I would like to get some opinions of the Quality of Vendors ROT has had for the past five years.
Just my opinion but it seems to m,e each yeas the high end vendors have diminshed & been replaced by
more & more cheap junk you see at every weekend swap market in Texas. Please give me some feedback
This could just be me & all the alcohol

I thought the vendors were pretty good. I have been the last three years and have seen a few that seemed to be a little shoddy, but overall, thought they were good overall.
Hope you are doing well and can't wait to see you.

It seems like the big vendors have dwindled but I suspect it might be that it cost more than they can make to go to these rallys. If so, I think it is a bad move, sometimes good will is more valuable than money.
Still I wouldn't call the other smaller vendors shoddy. Some are, but most seem to be pretty honest people with good products.

I agree, most of the vendors are pretty honest, there to have a good time and sell
their wares, but there's a few that as soon as i walk in, i quickly turn around and walk out.
I don't need to be wasting my time.

I actually look forward to seeing the vendors each year and what they have to offer. I always end up buying something.

lefty you hit the nail right on the head, quality venders gone, junk venders everywhere you turn, encluding stuff that has nothing to do with a bike rally !!!

My wife and used to vend at ROT. It was a lot of fun and we met lots of great people, but it got way too expensive to make any money!
Vending fees went through the roof and it cuts into profits very badly.

I'd sure like to see more "higher end" items for sale. It seems like every 3rd vendor was selling t-shirts or sunglasses; way too many. It would sure be nice to see people selling things like name-brand helments (Shoei, HJC, Arai..), Mustang or Saddleman seats, even new bikes. I bought a few trinkets but why is there a vendor selling kitchen cutlery at a biker rally?

we saw a vendor at one of the small rallies that sold tie downs for the bike for the toyhaulers and trailers.. thought it was cool and was surprised we hadnt seen one like that at some of the big ralllies. it would be cool to see a few more bike stuff.

Everyone needs alittle slice and dice on occasion... Yes If you want high end, your gonna pay for it, and not enough people go quality, just buy a new one if it breaks...so sad...
