new orleans ride

my friend and i are planning a friday-sunday ride this thanksgiving to new orleans.

just wondering if anyone had any suggestions about good routes and motorcycle friendly attractions/places to stay.

i was actually concerned about parking and wandering around by foot. i don't like to leave my bike unattended for too long even in houston, so i can't imaging nola would make me feel any different.

thanks!

Be carefull on I-10. State troopers are everywhere. Ride safe, and have fun. You can take the old spanish trail untill Beaumont. After that, back roads through Cameron exit 20la, go south all the way to new Iberia. Hwy 90 aka 126??? to bellchase and north to neworleans. Should take about 6 hours with gas, and smoke stops depending on your rate of travel. I would join y'all, but I have to take a class.

2006 VFR800a (sold - covered a lot of miles)
04 Honda 599 (sold)



I hit some back roads on my VFR when I watched the races at NOLA. I stayed on I-10 until Lake Charles. I jumped off on 14 south from the 210 loop and stayed on 14 until it hit US90 near New Iberia and stayed on 90 all the way to Avondale.

14 was no worse than the farm to market roads around here, and 90 was similar to 290 with divided highway that went through a few towns. Going that round probably added only about an hour to the day. Fuel was easy to find with probably no more than 20 miles between gas stations anywhere along the route. I would probably go that way again because even on the VFR I get tired of interstate where it feels like you're in a race all the time!

And a lot of 14 was 55mph, but it was so open and flat with good sight lines that I typically ran about 65 mph. I'd say about 20 miles of it was bumpy in one stretch, but not like pothole bumpy.
