Looking for riding buddies around Lake Charles.

I'm looking for a few local guys to show me around the area attractions.

I can hold my own on the bike, but it's been a while since I was riding dirt regularly and I'm on a bike that I just finished getting back on the trail. I can't say that I will be fast...

I just don't want to ride alone for a variety of reasons.

I'm in Lake Charles and know I'll probably have to trailer an hour or two to ride.

If you know anybody or know of any other resources, please let me know.

Thanks- Joel

I’m in Beaumont- if the good lord ever sees fit to provide us with adequate weather to satisfy the park rangers we go to Kisatchie nf. If the stars align - you’re welcome to tag along

He's probably the most friendly guy you'd ever meet. He likes people.

RJ,

I've been meaning to ride Kisatchie with JD ever since the sold me the Sherco. Love to ride with you again, too. If you guys get something going, post up. Maybe JMZ will come if he can start the pig or SB if he's not on one of his 4000 mile weekends.

Sounds good Meriden! As usual- one of the biggest problems with the forest other than they are so picky about conditions is getting accurate information about whether or not they are going to be open, or if the entrance road is closed etc. Website is not accurate, the recording is not accurate, usually no way to get a human. It is always a joy when I️ plan, load up and drive 2+ hours and find that they are closed or some other excuse.
Not fast but I’m persistent.

I rebuilt the top end but it had a problem before that and it's still there. When riding, it misses about once every 10 - 15 seconds. Pretty sure it's electrical but haven't figured it out yet. It's almost like punching the kill switch as I'm going along. Kinda suspect it's something to do with the pulse pickup in the ignition. It's only is noticeable when riding. If the bike is idleing and I rev it up, I never hear it miss. Possibly a loose ground somewhere. I've 2 other bike projects I need to get completed so I can spend some time on it.
