
get up there, though sometimes all you can see are trees.
'Course it bein' so close to a great urban conglomeration and
all, that kinda weighs on the feeling of Remoteness. And maybe
they’d be a tad disappointed that the Engineering and Character
aren't perfect, not that they aren't pretty good but some might
think they could be better. Now friends, you gotta remember that
there's lots of fast ridin' goin' on up here and you just know
that kind of thing attracts Officer Obie and, well, he might put
you in the back of his patrol car and take you down to the
police officer station for bein' so brave and honest about how
fast you were goin'. So, be careful you don’t find yourself in a
pickle. ‘Cuz you always want to ride on your motorsickle.
