Massachusetts Motorcycle Roads and Trips

Great motorcycle rides in Massachusetts (MA) vary from roads in the heavily forested Berkshire Mountains in the west to the roads that follow the path of sandy beaches and massive bluffs of Cape Cod to the east. Hiking, camping, and small town sightseeing & shopping abound around the state and the Boston area offers world class amenities. The state also features some of the country's most prominent historical landmarks: where the Mayflower landed bringing the first European settlers, where the first shot of the Revolutionary War took place, location of the famed Witch Trials, and the location where Henry David Thoreau (Walden) developed and published some of his most profound thoughts.
