The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) had announced new dates for the Lone Star Rally, an AMA National Convention and part of the AMA Premier Touring Series presented by Cycle Trader. The event will now be held Dec. 11-14 in Galveston, Texas.
The Lone Star Rally was originally scheduled for Oct. 30 through Nov. 2. Unfortunately, the effects of Hurricane Ike on Galveston Island have forced the postponement of the event.
The Texas Department of Public Safety and the Galveston Chamber of Commerce estimate that more 400,000 riders attended the four-day rally in 2007. While many hotels and restaurants are recovering from the hurricane, there is still much work to do to prepare for a rally the size of the Lone Star.
The Lone Star Rally is one of the largest events on the schedule for the AMA Premier Touring Series presented by Cycle Trader. The rally will feature a pirate theme, a leather and lace ball, numerous live concerts, poker runs, demo rides, a ghost ship tour, vendors, the Lone Star Lady Riders Conference and more.
