Hello and thanks for the add!  Thrilled to be part of the group and hope to meetup with some fellow riders. I'm a relatively new rider, haven't ridden in 35 years. After much debate I decided on a 21' Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX so I could do some weekend touring and moto-camping. So far I'm very pleased with the bike.  I've done one 4 day trip that was a blast and eager to do more, including attending some of the MSTA events in 2022.

Welcome Brian. There are a few of us in South Louisiana. I'll send you an invite when we do a lunch ride. Not sure when that will be with this crazy weather! I got chased home today by an unexpected thunder storm.

Welcome Brian, and glad you found us. Never ridden in Louisiana (but did go to Mardi Gras some 20+ years ago). Hope to see you at an event this year. Keep the rubber side down and have fun.

Appreciate all the welcome notes from everyone.
