Worcester is one of the more populated cities within the state of Massachusetts. Just west of Boston, Worcester is quite similar in many ways. It has a great nightlife and many attractions for the daytime crowd as well. Any motorcyclist would be thrilled to be cruising on a bike throughout the exciting city.
