Biker Parade by atmtx on Flickr.Via Flickr:Republic of Texas Biker Rally, 6th Street, Austin, TX
The ROT (Republic of Texas) Biker Rally is an annual event that brings in bikers from all over the country.  Wikipedia says its the 4th largest motocycle rally and in 2009 more than 200,000 bikers rode into town.  This is the first time I went downtown during this event and I was astounded with the number of motorcycles and people that were on 6th street.
In many places the motorcycles numbered two rows deep on both sides of 6th street.  A parade of sorts was on display down the middle of the street with thousands of spectators.
