    JW78, Im also riding a Tiger 800 and im located over in Port Allen, I have a buddy that has a Tenere 1200. We just did the first 1/3 of the TAT, and are fixing to start making runs to St. Fancisville to tweak some of the farkles weve installed and to get "re-acclimated" to the sore ass syndrome. If your ever interested in joining or BS'ing about tigers, PM ME.

    If anybody is in the city around March 3rd, we're having an event from 6-9 at Auction house market in the CBD. @Sportsbud will be there, and if anybody is in the city y'all should make it too. All makes and models are welcome, trying to make this a big thing every month.

    Even if you don't have a bike, go tool around at the old Camp Claiborne (if you ride a dirt bike, it's called Forrest Hill) on all of the gravel roads just south of Alexandria. It's a HUGE old military base with a ton of old abandoned concrete bunkers, concrete pads, and anything else that was too heavy to take with them
    . They do a National Enduro race there-plus there's a ton of riding in the area. Google it for easy directions. Another cool place is north of town on I-49. Exit at the Cloutierville exit, head west and then at the top of the ridge, hang back north. Then there's another ton of killer dirt and gravel roads to get lost on.

    Your best bet for a good bowl of Gumbo is at Tunk's Cypress Inn on Kincaid lake west of town a few miles. Although I would recommend the Alligator Parmesan at Tunk's. Another is Robbie G's on Jackson Street Extension close to the intersection with Horseshoe Drive. Lastly is Quebedeaux's Boudin & Cracklins on Macarthur Drive at the intersection with Lee Street. I find Quebedeaux's to be overly spicy and it drowns out the flavor.

    Too far north for good gumbo, you may have to go south to Marksville for that.

    I'd head even further south than that for good gumbo!

    Gumbo is a personal thing. For me, it is made with the darkest roux possible, a fat hen, and NO TOMATOES.

    Hello all. Just got a DR650 up and running (first one) and want would get into some off asphalt riding. Been riding for a while, mostly big V-Twins and wanted to get off road and have some fun. I am in the Gonzales area between BR and NO. Does anyone have any good recommendations for some rides in the area other than the spillway? (Sorry have not read the whole thread yet, but will start working from the top soon).
    Hope to meet up with some of y’all for a ride sometime soon.

    Hey Man,
    My name is Guy. I live in Gonzales on Hwy 621 by I-10. I ride a DR asa well and like to get out and ride as much as possible. There isn't a lot of off road riding around us, but if you go up towards St. Francisville, there is some good dirt and gravel road riding. I'm not new to the DR and have just about every tool you could want or need to service/fix one as well as tons of spare parts and lots of knowledge on how to keep one running and all the best upgrades...let me know if you would like to get together and ride or shoot the breeze sometime.

    Guy

    Hey Guy,

    That would be cool to get together and ride.
    I actually just stripped mine down to the frame and built her back with a few upgrades (PO wrecked the wiring harness and took poor care of her). I got her back on its wheels and running great and only have a few more hours of electrical troubleshooting to get the Vapor dash installed correctly I’ll be full on ready.

    I passed a group of about a dozen Sport-Touring bikes heading eastbound on LA110 between Merryville and Longville on Sunday, March 8th.

    Anybody here in that group? I wanna join.

    I was the guy on the NC750X with the hi-viz vest over Black leather and orange and carbon fiber LS2 helmet.

    Behind me was a guy in all black on a green Versys 650. We were westbound and passed you and waved.

    Cheers!

    The trail system is closed due to tornado damage. Camp Claiborne area is open. Dirt was good last weekend. Should be even better this Saturday.

    The gravel roads in Saint Tammany and Washington parish are in excellent shape, the light rains the last few days have the moisture content of the dirt just right for good traction. I have been out the riding the last three days and hope to ride again tomorrow. :-)
