    “The last time the rally had a presence there was before Hurricane Ike” .. Really ? It was in full swing in ’10 and ’11 as well.

    Always a great rally . I’m not sure how someone can say it’s better than Sturgis ( @rodent??) though I do enjoy it just as much in many ways. It’s a calm one, compared to areas of Sturgis or ROT Rally in Austin… but, what a blast and the weather is usually awesome in the mid to upper 70s.

    This year looks to have been stepped up a notch with headliners and vendors… sense an awesome TX party coming on!

    They are talking about Seawall area. – It hasn’t been used since Ike. With the Seawall back this is going to be a great year for LSR. Great event, well run, lots of stuff to do, FREE.

    I don’t drink, that said, you drinkers can sit on your ride with an open bottle in your paws and enjoy. Try that in Sturgis and they’ll DWI you, tow your bike, and grow your ass in jail . Cops don’t fuck with people that don’t need fucking with!

    Galveston is the spoiled daughter of Texas. An island. There’s only three ways off the island, there used to be only two.

    People who landed on the island and went askew of local society and were on the run could travel north to the Bolivar Ferry and wait in line to board (while getting beaten to a pulp), or they could head directly for the causeway bridge and be met by a gauntlet-line of shot guns and have their car doors blown-off.

    Ether way, they’d always return home to tell everybody what a good time they had in Galveston, and how they couldn’t wait to come back. 🙂

    The hospitality has always worked both ways, and visitors were most often given the benefit of a doubt (moments before getting knocked out).
    As a home town, we always felt that Galveston was like an “appendix” (as in human), that sat below Houston and collected colorful people from West-East travelers and vice versa.

    All the people I grew up in the with in the 60’s now run the island and it’s better for it. “We” own it now. “We” run Galveston now instead of them. “Them” were small minded assholes and they’re long gone.

    I think Mary-Jo Santyre and Wendy Zweener had a lot to do with the restoration of the Strand. The original 1st wave of surfers.
    Galveston is in better hands now with the sons & daughters of 1946.

    However, I do find it beyond-odd, that the people of Galveston haven’t rebelled against the Texas ban on medical marijuana.

    It’s just so NOT Galveston 🙂 to be told what to do. They’re usually highly-successful when running against the grain, especially if Kirk Perry’s using marijuana legally. That in itself is enough to drive them to unresolved distraction.
