There are actually two museums in Molson the first one you see whilst traveling into the town is on your right hand side and it is a display of old farming implements and machinery. It's well worth visiting to see how our ancestors used machinery...More

Since I'm not a motorcycle rider, I can't answer the question from experience, but the road is paved the entire way and I would think that it would be a good ride.
