AF1 Bike Night this Wednesday (10/2)

October has arrived, and that means the first Wednesday of the month is Bike Night at AF1 Racing (304 E Cesar Chavez St, 78701). Hang out with fellow scooter enthusiasts in the cool evening weather tomorrow from 6pm-9pm.

AF1 Bike Night - October 2, 2013

Again, The Riff Raff and Austin Scooter Clubs would like to thank everyone who attended, hosted, and/or volunteered this past weekend for making this year’s rally another fun and memorable event.

Despite the rainy conditions that came and went over this past weekend, the Friday early ride and the Saturday In-Town and Out-of-Town rides went as scheduled. Gymkhana and the slow race also went as scheduled at Flash Motorbikes on Sunday along with all of the other scheduled meetups in-between.

Congratulations to everyone who won awards and raffle prizes. Photos from The Rally With No Name can be found at the ASC Facebook Group.
