I brought my daughter to a concert at the House of Blues last Thursday. My God we've got smoother dirt roads in NH than in Boston. You'd think with all the taxes down there, they'd at least fill the potholes

Then there's the driver's Holy Sh#t. I'm glad I brought my old 2001 2500 plow truck. They get out of my way, when I'm in that rig lol. They realise pretty quick idc if it gets a few more dents.... lol

Anywhere in the US actually.
A friend and I took a MC trip from Boston to Cape Breton a few years back. We entered Canada through Calais. No sooner are we riding in Canada and we notice how much more courteous the drivers were than in US. When the highway widened into a passing lane, people got over to the right if they weren't passing or if they did they would move over to let the faster passers go by. That doesn't happen here.
And plenty of times people would move over to let us by without malice, even a friendly wave. The speed limit was 100 kph but we took it as 100 mph. LOL. Bad, I know.

On our way home all was good until we crossed back to the US. We could instantly feel what a-holes American drivers are, defensive and angry. I'm not claiming innocence here, I'm no angel but I've gotten better.  :821:

They don't call us Massholes for nothing.  :164:
If you can't make Jap Bike Mikes, which is mainly a swap meet,
definitely plan on Rice-O-Rama in the Fall. It's the best Japanese bike show in the North East. On a good day there are hundreds of bikes on show with people selling parts and half the show is checking out the bikes people ride there. It's an all day event.

Watch out for Route 1 near the Mystic Tobin bridge if you're coming in from that direction. They're staring some sort of road construction. It's going to mess up traffic everywhere north of Boston.
Whatcha doing in Boston?
