Great news. The citizens of Hollister approved the 2023 Hollister Motorcycle Rally. And they decided that the date will be on the 4th of July weekend. But the city has not got back with the Rally promoters.

As you most likely know, over the last decade, there have been numerous challenges in holding the Hollister Rally. For example, there have been cancellations, problems with the City of Hollister, and multiple promoters.

Next, the name changed a number of years ago to the Hollister Independence Rally.

Hollister the Birthplace of the “American Biker”

There are some notable items relating to the Hollister motorcycle rally. First, the City of Hollister is the birthplace of the “American biker.” This is because of an “incident” in 1947. Back then, some bikers had a little too much fun. But it was blown of proportion.

Notably, the incident got a lot of media attention. But there were fabrications and exaggerations. For instance, the infamous picture of a guy sitting on a motorcycle with beer bottles all around him was set up the day after the “incident.” This began the persona of a biker.

In addition, the “incident” in Hollister inspired Marlon Brando’s movie “The Wild One.” With these two items, the persona of the American biker was born.
