Thanks Bones for western Mass advice

I live near the Quabin in central Mass, and there is some pretty good places to ride around hear, but some of the routes you suggested in another post put me in awe. great twisties great scenery very rare to stay at a given elevation for long. I logged 200 miles out that way today and i still cant wipe the smile off my face. my favorite section had to be on rt. 116 between rt. 5 and rt. 112 total nirvana.

um, I'm getting the urge to check those roads myself..... It would be a bit of a haul for me but your glowing (pun intended) approval has me thinking it would be worth it.

Hey Brothercannon i am sure you have some roads up there in Vt. that are worth gloating about up in the green mountains and such I know the scenery is pretty spectacular between the green mountains and the adirondacks.

Glowcat13, maybe you can show me those roads next weekend when we ride.

BTW, I just saw your pic in your avatar. We are going to look like quite the pair. I have the hi-viz Scorpion as well plus the grey/hiviz Olympia Stealth one-piece. I'm glad your bike is green at least. Otherwise we'd look like book ends.

If glowcat13 was on my bike then it would be bookends.

I think the best road in VT is 7 miles from my house. Here's a video of it.
