    It's Mardi Gras time along the Gulf Coast and just in case you didn't know there is a Bikers Ball and ride sponsored by the Abba Shrine in Mobile. We are planning on going to the ball and ride if the weather is good. The Ball is Feb 10 and the ride is Feb 11. I'll try to get pictures id we ride.:)

    Sounds fun, have a great time. Riding here has been great, been in the 80's.

    That's exactly what MG in Nawlens is, an experience. It's toned down in Mobile and I think better organized. BTW, Mobile is the birthplace of MG in North America, first parade 1703

    Love New Orleans. I have been there for Halloween, but have never been to Mardi Gras :(

    THE Mardi Gras is in Mobile. Much to New Orleans dismay....

    IMO- it's gotten out of hand over the years and not exactly the safest place on the streets.
