This coming weekend we will be headed to Northwest Louisiana and Lake Bisteneau State Park for the annual Burn Run. The Burn Run is put on each year by the Brother’s Keepers Motorcycle Club and helps raise funds for a regional camp for burned children. It is a big event and draws hundreds of area riders.

I am always impressed with the generosity and kindness of the riding community. Motorcyclists are an incredibly charitable group. Riders are always ready to lend a helping hand; whether it is one of their own or not. Each year motorcyclists help to raise millions of dollars for all sorts of groups and individuals. From small poker runs to nationwide campaigns, bikers help support injured veterans, take care of the sick and hungry, protect the innocent from abuse and on an on. I am proud to say that I am a part of the this diverse and caring community and I look forward to attending this weekend’s Burn Run.
While in the area I hope to head over to nearby Bienville Parish and update a story we did about four years ago. Legendary Outlaws Bonnie and Clyde put Bienville on the map back in 1934 – not for robbing banks there –but for meeting their end on a rural Parish Highway.
Where but in the small community of Gibsland will you find two Bonnie and Clyde Museums?

The last time I was there it was 99 degrees in the shade; I am looking forward to a little cooler weather this time around.
See you on the road!
