Here the story. This guy and his wife used to ride Harleys,, Sold them bought SportBikes(Him a Billet encrusted Busa her a Raven R1) They said plenty of Harley rallies, lotsa Cruiser rallies, Even the "Wing riders" but NOTHING for SportBikes.
So 2 years ago they decided to give something back to the SportBike community. A free Lunch and a 50/50 raffle for charity.
Well the Rally is in it's 3rd year. Last year there were over 200 bikes, this year,, the promoters are cooking for 600!
As far as I know this is the ONLY SPORTBIKE specific Rally in Texas.
Although the rally is Saturday only, Quite a few riders are going a day early and staying a day late.
OK here's the Rally Details:
FREE ENTRY(thats right NO CHARGE!)
Free BBQ lunch
Free Camping in the city park(includes showers and BR)
50/50 raffle (I THINK tickets are $1)including 3 or 4 new fullface helmets, several new sport jackets,
and quite a bit more
An open Stunt Show/Contest
Granted this is a rather isolated location (Iraan Texas) but hey ya gotta go where the party is!
This is a Charity event and proceeds will go to the local Senior Citizens Center.
There have been discussions about this thing possibly growing to 2 days, 50cc roadraces/pocketbike, drag races, bikini Bike wash, more rodeo events,,,, in the future. Dana and Nancy Beck the Promoters own a BBQ restruant that is donating all the food and drinks and since Dana works for the city He's in good there and has the city and county's full cooperation!Confirmed riders are coming from:
Eastern New Mexico, Dallas are,,Austin area, Midland/Odessa, Fort Stockton, Lubbock, Plainview, Andrews, Houston, San Antonio, Abilene. The more the merrier! The local motel is full although there is another motel in Sheffield a few miles away. Also keep in mind the free camping in the city park.
Here's the Flier:
