    Myles Standish state park


    Wow, I didn't even know it was possible for roads like this to exist in Massachusetts, never mind only an hour from my house. I had never heard of this place discussed on any of the popular motorcycle route websites/logs. Vast open straights with a ton of twisties...all flawlessly paved

    Standish is fun, just be careful I have seen Staties/Epolice in there and people tend to ignore the center yellow a bit because of the lack of shoulders. Other than that it's a great rip.

    I'm not sure which way you are coming from Foxboro but Long Pong Road in Plymouth (you can get on it near the BBC) is a good ride that takes you just about to Myles.

    "flawlessly paved" is not a term we're familiar with in these parts

    There was a cavernous pothole across the road they filled twice already this spring, I'm pretty sure someone actually stole the tar out of it because it was completely empty the day after it got filled, wtf?!

    I have observed this strange phenomenon myself several times this year and thought I was just going crazy. One day I'll notice the hole, the next it'll be filled, and the day after the gaping hole is back again

    If you can get to Blue Hills at like 10am on a Tues/Weds it isn't too bad and you can get a couple passes in too. Otherwise it's so crowded

    its a very small part of the sssl (secret south shore loop)

    back in the olden days the pavement was good and the bike trails were fun
