So I have some different insite to the rally...


Friday they do a parade of all the bikes from the convention center all the way to 6th street...


UNIFIDDY
myself
and SPRING R1

decide that our 50's should be fast enough to keep up with the parade speed...

well... needless to say, all three of us rode all the way to 6th street with no problem... ((about 15 miles))


guess what... THE PARADE WASN'T COMING BACK


we were kind of stranded on 6th street on the 50's


we managed to weave our way around austin avoiding all the cops that were out on a friday night... somehow found hwy 183 back down to MLK, which is the back road to the convention center



after our 30+mile ride on the 50's we made it back to the grounds... and jumped into the "LOOP" that goes through the camp sites...

a cop jumps my and says that I can't be on the loop on my 50 after dark
so I say ok... I go back over to UNIFIDDY/SpringR1's camp site to get my trailer keys so I can go back to my camp...

as I am pulling back out of the camp site... the cop rushes me!! (still have a bruise on my arm)... threatens to impound my 50... after pleading and explaining the situation they make me leave the grounds... i get back to the trailer and decide that I am just going to go back to the hotel and shower and hit up 6th street for a couple hours with some friends i have that live in Austin.

I get on my bike and head down to 290... I am riding with about 8 bikes total and I am 4th in line...

the first 2 bikes are yelling back and forth (talking) while riding... one guy behind them (they were all together) starts rapping out his pipes... so the guy in the lead start hitting the rev limiter.... accidently slips the clutch and the bike launches out from under them... passenger hits the ground and stays there... dead... bike hit a truck in front of them


driver seemed to be conscious.... but I find out later (if it was the same wreck) that they both died

worst Fri night I have ever had...


apparently Fri night took 4 total casualties and about 9 wrecks (that made the circulation)



it's not something that I would ever want to experience again...
