Day 10: Yellow - Abilene 287 mi / 462 km
The only hole that currently exists in the path of Easy Rider is among New Mexico and Louisiana. The story is that the cast and crew broke and took different routes across Texas and Oklahoma to reach populations in Louisiana where the last scenes were filmed. This approach is somewhat due to the fact that the actors and the team needed to rest for a period of tyranny imposed by Dennis Hopper in the direction of the film . A team had left half of production as a result of his aggressive style and gaudy , so thought it was good that everyone choose his own way to New Orleans. Our route takes us through Easy Rider the heart of the Texas Panhandle and into the historic city of Abilene. This is a genuine small town Texas where will you go without having seen it all.

Day 11 : Abilene - Austin, TX 220 mi / 354 km
As we continue on our way to New Orleans , there is no doubt that we have to include a night in our favorite city in Texas and the world capital of live music, Austin. Our hotel is located in the heart of the music district of 6th Street , allowing us to walk from bar to bar all night while enjoying the best live music in the country. If you are a music lover , you will not want to get on the bike to leave the city in the morning. If you are not a music lover , you will also find reasons to enjoy Austin. There are rumors that Peter Fonda spent several days at the 6th Street on his way to New Orleans and closed two bars. This is really a feat when you consider that the 6th Street bars were open 24 hours a day in the sixties !

Day 12 : Austin - Lake Charles , LA 290 mi / 467 km
Some of the most famous and memorable scenes from Easy Rider were filmed in the northern state of Louisiana , today we begin our tour through eastern Texas and into the heart of the south. It is a long day of driving but the miles will fly if we think what we will see . Louisiana, with all its charm , its marshes , swamps, and interesting places that make us feel like in another country so different to places and seen so far . Departing from New Orleans, Lake Charles is one of our favorite cities in Louisiana. Tonight we will take a local drink, and perhaps we can see the light of the moon if the spirits of the marshes lead us to it. Lake Charles comes alive at night and is really a preview of what we will see later in our journey with Billy and Wyatt to the call sign from New Orleans.

Day 13 : Lake Charles - New Orleans , LA 245 mi / 394 km
One of the reasons why the success of Easy Rider was the fact that people are surprised with the final scene where Billy and Wyatt are literally exterminated being shot by a truck in the area. This scene was filmed in a real road just outside of Krotz Springs , Louisiana area. Today circulate in the same road and we stop at the exact place where the scene was filmed to remember the profound impact of Easy Rider and that incredible final scene in our way of life as motorcyclists . Driving this road is an amazing experience , but share this road with others is a feeling that only the most fortunate we will be able to enjoy.
