    Can we keep the non trail related stuff outta here please. That way we do not have to swim through all of it. Definately leave feedback and ask any questions about the trail.

    Thanks and Come Ride Soon!

    Awesome! I'm going to try and sneak back down to Mississippi and Louisiana this fall once things calm down. I freaking love those states!

    Nice feature, I recently moved here - five months ago, from Alabama and in the past month have started having time to start 'sploring. I have a Strom 1000 but recently purchased a DR650 and have to drive to Indiana next week to pick it up.

    I live in Keithville, Shreveport suburb, and mtn bike around the Eddie Jones Park area - there are thousands of acrs of land marked "DMAP" that are miles and miles of fire roads - do any ya'll know what the DMAP areas are?

    Great info for the area

    As Scott mentioned I think the trail is purdy awesome. Being a street bike convert i haven't had much dual sporting experience prior to the trail, but regardless it's a good time. It's amazing what you can find if you'll just go out and look for it. He has integrated a lot of different terrain (unintentional I'm sure :D) Personally, I think that makes for a better ride.

    We need to get some more people out there on it. There has to be some more folks out there looking for a good ride. Come on and hit the L.O.T. I can vouch for having a good time. :thumb

    I'm learning a lot out there on the trail. This weekends lesson...
    Don't try to hit a mud hole as fast and hard as Scott does, even if he makes it look easy!

    2200 Transalp miles in the last month. What's your count? :deal :D


    Jeff and I did some gravel ripping mud slogging around on Bodcau last weekend, and we had a buddy with a GSXR 600 come up from NOLA this weekend, so we had to stick to the pavement, we did hit some of the old oil-top though. I just haven't done exploring on the northern portion yet.

    Have I mentioned how good it feels to outrun a dude on a GSXR through the asphalt twisties with a Transalp on worn out Mefo's? :lol3
    (he had an unfair advantage in the straights though)

    Man, I moved from Leesville, LA in 1986 and I have missed only a few things. The people and the riding. The only riding I did back then was on a Honda Big Red Three Wheeler. I am still riding in Colorado but now on two wheels. Thanks for the pics and memories.
