My second ROT Rally was was a great weekend! My sister, Randall, Mike & Sheryl were at the same hotel and a few of the Star Riders (Sherri, Bobby, Mark, Mike & his wife) were there.
Sherri & I arrived in Austin around 6 PM. We headed on Hwy 90A to Hwy 77 to Hwy 281. We missed most of the rain until 60 miles out of Austin. It was a nice ride (cool weather most of the way).
Got cleaned up and had dinner near the hotel for the first night.
We had breakfast at Taco Cabana and checked in at the rally site and checked out the vendors. Got back to the hotel around 3 PM. Betty Jo & Randall had arrived at the hotel. Randall was trying to fix a flat. Randall, & Mike & Sheryl went up to the Harley dealership to get the flat fixed. They would not fix it because of all the other problems the bike had (To many to list). I bought a T-shirt, Bobby Came and met us at the Harley shop. We headed back to the hotel, then we had dinner at Taco Cabana (I know thats 2 times in one day, but that is where Randall wanted to go) with Cherri, Bobby, Betty Jo & Randall, and Mike & Sheryl.
Sherri, Bobby, & I left for downtown for the ROT party. We met up with Mark, Mike & his wife at the Blind Pig Pub on 6th street & party on the roof. Got back to the hotel around 1 PM.
We had breakfast at Kirby Lane (Great Food!) and headed out for a Morning ride west of Austin near Lake Travis. Nice pretty ride!
Arrived at the rally site around noon. I had lunch at the rally. Checked out the bikes and more vendors.
Back at the hotel around 5 PM for a break.
Randall and Betty Jo went back to the Harley dealership and traded in there old Harley and bought a new Road King (I guess next time I’ll trade in my bike when I get a flat! LOL).
Had dinner at Land & Cattle Steak House with Cherri, Betty Jo & Randall, and Mike & Sheryl. We headed back out to the Rally for the concert. When we got there we went in the back gate (Number 3) and got stuck in the parade which was a mistake, after and hour in the parade we got to the concert area.
After the concert we hung around for an hour for the parade party, which was just as wild as last years. It was fun to watch. Got back to the hotel around 1:30 AM.
We had breakfast at Kirby Lane again. We headed back to Houston around 10 AM. We followed the MS 150 route on FM 949 to Bastrop, then through the Bastrop state park then on to Hwy 77 to I-10 with lunch in Columbus. We arrived in Houston around 5 PM.
