Ride just like the real “Wild One” at infamous Hollister Bike Run and Independence Day Rally!

Update: The 2009 rally has been canceled. The city council has decided not to sanction the 2009 Hollister rally. No motorcycle activity planned there for 2009.

What motorcycle enthusiast doesn’t imagine he’s Marlon Brando in his famous biker roll from the movie “The Wild One”? It was at the 1947 Hollister Bike Run and Independence Day Rally that the infamous “incident” played out in the movie, brought area police to the rally in riot gear to control the crowd. The occurrence went on to inspire Brando's role, cementing the black leather-jacketed “biker” image that still exists in today’s motorcycle industry.

Despite the “wild one” stereotype, every biker still dreams he’s Brando in that very role, and what better place to make that dream real than at the rally itself. Today’s historic and biker-friendly Hollister Bike Run with over 60 years in Hollister, California draws 120,000 attendees plus.

One of the attractions of the legendary Hollister Independence Day Bike Rally is the great riding scenery along the Pacific coast. Hollister is located 45 miles south of San Jose and 45 miles east of Santa Cruz, which makes a number of cool rides close. Nearby Santa Cruz offers winding roads through lush hilly areas and of course once you get there you can coast up the Boardwalk on the beach. From Santa Cruz you can cruise Highway 1 right along the coast and take in a number of incredible ocean and cliff-side views. And if you’ve got extra time, take a day’s tour through wine-country’s Napa Valley.

But the best way to take in the Hollister Bike Run is atop your personal bike. Let a travel agent take care of getting you to the California coast, and then hand over your bike to Daily Direct Motorcycle Transportation. Head west and meet your own motorcycle right at the Pacific shores. Your bike will be waiting for you - ready to ride – battery connected and fluids intact.

Daily Direct – Haul Bikes offers:

• Veteran drivers who are motorcycle riders themselves and know how to handle bikes
• A special strapping system specifically designed for motorcycle transportation
Enclosed trailers to keep your bike secure from weather
• A rate that includes insurance
References and testimonials from other satisfied customers
• Delivery of a ready-to-go product with fluids intact and battery connected

In addition to the riding, the Hollister Bike Run offers a number of other attractions: custom bike builders, bike show, live music, extreme stunt riding, Wall of Death, biker games, over 200 vendors, the biker breakfast, Miss Hollister Independence Rally pageant, tattoo contests, arm wrestling, and a beer garden. Check out the Hollister Independence Day Rally official web site to find out what’s happening and when, and then learn more about shipping your bike with the people who built your motorcycle rely on, such as Honda, and Buell – Daily Direct.
