Day 6 – Bikes Fixed – Ready To Go (New Orleans, LA)

We drove to Hammond, LA early in the morning where we met with the salesman for the helmet Contour HD camera which we purchased over the phone yesterday for Gintaras.  Now both of us have a helmet camera.

After that, we drove to Baton Rouge to pick up our bikes from Hebert Cycles BMW dealership.  Both of our bikes were serviced and the clutch problem (slave cylinder) was finally fixed.  James from the dealership has been extremely nice and has done a great job to prepare our bikes for a very long ride to Argentina.  Per our request, James put rivets in our license plates to ensure they are not stolen while abroad and gave us a few extra straps to prevent our top bags from falling while riding on bumpy roads or while riding off-road.  We took a nice picture together.


We rode back to New Orleans to spend the last day here.  We had famous oysters for dinner and enjoyed music and people watching on Bourbon Street.  We are ready to proceed to our next destination – Houston – tomorrow.

Routes taken: I-10 E

Miles ridden: 73 miles (117 km) from the dealership
