While stunt riding is not exactly our cup of tea (we prefer to keep both wheels on the ground thank you very much), you have to admit they're fun to watch! One of our all time favorites is this guy right here; Jason Pullen.
Besides being an extremely talented stunt rider, Jason happens to be the first stunter we'd ever seen tossing around a Harley as opposed to the more common streetbike. And since we like to watch his show at every opportunity, we're sponsoring his appearance at the Hollister Air Show in June.
If you'd like to catch an eyeful, just check in over at the Hollister Airshow Website or Facebook page for dates and times.
The Council voted 3-2 in favor of awarding a contract to Roadshows Inc., an entertainment booking and event management company based in Reno, NV. If that name sounds familiar, it's probably because they are the folks responsible for the Street Vibrations Rally that pops off twice a year in The Biggest Little City in the World. The Rally team will be headed up by Randy Burke, Tom Racel and Brian Holt who, between them, have a combined 75 years of rally management experience.
We would also like to take this moment to thank Police Chief Dave Westrick, Mayor Ignacio Velazquez and the City Council for their steadfast support of making the Hollister Rally a successful event that will live on for many years to come. So mark your calendars (in PEN this time) as the Hollister Rally is set for July 1-3, 2016.

Carl "Rodent" Metzger took his final journey Monday, January 18th, 2016 at the age of 79 in Daytona Beach, FL.
Rodent travelled from coast to coast, capturing and documenting motorcycle events for the rest of the world to live vicariously through. His apologue reminds all to be bold enough to live life by your own terms; be your own author.
Einstein in appearance and in advice, his critical analysis made his endorsements and opinions invaluable. His wealth of knowledge made him a better resourse than Google.
As a rolling stone gathers no moss, neither did Rodent. Scurrying around...

Big Mike (BMC) has been coming to us for a load of custom seats with higher backs for his stunt riding pals like Jason Pullen (who's autograph is embroidered on the seat above). Though our own stunt riding experience is more along the lines of spectator than rider, we couldn't help but notice the obvious benefits of the higher back.
Enter "The Wall". Built extra high in the back with a more vertical surface that Biggie's stunt buddies love but we've also found works excellent for bikes that have been hot rodded or turned into cafe racers. The vertical back offers excellent support for the more upright posture of these bikes.
Currently available for Harley-Davidson Dyna-Glides and FXR models. Get more info right HERE.
This model is designed to provide excellent comfort up front with a slick fastback tail section for a clean, modern look. Naturally the tail section is padded and upholstered to provide for short trip passengers when needed.
Like all Corbin saddles, this Gunfighter will include genuine leather seating panels and a host of color options all included at no extra charge. Look for this one to hit our New Products page in about a week!

Hollister Mayor, Ignacio Velazquez, said there are interested promotors waiting for the opportunity to run the Hollister event and is confident there will be a rally next July.

There has been a date change for the 2016 Hollister event, Please mark your calendars for July 8 - 10, 2016.
City planners and local law enforcement have carefully considered all of the factors that go into hosting this world class event and have concluded the best choice regarding the rally is to move the event to the weekend following Independence Day. This will allow organizers and law enforcement to keep personnel costs lower and assure many more years of the historic Holliser Rally.
Here at the Corbin factory, we'll be holding our traditional open house during the officialy rally weekend and will extend our rally discount from July 1 - 10 for local riders in need of Corbin gear.

The Corbin Wizard's have created our classic Canyon Dual Sport saddle which combines clean, sporty lines with good riding comfort. We've even built in the option of a passenger backrest for when you have a co-pilot along for the ride.
Built up with our high density Comfort Cell foam so we can keep a minimal line and still provide long range comfort. Ergonomic shaping helps to relieve pressure points and disperse weight better.
Naturally it's all wrapped up with genuine leather seating and a host of color and material options included.
