Good driving roads in RI/South Eastern MA

Just wondering if anyone knows of any good driving roads in the area, looking for some twisty backroads.

Recently I took a ride down Towerhill Rd in Cumberland, RI which is twisty bordering on dangerous, definately worth a drive.

My favorite strech of road is Division Rd where it connects from Quaker Lane to Shippeetown Rd. It goes right by East Greenwich Country Club. It's twisty, pretty well paved, and always puts a smile on my face. If your heading up RT2 south to Quaker lane, bear RT onto Division Rd and follow it until you reach Shippeetown Rd. You'll come to a stop sign, take a RT and follow that to the next light. That will bring you to New London Turnpike.

Brown Ave in Johnston/Smithfield is pretty good, albeit pretty tight and short.

I'm mad they tore up that Wal-Mart parking lot on New London Turnpike, it was nice to have a long, freshly-paved stretch with no traffic.

I'm glad they did...I live in the townhouses at the end of the parking lot lol. I remember long ago we used to ride dirt bikes up here it was "the dunes".

Yeah, I remember when right next to the Wal-Mart, it was all dusty, and I parked way over on the other side to keep my car clean.....that whole area's changed really quickly.

Are all of the good driving roads mentioned above in RI fairly free of police traps? I've found that almost anyplace in the Providence metro where you can get some decent speed and twisties is slavishly monitored by traps...
