Lone Star Rally and my LT

This past weekend my wife and I attended the Lone Star Rally in Galveston, TX. With 300,000+ attending we had a great weekend. With a sea of HD on display my LT was a shinning standout. Many people stopped by to look and ask me question about my bike.

The attached picture is my LT parked on The Strand with is the main drag though the historic district in Galveston.

I was there also. Lots of looks and the fans stayed on more than off.
Friday night we went to a mexican grocery store that has a little restaurant in the back. We parked on the side of the building and placed our helmets on the seat. There were four bikes. We went inside and had some killer food, came out to find four bikes but only three helmets. Yep, my helmet was gone. We were the only people that could speak english and by then, whats the point. Someone wanted it and took it.
I can say that the bike sure sounds different without a helmet. My buddy had an extra one that I used for the rest of the weekend.

Looks like a great rally. Good shot of the bike. I especially like the color.
