I was hoping to go but i'm just not sure yet.

It's not helping i'm not comfortable with my front tire's condition.
It was supposed to be replaced this weekend but it's looking like they aren't going to get it in........

no, but...

I went two years ago. Austin is a cool town. Biggest problem was that it rained big time on the way there Thursday. All of the camping area was a big mud hole.

It seems like if you are having an outdoor gathering in Austin, June would not be the best time. I LOVE living in central Texas, but this would be better in April...or October.

Anyway, am going to beg, borrow, or steal time off work NEXT year to attend. Just can't swing it this year (new job) :-(.

you must be thinking of a different year. i've gone the past 2 years and it didn't rain.

seeing as how i live here, hell yeah i'm going. ROT has actually commissioned me to film this year's and next year's rally. if you go to their website, that's my video on the home page i made of last year's rally. if anyone is going out there, hit me up. send me a PM or something. i'll be there thursday evening and all day friday and saturday.

on a steel horse I ride
i create motorcycle videos. check them out here

Well MC will need to work but I may head over with the kids on Saturday. I've never been and it sure looks like fun.

On a motorcycle, suddenly you comprehend the wrongness of speed..."We are running way too fast!" your primal brain screams. "How did this even happen?! ARE WE FALLING?"
And then your rational brain glances in the rear view mirror and says "Speed up, man, this is a school zone: You have to do at least 20 mph."

I think she thinks that people ride up on their motorcycles, park, and then start doing arts and crafts to promote world peace. She's new, I will fill her in.

I've been informed by MC that he disapproves of my plan to slap a ZZ Top-style beard on the baby and push him in a running stroller with a headlight on it (billing it as a new type of trike). Sheesh. No sense of adventure these days.

I will be there. Come by and say "howdy". I will be set up in the TnT Renegade Lights vending tent at the bottom of the big parking lot beside the Paradise Bar.
