Hollister, CA – Corbin announced today that they will have all types of entertainment ranging from live music to custom bike shows to filling your stomach on all kinds of food at Corbin’s 4th Annual Rider Appreciation Day on Friday and Saturday, July 5&6th,2012. 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 since the city has approved the Hollister Rally and the event covers 2 days for the first time. The “Idea Guy” over at Corbin that’s in charge of all of the wizards, Mike Corbin, was instrumental in getting the Hollister Rally started again.

Just like last year, many of the industry’s top companies will be displaying their products right on Corbin’s property. The main show for exhibitors will be held in downtown Hollister, but Corbin started this Rider Appreciation Show and has allowed venders to display the products since the first year. Many of the more recognized names in the industry that will be there: Barnett Tool & Engineering, Motion Pro Inc., Wind Vest Products, Stripclub Choppers, West Speedway Shelters, Ride Wright Wheels, Samson Exhaust, Old School Eyewear, Cycle Gear Inc., House of Thunder HD, Baggerwerx, Motorcycle Machine, Lily’s Fresh Fruit, Vintage Legends, Renegade Classics, among many others.

The city council has confirmed along with the event management company Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Victory will participate in the Hollister Rally and will be set up Downtown for demonstration rides, displays, etc. Also, the folks from JD will be bringing the “Jack Daniel’s Experience” to town which is always a great place to share a drink with a friend.

Corbin is 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! 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!

Ironworks will again be offering the “Ironworks Best of Show” award which includes a feature in the magazine. We’ll photograph the bike in the studio immediately following the awards presentation. Our bike show is the day BEFORE the official Hollister Rally bike show so people can enter both bike shows and double the exposure. (The Corbin bike show pre-registration form is now online)This year we’ve reworked the classes a bit and are adding a couple of special awards. Here’s how the bike show classes shape up so far for Hollister 2013:

  • Best Paint Job
  • Best Graphics / Pin Stripes
  • Best Antique Pre-1920
  • Best Antique 1921 – 1950
  • Best Antique 1951 – 1970
  • Best Radical Bagger
  • Best Modified Stock Bagger
  • Best Old School Chopper
  • Best Bobber Best Modified Stock Cruiser
  • Best Modified Sportbike
  • Best Trike Special “Hollister Bike” award

Last year, Corbin had over 60 custom bikes in the bike show…the world land speed record holder Rocky Robinson and his twenty-one foot record holding streamliner Ack Attack was also on display. For those who don’t follow such things, Rocky and Crew upped the ante for the World’s Fastest Motorcycle to over 376mph (two way average) in September of 2010. The effort netted a top speed of 394mph in their race for the record.
