Texas今日大事记,本来是准备去6街附近吃晚饭,结果跑到河对岸去了,回来的时候发现整条路被封了,没公交车,从Congress South一直走到了州府大楼。路被封的原因呢,是8,9两天是Republic of Texas Biker Rally,全德州的机车爱好者全部聚会在此,整个大街是轰鸣声一片。特别是后来差不多两千台摩托绕着Congress Ave.转,每每有车过弯便是一阵震耳欲聋的发动机的声音,脚底下一阵发麻。随后上图,整理中。


The Republic of Texas Biker Rally (ROT Biker Rally) is the biggest motorcycle rally in Texas. It is the fourth largest motorcycle rally of any kind in the U.S.[1]

The four-day rally is held the weekend after Memorial Day at the Travis County Exposition Center in Austin. The city of Austin also closes off the downtown area for a huge party on Congress Ave. on Friday night for what is considered the largest biker party in a downtown area of a large city.

In 2008 the ROT Rally had more than 45,000 participants, and drew over 200,000 spectators to downtown Austin during Friday night of the rally.[2][3][4] In 2009 more than 200,000 bikers rode into town for the 16th Annual Republic of Texas Rally. It was the largest recorded attendance according to the City of Austin Visitor’s Bureau.[5]

In 2006, the Guinness Book of World Records certified the ROT Parade as the “Longest Parade of Motorcycles Known to Mankind.”[6]
