like i told KDK..the ride from New Orleans to Biloxi on HWY 90 is great. Also, 90 from New Iberia to Houma is pretty decent too. Stay outta 90 from houma to New orleans..its a deathtrap lol.
Also, the ride from Lafayette to Grand Cheniere is cool. lots of marshland to see. Just watch out for the gators, flip ya clean off your bike...then they'll chase you :shock:

Welcome to the family,

If you have hills its better to break in your bike under load rather than just a straight line on flatlands.

You are on the right track looking for some solid gear for yourself. Establish you budget and figure on what you want to spend on your equipment.

Helmet
2nd visor
Gloves
Boots
Jacket
Pants

Keep a few items that people can give you for Xmas gifts etc...he he :lol:

Sorry to hear that. I could go for authentic gumbo soup today though. Cool and a little windy. Jacket weather.

adam my family gumbo recipe is over 150 years old (modified, of course)
if you've got the patience to stand over a pot stirring for an hour without stopping i'd be happy to tell ya how to make your very own authentic cajun gumbo :)
