If you listen carefully you may hear the deep-throated rumble of motorcycles in the distance.  And if you spend your time outdoors you will probably hear that sound all weekend.  The Republic of Texas Bike Rally-- affectionally known as the ROT Rally-- is back for its 19th go-round.  It is one of the largest and most well-known motorcycle rallies in the country, combining live music entertainment, specialized vendors, professional attractions, celebrity guests and all things motorcycle.


According to the organizer, every year the ROT Rally® attracts more than 200,000 motorcycle enthusiast to Central Texas, creating an economic impact of $36 million dollars for the city of Austin.


Home base for the ROT Rally is the Travis County Expo Center, but you'll see the motorcycles cruising all over town.  And they're famous for their splashy motorcycle parade in the city's entertainment district.  Look for them cruising down Sixth Street on Friday Night.


The Republic of Texas Bike Rally Runs today through Sunday, June 13-16.  Yopu can get more information from their web site or their new app.  Just click on this link.
