It is that time of year again. Motorcycles are everywhere in Austin for the Republic of Texas Biker Rally. My favorite event is the motorcycle parade that travels from the Rally site in North Austin to Congress Avenue Downtown. It is pretty special to cheer for the bikers as they arrive on Congress. This year I chose a spot in front of the Capitol Building to view the festivities.
This evening was the Republic of Texas Biker Rally in downtown Austin, including a motorcycle parade, some live music in the middle of Congress Avenue (featuring Asleep at the Wheel), and extra shenanigans on Sixth Street. It is always fun every year to go down and watch the bikers take over Austin. Everybody stay safe out there on the roads!
Helmets are not required at the Wall of Death, and it is a preferred skill to ride with no hands so you can snatch the dollar bills dangled by the customers hanging out over the top edge of the wall. These guys and their motorcycles and go-carts were great!
