News Flash...every month we get a few emails from readers asking if we can list their poker run or bike show in the calendar. We always say, "Yes, send over the info and we would be glad to." However, there is a catch: to make the newsstand in time for your event, we need to get the info at least three months ahead of time. So if you want us to post your event info, we need time to do so.
Email any info to firstname.lastname@example.org
Lone Star Rally
The Lone Star rally, also know as Galveston motorcycle rally, is held just outside Houston with a long list of attractions such as live music, racing, a tattoo contest, demo rides, poker runs, the Miss Lone Star contest, and promotion girls. In addition, the rally has about 400 vendors for all of your needs. Going over the Causeway gets you to Galveston Island. The riding along the beach on the island and riding on Strand Street through the middle of the rally is all part of the Galveston motorcycle experience.
