The annual 4th of July rally held in Hollister, CA is back. Although it was not officially held last year because the city council couldn't seem to get their collective heads out of their butts long enough to come to any type of agreement, it is now a scheduled event for July 6-8 this year. Go to horsepowerpromotions (one word) for details. Kudos to everyone last yesr - there was talk of trashing the town by disgruntled bikers, but that didn't happen. Instead, the county and city wound up paying for a police presence that would have done a presidential visit proud. Cops were walking/riding in groups of 4-5 and more with damn near nothing to do the entire weekend. I don't even remember so much as a single fight breaking out. Since I only live a little over an hour away, I had to check it out - it was sad. There were only about 1/20 the number of vendors, no middle of the street parking, and only a handful showed up, not the fire-breathing, ass-kicking hoards that were predicted. Let's bring back the bikers, the ladies, the lady bikers, and of course the bikes this year bigger and better than ever. BTW, if you want info on other major national rallys for 2007, go to lightningcustoms and check them out.

I'm planning on riding up on Friday and leaving sometime on Sunday morning. Perhaps we should have a BK get-together?
