Galveston Texas is home to The Lone Star Rally – the largest motorcycle event in Texas and the second largest weekend motorcycle event in the country. “The event has become so rich and diverse with activity, manufacturers and vendors that you feel like you’re at a major bike week like Daytona or Sturgis,” said Melissa Penland of The Lone Star Rally.

From November 4th – 7th Galveston Island will roar with hundreds of thousands of motorcyclists riding The Strand and honoring the military with an appreciation themed event for 2010. The honorary Post 911 Foundation Follow the Flag Ride for Heroes gathers Friday at 4pm at The Spot, on the Seawall, and weaves its way down the Strand to Pier 21 where the Navy’s Full Steam Brass Band will serenade. All riders are invited to participate. On Saturday at 1pm the Coast Guard will do a search and rescue demonstration off Pier 21. Military displays from various branches will be on display throughout the weekend.

This year the Rat’s Hole Custom Bike Show will make its debut Texas appearance. The Rat’s Hole Show is a 30 year tradition founded by Karl Smith, Sr., aka Big Daddy Rat. If you’ve got what it takes to win the Rat’s Hole Show, show up at the Pier on Saturday morning and flaunt your bike!

Live concerts on three stages (Pier 21, Saengerfest Park and the Limpnickie Lot’s The Pit Bar on the Strand) will rock the rally with a variety of continuous music Thursday through Sunday. And the Baker Drive Train burn out ramp will be the place to show off your burn out skills in head-to-head competition.

BMW Recall

For any of you Garage-Girls rollin’ in a beamer, be sure to check to see if your model is on the recall list….
BMW is the latest to join the parade of recalls and dealer repairs. The reason for the recall of the 130,000 twin-turbo and naturally-aspirated six-cylinder models is for emissions and safety fixes.

The problem with the twin-turbo models lies in the direct injection fuel system’s high pressure fuel pump, which can cause long-crank engine start times, illumination of the “Service Engine Soon” light, reduced engine performance in a “Safe Mode,” and illumination of the “Engine Malfunction” light.
According to BMW, depending on the service history of the vehicle, the service will involve replacement of the high pressure fuel pump. BMW expects about 40,000 of the 130,000 models recalled to require a new pump. Affected models under this recall include: 2007-2010 335i; 2008-2010 135i, 535i, and X6 xDrive35i; and the 2009-2010 Z4 Roadster sDrive35i.
   In a separate recall also announced today, 20,800 2008 BMW X5s equipped with the naturally aspirated six-cylinder will be called in to replace the low-pressure fuel pump. Affected vehicles could experience complete pump failure, killing the engine and causing the power-assisted steering and brakes to lose their assist, making the vehicle much more difficult to control.
 Owners of affected vehicles will be notified in the next several weeks, with repairs to be scheduled shortly after. For more information, contact BMW at 1-800-563-4269 or email BMW Customer Relations at
