Corbin Hollister Motorcycle Event

The weekend before the Fourth of July, Corbin will hold it’s Third Annual Rider Appreciation Day at its Hollister Headquarters in California.

That Saturday, June 30, 2012, will feature a packed entertainment schedule, along with vendors and contests. Last year, Corbin had thousands of riders show up to help celebrate our country’s birthday and take part in the festivities and expects a much bigger crowd this year.

The Backyard Blues Band will be returning to provide music throughout the day as well as The Charlie Brechtel Band. Best known for playing southern style rock, Charlie plays the kind of rockin’ blues that is the perfect soundtrack to the biker way of life!

Charlie’s played with Greg Allman and John Lee Hooker…his CDs feature some of the best musicians in blues and rock ‘n roll today…he’s played Sturgis and countless other major biker events and venues…his tunes will be heard in upcoming specials on the History Channel and in the DVD that accompanies the book, “The Original Wild Ones.” The soul of the American biker and the music of Charlie Brechtel are truly one and the same.

Corbin is also working with Bob Warford, also known as Biker Bob to his many radio listening fans, to put on another bike show this year. Biker Bob will emcee the bike show and promises this year will be bigger and better with special goodies being handed out to the winners. Corbin is inviting all of you to enter FREE of charge.

Last year, Corbin had over 30 bikes including the home-made “World’s Fastest Indian” that set records at the Utah salt flats and was the topic of the movie by the same name, starring Anthony Hopkins. Last year Bob convinced the “powers that be” to fire it up and it was a real crowd pleaser. Anyone can enter the bike show as long as it’s ridden in (no trailer queens). Once again, Lampico Lyle, an iconic biker from Santa Cruz, will judge the event and more “special bikes” are expected to show up!

Bob created a radio program that was syndicated on four different radio stations in California where he interviewed such motorcycle legends as Evel Knievel, Willie G. and Arlen Ness plus a slew of custom bike builders and celebrities.

Bob also MC’d the Hollister Rally for 2004 and 2005 introducing top name musical artists, arm wrestling champions and women tattoo contest competitors (“Interesting where they put those things” Bob told us). Bob is also presenting a unique fund raising event for Bikers with Cancer to be held in August…details to follow.

You’ve put a lot of work into your bike and here’s your chance to garner a little attention for all of your efforts. Not just attention, but a nifty trophy or award to boot.

Six different classes will be judged:

• Street: Factory custom, non-bagger

• Custom: Chopper or exotic, 2-wheeler

• Sport: Streetfighters and more

• Touring: Baggers of all brands

• Trike: 3-Wheelers of all brands

• Best of Clubs: Patch Clubs’ favorites

Corbin is also having a trade show right on their property and the vender space is FREE; register early to make sure you get a spot.
