Other then Willie n Waylon,whats with this town? Is it worth for a rider to go out of his/her way to see? Dont get me wrong i worked in a quite a few towns in Texas and met a lot of good folks there, but always wondered about Luckenbach... any stories or pictures? Thanks...

I am a ex-Texan. Many years ago(late 70s) I went there. Back then I think there was a Honky Tonk beer joint that served cold beer and long stories....
Those places sometimes have festivals, like chili cookoffs etc.

A one store town. Went there last weekend (scouting a ride) and going this weekend (for that ride) which will stop in the town for a cool beverage. They told me they have bands every day and lots of special events, like on the 23rd they have a classic car and bike event. They say they have a calendar on the net - haven't looked for it. If you want, I can take a pic of it on the way through Saturday.

We have gone to Austin the last couple of years in June for the ROT Rally. Made the trip out ot Luckenbach, I thought it was well worth it. Pretty cool place IMO. We sat under the trees, drank beer, and listened to music. Good times. :thumbup:

Back-in-the-day, Austin Texas, small bars and Honky Tonks, i got to meet Willie, Waylon, etc. It was known as "outlaw country" back then, a combo of country and rock. Cold beer and green grass ......

There is a really nice Biker bar in Bandera and I posted a couple of pictures of it about a month ago when I went to the hill country for a 3 day weekend.
