Just received word from the Corbin folks that the Hollister Rally is coming together nicely and is on track for July 2013. The city of Hollister and local businesses are prepping for a great re-introduction of this historic event scheduled for July 5th & 6th, 2013. Progressive Insurance is rolling into town with a full custom 34 foot RV, which will house Progressive's Interactive Experience on site, running both days from 9am to 9pm. Features include The Insiders Guide, a virtual destination adventure, Custom T-shirt Press, Progressive Lounge and Pickles Pet Shop where visitor's pets get a special treat.
The Jack Daniel's Experience will be in town for the rally also, just a short distance from the Hollister Rally's ACE Cafe. You'll also find Triumph Motorcycles and Iron & Air Magazine right next to the Schott and ACE Cafe-run Beer garden. And lastly, House of Thunder Harley-Davidson has signed on as a presenting sponsor of the Hollister Motorcycle rally for the 4th of July weekend. The House of Thunder display can be found on the corner of San Benito and 6th streets in downtown Hollister. Other special events will take place at their Morgan Hill location all weekend long.
On the north side of town, at Mike Corbin's Workshop, Corbin will be hosting a Bike Show on Friday as a warm-up to the official rally show on Saturday. Joining in this special event will be industry veteran Craig Vetter and a host of motorcycles that are part of the Vetter Fuel Economy Challenge (http://www.craigvetter.com). Other classes include Bobbers, Choppers, Radical Baggers, Antiques and more. All makes and models are welcome and there is no cost to enter.
Corbin is also happy to welcome Terry Hershner to the festivities. Terry has just finished a cross country trip aboard a Zero motorcycle. That's more difficult than it sounds -- Zero motorcycles are 100% electric powered, so a lot of special attention was needed to calculate the range and capabilities of these unique machines.
As a bonus, Corbin is offering a 10% discount on all Corbin accessories ordered during the Hollister Rally. In addition to Corbin's Hollister Rally discount, all Corbin accessories are eligible for free installation.
