scooby doo use to always say this
when some impending doom was to happen

thats what the city of austin officials are saying
as they prepare for 50,000+ bike riders as they
descend on austin on the weekend of june 11
for the
rot republic of texas motorcycle rally held here
each year

now when i was in the clinic i worked in
it was a large block away from the highway where
many of these riders came into austin from a
northern route
hopefully not from waco though

there was this constant drone of motorcycles as
they drove into town
it was so constant you sort of got to where you didnt notice
if you were there on sunday the drone noise went
the other way
occasionally a rider would drift into the clinic
when you got past their outfits they were just regular
people who enjoyed motorcycling
of course
you cant tell from looking at them to see if they are
the bad guys or not

each year they lose a few at this rally from wrecks
involving no helmets and alcohol
ok they have the right to not wear a helmet

now i dont agree with them
it doesnt matter i guess since they are not around to argue
with me

ive sat in my office twice before i retired
trying to console a widow with young kids
whose hubbys felt the need to be free and ride
a motorcycle and to do so without a helmet

now i know what motorcycle gangs are really like
since i watched two seasons of sons of anarchy
those guys are ruthless bastards
probably the old gangs are still that way
i sure wouldnt have wanted to have been at waco at
twin peaks when that guy ran over other guys foot
and started all that slaughter of folks
sure makes me worry about the right to carry law
it worked well this time didnt it

now as the weekend of the rot rally is near
i think ill keep a wide girth around austin that weekend
just in case
