Photos: ROT Rally Weekend 2013

ROT Rally riders sped to a safer celebration this year.

Another Republic of Texas Biker Rally has come and gone.

In contrast to years past, this year’s ROT Rally was marred by fewer deaths and injuries. Only one death was reported – on Thursday, when a woman fell off a motorcycle into a guardrail on Interstate 35. Austin/Travis County EMS have listed all its motorcycle incident responses over ROT Rally weekend. 

Still, that’s an improvement over last year’s rally, when three motorcycle riders were killed. Event organizers estimated the rally attracted as many as 200,000 people.
