2013 ROT Biker Rally
2012 ROT Rally
ROT Rally/Republic of Texas Rally
June 12 to 15, 2014
ROT Rally General Info
Important Note: ROT Rally weekend is a "No Refusal" weekend:
One of the largest Texas biker rallies is the ROT rally in Austin which is on the 2014 Lightning Customs' Major Biker Rallies List.
The official ROT Rally grounds are east of Austin at the Travis County Expo Center. Although the ROT motorcycle rally officially has about 45,000 attendees who go to the events and camp at the Expo Center, there a lot more who come into town and find more than enough to do in the Austin area that is FREE. This is seen by the 200,000 plus bikers and locals in the downtown area. With this level of attendance the Republic of Texas Rally ranks nationally probably in the top 20 largest rallies behind much larger rallies like Sturgis, Daytona Bike Week, Bikes Blues BBQ, Lone Star Galveston, Johnstown Thunder in the Valley, Thunder Beach Spring, Thunder Beach Autumn, Biketoberfest, Leesburg, Delmarva, etc, etc.
We talk to a lot of people on and off the rally grounds and the consensus is that a large reason why so many people opt to not go to the official ROT grounds at the Expo Center is because it is expensive and during this time of year you can expect the weather to be in the mid-90's, if not in the 100’s. Finally, when the heat is combined with the humidity it makes getting catching some wind while riding in the beautiful Hill Country and hanging out at the bars a lot more appealing.
Republic of Texas Bike Rally Attractions
If you don't mind the previous noted weather, the camping area is quite a wild party at night. On the official grounds there are top name bands, bike shows, some custom bike builders, big distributors, a parade to downtown starting at the rally grounds, other contests and attractions, and vendors. Although the number of vendors sounds like good news for attendees, the complaints that we have heard from vendors is that the increase in the number of vendors has not been matched by the same percentage of attendees. Finally, no matter if you go to the Expo Center or are anywhere in Austin, the women are hot like they are in most warm states.
