    Any rough roads
    The rough roads start roughly at the south-eastern corner of Vermont and extend up towards the north-west corner, ending somewhere in Canada. Seriously though, the roads in Vermont are pretty bad right now.

    Edit: you'll be fine, just keep it in mind before hauling ass through any corners with limited visibility, since there might be some gnarly frost heaves waiting for you on the exit. This is the case for a few of the corners on the App Gap as well.

    I fixed that for you.

    If you want some real fun, hit up Rt 242 in northern Vermont, from Montgomery up past Jay.

    That was a cruel joke. Rt 242 is in such catastrophically bad condition that I actually laughed at it when I rode it a month or two ago. I wouldn't be surprised if cars are breaking hard parts on that road.

    It's a shame, too, because it's a nice twisty road. It would be awesome if they repaved it.

    But unfortunately the same can be said for a great many other roads in this state. Vermont seems to have given up on road maintenance completely.
