Just Another Motorcycle Road Trip in Massachusetts

Motorcycle Road Trip

A Motorcycle Road Trip can take an hour or ten days, depending on where you are headed, but as Jim and I like to say, any Motorcycle Road Trip is a good trip, as long as you are prepared ahead of time.

If you follow our Travels with Harley Blog, we have been sharing some great examples of the perfect Motorcycle Road Trip and this week we’re headed to Massachusetts.

Motorcycle Road Trip

From the thick forests in the Berkshire Mountains in western Massachusetts, to the huge bluffs in Cape Code, Massachusetts really does have it all. You can hit the small towns, or spend a night in Boston for great shopping and dining. The Mayflower landed in Massachusetts followed by the Revolutionary War and the Witch Hunts.

Motorcycle Road Trips

Through the Country to the Castle is a great Motorcycle Road Trip that has mountains, ocean and country roads that take you to Castle Island all in just 36 miles. You’ll go through Blue Hills Mountain where you will see amazing views of Boston and the surrounding areas on winding roads that are invigorating and well paved. Quincy Shore has a couple of great eateries including Tony’s Clam Shop, which has a great selection of seafood platters.

The Country Whip Inc

Scenic Route 105 is another great Motorcycle Road Trip in Massachusetts that you will not want to miss. You will drive through orchards and farms taking you through Acushnet ending up in historic Marion. There will be lots of 90-degree right and left turns. When you get to Acushnet, stop at The Country Whip Drive Inc, and try a lobster roll and some fried clams.

Sams Pizzaria and Cafe

If you don’t have all day, but feel like getting out for a great little Motorcycle Road Trip, take the 23 mile Route 66 to Northampton. You’ll ride past mountains, farmlands, and state parks on good quality roads with lots of curves and hills. Once you get into Northampton, you will find a lot of great places to eat and shop, two of my favorite activities. Try to find something with outside tables, such as Sam’s Pizzeria and Café where you can enjoy a gourmet pizza washed down with an icy cold beer. Sam’s has live music Wednesday through Sunday and is open until 3:00 am on the weekends, not that Jim and I are ever up that late, or early!

Motorcycle Road Trip

Jim and I love Massachusetts and hope to get in another Motorcycle Road Trip for another Travels with Harley adventure soon. When that happens, we will definitely keep you posted!
