Late September, rode the KLR Grey Phantom rig 300 miles
through east Texas to central Louisiana.

Peaceful Texas vineyard and cattle grazing

The grapes are almost ready for harvest.

The 600 mile round trip to Bunkie, Louisiana was for an annual gathering of friends and neighbors.

Although the day before the trip, preperations were interrupted by a small gathering of ONE unwelcome intruder!


The 2016 Bunkie Boucherie was our annual regional sidecar rally 

Visited with old friends and made new ones.
The sidecar community is alive and well in Texas - Louisiana.

Here is a short video of some of the sights, rigs and the activities.

As the Acadians, or Cajuns, love to say:

Laissez les bons temps rouler!

The good times do roll with a sidecar

Grey Phantom ran great, no problems cruising at 60-65 mph 
in spite of the larger 49 tooth rear sprocket. 

Am starting to like the car tire on the rear of the KLR.
