Hello from Baton Rouge!
« on: May 26, 2018, 06:30:47 pm »

Discovered this site almost three years ago researching my next new-to-me bike. After a long absence of riding I picked up an 01 two years ago and have logged 10K safe and trouble free miles. Thanks to everyone for the invaluable information this forum provides. I have the bike I want and don't see myself ever selling it.

Changed my status from forum to full member this morning. Been lurking, searching, and reading long enough. I hope to contribute soon, but with the vast knowledge here, I don't know.

Hope to meet y'all at some point. Thinking of rolling out to the National and see what that's all about.

Congratulations on the '01 and welcome to COG. Another Baton Rouge guy here, but I left the Red Stick a long time ago because of business and settled down in Florida. I still get back that way occasionally because my wife and I have roots there.

Come on out to the National if you can. It's a great way to see this group at its best.

Welcome. Born and raised in NOLA and lived in BR for 18 years, now in St. Francisville. We have a group that gets together for rides now and then. PM your email address if you would like an invite next time that happens. Won't be between now and the national and probably not till the weather cools, unless we do a brunch ride.

Sounds like a plan. In the past we have done picnic rides to Rocky Springs. I have camped there as well. Or we could run the whole length from naychez to Nashville th

Lather...PM sent. Thanks for the invite!

I'm actually just down the road from you in Slaughter. Everyone knows where Baton Rouge is so I listed that as my location since no one knows where Slaughter is.
