NOW, lets fast forward to some positive things for our state, such as bringing our jobs back in especially the oil field, because after all that is what stimulates the economy for all other businesses. With that in mind, we urge you with the Christmas season just around the corner, that you spend those hard earned dollars with the shops, dealerships, company’s, and watering holes that you see in this magazine. They spend their hard earned money supporting this magazine, as to keep it free to you the reader! And remember, we ride damned near all year round here, so be safe out there, and watch out for yourselves and each other as you demand that “cages” watch out for you. And if you do not already belong, please enroll as a member of your local ABATE chapter, http://www.abateoflouisiana.org/, and help change the laws that keep you on the road and help to protect your rights. Till next time, Happy Thanksgiving! Visit our brand new interactive website starting this month! Andrew and Renee R.I.P. to all our brothers and sisters who lost the ride.
