Re: Going for a "Ramble" - NM, TX, LA & places in between!

Today I had a day off the bike. My Butt needed a break after 8 straight days. Turk, Joey and I had Boudain and Cracklins for breakfast, hit Avery Island and the Tabasco Factory to fulfill one of Turk's "Bucket List" items.

I had a little accessory trouble which turned out to be a failed HEX EZCan Canbus Controller issue. HEX and TouraTech worked to get me a replacement and Joey and i installed it this afternoon. I'm happy to say all auxiliaries are once again functional.

look for scenic hwy 182 along Bayou Teche, very pretty road. Also, Victor's Cafeteria in New Iberia is worth a detour, famous for it's food and as a dave Robichaux haunt in James lee Burke novels.
