2012

Republic of Texas Biker Rally in the Great City of Austin, Texas -
Vendor Sales and author book signing. Once again, Austin awoke to the rumble and roar of motorcycles for four fun-filled and exciting days and nights.

The best party these Texans and their motorcycle have attended north of the Red River! A few clouds and raindrops will never dampen the spirits of passionate motorcycles and their riders. Clyde, the motorcycle, and his family enjoyed every minute, every story and every scenic mile! Yes, of course, we’re looking forward to a repeat appearance in 2013!

Well attended, well organized, beautiful weather, and lots of family-friendly attractions & entertainment culminated in a non-stop, ROARING weekend. And if that’s not enough, profits benefit Northwest Arkansas charities…WOW…Join us 2012!

Thursday, June 9 – Sunday, June 12, 2011
Republic of Texas Biker Rally in the Great City of Austin, Texas –

2010

Friday, September 4 – Monday, September 6, 2010
Warriors for Christ Biker Bash, Downtown Square, Granbury, Texas – Vendor Sales and author book signing. Sandwiched between the Texas summer heat and a week of driving rain, this gorgeous fall weekend brought biker families out by the droves! Always wonderful to see old friends and meet new ones. With their loudest rumbles, Clyde and Pearl thank you, their loyal fans, from the bottom of their V-twins for the support and kind words you always seem to bestow upon us! Look forward to seeing you next time!

Thursday, June 10 – Sunday, June 13, 2010
ROT Biker Rally, Austin, Texas – Vendor sales and author book signing. A sea of chrome and rumbling filled the air, as motorcycles of all shapes, colors and sizes again descended upon Austin. Clyde is becoming as much an institution as the rally itself…well…almost! If you missed us the last four years, we’ll be back! A special “thank you” to our ROT fans and friends – you make us smile.

Saturday, April 24, 2010
12th Annual Blue Ribbon Rally Car & Bike Show, Lubbock, Texas – Vendor sales and author book signing. The West Texas wind swept us off our feet in Black & Red Texas Tech Country. Much to his delight, Clyde was surprised by a visit from Raider Red himself! Despite the high winds, we enjoyed our visit, where Lubbock-ites are always passionate about supporting the Blue Ribbon Rally, The Family Guidance and Outreach Center, and last but not least, their new friends, “Clyde” and “Pearl”! Thanks, Lubbock!

2009

Thursday, October 29 – Sunday, November 1, 2009
Lone Star Rally, Galveston, Texas – Vendor sales and author book signing.  The World’s Largest Halloween Party never disappoints!  Hundreds of thousands of participants.  Rough start weatherwise, but absolutely beautiful the last half of the rally.  After a short ride on the beach, Clyde elected to enjoy the sights resting in the shadow of a cruise ship docked in Galveston Bay – the life of a spoiled motorcycle!  So much to see and do – so little time…oh well, there’s always next year!

Friday, September 18 – Sunday, September 20, 2009
Oldest Town in Texas Motorcycle Rally, Nacogdoches, Texas – Vendor sales and author book signing.  Successful first year and awesome riding in this beautiful and historic East Texas community.  Clyde is not completely convinced this actually IS the Oldest Town in Texas, but after hearing the history - beginning with Pre-historic Nacogdoches, he is not inclined to dispute their claim.  Taking in all the attractions and the constant aroma of Texas BBQ smokin’ on the grill (not to mention the bikini bike wash), this is definitely one of the top contenders for Clyde’s favorite rally!

Thursday, June 11 – Sunday June 14, 2009
Republic of Texas Motorcycle Rally, Austin, Texas – Vendor sales and author book signing. If you have never attended this rally, Clyde asks “WHY NOT?” This group of hearty individuals proved that bikers keep on rolling no matter what as they met bad weather head on – heat, tornadoes, hail and rain – but nothing could dampen the fun had by all. A special thanks to those returning “Clyde” fans – you know who you are. We are greatly touched by your continued support!

Saturday, April 25, 2009
11th Annual 2009 Blue Ribbon Rally Car & Bike Show, Lubbock, Texas – Vendor sales and author book signing. Clyde’s first year in Lubbock proved to be one of his finest hours! The people and the weather just don’t get any better than is found in Lubbock, Texas! The community came together in a big way to benefit the Family Guidance and Outreach Center of Lubbock, a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Clyde is honored to have played a small part in this most worthy cause.

2008

Friday, August 29 – Sunday, August 31, 2008
Thunder Over Texas Motorcycle Rally, Granbury, Texas – Vendor sales and author book signing. Debut of “Clyde the Glyde and the Carnival Ride” - Clyde’s most recent book release - was well received by his adoring fans. This event, the seventh and final Thunder Over Texas, was a huge success – despite a few thunderstorms - and will be greatly missed.

Friday, August 1 – Saturday, August 2, 2008

Gruene Harley-Davidson-Sturgis Week Rally, Gruene, Texas- Vendor book sales and author signing. How hot WAS it?
