    Just moved from WA State


    I just moved to Quincy MA from WA State. There was a pretty active forum over there that was great. I am looking for something similar. I have been riding for about 2 years on the street now. I took the riders safety course, and have been to one track day. The last one of the season at Pacific Raceways in WA. I need to get to more track days. I need to find some good twisties in or around the area and would like to get in on some group rides. I went to may social events that occurred local to where I lived out west. I ride a 03 Kawasaki 636 full yosh tri oval system power commander front suspension revalved by gp suspension and rear gsxr shock revalved by gp and resprung for my weight.

    Seacoast Sport Cycle has some group rides that are pretty fun. The 2008 schedule should be posted up on their website pretty soon!

    Seacoast Sport Cycle, Inc. - Events has some ride reports from 2007!

    Re: Just moved from WA State

    eh, you can find good roads, you just have to take a little bit longer trips to get to them... But, welcome. I also live in Quincy, until May anyway... hit me up once the season starts and we'll get a small group together. DBConz if you didn't notice also lives in Quincy so we'll have a little party

    Welcome to the site, and to New England! If you're willing to travel north a bit, there are many rides that occur in the NH area throughout the season. Check out the rides and events section - people post up all the time. You here for work, school, family, or cause you're nuts?

    Welcome to the forum. I was stationed in Ft. Lewis back in the day. Loved most of WA, just didn't like all the rain, but it is better than snow!.

    Maybe true, but there are, arguably, better places to move to.

    Welcome. You're going to have to go to Western Mass (at least outside the 495 belt) or into New Hampshire for fun roads.

    Well that's a warm welcome!

    There are roads for days in Western Mass and VT.

    If you like getting pulled over, go to NH....but the real fun is in VT and upsate NY.

    Welcome and enjoy your stay!

    Re: Just moved from WA State

    Yea I moved here for work. Yes there are a lot of suicides in WA mostly due to the fact that it is grey all the time. Lots of drizzle and overcast. The climate varys a lot depending on where you are in the state. Plus it is like 6 MA's big.
    I keep forgetting I can get to like 6 states here before I would even be out of WA. Thanks for the good info and welcome.

    Welcome to New England...

    I too lived in Wa. state. Lived just North of Seattle for 11 years and loved it... Gorgeous place to live and the roads were fantastic. The thing I miss the most about Western, Wa. was that I could ride my bike year 'round...

    Stupid question. Is there a spot on the fourm where people have mapped out rides. Good rides through twisties say around 400 mile round trip from quincy.
