Mike Corbin, among many others, was instrumental in bringing this rally back. Corbin is planning their 4th Annual Rider Appreciation Day during the same time as the rally.
After “The Invasion of Hollister”, the annual Gypsy Tour event went dormant for decades. In preparation for the 50th anniversary of the historic event, Sonny Barger presented the idea of a rebirth to the city of Hollister and local business people. It took a lot of effort by many people, but it didn't take long for the Hollister Independence Day Rally to become the largest Motorcycle Rally on the West Coast.
This year, attendees can expect motorcycle-only parking filling downtown Hollister with side streets devoted to a wide variety of rally vendors. Two large entertainment areas downtown will offer live entertainment and local beer gardens. On Saturday, center lane parking on the main drag will be occupied by the official bike show which is a part of the World Championship of Bike Building. Motorcycle manufacturers will be in attendance at multiple locations offering demo rides.
As always, Corbin will be running factory tours throughout the day and will also be offering a 10% discount on all Corbin products throughout the week. Installation of Corbin goodies is always free at the Corbin factory and you can make an appointment to have your new seat made.
