Yes every now and then we do find a section of road that just puts a big smile on our facers. Today I went over the border in New Hampshire to do my lake loop after work, and 2/3 of my ride were on roads that were about as good as they get around here. Of course reality set in once I cross back into Massachusetts.

Aye. I've been going a bit out of my way on my commute for the last month to ride a quarter mile of smooth pavement. After all the lousy pavement and potholes, my entire body relaxes when I hit that street!

It's so green out there! Some of the roads out here change dramatically county by county.
