They say they do everything big in Texas, and that certainly applies to MotorcycleRallies.
The Republic of Texas Biker Rally is gargantuan. Like the Lone Star state, itencompasses a lot, and is the fourth-largest biker rally of its kind in the United States.
Those of you who enjoyed the pleasures to be found at the Annual ROT MotorcycleRally in past years know exactly what I'm talking about, and probably can't wait to head outon the highway on your way to Austin.
Whether you're scooter trash, die-hard biker royalty, or simply weekend warriors, you'llfind your place at the four-day biker rally held at the Travis County Exposition Centeras you join more than 200,000 bikers cruising into the city limits to take part in thefestivities.
And what a party. You can enjoy yourself any night at the Cowboy Bar located in theSouth end of the Covered Vendor Mall, where you'll enjoy great music, even greaterBBQ, and many fine, icy-cold beers to wash it all down at the motorcycle gala.
You can head over to the 10,000 sq. ft. tent known as the Paradise Bar with its life-sizedTikis right at the entrance and hundreds of motorcycles parked outside, where you'll bewelcomed as if you were at your corner bar at home, despite the size.
You can take in the incredible musical acts at any of the three featured venues, includingthe Amphitheatre and the "Thunderdome". However, Austin being the Live MusicCapital of the World, you can literally find great music playing damn near anywhere.
And the nightlife isn't the only thing that'll be happening at the Republic of TexasMotorcycle Extravaganza. There's the world famous Wall of Death that was featured onRipley's Believe It or Not! for its extreme performances and death-defying stunts.
Incredible, yet affordable, helicopter rides will give you a tour of Austin you could neverfind anywhere else. There's the Big Texas Chop Off for America's Heroes; a one of akind Invitational Master Builders Show and Competition, where you'll find some of thegreatest bikes ever built.
You can enjoy the Dyno Drags, the Biker Games by Buda, the Ride-In-Bike Show, theTeam FMX stunts, and even the ROT's Got Talent events after you've spent an entirefun-filled day shopping at the many vendor displays on the midway, or gotten some inklaid on you at the Tattoo Expo.
You can take part in many of the fabulous rides, such as the March of Dimes Bikers forBabies Rides scheduled for Saturday morning to benefit children.
The main attraction of the entire ROT Biker Rally, though, has got to be the eventsscheduled for Friday night, including the ROT Motorcycle Parade, which in 2006 was
certified as the "Longest Parade of Motorcycles Known to Mankind" by the GuinnessBook of World Records.
Following that parade, the people celebrating the rally pack themselves into thedowntown Austin streets for the ROT Congress Party that takes place in full view ofthe state's capital and includes live bands. Whoever is headlining this coming year (andthat's yet to be determined), it'll be a rockin' good time.
So, don't be missing this coming June. Be sure to load up your saddlebags and hop onwhatever scooter you ride, and make it down to the capital of Texas for thebest damn party you'll find anywhere at the 18th Annual Republic of Texas Biker Rally.
