    New Motard rider


    Hi all - New to riding in New England, not new to riding.
    After a few years off the horse decided to pull the trigger on a DRZ and now looking for good roads to stretch her legs on.
    Any recommendations? I'm in the Lunenburg/Sherley/Lancaster area.

    Not a bad idea, although going to Denver would be quite the ride.

    I park my bike at work about 200 yards from the long ass runway at Westover. The temptation is real, but still not worth getting shot for.

    i'll see if i still have my sumo maps from the central MA area. we used to have a few great loops out around the Quabbin and back.

    although, searching for these routes will make me ache for my old SXV.

    welcome and you are not too far away from some good riding.

    Look to get onto 119 from Ma to Brattleboro Vt then rt9 into Vt. then rt8 to north adams and rt2 back home. One of the best routes I’ve taken around here.

    Lots of roads in north eastern CT are great riding. Rt197 from Dudley to Bigelow Hollow. Check out Vanilla Bean on the corner of 169 and 44 in Pomfret CT. It's a great motorcycle lunch stop on the weekends. Tons of great riding in that area. Go on Google maps and plan a route between 244 and 171. Quarry Road and the like are good starting points. Also those roads are barely patrolled. You can ride around in that area and have a blast. The riding is close to Skyline Blvd aka Alice's in Woodside type of roads.

    That's awesome. I rode Alice's many times, although Mines Rd was my happy place.
    Thanks all again.
