In case you're wondering whatever did they do to get JLL to do a second show!?! Between the first and
second shows, they presented him with a brand new, limited 100th anniversary edition 2003 FXST Harley
Davidson motorcycle with a gold key!!! The attached photo will give you a glimpse into
Jerry's delight with his new toy!

and more information:


"It wasn't easy to talk Jerry Lee Lewis into doing two shows on Saturday night-he told us that he hadn't
done two shows back-to-back in twelve years-but when we promised to buy him a motorcycle, he finally gave in.
Jerry Lee already owns a 1958 Harley (and he claims that it still runs fine), but he wanted a newer bike.
We presented him with the keys backstage between his shows, but he came to Austin in a Lear Jet and had
no way of getting it home. So one day next week, ROT Rally organizers Jerry Bragg and Jim Henry will be
trailering Jerry Lee's bike to his house a few miles south of Memphis. Jerry Lee actually lives just
outside of the little whistle-stop hamlet of Nesbit, Mississippi."
