Anybody in Louisiana/Mississippi

Not sure how many members on here from the Louisiana/Mississippi area, but I'm working near New Orleans right now and was looking for some people to ride with that know their way around. If you know of a good place to ride, organized rides taking place, or want to go exploring let me know. Haven't found a lot of great roads down here yet, but I'm glad to be riding since there's snow on the ground in Iowa!!

Staying in Reserve, LA. It's about 40 minutes west of New Orleans right along I-10.

Trying to get a riding club in New Orleans in touch with you.

As far as the roads, Mississippi and Louisiana have a recycling program. When ever we get a new road we give Louisiana our old one.

Just kidding!!!!

Merry Christmas !!!

Thanks a lot, I don't mind exploring alone, but it's nice to ride with the locals who know the places a guy should and shouldn't go.

I think you're right about the road program, there's plenty of bumps in the roads around that will knock the cruise off when you hit them!

Merry Christmas to you as well, It'll be different to ride the scooter instead of the snowmobile in December this year!

Here is a nice ride for you with a fantastic restaurant to boot. Good Cajun cooking and a lot of it.

The restaurant is Bertholots in Port Vincent.

Airline Highway to La 431 just above Sorrento. 431 will take you right to Bertholots.

Leave Bertholots and cross the river.

Right at the light. Thats 16 / 42.

Follow to La 444. Take all the way to Killian.

At La 22 take a right. This is the nice part of the ride. Curvy roads and a nice scenic ride along a bayou. 22 will take you back Sorrento and Airline Highway.

Good luck and ride safe!

Head up to Baton Rouge and take Hy 61 north to Natchez Ms, then on up 61 toward Vicksburg Ms. When you get to Lorman stop at the country store and eat lunch then head out to the Windson Ruins.then on to Vicksburg National Military park. Then east on I 20 to Jackson, back down I55 south to New Orleans. When are you wanting to do this and how long will you be here.

Thanks to both of you for the route ideas!

I'll be here 'till around new years, so if it doesn't rain this weekend I'll probably try to take the 425 mile trip up to Jackson, and if the weather is iffy I'll take the shorter one. These both look like great routes to get off the main highways

I'm right up the road in Port Allen, LA. Just across the river from Baton Rouge. I've been looking for a good ride for this weekend. If you don't mind me tagging along, PM me and I will send you my phone number.
