Hollister Rally Approved for Next 10 YearsMotorcycle Industry News

City council sent a roaring message to the motorcycle community that officials plan to hold a downtown Hollister Rally for the next 10 years, even if city politics change” stated rally manager and CEO of World Dynamics Mark Cresswell.

The 2013 Hollister motorcycle rally – the city’s signature tradition – was the first in five years after shaky finances caused prior cancellations.

Interim City Manager Bill Avera mentioned there would be an early termination clause in any rally contracts, while he also noted that next year’s rally will be over three days, as opposed to the two days for the 2013 revival.

“Most important, it lets people know we are committed to this and will allow us to bring in major sponsorships,” Avera concluded.

The officially sanctioned biker rally started in 1997 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Boozefighters’ famed “invasion” of Hollister that inspired the Marlon Brando movie, “The Wild One.”

Mike Corbin sends his personal thanks to the thousands of riders that showed up for supporting Corbin in their efforts to keep Independence Day alive in Hollister.

“I promise you next year will be even bigger and better so plan ahead and you may be surprised to hear that we’re making our Annual Rider Appreciation Day 3 days also to coincide with the Hollister Rally”, Corbin stated.

Official Rally and Corbin Rider Appreciation Days are July 4-6th, 2014.

This year, Corbin had a wide variety of motorcycle aftermarket manufacturers set up on Corbin’s lot as well as live entertainment, a bike show, food of all kinds free factory tours throughout the day and offered a 10% event discount and free installation to everyone that attended the rally which caused a traffic jam of bikes getting custom seats tailor made to fit their bikes and bodies.
