2019 Heart of Texas Rally: Grapes of Wrath Tour May 1-4, 2019

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Registration is already in full swing for the 2019 Heart of Texas Rally. This year's theme is The Grapes of Wrath. For those of your dirtmongers who are unfamiliar with the long-distance rally, this is not your ride to, lots of dirt, camping and tank-top type of event. No, sorry. Imagine a road-based, scavenger hunt for points style competition. There are no points for speed or finishing early, only for gathering as many points by visiting unique and interesting locations over the time span of the event. At the end, well there will be music and possibly some adult beverages, but it's the most fun you'll have while on 2 wheels while on asphalt.

The event will start and finish in Bryan, TX. I won't try to fully explain LD rallying here but a little Google searching should help. If not that, also check out Facebook pages for the NIITWIt Rally, Heart of Texas Rally, Long-Distance Motorcycle Endurance Rallying, Iron Butt Motorcycle Riders, and others. You can also check out the web page for the Iron Butt Association, Team Strange, and many many others.

The Heart of Texas Rally is open now for registration. After only 2 months, we are practically half full. Granted, space in the rally is actually incumbent upon space at the hotel, so weíll allow more than 50 if need be, but generally weíre cutting it off at 50.

Yes, there is a 65 hour, a 30 hour, and a 12 hour option, but come onÖ.do you really want to take the easy road? **** no! So far, all riders have signed up for the 65 hour option. Thatís right, they are in for the EPIC challenge and adventure that will be the Grapes of Wrath Tour. It may matter to some, maybe not to others, but if we sell-out the rally with 65 hour riders, weíre going to have some kickass live music at the finish and that is a huge goal for me.

So stop procrastinating. You want to get in on this rally. You donít have to ride balls-to-the-wall for 65 hours. Finishing wonít be hard, finishing in the top 5 will be Herculean to be sure. Some of the top rally riders around are already signed up. Donít care about that? Thatís cool too because Iím going to design this rally so that competitive riders will have a blast AND the flower-sniffers will have a fun ride around Texas. This rally is designed to appeal to all types and thatís why all you slackers need to suck it up and ride the 65 hour.

I want to close this up so that I can spend all my time planning the best event for you, the rider, instead of spending all my time marketing for riders. Sign up today. Make this a Christmas present to yourself. Sign your wife up, sign your husband up, sign your dog up, I donít care. Just sign up. Registration can be found here: https://rides.jasonjonas.com/regRequest.php?id=581 and limited information can be found at www.niitwit.com or you can visit our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/HeartofTexasRally/. Of course, as always, be the best source of information is to e-mail me at paultong971@gmail.com.

Sign up. Do it NOW!
