suggestions needed - one day cruising routes in eastern MA & southern NH?

Insterested to hear what your favorite cruise routes are...

Thinking about doing RTE 127 north shore sea coast one of these Sunday's to take in the view. Maybe Beverly to Rockport and back.

Wondering if there's some great cruise that can be recommended to myself and other riders in the area.

Route 121 into hampstead N.H. from Haverhill Ma. is nice. It then goes up into Auburn N.H. to Lake Massebessic (pardon if poorly spelled) From there, any road east/northeast is a pretty nice ride.

Posting might be a little late, but the best ride north of Boston is the NH Seacoast.

Depending on your choices of route to the border, pick up Rt 1a at the border at Salisbury. Go over the Hampton Bridge, and stay on the coast.

Just an awesome ride, all the way to outskirts of Portsmouth. Not for mid-day on weekend "beach" days during the summer.

The whole seacoast area is great riding, with smooth roads, and MC aware cagers.

X2 on NH coastal ride, I also like riding on the Kancamagus Highway. Rt. 16 North to Rt. 112 west. Once you get over the mountains to Lincoln Rt. 3 north thru Franconia Notch. Follow Rt. 3 to Rt 302 east thru Crawford Notch. Once you get back to Rt 16 go south thru Conway and then back home. If you are looking for an alternate route south take Rt. 153 which runs along Rt 16. All in all a beautiful day trip.

+ 1 on the Rt 153 !!!

Went out coupla Saturday's ago from lake house near Poor Peoples Pub. Was going to do a circle. Rt 153 to 25 to Dunkies in Ossippee, then back on Rt 16. 40 mins tops !

But, got to Rt 25, and continued on 153 instead, into Conway. 90% good surface, no traffic.

With lunch time approaching, I figured Maple Sesame Scollops would be good, so went accross Kanc to the Woodstock Inn & Brew Pub !

Was cold going accross ! So, rather than go back, went down Rt 3 to Plymouth, then headed towards rt 25 on 175A and 175. Then onto Rt 25. Don't take 25a which is a left turn short cut into Center Harbour - road sux - continue on Rt 25.

Across 25 to Rt 109. Down 109 to Wolfboro, and back to the PPP.

180 miles little traffic, great ride !!
