I love LaLa Land.
Love NOLA too ... spent a week there one night.
Closest 3rd world country to us and they "almost" speak English.
I was married to a girl from Jeanerette for a while and always enjoyed the back roads there, alas, never on a bike.
Spent a two week honeymoon rambling about the state with another X, but that is a different story.
Please, please continue and be sure and post your "route". I have a buddy in the Raceland area with a DS bike that I need to con out onto the open road.
