If all falls just right, Jan 22 will be the day the Saints are beating up on the Packers.
Going to have to check the times.


As for the dirt roads, I'm guessing the Uly will be ok as long as it doesn't rain the day before?

The Truck Stop is on the left just past the long bridge that goes over the wide creek/sandwash across from Red Stick Armature. It is on the corner of the road that goes to the old Timbec Paper Mill.

Instead of having the BR folks head all the way to New Roads-an hour out of the way from where we're going, why not meet up at the gas station on 61 just south of St. Francisville proper and south of the Sonic and McD's. The gas station shares a Churches Fried Chicken. Everyone can muster there, fuel up and then we'll head out for some fun.

I'm aiming to get the Lafayette crew back to the east bank entrance to the new Audobon Bridge for 3 to 3:30p. This way you'd be able to get home for dark.

Killer dirt and gravel, twisty tar, Civil War era roads, some Moon Pies at the old store in Pond, MS. and a great day will be had by all.

Fellas, I'm pretty much new here...

I have a XR650L and a 1200 Adventure...

How agressive will the dirt be or which bike might be better suited?

Hoping I'd be welcome, from the Big Easy...

The Adventure will make the slab to St. Frannie bearable. We're going to tool around on potholed substandard paved roads, dirt roads and hardpack gravel roads.

Nothing a minivan couldn't navigate in the dry.

It's gonna be a fun day. Head on over on whatever trusty steed you choose.

I'm sure I'd be more comfortable on the 1200, but I aint really interested in picking her big arse up...

Can you send details of where from BR you'll be heading out and the time?

Gotta love guy named Dirty...

We'll figure out the time to meet up a bit later, but heading to Baton Rouge from NO, let's meet up at the Highland Road Exit (Waterpark Exit, can't miss it) then we'll head through town, and north to St. Francisville.

Looks like I don't have to worry about the Saints game that day.

Now this ride or a track day.

Happy Monday

Can't wait for the end of the week, I looked at the weather report and it looks like a good riding day for Sunday. Of course that dosen't mean crap in Louisiana the weather changes so fast around here. But all and all it looks like it won't be to bad.

I just wanted to make sure I got a head count for those meeting up in Carencro, LA with me. If I left you out let me know.
KTMandu + 1 ; Weather permitting
1125 Rebel
5Kadv ; If your bikes back together
Daddy Long Legs
and
me + 1

So I should see 6 people and myself at 7am on Sunday. I didn't want to leave anyone behind.

Hey Scott count me in if it doesn't rain on Saturday. Sorry dude but getting stuck with slicks on a supermoto just isn't all that much fun. I'll meet up with u on Sunday at the gas station.

You shouldn't worry about that. You did very good that last time better than I would have done.
Good to see you on the site! You are my +1 I added to the list.
