Another Great Rally!
Another Hollister Rally is in the history books and it was a great event.
Hollister Mayor Ignacio Velazquez, the key proponent in reviving the motorcycle rally in 2013, declared the 2016 event a major success due to larger-than-expected crowds and no major crime incidents.
"The new promoter did a great job," Velazquez said Tuesday while on a family vacation after the rally. "Now we're going to see the turnaround." Velazquez didn't have attendance numbers immediately available but said the crowds were a lot bigger than city officials had expected.
We're working on our 2016 Hollister Rally wrap up now and will post it right Here

Sparrow Debut is Near
We're getting parts out of the the paint booth and it looks like it's all coming together for the July World Debut.
The team has pulled together a beautiful color which Mike has dubbed "Solor Sunrise" that will be used not only on this vechicle but on all of the beta test cars. With plenty of Gold Pearl, it absolutely sparkles in the sunlight
The R&D boys are hard at it assembling and pulling together the final details for Sparrow's official lauch this coming Fourth of July weekend during the Hollister rally.
For additional details, check out the Sparrow pages right Here
The new Corbin Sparrow will debut Fourth of July weekend at the Corbin factory in Hollister, CA!
This is the latest incarnation of the original Corbin Sparrow that captured the hearts and minds of EV enthusiasts in the late 1990's and early 2000's. Though the Sparrow fell out of production in 2003, the dream has lived on.
More than a decade later, Corbin's three wheeled, all electric commuter vehicle is poised to reemerge. With the new lithium-Ion battery pack and advanced controller, the Sparrow is estimated to provide a top speed of 80mph with a 100 mile range.
Shown here is the first prototype vehicle still in primer, but you can see the finished result during the Hollister Rally
July 1-3, 2016.
Info from some new friends...
"I just wanted to send you an email on behalf of the students that I teach. These kids have been learning about what they can do to stay safe on the road and wanted to spread some knowledge with others! We recently found a site that has a list of excellent resources on it."
"We wanted to know if you could help them out by adding the link to your page? I promised them a pizza party as a reward for the hard work they have done, and they will be very happy to see that their info was useful to others."
Thanks gang, we can all use a refresher course now and again! Click on the pic for the link.

First Seat for Octane
The boys in R&D have set new speed standards in saddle design by releasing our first seat model for the Victory Octane already... Just twelve days after getting the bike!
Due to the sporty design of the Octane, we started with our classic Gunfighter Saddle
that pairs excellent rider comfort with a fast, sporty look.
Notice how the tail section is sculpted just like the tank and fender for a totally integrated look while the front seat offers over five inches of vertical back support for long range comfort. Naturally it's all wrapped up in a custom cover made to order with leather seating panels included.
Fresh out of the photo studio, the Octane Gunfighter saddle will be listed on our New Products
