Special Thanks & Contributors First and foremost we would like to express our sincere thanks to our advertisers and sponsors without whom this magazine could not exist. To all of our faithful readers who provide us with their stories and information every month. Please keep them coming! Thanks to our facebook followers that post the cool pictures. To all of our contributors that help make all of our special photo shoots and charitable events a success. And a special shout out of love to our beautiful Louisiana Ladies that model for us every month for our readers viewing pleasure! Your grace, beauty, style and class are priceless to our magazine! Letter from the Publishers The publishers and staff would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! While you are going through your Christmas list, please consider shopping, eating, and drinking in the small businesses featured in this issue. This magazine has been brought to you at NO charge all of these years because of the support of the biker community to the sponsors featured within these pages! Check out the motorcycle friendly directory for all of the businesses that support the biker community and visit them during this holiday season! We look forward to the 2018 Louisiana (and now including Mississippi) Thunder Run. We will be adding many more restaurants, watering holes, dealerships, and shops that will be participating during next year’s Thunder Run beginning in March. Stay tuned to our new website, and our face book pages where we will be making announcements and adding locations. We have two face book pages. Thunder Roads Louisiana/Miss. And Louisiana/Miss Thunder Run. Make sure if you already have a Thunder Run card that you do not throw them away as they never expire, and use them for discounts during the holidays and in the months of December, January, and February. Stay tuned to our January 2018 issue as we have some new and exciting changes coming! Until next time…Remember, where there are bikes, there is going to be thunder! Andrew and Renee R.I.P. to all our brothers and sisters who lost the ride. Cover Story When we were deciding on a cover for our December issue, the obvious choice was Cassidy. Her beauty, charm, and soft features were the perfect match for Christmas. Cassidy has been featured on our March 2017 cover, which our readers overwhelmingly voted in for us to submit to our National office for Cover of The Year. Congratulations to Cassidy and our graphic designer and photographer Clarke Jones and Donna Prosperie! A special thank you to Keith and Amanda, for allowing us to shoot the cover at their club, The Speak Easy Bar and Grill in Kenner. Thanks to Bradley Navas for always watching out, and to our director Andrew Fehn for the creative idea for the shoot. Big thank you to Rocky Wattigney for allowing us to feature your beautiful custom built Harley on this cover!
