ROT Rally

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.

Wall of Death II

A motorcycle show that always amazes.  The Wall of Death is complete with motorcycle riders riding to the top of the wall and grabbing dollars from customer’s outstretched hands.  The wooden facility is shaking all through the act with fans shouting on their motorcycle heroes as they defy gravity and race along the wall.

Republic of Texas Biker Rally

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!
